Pug Rescue of San Diego to celebrate 20th anniversary with ‘Emerald City’-themed Pug Party on May 7 in Del Mar
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Pug Rescue of San Diego hosts its annual May Pug Party on Saturday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Del Mar Fairground’s Infield Pavilion. This year’s theme is “The Emerald City — There’s No Place Like Home,” commemorating 20 years of giving pugs loving homes. The Pug Party is the organization’s biggest fundraising event of the year and the largest gathering of Pugs on the West Coast.
Pugs and their loving owners are encouraged to dress according to the Wizard of Oz theme and will enjoy activities such as a paw reading booth, faux hot air balloon wagon ride, a tail painting booth, and a yellow brick road game for children and adults alike. Pugs can enter various competitions including a wet t-shirt contest, cupcake chomp eating contest, costume themed contests, the most distinguished senior Pug contest, and a raffle with more than 20 gift baskets. Also, Pug Rescue’s own Pug Boutique will feature fun and fabulous pug-centric gifts and many dog-friendly vendors from throughout Southern California will be in attendance.
Tickets may be purchased the day of the event and are $10 for adults and $5 for children 10 and younger. All proceeds will go to Pug Rescue of San Diego in support of its mission to rescue abandoned or neglected Pugs, ensure they receive needed medical attention, and place them in permanent, loving homes. Several Pugs available for adoption will also be attending this celebration. Guests interested in adopting a Pug from the organization are encouraged to fill out an application in advance on Pug Rescue’s website: www.pugbutts.com.
