As you know, we recently rescued 37 pugs, all at once. 
They are all still being assessed by our medical team, but most importantly, all have been named! 
For just a tease, we have a Mrs. Puff, M'Lady Pug, Jujube, Pixel, Mazda, Carlos, and Romper, to name a few!

Out of the 37, one needed emergency surgery. Tia, a 3-year-old fawn female had some of her intestines partially outside of her body.  She underwent a 2.5 hour emergency surgery Tuesday morning and so far....

And some more good news - the first small batch of pugs tested has been found to be heartworm negative!!!!

Rescue leaders thank Creekside Pet Care Center of Keller, Texas, hospital manager Kim Grisham, and Dr. Fisher for all they have done to help us bring these pugs to safety. Also a big thanks to Westcreek for helping us provide boarding for the largest influx of rescues we have ever experienced in such a short period.

 Wondering what you can do to help us now? Right now? Today?

To date, our veterinary and rescue transportation costs stand at $19,700. 
And this is just the beginning.

Please consider:

Stay tuned for more updates!!!
