3 RESCUES 1 MISSION
It all started with Buffalo Pug and Small Breed Rescue working with a rescue Saving Harbin Dogs out of Beijing China and committing to bring a group of 27 French Bulldogs and English Bulldogs into their rescue. Then came the message that there were 25 + pugs needing rescue as well.
Buffalo Pug and Small Breed reached out to Green Mountain Pug Rescue and PRoNE to see if we could help. A collaboration was formed and working together, our 3 rescues have committed to saving these 25 pugs. We have been working furiously over the past couple of days on the logistics of such an endeavor and want to share this news with all of you!
There are significant costs, but we are all committed to helping their rescuers in China see their dreams of a better life for these dogs. We know that we have many loving homes who would welcome these precious souls into their hearts and onto their couches where they belong.
All of us will be working on fundraising efforts and sharing this journey with all of you. It will take some time before they will be available for adoption, so please be patient. There are precious few hours in the day to devote to this mission and we are committing them to these pugs. With that in mind, please hold off on contacting us to apply until we have the chance to get them settled. If you would like to donate toward the vet care of these pugs, donate via Paypal or Square.

SEEKING HOME VISIT VOLUNTEERS
Wish you could adopt or foster, but cannot at this time??
You can still help out in various other ways. Right now we’re seeking volunteers to assist in performing home visits. We make every effort to ensure our rescues live their best life after coming into our organization. One of the most important steps is a home visit. Home visits help us to determine the best placement of our rescues by matching the perfect family with the perfect rescue.
Our volunteer base is just too small within our coverage areas to handle all of our applications and we have been forced to turn some folks away.
We’re reaching out in hopes to build our volunteer base so we never have to turn away an applicant due to our inability to perform the necessary home visit…
What do you need to do???
It’s simple, let us know you’re willing to help out by completing a volunteer application. We’ll setup a time of your convenience to meet with you and discuss the home visit process, and then you’re good to go and will be included in our volunteer listing..
When we receive an application, we send that application out to our list of volunteers. If the applicant resides in an area local for you to perform the home visit, let us know… Simple as that..
