Established for over 50 years – Helping Pugs in Need!

PDWRA’s essential work, Rescuing, Rehabilitating and Rehoming Pugs, can only occur due to the generosity of volunteers and donators.
f you are able to help in any way to raise funds, we and our pugs are truly grateful!

Here’s what was achieved in the first 3 months of the year:


Then by early June, this was what our dedicated PDWRA Volunteers achieved for Pugs in Need:

YOU too can HELP by

Donating Here


If you are not already a member of the PDWRA Mega Auction For Pugs In Need, please join this Facebook Group with over 5,500 members!

Our dedicated volunteers who run the Mega-Auction all year round, are Pippa, Catherine and Carolyn.
They have an amazing array of auction lots ranging from hand-made greeting cards to pug related items like the immensely popular & unique Knitted Pugs with very individual, detailed outfits!

Branded goods, jewellery & even holidays have been donated too, this year!
ALL Funds raised go directly towards the care of PDWRA pugs. 
You can Bid, Buy or Donate items!

If you have any items you would like to donate, please contact Pippa, Catherine or Carolyn via the Mega Auction Facebook Group at: PDWRA Mega Auction For Pugs In Need | Facebook


Could you help PDWRA by holding a small fundraising event or via your Business, Crafts, Hobbies or Sports?

Shirley, responded to one our appeals last year having lost her poodle and had health problems herself but wanted to offer Daphne a home. They have been best buddies ever since!
However, Shirley is an extremely talented artist who has been raising money for other dog breed charities and raised over £10,000 just by drawing people’s dogs. She is now offering her skills to raise funds for PDWRA, though it’s not restricted to pug drawings!
For the £15 donation for each drawing, which includes post & packaging, Shirley generously donates £10 to PDWRA! Such amazingly beautiful bargains!

If you are interested, please join the Mega-Auction to find out more or order your own:

This is one of Shirley’s drawings of Daphne
Shirley will draw anything with four legs!

Shirley has donated over * £1,060 * from the proceeds of her unique drawings so far this year, and is still going strong every week of every month.

Shirley’s To-Do List needs replenishing, so if YOU would like a unique, original drawing of any furry friend please join PDWRA’s Mega-Auction group to contact her & provide your photos!
We can’t thank Shirley enough! 👏  All recipients are so happy with their personal artwork of their beloved subjects!

Another PDWRA supporter, Jayne, who creates handmade cards and illustrations, raised * £150 * last summer for PDWRA in a fundraiser to mark the 15th birthday of her late, gorgeous pug Henry. He was her inspiration for her business Onelittlepug, so his legacy lived on! In fact Jayne went on to adopt Arlo and Nora from us nearly 6 months ago. To celebrate this anniversary and what would have been Henry’s 16th Birthday, she has added a few new designs to raise funds for PDWRA.

Her lovely range of handmade cards, with many featuring pug illustrations, can be found at her Etsy shop: onelittlepug – Etsy UK   

A portion of all proceeds is donated to PDWRA, so you’ll also be helping out Pugs in Need!


We have many local pug groups who regularly remember us when they get-together or hold events. Most recently down in the beautiful region of Cornwall, a memorial walk was held for a truly beloved pug, Magnolia.

Her Mum Mandy, who has fundraised for us with her crafts in the past, together with the wonderful pug owners in their group, collected and donated £50 to PDWRA, which we are very grateful for. 


Lynn, seen here, uses every opportunity to fundraise for the PDWRA. She’s famed for her Teddy Tombola’s appearing at many local community events. She generously made and donated over * £1,200 * from her efforts this summer to PDWRA.

We received another donation of * £170 * from the sale of festive soldiers and reindeers that Lynn’s husband Geoff created. They have a grumble of five male pugs, including fosters with substantial needs, who they welcomed with open arms and never let them go! 

We couldn’t be more grateful to fundraisers like Lynn. “Thank You” from Pugs in Need!
