GMPR @ Curtis Lumber's Pet-a-Palooza
GMPR will be attending this year's Curtis Lumber's 10th annual pet adoption day Saturday, June 15, 2019. Board members Jessica and Stefanie will be running our booth along with GMPR volunteers. Stop by and say hi!
Information on the event:
Hundreds of animals from over 80 shelters and rescue groups will be available for adoption including cats, dogs, rabbits, birds and more. There will also be pet service providers in attendance such as local veterinarians, groomers, pet sitters and trainers offering valuable discounts off their services.
Enjoy a LOW-COST Micro-Chipping Clinic! $20 per current pet. $15 per pet if adopted at PetAPalooza! Includes FREE lifetime registration.
Other events include pet related vendors, 50/50 raffles, food and much more. (select stores) You may also bring your own pet to PetAPalooza. Due to large crowds, Curtis Lumber asks that your pet be leashed at all times with a regular leash. No retractable leashes please.
Last year’s event resulted in over 300 animals finding new forever homes!
Curtis Lumber’s President and Owner Jay Curtis and wife Kendra, along with the Curtis family of 600 plus employees are very excited to host this annual event.

SEEKING HOME VISIT VOLUNTEERS
Wish you could adopt or foster, 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. 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…
What do you need to do???
It’s simple, let us know you’re willing to help out by completing a volunteer application. We’ll setup a time of your convenience to meet with you and discuss the home visit process, and then you’re good to go and will be included in our volunteer listing..
When we receive an application, we send that application out to our list of volunteers. If the applicant resides in an area local for you to perform the home visit, let us know… Simple as that..
You love pugs and you’re reading this post, so you’re already a supporter of GMPR.
The true display of one's character is how they treat those who cannot speak or do for themselves. You're all heroes in my book and we thank you all for your continued support!! We can’t do this without you!
URGENT NEED FOR FOSTER HOMES
GMPR is in urgent need for foster homes. We cover all vet care costs and other bills accumulated to care for our foster dogs. If you are able to open your home to a pug until they are ready for adoption, please go to our FOSTER APPLICATION to start the process. Thank you for your support!
