Current Nail Clipping Charity
Pug Rescue of New England (PRoNE) is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has been in operation since the early 1980s. It was founded by two pug breeders who saw the need to educate the public about the importance of ethical breeding and most importantly, they saw the need for a rescue specific to the complex health issues of the breed.
Since its founding, over 4,000 pugs have been rescued. They frequently take in dogs with extensive medical and behavior issues. PRoNE is proud of their hospice program which provides a loving home and financial support to pugs that are not wanted because they are sick, elderly or aggressive. The dogs are given a chance to experience quality time in a home where they are wanted.
PRoNE is an all-volunteer rescue supported by donations, fundraising events and adoption fees. With fees covering just 20% of their veterinary costs on average, the money raised through this grant will significantly help pugs in their care.
