August 2014

This month has been a roller coaster – much more than usual. 

This month we welcomed Ayden, Althea, Peter, Harley and Penny to the PPSNR family.  We also celebrate Bianca, the Pekingese, Corrina and Ayden finding forever homes.

On August 14th, Peter was surrendered to Philly Pug & Short Nose Rescue.  Right away we knew this boy was in bad shape.  He was taken to the vet and was diagnosed with Diabetes.  Based upon the preliminary tests, it was decided that Peter be taken to our ER veterinary clinic for more extensive testing and treatment.  Peter spent three days in the hospital before being released.  He came home in good spirits and playful.  In the morning he did not want to eat and found a crate in which to lay down for a nap.  His Diabetes and related organ damage were just too much for him.  Sadly on August 17th we said good bye; Peter crossed the bridge while napping.

You can make a donation in Peter’s memory at: http:www.rescuepug.comabout-us/donations/

On a much happier note, Philly Pug & Short Nose Rescue received approval of our application to be recognized as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity.  This means that all past and future donations to PPSNR are eligible as a deduction from federal and state (where permitted) income taxes.  (Please see your tax adviser for guidance.)
