Rootin’ Tootin’ Euney Tune’s family wanted to raise funds for Pug Rescue of San Diego County to show our appreciation for their rescue efforts.

Eunice was living on the streets of San Diego within the transient community. She was left on a bike path and a Good Samaritan picked her up and took her to the shelter. We saw Suzi post about her being at the shelter and held out hope that she would be able to be taken into the rescue. Luckily the shelter knew about her from previous experiences with her being brought to the shelter and when no one came to claim her PRSDC stepped in.

Animal rescues around the nation are being inundated with pugs in need. PRSDC has gotten so many dogs from the overflowing animal shelters and also help out owners that can no longer care for their pets. A lot of times these dogs may need minor vetting, but sometimes they have major medical needs. While the need for dog rescue is up, unfortunately the donations are down. We hope that you consider purchasing a Eunice shirt to benefit the rescue that saved Eunice.
