Rescue me!
December 23, 2008

As some of you may know, I have been involved with rescuing pugs and volunteering for the last 7 years.

It is because of my sweet Sausage that I have fallen in love with the pug dog breed and become so committed to helping them. I have come to understand that it is through my rescue work that his legacy will live on.

With that said, I am pleased to announce that I have recently joined a new Pug Rescue organization: Curly Tail Pug Rescue!

curlytail.jpgCurly Tail's Mission is to rescue healthy, abused, abandoned, homeless, unwanted, sick or injured Pugs. We rehabilitate them and place them into loving, permanent adoptive homes from NYC to Massachusetts, parts of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Stop by to visit us online, take a look around, view some slideshows of the curly tail pugs!

I have to say I am totally psyched to be a part of this dynamic, committed, enthusiastic, dedicated team of pug lovers. It is obviously a cause very close to my heart.

In addition to being able to help pugs in need, I have been able to utilize my online marketing and design skills to help build our web presence. A very rewarding experience for me!!

As part of our PR push, I have created a brand new Curly Tail Blog and will be a regular writer / contributor. Here we will keep the public informed about our organization's efforts and undertakings. Please bookmark us and check back often for updates!

We are just getting started and trying to get the word out. So -- if any of you website owners, pug bloggers, or sponsors out there would like to be added to our Curly friends section, please let me know. We only ask that you add a link back to our site in exchange.

Last but not least - as you know we are currently living in very difficult and trying economic times. These challenges are impacting virtually every industry, dog breeders included.

One breeder is closing up shop and needing multiple pug rescues to help and take in 53+ pugs in the next week! We are currently in the midst of this full blown rescue operation transporting, fostering, and vetting a number of pugs. The pugs that we are taking are a mix of 3 males & 5 females whose ages range from 2-7 years old. Please check back for updated pictures and bios of all rescued pugs around the holidays.

Curly Tail is incorporated and in the process of obtaining 501(c)3 status

Please consider making a donation to support these efforts and help save the life of a pug.

Thank you and Happy Holidays,

~Lori

Oh Lori, that it wonderful! Wow. Pugsley and Sledgehammer have touched our lives in many of the same ways. HE is my reason for being nuts over the pug breed, and got me into rescue. I will gladly make a Christmas donation to this rescue in honor of our two pugs, Pusgley and Sledgehammer, who have touched the lives of so many. I look forward to reading the Curly Tail Blog as well!!!!

Awesome. I will help however I can. As you know, we are the parents of a rescue pug - Grimmy - and if anyone asks about getting a pug I always point them to a rescue.

Good for you, Lori. I'll be reading that blog regularly.

How wonderful that you are a part of that organization! I saw the blog this past week when I was on the site. I am very involved with Green Mountain Pug Rescue and very excited about Curly Tails! Our group WNYPP does events and fundraising for Pug Rescue and look forward to getting together with Curly Tails and raising money for them too! Very cool, very cool indeed!
