Welcome to our Doug The Pug PAWS for St. Jude fundraising page!
We’re raising funds to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: Finding cures. Saving children.®
Treatments invented at St. Jude helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago.
But 80 percent isn't good enough. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
The team at St. Jude knows that pediatric cancer treatment can be ruff, and that’s where our furry friends Huckleberry and Puggle (YES, HIS NAME IS PUGGLE) come in! They’re the official specially trained service dogs at St. Jude through the Paws at Play hospital dog program.
Huckleberry and Puggle have very important jobs and are always there to help St. Jude kids feel safe and comfortable during treatment, do procedures without sedation, get moving after surgery or during long hospital stays, and reduce stress by providing the best snuggles.
Join our pack today to make a PAWSitive impact for the kids of St. Jude!
