Pug Hollow Sanctuary provides end of life care to 36 elderly and terminally ill dogs under 25 lbs. Some of these dogs have never had a caring home in their lives, some simply had the misfortune to outlive their owners, and some have been abandoned because of age or illness.
Pug Hollow provides a safe, loving home environment, as well as all medical care, medications, and special dietary needs that any of the dogs may need. We do not have a shelter, or kennel facility, but prefer to maintain the dogs as though they were personal pets in a 1930's farmhouse in which we reside.
As you can imagine it's a lot of hard work, a lot of emotional trauma (we love each of the dogs with all our hearts), and not an inexpensive endeavor.
The end of 2017 was one hit after another, with several major illnesses, and a much higher than usual number of dogs crossing the Rainbow Bridge. It's hard when we get hit that late in the year, because donations tend to decrease around the holidays. This means that we're going into 2018 with our medical fund at $0.
We desperately need your donations to re-fill our medical fund, and cover our outstanding vet expenses, which are around $460 right now. Without your donations, we cannot even consider taking in any additional dogs and while we will always provide medical care for current residents, limited funds limits our treatment options.
We are a fully transparent organization, and will happily provide an itemized accounting of where your donations go.
