TIGARD, OR (KPTV) – A Tigard pug rescue threw a pug party for a woman diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer.

The woman loves pugs but could never have one because of a family member’s allergy, according to Pacific Pug Rescue.

31 pugs and 37 humans attended the party Sunday afternoon, including alumni, foster parents, and rescue supporters, the rescue says.

The organization says it threw a pug party for the woman two years ago. It threw the party Sunday after the woman's family reached out for help.
