Recap of 7/21/11 Reliant Dog Show - DAY 1

Thursday, 21 July 2011 18:35 by emilyw

Well I just got home from day 1 of the 2011 Reliant Dog Show, and what a day it was!  My foster Stimpy met a wonderful family that is interested in adopting him (yay)!  Ms. Raven was a little show stopper and stole many hearts at the show today, but how can you not love her when all she wants is to sit on  your lap and be held. Toby 2 (a 3 year old looking for his forever home w/ PugHearts) got to model at a photo shoot w/ the star of the new cartoon "Jimmy Paul: The Pug Tooth Fairy" (see facebook for more on Jimmy). So now we have another pug in the spot light and that never hurts with 102 currently looking for a home. 

PugHearts is located at booth 825 this year, right next to the search and rescue dogs and Frenchie rescue...I fell in love with the Frenchie named Angus...it's hard not to love a flat face lol. great neighbors and wonderful visitors make for a perfect day!

Thursdays are usually slow at the dog show and I can't wait to see what the next 3 days bring!  Please come out and support us and the other rescue groups at the Reliant Dog Show.  There are also a ton of great vendors there with everything you could ever want for your fuzzy friend.

keep'in PUG-tastic,

emily W.

Rescue Me Parade

Monday, 4 April 2011 21:03 by richardc

Last Saturday, PugHearts participated in the Rescue Me Parade at the Doggy Party on the Plaza at City Centre.

Our volunteers worked tirelessly to make an amazing float and we are very proud to announce that we won 2nd place! The prize? $2,600 in products such as $1,000 in pet food from Natural Pet Products and various gift certificates for veterinary specialists, boarding, and obedience training. 

Our float was made to raise puppy mill awareness and we had fun using our fosters as policemen and prisoners, with our puppy mill survivors following close behind. Here are some pictures!
