Dallas/Ft. Worth Pug Rescue Newsletter - December 2016
A Season for Giving
Volunteers and donors are the heart and soul of DFW Pug Rescue. Each day over 120 men and women are
giving their time and resources to help rescued pugs recover and prepare for adoption. Some volunteers donate their special talents such as Chris Snodgrass who painted this loveable Santa Pug portrait and donated it to DFW Pug Rescue and Marti Shafer,
Scentsy Consultant, who donated a portion of her holiday sales to raise funds for our special needs Pugs. Or, Jeffrey Feole, owner of
The Boxer Gang Photography
, who volunteered to take photos of our fosters to be posted on all of our social media and adoption websites. We also have volunteer groups, such as our Social Media Team and Crafty Ladies who use their professional talents and skills to give rescued Pugs a second chance. What can you give? As we approach the 20
Anniversary of DFW Pug Rescue Club, look for new and exciting ways that you can become involved and support our vision:
"No Pug Left Behind".
A Season for Miracles
Kicker was found dumped on a country road near Crowley, LA. He was in terrible shape. During his time under the care of DFW Pug Rescue, he was treated for multiple skin issues, including Saracoptic Mange, ear infections, heartworms and intestinal parasite issues. He had an eye removed that was too damaged to save. During this season of Miracles, we celebrate the spirit of rescue, recovery and foster care that is supporting Kicker on his journey to a second chance in life.

that began Kicker's
journey in July 2016.
A Season for Family, Love & Pug Hugs
During this holiday season we remember the smiles of those who adopted rescued Pugs this year. By the end of the year, we will have placed over 300 Pugs in forever homes. Here are just some of the Happy Tails moments from 2016.
A Season to Celebrate
DFW Pug Rescue Club has achieved historical milestones this year:
Highest number of rescued pugs in the Club's history
35% increase in the number of pugs placed in forever homes
20% increase in the number of volunteers and foster homes
A record high number of special need pugs
Your support throughout the year has made it possible for us to provide extensive veterinary treatment, medications, and follow-up care to hundreds of very sick pugs. By the end of the year, we expect our veterinary bills to exceed $200,000.
As part of your
Year End Giving
, we hope you will consider a donation to DFW Pug Rescue. Your gift will ensure that rescue services, veterinary treatment, and foster care are available to help more pugs next year.
You are the heart and soul of DFW Pug Rescue. Thank you for your continuing support, love for pugs, and commitment to "No Pug Left Behind".
May the Spirit of Christmas guide you home...Happy Holidays from DFW Pug Rescue Club!!
