PDWRA at Bulldogs Unleashed

Great day had at Bulldogs Unleashed, the Edward Foundation were perfect hosts, we had lots of lovely visitors, Welfare and foster pugs – and raised an amazing £109 to boot.

Thank you to everyone who donated, especially Maureen, Dawn and Hazel – stalwart supporters!

✉️ We are still collecting stamps! ✉️

We are still collecting stamps – and just look at the latest amount raised!

Thank you to all our friends far and wide for their postage stamps.  A few add to many, and recently we received a cheque for £289.29 which is a tremendous result.

With Christmas coming, please keep collecting them as we receive £10 per kilo for used stamps.

Please continue to support us by saving your used postage stamps, trimming them as explained in the poster below, and sending them to the address shown in the poster.

Why not ask your family and friends to save their stamps too?

🐾 “It’s all in the fostering brief …”🐾

Sent to us by one of our lovely foster carers in Yorkshire: someone recently asked her what’s involved with being a foster carer for PDWRA.  This was her message:

“It’s all in the fostering brief …
Love them, love them some more.
Try to work out what they need.
Love them some more.
Think about them leaving.
Love them some more.
Watch them leave.
Love them some more.
When they leave, remember they are loved.
Some more.
It’s how we look at it.”

Yorkshire Student Event

On 8th October volunteers from across Yorkshire took their pugs to meet students from Digs Student Accommodation in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

We played ‘stick the tongue on the pug’ and ‘name the pug’, and the students had a great time playing with the pugs while the owners enjoyed a cuppa!!  Pip, who fosters (with her mum Maria and dad Marcus), raffled off her soft toy collection in aid of PDWRA – thanks Pip we know it was a big sacrifice to part with them!

It was lovely that the students had such a lovely time and they got lots and lots of cuddles!  As we left they said “this has been the best night ever!” And “please, please, please come back soon!!”

We raised over £150 and are excited to be going back on the 8th December for a fabulous Pug Christmas Party.

Good news from AmazonSmile

So this is why we fundraise!

In the x-ray of the pug, the large “egg shaped” things you can see are stones in the pug’s bladder.  They have been removed under anaesthetic and are in the metal dish.

As you can imagine, this will have been very painful for a long time, and could have caused the pug’s bladder to rupture.

These stones can be caused by a number of things, including poor diet, and dogs not being able to urinate frequently enough because they are left for long periods of time.

Luckily for this pug, we have fantastic supporters whose continued generosity has enabled her to have the emergency surgery she required immediately after being surrendered to PDWRA.

Thank you to everyone who contributes – together we make a difference, and no pug waits!
