Marcus Boni's Fundraiser:

Helping my friends at Northern Illinois Pug Rescue

THE STORY:

Hello Dear Friends,

Normally I tend to shy away from asking for help or support, but there is a special group of little ones that need some extra support right now. As many of you know, I am quite fond of supporting Pug Rescue. I've been a foster dad for many years and it has blessed me with some of the most rewarding experiences of my life.

My dear friends at Northern Illinois Pug Rescue are in dire need of funds to help a special little pug named Ozzie. After being abandoned and forced to fend for himself for several weeks in 100+ degree weather, Ozzie was caught and brought into the rescue. The little peanut was found to be in desperate need of a liver shunt surgery that costs over $2,000. The rescue is committed to getting Ozzie the help he needs while continuing to raise funds to bring in many more pugs currently looking for rescue support.

I've worked with the wonderful folks at NIPRA for many years. These are incredible volunteers that open up their homes to pugs in need 365 days a year, some of them taking in 4+ foster dogs at a time. NIPRA solely relies on monies from fundraising and adoption fees to care for the pugs who are in desperate need of help. Can you hear the Sarah McLachlan music playing yet?

In all seriousness, I'm kindly asking my dear friends to help me raise money for Ozzie and the NIPRA organization. I am resolute in my goal to help support them and hope that the simple fact I am asking for your help reinforces my sincerity. Any funds raised over $2000 will be donated to NIPRA for additional intake costs due to surrendering of other pugs.

Anything you can give is appreciated with limitless pug snorts as kisses. Your support is so very kind and I thank you very much!

Love,

Marcus Boni
