Give A Holiday Gift: Open Your Heart to a Pug

Give A Holiday Gift: Open Your Heart to a Pug

SACRAMENTO,CA--With the holidays comes an incredible need, one that is not seen by most, but when discovered hard to ignore.

Cuddly, warm- hearted, peppy Pugs of all ages are left homeless in a season when animals are not top priority.

Some are abandoned, others surrendered only to be left at a shelter or area pound where their lives are often cut short due to overcrowding.  

Pug Rescue of Sacramento is a non-profit organization dedicated to making sure that doesn’t happen. PRO’s is comprised of Bay Area and Sacramento volunteers prepared to mobilize when needed, but during the winter months their numbers are few. That’s why PRO’s is asking for the community’s help to lend a hand and save a warm-hearted, loyal Pug in need of a loving home.
