🏃 Dundee Half Marathon 🏃

Back in 2012, Neil Flynn ran the Liverpool Marathon, raising over £1500 for PDWRA.

Fast forward a few years and he’s decided to enter the Dundee Half Marathon on 7 July, to raise more funds for PDWRA.

Every little helps – please click on the link below to support Neil if you can.

Thank you so much – and good luck, Neil, next Sunday!

Would you like to help Flo – post updated

Flo recently came into rescue in a very sorry state.

She was initially rescued from a puppy farm by a couple, but sadly her problems were too great for them to cope with.

Flo is only 3 but was used as a breeding bitch on a puppy farm – kept crated for most if not all of the day.

She has numerous infections, some that are quite worrying.

She is due to have surgery to spay her and have further investigations on her bladder and kidneys, whilst under sedation.

If you feel able to help with the vet costs involved, please donate in the usual way – please use the reference “Help Flo”.

You can also make a bank transfer to PDWRA:

Lloyds TSB
Sort Code 30.99.62
Account No. 00144121

*** Update 24 June: Flo has had her spay, and whilst she was under anaesthetic she was x rayed and a very large stone (pictured below) was found. This was immediately removed and Flo is now recovering well and is much more comfortable. Thank you to all who have donated. ***

Tombola items needed – can you help?

We have a number of events coming up that PDWRA will be attending.

We understand that not all of you can help, or get to the events, but we would really appreciate your help with tombola items.  These do not need to be costly, but PDWRA tombolas in previous years have been hugely successful, and help enormously to raise funds.

If you are happy to donate items, please email Deb at for her address,

or, better still,

order them through 😊 Amazon Smile 😊 
and get them delivered direct to Deb.

These items will be distributed between all of the teams and their events – the first event is on Saturday, 8 June.

Thank you for supporting PDWRA.

Bubble and Squeak

Bubble and Squeak

Possibly our hardest to home are bonded pairs such as Bubble and Squeak, pictured above.

These two were surrendered recently due to a change in family circumstances.  Aged 5 they have been together since puppies. They are a lovely sweet natured pair who hopefully will soon find their forever home.

If you feel you are able to offer a special home to a pair of pugs, then please complete our online application form below, and make sure you answer YES when asked if you would adopt a bonded pair.
