Nonprofits including pug rescues are being greatly impacted by the current international COVID-19 pandemic. Many organizations are being forced to postpone or cancel their upcoming fundraising events.

Making the decision to cancel important fundraising events to protect cherished supporters and the community at large is difficult enough, but then there is the added challenge of a rescue’s financial ability to continue supporting the pugs currently in their care and the ones that will need help in the future.

The coronavirus will not deter Pug Squad’s efforts to help pug rescues and pugs in need. Pug lover’s like you have sustained Pug Squad’s work with pug rescues for more than three years. We recognize this is an uncertain time, but we sincerely hope you will continue your support of our organization and pug rescues nationwide. Please consider making a contribution to one of the following pug rescues and help our community when they need it most.

Together we can weather this challenge – the pugs needing help are counting on us!

Giving Tuesday 2019

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a day created to encourage people to do good, to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity. Giving Tuesday has grown so much since 2012 that it is now considered the 3rd largest day for 501(c)3 nonprofits to receive donations. Giving Tuesday has grown to be much more than a day, it is now a season of celebrating and being thankful for the support received.

Pug Squad exists to help rescues relieve the pressure they face when they take in a pug in need. The bills can be insurmountable. By being able to donate to them through our mini grant program, we step in to help as we can. To do this, we need your help, we simply cannot do it without you.

While we will be running our own Giving Tuesday fundraiser, we hope you will create one of your own, so that those in your network can donate as well. You can start a fundraiser on Facebook, or you can start one through our donation page at Give Lively.
