I have confirmation there is space available but I need to get the application in ASAP, any volunteers? I have pug books on the way and hopefully they will be here in time, just emailed the guy for an update:-) I have found an inexpensive magnet "Adopt - don't Shop" 6" oval I can order as well as some pug prints and we can put out a donation can. Any other suggestions?

"I am involved in dog rescue: my wallet and gas tank are always running on empty, my house is never quiet and free of dog hair, nor is my car, my inbox is full of ongoing despair and misery, but my heart and soul are replenished with unconditional love, loyalty, and joy that can only come from a rescued dog!" ~ Author Unknown
