🐾 Thank you to West Yorkshire Pugs 🐾

An amazing £405 raised from West Yorkshire Pugs Fun Day last weekend!

Thank you so much, especially to everyone who contributed, organised and executed events on the day itself; Lisa Butland (and family), Jackie Ward, Alison Mount, Andrea Slater and Maureen Watson (for so many generous Tombola/Raffle donations).

 

Do you have a Pets At Home VIP card?

Did you know you can help PDWRA if you shop at Pets At Home and have a VIP Card?

All you need to do is go to “Your Profile” – look for Lifelines – and type in “HUNTINGDON” store, and then Pug Dog Welfare & Rescue Association will come up as one of the Charities to choose.

Or follow the instructions if you have the app in the picture – it’s that easy!

The points convert to money for PDWRA to purchase essentials for our surrendered dogs – we have been asked to find new homes for 42 pugs this month.

😧 Pug No. 350 – 2019 update😧

For the first time ever in the history of our Charity, we have today been asked to find a new home as soon as possible for Pug No. 350.

Yes, that’s right. Number 350. 😧

Just before Christmas.

This is due to a relationship breakup and a move to rented accommodation where, sadly, the pug is not allowed.

Who knows whether we will also see Pug No. 351 – and more – before the end of the year?

And this is why we and our supporters and volunteers are continually fundraising by running auctions, all sorts of other events, walks, meet-ups etc.

Your help and support have never been needed more than now.  Please visit Donating to Pug Dog Welfare to help Pug No. 350 and the others who will follow.

2 January 2019 update 

And they did follow.  Another 6 pugs.

Our total intake onto the Rehoming Register for 2018 was 356 pugs.  That’s almost one pug per day.

And on New Year’s Day we were asked to find a new home for Pug No. 001 for 2019.  Very sadly, this is due to the death of his owner.

 

 

🎵 Let’s hear it for the boys …🎵

🎵 Let’s hear it for the boys – let’s give the boys a chance 🎵

We find that many of our boys are overlooked in preference for the girls.  Why, we’re not sure.  The boys are equally as special and just as loving.

Here are just some of our adopted boys in their homes.

🎵 Please consider adopting a male pug 🎵

New adoption applications can be submitted online starting Monday 7 January.   

⭐Christmas Mega Auction result⭐

 

⭐ An incredible £12,113.71 ⭐

An enormous thank you to everyone who has donated and bid on items in this auction.  You truly are amazing supporters of PDWRA.

As before, Rachel and team have worked tirelessly to make this event such a wonderful success.  We are truly grateful, and so are all the pugs who will benefit from your donations.

⭐ THANK YOU EVERYONE ⭐

“Living in a Box”

We have the BEST foster carers – we know that – but now their family members are flying the PDWRA flag too!

Massive thanks to foster Mum Extraordinaire Maria, and her daughter Pip, who raised £135 for us by “Living in a Box” for 24 hours!

Pip and a school friend were sponsored to do various tasks whilst “in the box” and of course their foster pugs wanted to “help” too.

What goes in … has to come out again after 24 hours!

Keeping busy … At least their bedrooms will remain tidy!

Room for another pug?
