*The purpose of Pug Rescue South Africa is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Pugs in need, irrespective of their age, breed standard or health.
*They also offer sanctuary to Pugs who are not adopted and to the many aged Pugs in their care.
*They rescue in excess of 210 Pugs a year.
*Their rescues receive an extremely high standard of care at the Benoni sanctuary which affords them a home-from-home experience.
*The rehoming criteria is also extremely strict. Pug Rescue SA do not believe in “there is a home, here is a dog”, they re-home ” the right Pug to the right home ” and have an extremely low return rate.
Pug Rescue SA also founded the Thanda Inja Project in 2014. The Thanda Inja Project takes place in the Gabon and Chris Hani Informal Settlements in Daveyton, Benoni. The community Pug Rescue SA assists is impoverished and mostly unemployed. A welfare organisation doing welfare work.
Every second Tuesday Pug Rescue SA together with Dr Bernie Eales and other volunteer veterinarians offer free basic veterinary care to the dogs, cats and sometimes livestock in the community. Pug Rescue SA have a feeding scheme where over 450 registered dogs and 80 cats receive a bag of food every two weeks.
Drake Events has committed to give back in 2022 and will donate R20 per entry at every outride throughout the year. However, it’s not just about donating. Drake Events will also volunteer time to assist and spend time at the Pug Rescue SA sanctuary in Benoni, as well as arranging special family days out at the sanctuary.
Help us to help make a difference to a phenomenal organisation, doing amazing work every day!
