Tuesday, 19 June 2012 08:12 by emilyw

PugHearts is raising some funds to support the overwhelming number of pugs we have coming in right now with a good old fashion garage sale on Saturday 6/30/12 at the Woodedge subdivision club house off Jones Road (10403 Greencreek Houston 77070)

The garage sale will run 7am to 1pm and is INSIDE!!!!!   We need human volunteers to come and help and also people to come and shop or donate items.  (Please note:  this is a people only event to raise money we cannot have any of our dogs there). 

Any items that are not sold the day of the garage sale will be donated to another charity.

Kara Humphrey is graciously arranging everything for this fundraiser (thank you Kara!) so please contact her via Facebook with any questions.


Here are the directions:

Coming from 290 exit Jones, go right on Jones, cross over 1960, turn right on Greencreek ( u can only turn right) ( you will see the Crooked Ferrett bar on left). U will go thru 2 stop signs, clubhouse is on right after 2nd stop sign.  If u get to Cypress North Houston road at Jones u have gone too far.
