we are overwhelmed at the outpour of support so far. 

rescue is a tough business. it is easy to get beaten down by the horrible intake stories, the suffering of sweet innocent animals...the cruelty humans can display.

i, for one, used to find it hard to keep my faith in humanity. HOWEVER, the positive of rescue is not just the amazing rehab cases or the mind blowing, unconditional love of these rescued dogs. 

what never ceases to amaze me are the people that bring us back into the light. the volunteers who tirelessly give of their time & effort. all of YOU supporters that have faith in the work that we do... who keep showing up to help us move forward. 

it is YOUR positivity that sends us the strength to look in the face of tragedy & pain and prevail no matter what.

i was feeling tired & wondering how long i could keep this up as of late. but as the donations started rolling in today, it brought tears of gratitude & joy. it reminds me that not only do i not want to leave the dogs who need us but i don't want to leave the people who love us.

with much love & gratitude, i thank all of you who can give in whatever way that you can. be it financially, supplies, precious time... and most of all your love, faith & prayers. 

thank you thank you thank you,
dréa and the incredible gang at curly tail

Campaign Info
07/12/2014

Curly Tail has over $6500 in medical bills at our vets. Many of our regular medical cases do not get big fundraisers. 

The pugs featured here are "regular" cases but quite costly and our adoption fees never come close to covering costs.

So we created this so you can see just a few of the "regular ones" & help us catch up. That way we can open up intake again and resume rescue as usual.

• Olga's care: $2400
wkly steroid injections, multiple x-rays, antiobiotics, bloodwork

• Max: $1700
several x-rays, multiple rounds of antibiotics, bloodwork, vax

• Jenny: $1100
x-rays, bloodwork, dental surgery, antiobiotics, spay surgery

• Cooper: $800
x-rays, bloodwork, antiobiotics, vax

• Sunny: $750
multiple x-rays, dental surgery, multiple rounds of antibiotics, bloodwork, vax

Please help us pay off our medical bills,
 so we can reopen intake!

Many of you would remember our most recent case, Isobel.  She was in a terrible state when Curly Tail took her in.  After months of dedicated foster care and mostly holistic treatment, she is finally healed enough to go home.  Isobel met her forever family.  This is a very happy Curly Tail ending!  

Thank you to all those who showed such support for this case.  We are already well on our way with several others.  Stay Tuned!

Happy Valentines Day from the Gang at Curly Tail Pug Rescue

June 22, 2008 - Feb 12, 2013


After losing Sophia, it turns out that this year has been one of an exploration on love.

Love in it's purest sense is beautiful and magical and makes life worth living.  It's darker side, with pain and hurt and fear, is what we bring to the table.  By practicing acceptance and letting go, I am able to feel love truly at it's deepest, purest level.  

I can accept love and let go of hurt and fear.  I can accept the loss of Sophia.  I can accept the pain and grieving that comes w that loss.  But I do not have to bring excess hurt, suffering and fear into the mix.  I can grieve freely and be filled w love.

By truly letting go, even if only for moments at a time, I can be filled w love in it's purest sense and Sophia shines brightly in my heart.  I can deeply smile,
even through tears, w love for her that will always exist.  A love that will radiate into the lives of those around me & her bold, little spirit who lives on forever within me.

I give the gift of love freely today, and try to every day, by practicing acceptance & letting go.  And in turn I can live in love and not fear, and Sophia lives on.

Happy Valentines Day from the Gang at Curly Tail Pug Rescue






The Walking Pug • Halloween 2013




Curly pug "Pixel" dressed up as Michonne from the Walking Dead.  She wins our vote for best pug costume!





june 22, 2008 • feb 12, 2013

Sophia was truly a gift who belonged to us all. We know that her strong spirit is still with us, and that her legacy will live on.

As we struggle to come to terms with this great loss, we hope you will take a moment to remember Sophia for exactly what she was ...

Love. Pure Love.

For more of Sophia, please visit her Remembrance Page


We will continue our rescue philosophy... based on Sophia's bright, fiery little life & her ever strong will to live: 
  • Save those that would have been forgotten. 
  • Provide care others say is not possible. 
  • Find the reason when others say it is not worth it.

Donations in Sophia's memory will go only towards the care of pugs who need the help of Curly Angels...
