    Thank you so much everyone for coming out to support both Southwest PA Pugs with Special Needs & Guardian Angels Pug Rescue. I hope everyone had a fun day. We raised just under $4,000 which will be split between the 2 rescues. I can't tell you how excited I am that we can pay down our past due vet bills now and the remainder will go towards our current rescues' medical & ongoing expenses & continued rescue efforts. Thank you again.

    Do we need to bring "proof of shots?"

    October 8, 2013

    • Matthew R.

      Last year they didn't require you to show the actual papers but you are expected to have your dog up to date on all shots.

      October 8, 2013

    • Chelle A.

      Thanks so much for the reply. We are definitely up to date on shots. I just wondered if I had to get a new listing from the vet this week. See you there!

  • Dolly P.

    Ihave been to lthe last 3 and I get papaers from the vet stating what shops they have had and I take those just in case they ask.I would rather have them then be turned away for something so simple.

  • Dale E. C.

    That would be great Wendy, I guess I won't be able to reach the guy till tomorrow. He has a puggle and a pug with other dogs and I'm not sure but maybe he can at least foster the fella.

  • Wendy T.

    Is anyone aware of available rescue shelters or foster parents in our area. A puggle in Ford City is in need. Current owners have steadily become disabled, and are unable to give them proper care.
