Over 300 pugs and their owners gathered in Killington, for Green
Mountain Pug Rescue's 10th Annual Pug Social at the Sherburne
Memorial Library on Saturday, Sept. 22.
The Green Mountain Pug Rescue (GMPR) has rescued and
successfully placed almost 1,000 pugs in new homes, including nine
pugs that were adopted on the day of the event.
Pug lovers from as far away as Colorado enjoyed the costume
contest, alumni pug parade, pug races and more. Event
organizer Phil Douglas stated, "This year's pug social was the best
yet. The Town of Killington and the Sherburne Memorial
Library went above and beyond to assure the success of this year's
event, and we look forward to returning to Killington for the 11th
Annual Pug Social."
While attending Dog Days in 2011, an event produced by the Town
of Killington's Economic Develop and Tourism Office, the organizers
recognized the town as a the perfect dog-friendly to host their ten
year anniversary celebration. After a first successful year
hosting the event, GMPR plans to return for years to come.
Green Mountain Pug Rescue (GMPR) is a non-profit
rescue group of volunteers within Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine,
