What is a PUg Derby?


Pug Derby is an opportunity drawing, in which each drawing ticket purchased is represented by a Pug dog. 5 pugs will "race" (saunter, skitter, play, dilly dally) from the starting line to the finish line. Everybody wins, but how fast your dog makes it to the finish will determine the size/value of your prize! 


(1) Meet the contenders - Choose a Pug*! This dog will represent your drawing ticket.

(2) “Place your bets” - Purchase your drawing ticket. If you want to purchase multiple drawing tickets, choose a different dog for each ticket to maximize your chance at a larger prize. You can only win once per dog

(3) Everyone wins! Everybody who purchases a ticket gets a prize with larger prizes if your dog places: Win, Place or Show (1st, 2nd or 3rd) See below for the list of prizes!


The Pug Derby will be aired during our event April 29th. 




For out of state/area supporters, advertised prizes may be substituted for an item of equal value.


*purchasing a Pug Derby ticket gets you a drawing prize only; it does NOT get you an actual dog to take home!

All proceeds from this event help care for and save homeless dogs and cats in our communities.
