Portland pugs show off costumes at ‘Pug-O-Ween’ fundraiser


Dozens of Portland pugs were dressed in their Halloween best Sunday afternoon at the Oaks Park pavilion for the third annual Pug-O-Ween fundraiser.

The event was hosted by the Pacific Pug Rescue, a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned or neglected pugs.

Event festivities included a “Zombie Apugalyse” themed costume contest, pug caricatures, a silent auction and fortune-telling.

All proceeds from the fundraiser were donated to the Pacific Pug Rescue and will be used to help provide medical care and assistance for rescued pugs.
