New Year, new month, new group – Beading Divas to the Rescue is excited to be fundraising for Arizona Puggle Rescue.
Arizona Puggle Rescue is a non-profit, shelterless, all volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue, evaluation and rehoming of Puggles. We are 501(c)3 designated. When we began the rescue on January 15, 2014 we set out to service the entire state but now we are expanding to CA, CO, NM, NV, TX and OK because we are the only Puggle Rescue and sadly the need for a dedicated puggle rescue is great.
Meet Gracie Mae. She is a pit/boxer mix though you can hardly tell by looking at her. She was starved to the edge of death on purpose. Her previous owners were doing this to weaken her to use her for bait in a dog fighting ring. She is 30 pounds where she should weigh at least 50 – 65. Her red cell blood count dropped so drastically that she had to give her three blood transfusions and every second has been spent with vets, on the phone, trying to get some fundraisers going. It’s so horrible. She is absolutely the sweetest baby girl ever! So at this time she is not a success story but the Arizona Puggle Rescue is hopeful before the end of January she will be.
So through fate, Beading Divas to the Rescue fundraiser is timed just right to help Gracie Mae get the veterinary services she needs.
