My name is Peggy, and I am the website manager and a volunteer / foster parent for Hug A Pug AZ Rescue & Adoption Group. Please check out our KGUN9 News story here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjAdGPlDmVI we are famous! Milo is a star! We're a non profit animal rescue covering Tucson and Southern Arizona. We're run and funded solely by our founder and our awesome volunteers, but we have regular jobs and bills to pay, and we are having a tough time making ends meet in our efforts to save our rescue dogs. We partner with PACC (Pima County Animal Control Center) and always get the call when a homeless or abandoned pug or pug mix is taken into animal control so we can pick them up and get them into rescue. We are struggling to get the veterinary attention needed for our 30+ rescue pugs and we get more pugs every week, usually sick, neglected, abused, or with behavioral problems. Before arriving at PACC (whose awesome staff licenses the pugs and makes sure their immediate medical needs are taken care of) their previous owners likely left them without vet care, grooming, shots, or county dog licenses for a long time. Lots of them are "Senior" pugs that because of their advanced age or medical issues no one wants to deal with. Many of our pugs are not posted for adoption on our website currently because they are waiting for veterinary care before they're suitable to place in a safe and permanent loving forever home. Our goal is to save these innocent animals and rehabilitate / re-home them if possible; if not, we want to give them a warm bed and lots of love while they live out the rest of their lives. Please help if you have the means, and share this event with anyone you think may be interested in animal welfare. We're shooting for a meet and greet fundraising event at Reid Park Dog Park (Miko's) in October to thank our supporters! If you want to come and meet some of our pugs, bring your dogs along and we'll have lots of fun! We'll be posting a date at the end of September. Until then... Pug Hugs and Sloppy Kisses to you!
Q. What are the directions to Miko's Corner Dog Park where the event will be held?
A. Directions: ***Note that there are TWO entrances to the park from Country Club— Concert Place and Picnic Place. Proceed to the northernmost entrance - "Concert Place".
The Concert Place entrance is on S. Country Club Road between 22nd Street and Broadway Blvd. (north of 22nd Street and south of Broadway Blvd.) It is directly opposite E. Eastland street. The street address (if it had one) would be approximately 830 S. Country Club Road.
Look on the east side of Country Club Road and you'll see a white and blue “Gene C. Reid Park”
sign with a green support bracket. This sign doesn’t give the street name,
but the green street sign above the STOP sign says “Concert Place” so you'll know you're at the
Once inside the Concert Place entrance, make your first right turn and you will be in Miko's Corner parking lot. You will see the "small dog" gated section of the park on the right hand side of the lot. Park in the parking lot and join our rescue volunteers along with our supporters and the rescue pugs for slobbery kisses, pug hugs and snorts, laughter and conversation, and fun that only a pug lover can appreciate!
