Pugs dress to impress at annual rescue party

Around 500 pugs padded into the Del Mar Fairgrounds infield on May 2 for Pug Rescue of San Diego’s annual Pug Party. This year’s theme was “Rockin’ Through the Ages” and pugs arrived wearing Elvis-reminiscent sequined jumpsuits, AC/DC T-shirts and poodle skirts without the poodle–a crafty owner sewed on a pug instead.

The event offered vet screenings with Dr. Brian Golden, nail clipping (a pug’s worst nightmare), a boutique selling everything from Pug Pinot wine to pug bellybutton rings and psychedelic tail painting. A pug cafe had pugs gobbling dog-friendly meatballs, chicken and carrots and contests included a cupcake chomp and the most distinguished senior pug, an honor that went to 15-year-old Jade.

Pug Rescue has helped find 50 pugs homes this year and has provided nearly $7,000 for vet services and surgeries in just the last few months. Help is always needed and donations can be made at pugbutts.com.
