A Sad Day for this Pug Lover

Included is a recent email I received from the rescue.  I feel helpless and hopeless, overwhelmingly sad and wanted to share...... PLEASE PLEASE consider doing one of the things listed at the bottom to help out the rescue, whether it's purchasing a board game or sweatshirt as a Christmas gift.. Please Please these pugs... If any of my friends or family are reading this and were planning on getting me a Christmas gift, please take that money and make a donation to the rescue as your gift to me.  
"In the past 2 years, KPR has "shut" the doors to incoming Pugs. Behind the scenes though, we still managed to find a place for the PUGS that came knocking at our Door.
We are NO LONGER able to do this. Our doors are SHUT. This is truly the most DIFFICULT decision this Board has ever is heartbreaking.
Lack of Foster Space and a severe shortage of Funds has forced us into this decision. We have a record number of Pugs in KPR...over 150

We have many who need medical care..Lazarus, found nearly dead,starved...pure skin and bones,  flea infested, anemic and Heartworm Positive he will have a long road to recovery and require medical treatment for months.  Honey's puppies who came to us from another Rescue who could not be transported as a result of her advanced pregnancy is a Puppy Mill discard. Her 3 Puppies are being hand raised and will require vaccines, neuter/spays and deworming before adopting out.  Then there is King George who came to us from Animal Control. He had Kennel Cough that turned into Pneumonia and he was hospitalized for days.   This is just a drop in the bucket of the expenses KPR incurs for the Pugs in Foster Care.

Please consider donating even 10.00 RIGHT NOW!   we need your have a chance to do something that counts...please step up and help. 
Additional ways to help KPR during this crisis:
Consider paying for your Foster Pug's Heartworm Preventative and Flea Control for the next 3 months. Believe it or not, this small
sacrifice adds up tremendously !
Please talk to the VET about writing Prescriptions for your Foster Pug and fill them at Walmart, Target, Kroger etc.
So many of the medications your Foster Pug requires can be dispensed much less expensively at a local retailer
for example  a bottle of antibiotics runs about 25-30.00 a bottle at some Vet offices. However at Target 6.00-9.00 and
that is a huge savings for KPR
Purchase a  PUGS ROCK Tshirt or Sweatshirt
Purchase a Pugopoly game                                     to purchase any of these items contact annie faircloth at
Purchase a 2011 KPR Fundraising Calendar
There are still Pugs out there that need KPR   it is so difficult to see the pictures we receive from the shelters and from owners needing our help. So many shelters are overflowing just like us...sadly though  they are faced with the decision of who lives and who dies. Please help us find a way to our doors again..   We want these Pugs to live and in so many cases, we ARE their LAST HOPE.
