As a "local" California based rescue, Tiny Paws Pug Rescue, focuses on dogs located in, and close to, California most of the time.
We have been asked, by a collective of rescues working in California, to re-home 30 dogs (pugs and frenchies) coming to us from China. As many of these precious dogs have been stuck in a shelter as a result of COVID restrictions - we felt compelled to accept the request.
We are expecting our dogs to arrive next week!
It is no small challenge. They will be arriving soon and then begin another long road trip to us in the Bay Area. It is taking a small army of coordinated effort to plan, transport, care for, and then find homes for these precious dogs.
As we have learned, it is also not an inexpensive effort to rescue these dogs. Even though we are rescuing them from a shelter in China, there are processing fees (for both the US and China), airline fees, medical charges, and ground transportation expenses that must be paid before we can even place them into their foster homes and clear them with our local vets.
These dogs will be more expensive for the folks choosing to adopt them. But we would like to be able to offset as much of the expenses associated as we can.
We are asking for your support at this time.
We understand that not all our supporters will choose to support our choice to accept these dogs - it was a big decision on our part and will not be something we do on a regular basis, and we are still continuing our regular rescue efforts in California.
For those of you who can see your way to support this herculean effort on our part - a big thank you!
It's a big project, and well outside of our comfort zone. But these faces, the stories, and the idea that COVID has impacted their lives as well were just too compelling for us to pass. We will need your help!
* If you have Alaska Airlines frequent flyer points that you are able to donate to us, this would be a super way to help us get the dogs from Washington state to California. Please email us asap!
* If you are able to "sponsor" a van rental from Seattle to Santa Cruz, it's about $750. (We need two!)
* If you want to "sponsor" one dog's fees, airline ticket, and travel, it's $1500.
*If you want to "sponsor" a specific dog's fees, medical with a plan to adopt (per application approval), it's $2300
*We will make a special effort to keep you up to date on the dog you are looking to adopt
* If you are able to "sponsor" a volunteer who will travel to Seattle to meet the dogs and then drive them down, we're estimating $250
Any financial donation would be greatly appreciated.
