You do not have to be owned by a pug to attend SPR events. If you're thinking about adding a pug to your family, coming to SPR events is a great way to get to know the breed. You can talk to pug people and learn about what life with pugs is like.
For the second year we are doing an online auction with Raising Funds for Rescues. We'll have over 300 items up for bid - pug related and other fun items. Raising Funds for Rescues is a Facebook page that specializes in online auctions for pug rescue groups across the nation.Right now we are looking for donations!
Do you have any new or gently used items you no longer want?
You can also purchase items like pug theme stuff (purses, decor, clothing), dog clothing, cookbooks, and jewelery, which do well in auctions. Consider Amazon or Etsy, which have a wide selection of pug items. Or visit the "Pug Related Products" section on our Friends page and shop small businesses.
It doesn't need to be pug related or even animal related - it can be anything that can be shipped! Gift certificates for goods and services are also a wonderful donatoin, particularly those that can be used ahywhere in the US (restaurants, stores).
If you are creative, "baskets" are very popular and typically include an assortment of themed items such as dog treat samplers, spa and beauty baskets, or a dog toy bag. Just remember it has to be able to be shipped, so don't go too big!
Also consider if there are any local businesses you have contact with that would donate?
Let us know if you have something to donate by August 31, and we can make arrangemetns. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
