Order from any i Fratelli Pizza location or dine at our Ristorante & Wine Bar in Irving on Monday, February 4 and mention “DFW Pug Rescue.” When you do, they will receive 15% of your purchase amount as a DoughNation to continue their work finding homes for lovable pugs.
DFW Pug Rescue Club, Inc., (DFWPRC) was incorporated in July 1997 as a non-stock, non-profit corporation for the rescue, care, and placement of unwanted, mistreated, or homeless pugs in Texas.
DFWPRC is the largest pug rescue organization in the United States and has rescued and placed over 5,500 huggable, squeezable, absolutely adorable pugs — we rescue approximately 10 pugs a week.
We rescue ALL pugs regardless of age or medical condition. Since we rescue ALL pugs, our veterinary care is our biggest on-going expense and we average approximately $250,000 a year in veterinary expenses. This amount is after our veterinary care clinics provide deep discounts. 100% of all funds donated to DFW Pug Rescue are used to pay for Veterinary care.
All pugs rescued by DFWPRC are taken immediately to the vet where they are examined, tested (and treated) for heartworm, vaccinated, sterilized, and rabies shots administered before being placed in a foster or permanent home.
70% of the rescue pugs are heartworm positive and all are treated at DFWPRC’s expense
DFWPRC is an all-volunteer non-profit organization and do not have a staging area to hold our rescue pugs so we depend on the generosity of our volunteers to provide foster homes until permanent homes can be located.
DFWPRC has placed pugs in 28 states, British Columbia, Canada, Hawaii, Germany, and Japan.
