Please Help Frankie!

March 18, 2014 @ 10:00 am posted by SusanL

Hi! My name is Frankie and I am 5 years old. A month ago, I was a normal, healthy pug. Then, within a matter of a few weeks, I completely lost the use of my back end. My owner loved me lots and gave me to Colorado Pug Rescue so that I could get the treatment and surgery I needed. That surgery cost $7,000. Anything that you could contribute would be so appreciated. I am a young, snuggly, happy guy and I really want the chance at a long life. You have no idea how much your donation means to me. Thank you!

Meet Addy!

This is Addy. She came to the Colorado Pug Rescue as an owner surrender. She’s only 7 years old female. She is diabetic, blind, and in need of a lot of medical care. Colorado Pug Rescue is in dire need of your donations. Every dollar helps. Thanks for all you do for the pugs!
