Thank you to Buster & Lilly's Doggie Daycare & Boarding for sponsoring Olive's monthly medications!

We're saddened to share that our long-term Furever Foster has crossed the rainbow bridge. She was a very special girl and we're forever thankful for everyone who contributed to her care as she fought her cancer. Her foster parents have shared this with us: 
We were so blessed and lucky to be able to share the last few years of Olive's life with her. She was diagnosed with advanced stage nasal carcinoma and was given a prognosis of approximately 3 months. I think she must have heard 3 years! She fought that cancer like the spitfire she was. Full of spunk, spirit and love. She was both a quiet little lovebug and a sassy, steady presence. She charmed everyone she met with her sweet face and buddha like body. Olive had a love for all things edible, fluffy blankets, massages, and simply hanging out with the family. She will be forever in our hearts. Thank you everyone for loving her!


Twelve year young Olive came into PPR in 2015 and was diagnosed with an aggressive and advance stage nasal carcinoma. We felt that it was in her best interest to be entered into our Furever Foster program in order to stay in the loving care of her foster family as she undergoes chemo. Not only do these pugs need us physically, but sometimes it’s in their best interest to stay in our care for their emotional well-being.

An important part of rescue that is often forgotten is taking care of these sweet seniors when they are not adoptable, but still have a lot of life to give. If you did not know about our Furever foster program, please take the time to go and look at the other dogs that are living out their remaining days with us. Our foster homes provide the love, and we take care of the medical needs and supplies. This program can only exist if we have donations to cover the costs. Did you know we have a sponsorship program where as little as $10 a month can help us to take care of their medical needs?    While not everyone can foster one of these special pugs, anyone can be a part of their lives by choosing to give a small monthly donation to their care. Please go here to look at our furever fosters and sign up for a sponsorship today!
