A huge thanks to Tatyana, Joy, and Tiffany for donating their sewing services to make these pug themed face masks for Pug Rescue of Korea.

Hi PRK supporters- I am happy to sew these masks for PRK! I work for LA Wilshire Periodontics as a registered dental hygienist and have been doing this for the past 32 years. I love bringing oral health back to my patients. When I am not working, I help out as a Girl Scout Leader mentoring girls on their Gold Award projects. I have 3 grown children and a husband who adore pugs and all animals! I was first introduced to PRK when we decided to adopt a pug. We got Boba in 2012, formerly Balloon, who was fostered by Stacy Rolison in San Diego. Since then, we've fostered 3 pugs and became a foster failure with Chibi, formerly Cherybell. I love the unselfish work Kim does for the pugs in Korea and the group who supports her here in Cali. Stay safe everyone!

We have been fostering for Animal Compassion team of Fresno for over 2 years. We adopted Pirate (formerly Carlos) from Pug Rescue of Korea in 2016. My husband Michael and I are proud parents of 2 human kids and 4 rescued four - legged kids. Lucky and Bear are GS, Pirate the pug and KeKoa the Saint Bernard. I enjoy going on a cruise, red wine and cooking.
