Please understand that matches are made according to what is the very best for the dog. While we maintain a waiting list of approved applicants, placement is not prioritized by length of time an application is on file. Should your status change as far as wanting to adopted a rescue Pug, please let us know. If you decide to purchase a Pug puppy, please bear in mind that nine out of ten puppies sold in pet shops are the result of puppy mills. Please take the time to locate a reputable breeder.

Thank you for your interest in the wonderful Pug dog.

Applications will be kept on file for six months. Please notify us if you wish to renew your application after that time.

Please understand that should your home be approved for placement of a rescue, and you are notified of a suitable match, we expect you to make plans to retrieve the Pug as soon as possible.  The foster home will work with you to set a realistic placement date, but our standard is within a two week period.  Again, please note, this is in the event your home is approved

For those submitting this application to volunteer and not adopt/foster (at this time), a volunteer in your area will be in touch.
