Board of Directors


Mary Dolan

Mary was introduced to pugs via Gomez - a confident, affectionate, super cute pug who truly believed he was human. An attempt to find a companion for Gomez (which he scorned) opened the door to pug rescue and things have never been the same! Mary has been involved with pug rescue in Los Angeles County for over a decade. The one-eyed pirate pugs, the pugs that have “issues,” are her favorite. 


Amy Ruiz

Amy is a devoted fur mom to 4 black pug girls - Pizza, Runty, Phoebe, and Pie - @pizzathepug on Instagram. She says the breed chose her 16 years ago. Her first pug Brody gave her profound love and a purpose. She is a trusted TPQF foster and she believes that fostering & volunteering rewards you deeply.


Lily Cheng

Lily has been living the Pug Life for the past 7 years - she is fur mom to pugs Butternut and Marty. She loves pugs because they have so much personality and their compassion towards their humans is indescribable. Lily believes rescue is important because there are so many lovable dogs that are neglected and mistreated, who deserve a chance to live, love, and be happy. The love from a rescue dog is absolutely priceless.
