Pug Rescue South Africa {Guest Post}

I do like all things dogs —- and I really like people who work so hard to rehome and rehabilitate dogs ….



The purpose of Pug Rescue South Africa is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Pugs in need, irrespective of their age or breed standard.  We also offer a sanctuary to Pugs and other small breed dogs who are not adopted.

In the past three years we have rescued in excess of 500 Pugs, four  Maltese dogs, a German Shepherd, a Miniature Schnauzer, a Boston Terrier Cross, a few Spaniels, a St Bernard, two Pitbull puppies, and some cross breeds, around South Africa.

All funds received by Pug Rescue SA are used for the care of the Pugs in rescue and being fostered around South Africa, with the majority of the funds being used for veterinary care.  No funding is used for administration purposes and the only salaries we pay are for four kennel hands and one cleaner.  All other functions are conducted by volunteers.

In order for us to keep doing this, we host a number of Fundraising events throughout the year across South Africa.

Our next event will take place in Cape Town on the 6th April at John Graham Primary School (Milford Road Plumstead) themed Pugs Bunny’s Easter Fair from 11am till 4pm.

Guaranteed to be loads of fun with fantastic merchandise for sale from our Pugtique and Pugs Pantry, delicious food and cool drinks on sale, sweet goodies and games for the 2 legged kiddies and of course activities for the 4 legged kiddies as well.

We will also run a competition for the best dressed Pug Bunny and owner, so dress up your beloved Puglets and bring a heart full of love and smiles and come support our wonderful cause.

R20 for adults and R10 for children will get you in. Any pet food donation will be welcome 🙂
