BBS Rescue Spotlight: Pug Rescue of Sacramento
We at Best Bully Sticks are partial to pugs, after all, pugs got us started in the bully stick business! (Thanks, Sushi & Espy!) We’re very excited today to share the great story and dedication of Pug Rescue of Sacramento and we had the pleasure of speaking with Janet Grover, President of PROS. They won a BBS Giveaway last month and we’re so excited to feature them on the blog! Read more about PROS below!
When & Why did you start?
A breeder in the Sacramento area saw the need for a pug rescue in the early 1990's and started the rescue. In 1996 we were incorporated as a California Public Benefit Corp. In May of 2003 we became a federal non-profit.
What's different about your rescue?
We are breed specific and only rescue pugs and pug mixes. We are an all-volunteer group with most of our volunteers who have full time jobs, families and pugs of their own and volunteer with us.
What's the most rewarding thing about working at your rescue?
The most rewarding thing is finding great forever homes for the pugs that we take in. We pull from shelters and also take owner surrenders due to various circumstances i.e. foreclosures and can't find a rental that will take dogs, divorces and the owners are moving into apartments that don't allow animals or from a person who passes away and the relatives don't want the pug.
