Donation to Tiny Paws Pug Rescue

Meet Mitzi. Can you stand that smile?! She was found stray in Sacramento and Tiny Paws Pug Rescue is working to get her healthy. They are a non-profit 501(c)3 who provide the adoption of surrendered, lost, or abandoned pugs in Northern and Central California.

To help support their efforts, Pigs & Pugs donated $150 toward her care and we’re loving watching her transformation over on Instagram.

Donation to Life with Pigs

Life with Pigs Farm Animal Sanctuary is a 501c3 nonprofit located in Williamsburg, Virginia. It’s dedicated to educating people about the injustices faced by animals and how we can better coexist with our fellow earthlings. They operate under the guiding principle that animals are our equals and deserve equal consideration for their needs and desires.

Charlotte, one of their beautiful pig rescues, was the guest of honor at our spring event and we all fell in love with her. To help support their efforts in raising awareness about pigs, we donated $100 and look forward to visiting and volunteering soon.

Donation to Humane Rescue Alliance

Meet Doug. He is a 12-year-old senior, who has lived enough life to have a lot of opinions and know exactly what he wants (which currently includes attention and treats, in that order). Doug resides at the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) in Washington, DC, where he’s getting excellent care, as he waits patiently—or in Doug’s case, not so patiently—to find his forever home.

And that’s where Pigs & Pugs comes in. We’ve sponsored Doug’s time at HRA, so he can have soft bedding, fun toys, yummy food, and all the medical care a senior pup may require. Something tells us that Doug’s stay with HRA won’t last long, given his good looks and extreme confidence, but while he’s there, Pigs & Pugs will be helping to ensure he has the finer things in life.

Update: Doug has been adopted!
