A Place for Hope is a forever home for Pugs and Pug Pals who are deemed unadoptable for medical or age reasons. It a commitment made by the President of Alabama Pug Rescue and Adoption, Inc. to provide the space and care needed for those dogs accepted into “A Place for Hope.” This “Sanctuary” is a home environment where the rescues remain for life. Fundraising, volunteer and educational activities, as well as visitation of the residents are planned annually.  The need to raise funds to provide this resource is continual. The love and commitment was secured long ago.



A Place for Hope begins with the following criteria for acceptance.

1. Long Term Care
Dogs having been available for adoption for a period of 15 months without suitable adoptive homes being found and requiring life-long medical care due to a chronic illness throughout the duration of their stay.
These dogs will be available for adoption only if a situation is found where there is the ability to care for the dog, and to understand fully the commitment involved. 

2. Hospice Care
Dogs that enter the rescue umbrella of APRA whose age or medical condition deems they are not suitable adoption candidates due to their predicted life expectancy and condition at the time of rescue.


3.  Emotional Needs
We need your help to assure that the dogs accepted into this program will have a secure and consistent future.

Dogs who arrive in rescue as victims of neglect and/or abuse whose foster home has worked to stabilize the dog's temperament.  These are dogs who may be a threat to themselves, other animals or people if placed, and includes those dogs that have been returned to rescue after placement because of such issues.



We are asking your help through donations in the following areas: supplies individualized for each dog, supplies to maintain the environment of “A Place for Hope,” and monetary donations. Beneath the description of each resident accepted into A Place for Hope will be a list of specific needs. Needs for “APFH” are listed after the resident needs.

If you have questions regarding the featured resident, please contact pugsrescued@aol.com.

Please help us to make A Place for Hope a place for them
to call home - forever.
