ROSE CITY. — A Beavertown animal rescue group has helped save more than 50 pug dogs from a slaughterhouse in China. Now, they get to bring some of them home.
Rose City Pug Rescue, based out of Beavertown, said a China-based animal group asked for their help to save the dogs. This weekend, 13 of the 50 are traveling to Rose City.
The rescue spent about $24,000 to fly the dogs all the way from Asia to Los Angeles, and then to Portland. But they said it’s well worth the expense..
All of the dogs will go to a veterinary hospital where they’ll get all their vaccinations, a microchip, and dental work. The pugs will also get spayed or neutered.
The rescue will work to find each of them a loving home, once the vet gives them the green light to be adopted.
Five of the 13 dogs are expected to fly into RCX Saturday night.
