Across the country, upscale retailer Anthropologie has partnered with animal welfare organizations by holding pet adoption events and supply drives in many of its stores — including the store at St. Johns Town Center on September 24th.
What better setting to attract sympathetic dog-lovers that the stores where these customers shop. Mid-Atlantic Pug Rescue, (MAPR) Inc.is an all-volunteer group, determined that the welfare of these beautiful animals comes first.
MAPR’s requirements for membership are simple: a desire to help homeless pugs, promote education about the breed, and promote animal population control.
They strongly encourage participation in other groups, rescues, and shelters, as the best way to strengthen the rescue effort. These precious abandoned or surrendered pugs need veterinary care, a nurturing environment, and they need to be placed in a loving home.
Bloom Realty supports their valuable and humane effort. And we share in the belief of their motto: "Let no pug go unloved."
