Last bid will be accepted at 6:59pm on 9/9. Go to Maple's Baby Shower Auction Facebook Page to join the fun and receive updates!

2023 Combined Pug Social with Pug Rescue of New England

We are thrilled to announce a truly groundbreaking event that is bound to make a pawsitive impact in the world of pug rescue, at least in our corner of the world. As many of you Vermonters are already painfully aware, the July flooding wreaked havoc in many areas. These unforeseen challenges have made it impossible for us to proceed with our planned event location in Ludlow, VT. This choice was made after careful consideration of the current state of the Camp Plymouth grounds and our desire to proceed in a manner that prioritizes the health and safety of our guests, volunteers, and alumni.

But with every cloud comes a silver lining. In the true rescue spirit of bridging borders - starting at home, our dear friends at Pug Rescue of New England have graciously opened their hearts and event space for a FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND PARTNER PUG RESCUE EVENT! So, pug-up and get ready for a double down pug-tastic day of silly contests, unique pug merchandise and fantastic food, all for an amazing cause. Save the date, mark it on your calendar, and get ready for an unforgettable day!

When: Same date 9/30/23 (as if it was meant to be)
Where: Middlesex County 4H Fairgrounds Westford, MA
Time: Gates open at 9:30AM

We understand that this change of venue means that some of you cannot partake in this year’s festivities. We fully understand and extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who have supported us throughout the years as well as in preparing for this event. To all our volunteers, alumni, and individuals who were looking forward to attending, thank you. We are truly grateful for your ongoing support. Please cancel any hotel reservations you made in preparation for your stay, and hopefully you will rebook to attend at this new location. There are plenty of pet friendly hotels in the area to choose from.

With puggy love and gratitude from all your friends at Green Mountain Pug Rescue and Pug Rescue of New England, we can’t wait to see you!

To pre-order your pug social apparel, we have started a Bonfire campaign. You can also purchase your shirts on the day of the event but we will only have unisex t-shirts available.


Wish you could adopt, but cannot at this time??

You can still help out in various other ways. Right now we’re seeking volunteers to assist in performing home visits and fostering dogs in our care until they are ready to go to their forever homes. We make every effort to ensure our rescues live their best life after coming into our organization. One of the most important steps is a home visit. Home visits help us to determine the best placement of our rescues by matching the perfect family with the perfect rescue.

Our volunteer base is just too small within our coverage areas to handle all of our applications and we have been forced to turn some folks away. We’re reaching out in hopes to build our volunteer base so we never have to turn away an applicant due to our inability to perform the necessary home visit…

Since we don't have a shelter, we need loving foster homes that can take in the dogs we save, bring them to their vet appointments and just give them the love they deserve until they can be placed with their forever family. Foster families are not responsible for any vet bills and can be reimbursed for dog food, treats and other necessary supplies for the dog.

What do you need to do???

It’s simple, let us know you’re willing to help out with home visits or other volunteer needs by completing a
Volunteer Application or complete a Foster Application if you want to open your home to a foster dog.

The true display of one's character is how they treat those who cannot speak or do for themselves. You're all heroes in our book and we thank you all for your continued support!! We can’t do this without you!

Pet-Friendly Housing

According to a study conducted by the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), the number one reason for pet relinquishment is moving.

Check out the pet-friendly apartments in Burlington, Montpelier, Manchester, Concord, and Portland.
