Be sure to check out our store to purchase pug related items and gifts. All proceeds will help us save the pugs and cover the medical costs.
Please keep Zeus and Pug Rescue of Florida in your thoughts and prayers. Our vets estimate his medical needs at roughly $4,000 which is better than the shelter estimated but still our mountain to climb and we do it gladly. We do ask for any help you can give us any way you can give it. We know not everyone can donate, and if you are someone who can, please donate today to help Zeus.
We dog lovers do make a difference…one dog at a time.
