Peanut Butter!


Peanut Butter's surgery was a success, and she is doing very well. Updates and photos have been posted in the CO Pug Rescue Facebook social group.

Also, thanks to the many people who donated for Peanut Butter's surgery, we have now paid the medical bill! Thank you all so much for saving her life.
