Pug Party at the Del Mar Fairgrounds

San Diego Pug Rescue held its 26th annual Pug Party at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 6. The theme was “APUGalypse” and some pugs came in costume as zombies or characters from “The Walking Dead”. Over 300 pugs and pug lovers enjoyed contests, a raffle, pug boutique and photo booth. Pugs could chow down at the Pug Cafe or get their nails trimmed and tails painted. The annual event raises funds for the rescue group, which specializes in second chances for loveable pugs, providing medical care for mild to severe cases, fostering and finding forever homes for pugs in need.
