It’s Great to Meet You!
Jessica and Matt fell in love with pugs when they got their first pug puppy Rocky in April 2005. Later that year, they became active with the Omaha Pug Club and their love for pugs grew exponentially. In 2008 the opportunity to foster a pug in need came and they took in their first foster pug, Lily. Lily was a puppy mill survivor who didn’t know anything about ‘real’ life. Grass, stairs, the TV were all new things to Lily. Within a month of fostering, they knew that their life would be the same without Lily in it. So they adopted her. Soon they learned about more and more pugs in need and with the help of Megan and Si Hollibaugh, started up Pug Partners of Nebraska. Since then with the help of our amazing volunteers, Pug Partners of Nebraska has rescued over 230 pugs. For Jess and Matt the most rewarding part of doing rescue work is seeing families cherish the joy of owning pugs. Pugs are such caring, loyal, funny dogs that they believe everyone’s household would be happier with pugs! Without the support of our wonderful donators, volunteers PPN wouldn’t be able to help so many needy pugs and make so many families happy. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for all your support!! You can email Jessica Ellis, President, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My name is Jen Haines, Vice President and foster director for PPN. My husband Cliff and I have two pugs, Guppy who was a package deal when he married me and Shurlock who was our first PPN foster pug. He claimed his permanent residency when he stuck his giant tongue into Cliffs glass of beer. Shurlock a puppy mill survivor has shown us a whole new perspective on love and patients. We volunteer our time with PPN because it is so refreshing to know that there are others out there who share that same compassion we do. Knowing that we are giving pugs the opportunity for a happily ever after is what its all about. Thank you all so much for you donations, every bit helps!!

My name is Kristi Jacobs and I am the Adoption Director for Pug Partners of Nebraska. My husband Bill and I fell in love with pugs 20 years ago with our first pug Bubba. I have 4 pugs of my own (all rescued) and couldn’t imagine my life without them. I volunteered with PPN 2 years ago and am now doing something that I love. I have the privelege to be able to accept adoption applications and choose where our wonderful pugs spend their furever days. To be owned by a pug is a privilege! But we simply could not do this without the countless volunteers and hours spent on improving the lives of these pugs. Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped make PPN a wonderful rescue organization!!!!! You can email Kristi Jacobs, Adoption Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

My name is Larry Mozer; I live in Lincoln with my wife LuAnn and our dogs and cats. I work at UNL in the libraries and LuAnn is an RN. I am the Secretary for Pug Partners of Nebraska and also have been helping with adoption applications. Both LuAnn and I help in other areas (events, transportation, etc.), when our schedules allow, as needed. I first fell in love with pugs in June 2007. After the death of one of our Pekingese (she was hit by a car), we were looking for another Pekingese and came across a pug. Although we did not get that particular pug, I was smitten by the look of the pug and we ended up getting Bandit (a PekePug) who was 10 weeks old at the time. I became totally enamored with Pugs at that point and Bandit became totally spoiled. My wife, LuAnn, grew up with a pug and was already a fan of the breed. We started the Lincoln Pug Club in June 2008 (and joined the Omaha Pug Club as well). We now have a 2nd pug, Adrienne, who we got from PPN and a corgi mix (Molly) plus 2 cats. We became involved with Pug Partners, having met many of the PPN people at the Omaha Pug Club meetings, in January 2010 when we fostered our first pug for PPN. We have become more involved over the last year leading to my current position. Both LuAnn and I really enjoy working with PPN and all the dedicated volunteers who have helped PPN save so many pugs!
