Kentuckiana Pug Rescue is a
volunteer based, 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue organization
(permit #P13-001005) committed to helping all needy Pugs in
the states of Indiana, Kentucky and Wisconsin. We work to find both abandoned,
as well as surrendered Pugs, loving, forever homes in which
they can live out the rest of their lives. KPR does not have a
central facility where Pugs can be visited. Each
rescued Pug lives with a foster family until they can be
placed in an adoptive home.

||A special thank you to a generous young KPR supporter!!
This is a picture of Isabella and Razzy the Pug. Isabella recently celebrated her birthday and asked her friends to donate to Kentuckiana Pug Rescue
instead of buying her a birthday gift.
Isabella collected $122 for our Puggies!
KPR is very touched by this gesture, and we would like to give
Isabella a big THANK YOU!!
Make Smokey Smile Again!
Can you imagine what your Pug would be thinking or feeling if he/she were left on a
bitterly cold night in an overnight drop box at your local animal shelter? Can you just consider how frightened, how cold and confused
your Pug would be? Poor Smokey just endured that very scenario, but for him it was even worse as he is suffering from profound Demodex Mange.
He has leathery skin all on the front of his body and face. Demodex is NOT contagious and EASILY treatable. There is NO reason why this poor little
guy was allowed to become so affected. He is thankfully in the hands of KPR and has had his vaccines. He can't be neutered until the Demodex
is completely cleared up.
UPDATE ON SMOKEY
Smokey is tolerating his Demodex treatments very well.
There has been a little improvement in his skin, but he
still has a long way to go! He is working on his housebreaking
and being a little devil by chewing on anything he can get his
little paws on! Your support helps us give Smokey all the medical
care he so deserves. Thank you!!
We are asking you to help us Make Smokey Smile Again!! Would you consider giving
to help toward his long road to recovery? If you can, we would so appreciate it!
Did you know that Zoey means Life?
Recently Zoey came back to KPR
and we discovered a tennis ball sized mass on her side. With a Vet appointment
scheduled, she and her companion Pug were settling down in their Foster
Home when the mass burst, and Zoey was rushed into emergency surgery.
The mass was removed and a biopsy was sent to the Lab. As if poor
Zoey didn't have enough problems, she had 6 badly infected teeth removed
at the same time.
UPDATE ON ZOEY (5/3/13):
Sadly we have to report two additional Mast Cell Tumors have been found on Zoey.
We will be seeking follow up surgery to have them removed. Poor Zoey is really
a trouper, and we are hopeful we can get clean margins on these tumors. Please
continue to support Zoey by donating for her ongoing care. Thank you!!
Zoey means LIFE.
Your donation to help out with Zoey's
medical bills will help Zoey regain her good health and allow her to live
a happy healthy life.
Your donation IS tax deductible and can be made several ways:
2. Email email@example.com
with your credit/debit card number, expiration date, 3-digit security code, and zip code.
3. Mail a check made out to KPR to PO Box 22697, Louisville, KY 40252-0697.
