Dog Days of Summer

Green Mountain Pug Rescue is participating in the Dog Days of Summer Challenge. We need your help to win this year. Here is how it works, go to

Simply pick a square with a paw print, make a donation of $10 or more and upload your absolute most awesome photo of your dog. It could be funny, cute, sweet or flat-out beautiful. Memes are great too! A summery theme might help, but it's definitely not required. You can also leave a message.

If you don't have a dog or just don't want to play, you can still help by making a donation.

Here is how the rest of the challenge works:

The Dog Days of Summer Challenge ends at midnight on August 11th.

Afterwards,we will pick our favorite of all the dog photos on this GivingGrid and send it on to All the other participating animal organizations will do the same. The folks at GivingGrid will pick their 10 favorites and send them off to 1-800-Pet-Meds, who will then pick the grand prize winner, runner-up and third place. All 10 finalists will win stuff! We'll send you an email if you're our pick!

Here's the fun part. The animal organizations that submitted the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winning photos will win too! For us to qualify, we must have at least 25 squares taken and a minimum of $500 in total donations. Easy peasy right, but please help us make sure we get there! We want to win too!

Thank you for your support!

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us.

Featured Available Pug

Molly and Daisy are 7 year old black pug sisters. These friendly, lovable sisters are a bonded pair. Molly and Daisy were surrendered to the rescue with love due to financial constraints preventing the owner from keeping them. Daisy was diagnosed with Pyrometra that required surgery. She has had the surgery and is doing great! Molly is healthy. Both dogs need to be spayed. Both dogs are not housebroken.

Molly and Daisy are a sweet pair that love snuggling in bed with their humans. They are great with children, other dogs and cats. The ideal home would be with a family that is home often and can provide them with a lot of love and support.

Rescued Pug Stories

Vinnie became part of my family of 3 other small dogs in August of 2014. He's grown to love our long walks in many beautiful local places. In these pictures, he is with his look-alike statue at Bennington College (haha), he's the flower child, and he strikes a pose with his pal Habibi at a scenic spot. Vinnie is still a super cuddler, and will be testing in July to become a Certified Therapy Dog with Therapy Dogs of VT so he can spread the pug love. I love Vinnie, and he has been a perfect addition to my life. - Sue McIntosh
