FOX21 – Meet FOX21’s Pet of the Week, Ruger!

Ruger is a 10 year old male German Shepherd / Husky. He came to Pikes Peak Humanitarian Society (HSPPR) as an assignment from the owner. Ruger isn’t fully socialized with other dogs and isn’t very good with cats, but he would like to find a home he can retreat to and have a human companion.

Did we mention that Ruger is super cute and has a blue eye?

Ruger’s adoption fee is $ 75, which includes the voucher for a vet exam, vaccinations, 30 days of pet health insurance, a one-year dog license, and a microchip.

Upcoming events at HSPPR

HSPPR’s Whisker Ball is scheduled for Saturday, November 13 at the Pueblo Convention Center. Tickets cost $ 100 per person, with all proceeds going to help the animals at the Pueblo Refuge.

The evening will include a 3-course gourmet dinner with wine, a silent auction, a live auction and, everyone’s favorite, the parade of animals to adopt!

Welcome furry guests

Participants are not only encouraged to dress up and get out of the house, but also to bring their well behaved dogs to join in the fun!

Dogs are welcome to join guests at their table and are encouraged to dress in their finery.

If you don’t have a dog and are looking to add a new member to your family, the HSPPR will have plenty of puppies, cats, and other furry friends to visit.

Silent / live auctions

Jewelry, artwork, certificates from some of Pueblo’s favorite restaurants, and handmade quilts will be featured at this year’s silent auction. Plus, guests can enter to win a dream getaway to Mexico.

During the live auction, guests will have a chance to win a vacation home in Tuscany, a vacation home on a golf course in South Carolina, a sightseeing flight over Pueblo, a Bronco’s Bash, which includes a private car to Denver, dinner and bonus tickets to a Bronco game, a getaway to Crested Butte and more!
