EarthWise Pet Supply, a neighborhood natural pet food, supply, grooming and self wash pet store, is gearing up for the holidays, and will host a holiday fundraiser for the Pug Rescue of San Diego County on Saturday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 7805 Highland Village Place, Suite G-101 in the Albertson’s shopping center in the Carmel Valley/Torrey Highlands neighborhood. The event is free and open to pet parents, their dog, and their families!

The Pug Rescue of San Diego County’s holiday event is an annual affair and features a barbecue, a bake sale, an opportunity drawing, and Pet Photos with Santa. The holiday costume and “P-ugly” sweater contests are back, where we encourage not only Pugs, but all pets and their people to get into the holiday spirit and have some fun wearing ugly sweaters or their finest holiday costumes. Prizes will be provided by EarthWise Pet Supply. Additionally, $10 nail trims will be offered that day, with 50 % of the proceeds going to Pug Rescue of San Diego County.

“We work with rescue groups throughout the year, and when I heard that Pug Rescue needed a location for the holiday party, I jumped at the chance to host them,” stated Norma Gervais, Owner, EarthWise Pet Supply. “Who doesn’t love Pugs? We’re honored to partner with them and provide an opportunity to gather and raise critical funds for the organization.”

Gervais is also arranging for representatives from well-known brands such as The Honest Kitchen and My Perfect Pet to feature food demos and offer pet treat samples as well. EarthWise Pet Supply will also put together a gift guide that describes the most requested items for Pugs they offer at the store. Pug Rescue of San Diego County will offer unique gift items at their Pug Boutique in the event area, with proceeds from the boutique benefiting the nonprofit organization.
