Happy Gotcha Day Zilly!

How Zilly (the “un-pug”) came to CPR…

Zilly was surrendered to the local shelter just as Hurricane Irma was nearing Florida. CPR received notification that a puggle (pug/beagle mix) had been surrendered and we were asked if we would be interested in taking her as there were over 40 surrenders to that shelter that day alone! We were told that she was young, healthy, spayed and friendly so of course we said Yes! A volunteer picked up Zilly from the shelter and took her home. We quickly learned that Zilly was exactly what they said she was – except that she wasn’t a pug or pug mix at all! She quickly won everyone’s hearts and there was no way that we would be taking her back to the shelter! Zilly had a great time with her foster family but she was ready for her own home. She met a great family at the Countdown 2 Zero Adoption event at the Palm Beach Convention center and the rest, as they say, is history! Here Zilly is with her new forever family! We guess some things are just meant to be! …

Congratulations Zilly!!!! We hope you have a long, healthy, happy life! Xoxo

Foster Families Needed!

Have you considered fostering?

Opening your home to care for pugs that are on their way to their forever home is one of the most important aspects in rescue. CPR is always looking for volunteers that are willing to foster pugs, but now, more than ever, CPR is in need of foster families. As a foster parent, all we ask of you is a kind hand, a little patience and a loving home while we search for a forever home for your rescued foster pug.

Our foster parents pay for nothing, (unless they want to). We provide the: crate if needed, food, Heart Guard & Frontline, and any vet visits that may be required. No foster parent in our organization is ever forced to take a pug; we try to match the foster pugs to households that suit them and where they will thrive.

If you can open your heart and home to foster one of our pugs in need, please fill out our Volunteer Application, including the specific Foster questions.  A Foster/Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch with you as soon as possible.  Thank you! xoxo
