Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
The Pug Rescue Network (PRN) was launched in September of 2004 by a small group of individuals who have spent years working with other rescues. After seeing the tremendous difference volunteers could make in a rescued pets life, these five individuals had an idea. After spending considerable time doing research as well as participating in extensive dog training and behavioral seminars, the concept was drawn and the foundation of the Pug Rescue Network concept and mission became a reality:
Embrace the neglected, forgotten, and displaced Pugs with compassion, providing hope through education and awareness, helping them by finding their way to a permanent loving home.
To ensure each Pug is given the best chance at finding a new home, all Pugs turned into the Pug Rescue Network are evaluated for temperament and overall disposition. They are then placed into our Foster Network of private homes - we do not have a facility for you to visit.
All dogs receive the following care prior to adoption: Comprehensive examination by a licensed veterinarian, Vaccinations (rabies-1 year, distemper, bordetella)
Our Adoption Process:

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
