PUGMANIA: 16th Annual Pug Gala

Cathy Moore

In Memory of
Cathy Moore
This year's Pug Gala is dedicated to the memory of Seattle Pug Rescue's long-time chair, Cathy Moore, who passed away earlier this year. In her time as chair, she was instrumental in making the Gala what it is today. She was a very special person who loved pugs, personally caring for many neglected, sick and abused pugs in her home.

New Location
We regret that we are unable to continue at our previous Seattle location, but the Parks Department has sharply limited availability of the facility as it does not meet structural, electrical and mechanical code requirements. We hope you'll join us at the Pavilion at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds. It features more than 13,000 square feet of space, plenty of parking, and grassy areas.

Don't worry! If you're considering adding a pug to your family, SPR events are a great way to get exposure to the breed and talk to people about what life with pugs is like.
