WE NEED YOUR HELP. Central Coast Pug Rescue is a very small group of volunteers (less than toes on one paw) committed to bringing in these pugs daily to give them the medical care they need for a second chance at a loving home. August exhausted our funds with over $8,000 in veterinary expenses. We are constantly challenged to find open foster homes and overwhelmed by the cost of medical care. Cassie underwent knee surgery last week, Duke is recovering from a 3 day stay in the hospital fighting pneumonia. And, Paige is in intensive care after having her toe removed from a mast cell tumor, her life is threatened as as we wait for a second biopsy suspecting the cancer is also in her leg. We simply cannot continue at this pace without your support and every little bit helps. There is a direct link to donate here on our Facebook page or consider volunteering. We need folks to do fundraising and of course, the never ending need for foster homes. We strive to never say no to a pug in need but cannot do this work without the help of ongoing committed volunteers. Please email us at : Info@helppugs.com for more information about ways to help pugs.
It was a great weekend for Central Coast Pug Rescue, first at “Puttin’ on the Dog” in Arroyo Grande on Saturday and then at the annual “Wags ‘n Whiskers” adoption event in Goleta on Sunday! Shadow and Rocco got adopted, our kissing booth was in full force and we met a lot of pug lovers. If you’d like to volunteer to help us with events like these in the future please contact Deb at firstname.lastname@example.org!

China was experiencing a difficult birth and was surrendered to Bakersfield Vet Hospital. She is under a year old. We were called to take her and puppies into our care ( who we are told are mixed with Maltese ) This was an expensive surgery and hospital stay, happy to say – everyone is doing great. She had two male puppies we have named Tank & Dozer. At first, she didn’t know what these wiggly things were and what they wanted from her, so we bottle fed the babies until she understood they needed her milk. Happy to say, she is nursing her boys. They are just over 2 weeks old and 1 lb. each More photos to come….
