In Memory of…


mae1Our thoughts go out to one of our wonderful CPR volunteers, Liz.  Penny, Liz’s 14 year old girl, recently crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  Liz does so much for CPR and always has a smile and warm heart for our pugs-in-needs. Rest In Peace pretty Penny, you will be missed.



CPR recently learned of the passing of Mabel.  A sweet senior lady who was pulled from Lee County Domestic Animal Services in January 2014.  She was in tough shape when we got her but her loving foster home, followed by her forever home, gave her love and care in her last months. Rest In Peace, Miss Mabel.

Molly’s Story

It is with a heavy heart that we give this update today. Molly, the precious pug mix from Broward, one of the many victims of animal cruelty and neglect from a hoarding case, was just too weak to survive her illness and has given up her fight and gone to the Rainbow Bridge.

Molly’s story…

Carly and Molly

Molly (shown here with Carl) delivered three beautiful puppies only two days after being pulled from the shelter. She gave birth in the isolation ward of an animal hospital where she was herself hospitalized for being so weak and sick. One of her three pups, the one we named “Benny”, passed only days before she did.


At the time of Molly’s passing, two pups were orphaned. Sadly, one of those pups, the one we named Lucy, became very weak and lethargic and has also passed. There remains one pup, the one we have named “Abby” that is receiving continuous care and around the clock feedings. We are hopeful that Abby might survive as the last member of this little family.


Please join us today in remembering Molly and her little angels Benny and Lucy. We ask for all the good thoughts, prayers and healing energy that you can send to little Abby.

Donations made for this little family will go toward the thousands of dollars that CPR has spent to care for Molly, Carl (the male that she came in with who was also hospitalized due to extreme illness) and the puppies since July 30th.

Use the Donate button on our homepage and mention “Molly” in the special instructions.

Thank you friends and family of CPR. It is only with the generosity and kind hearts of our supporters that we are able to continue our work to help those that need us most.


In Loving Memory

Geri Lola 2Lola, a CPR Alum, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.  Her sister and fellow CPR alum, Noni will miss her and will be receiving all the love in the world from her mom & dad.  Like so many pugs who make their way to CPR, Lola was older and needed some tender loving care.  She received that and so much more from Geri & Lew.

From Lola’s mom: She was the most loving, special little girl, perfect for us.  The 3 & 1/2 years we had her just was not enough.

Pug hugs to your family from all of us at CPR.
