REMINDER: Accidents will happen, but you are responsible for cleaning up after your own pug! So, remember to keep an eye on him/her. Be vigilent and mindful when eating during events as many pugs have allergies and those scraps you drop could cause health issues to someone's precious pug! Immediately dispose of garbage and do not leave plates, napkins or beverages, unattended at any time. Never feed someone else's pug without express permission.

PRSDC Needs Your Help!

As an all volunteer based rescue we rely on donations and support from you! Our followers. We appreciate each and every one of you. As an organization we do fairly well between fundraiser events. However sometimes we get overwhelmed with rescues. The first week of September 2013, we took in 11 pugs and spent over $7000 in medical costs, not including care, food, transport, placement. Unfortunately these emergency situations have drained our reserves and once again we are reaching out for a plea for donations. We cannot do more... Cannot save another pug without funds. Our amazing Adoptions Representative will have to say no to any more incoming pugs, healthy or not until more donations come in. Medical is where over 90% of our funds go to, it is not free, and while we have amazing vets we NEED YOUR HELP! Please give today please consider when you see the pleas or see the pleading for funding there is a team of folks behind those adorable faces trying to save as many as we can. EVERY dollar matters, every donation is important. Do something today that changes everything! Help save our rescue, save our pets, and care for all needed medical. Thank you!!!

PRSDC has been in business and operating for over 20 years! In that time frame we have gone above and beyond our abilities to save and care for any pugs in our reach. We pull from shelters across California and beyond, we save them from euthanasia, we take in those abandoned, injured and neglected. We give pugs a second chance. We assist owners who are no longer able to care for their pets due to death, illness, finances and economic times. As an organization we are all non-paid volunteers. Most of us work full time jobs and then add in PRSDC. We host events throughout the year, raising awareness, collecting donations, and working tirelessly to keep our organization afloat.

Much like with other business’ we too are struggling in this economy. For the first time in a long time we are in the negative. We have depleted our funds and are no longer financially thriving. We have taken in an unexpected number of pugs this year, many of them seniors with expensive medical issues. Yet still, when a plea comes in to pull a senior dog from a shelter that has been abandoned by the only family he knows, we do it. Knowing it will most likely cost an additional $1500 to bring the dog to proper health, we still do it to save the animal. We struggle, donate our time, money and abilities. We do it for the betterment of the animals, and to give second, sometimes third and fourth chances to animals with no other options. If you follow us regularly you will have noticed that in the past 6 months we have sent out a few pleas. The pleas were there as our savings went down; so, worried about our future, we reached out to our network. We sincerely thank everyone who donated from the bottom of our hearts! You have kept us going. However, now is the moment of truth for us. We need you more than ever. Please make a donation in honor of Pug Rescue of San Diego. In honor of all the animals left in shelters, all those who have lost their families, families who have lost their homes and relinquished their pets. These dogs only want a loving family, and we work hard to give that to them. We provide them a forever home, a forever life. And we do it with the utmost passion, protection, love, care, diligence and trust.
