Thanks to YOUR support of Pugs & Pints, we raised $871 and donated it to Mid Atlantic Pug Rescue. They recently rescued a stray pug named Remington Bean from a shelter and he needs a few masses removed, so we’re here to help thanks to YOU. And, we think he’s pretty adorable!
Thank you to everyone who attended or was there in spirit at our inaugural Pugs & Pints event at Denzen’s Brewing Co. in Silver Spring! Even though we had unusually hot weather for October, our pug and pug-allied friends braved the conditions for a fun afternoon. Best of all, thanks to your support, we raised $871 for pug rescues! Take a peek at the fun:
Stay tuned for our next event in Spring 2019: Pigs & Pinot complete with rescue potbelly pigs at a local winery!
Join Pigs & Pugs Project for an afternoon of sipping locally made craft beers in the beer garden with your favorite pug* . . . and for a good cause.
Kentucky Fish and Wildlife has taken custody of 458 mini pigs in Pendleton County, Kentucky. We have been given a very limited amount of time to place this pigs into new homes, foster homes, and rescues. Any pigs not placed will end up euthanized. Atti’s Acres has been the sanctuary closest in location to these pigs and has been helping around the clock to save these pigs.
Pig Advocates League, along with Cotton Branch Farm Sanctuary, Ziggy’s Refuge, Red Oak Animal Rescue (ROAR), and Esther’s Army have teamed up with Atti’s Acres to save as many of these animals as possible.
The state of Kentucky is requiring all pigs going to private homes and fosters to be spayed/neutered prior to leaving. All pigs must be micro-chipped and if leaving the state have a valid health certificate. The cost of this mission is going to be astronomical, both in money and man-power.
Here are some ways you can help:
•ADOPT! We need homes for as many as possible! We are also looking for rescues/sanctuaries that can provide temporary holding for pigs going to homes. If you are able to help, please complete an adoption/foster application here.
•VOLUNTEER! We need help on the scene, and behind the scenes. The volunteer form can be found here.
•DRIVE TRANSPORT! Anyone willing to transport pigs, via crates or trailers, please complete our transport volunteer form here.
•DONATE today! We can only save those we can have vetted, spayed/neutered, and transported. Donations can be sent via PayPal to email@example.com or by clicking the Donate button at the bottom of this page.
Last month we watched as a rescue of nearly 30 pugs from a Mississippi backyard breeder took place. To help support their efforts, we donated $100 to Pug Hearts of Houston (top photo showing the rescued pugs heading to safety), $100 to Dallas Pug Rescue (second photo showing more of the rescued pugs), and $100 to Mid-Atlantic Pug Rescue (third photo showing Cherokee’s improvement after some TLC).
Here’s what Pug Hearts wrote about the rescue on their Facebook page:
