About Our Rescue Group:

Who We Are

Green Mountain Pug Rescue is a 501 (c) (3) non profit rescue group of volunteers within Vermont here to help pugs. They are placed in foster homes with dedicated volunteers for evaluation and vet visits which include: getting them up to date on shots, spaying/neutering them if needed.

Green Mountain Pug Rescue is supported by an all volunteer staff. We are only able to help pugs through the generous monetary donations and volunteer time that people graciously give.

All donations are used to help our pugs. All of the funds donated will help pay for the veterinary care, giving these very deserving pugs back the highest quality of life possible

Our Adoption Process:

The purpose of Pug Adoption is to provide a healthy, happy, home for the lifetime of the pug. It is not to provide a low-cost pet. We see adoption as a privilege that families are selected for based on individual merit, not on a first come basis. The adoption fees are used towards support of the pugs. Money is used for vet bills, medicine, food, toys, and other supplies. Absolutely NO money is paid to volunteers for salaries or mileage. Extra funds are used for rescue efforts. All applicants must be legal adults with a means of supporting a pet PLUS any unexpected medical issues. Stability is very important. Many pugs will have one thing or another happen during their lifetime that requires some form of attention. The needs of the pug are most important. Pugs need stable homes quickly. Pugs need to settle in to a home and not to bounce from foster to foster. They need affection and tender loving care. GMPR requires a home visit on every applicant - no exceptions..


YOU MUST BE 18 TO FILL THIS OUT!

We only adopt to people living in NH, Vt and Northeast New York (Albany north to Canada including Plattsbugh and surrounding towns.)

4/23/06- At GMPR's Board of Directors Meeting it was voted on and approved to raise the adoption fees effective 7/1/06. Due to the rising cost in vet fees, we need to take these steps. Each pug is spay/neutered, all shots given, heartworm/lyme tested, and bloodwork done to ensure they are as healthy as can be. We also take care of any other medical issue that could come up for any pug in foster care- if they need to see an eye vet- they do. If they have rotten gross teeth- we do a dental. We do whatever the pugs need to be healthy to get adopted out.

STARTING 7/1/06 our adoption fees will be as follows:

Puppies to age 1 yr $450.00
1yr to 6 yrs $350.00
7-10 yrs is $150.00
11+ yrs is $100.00

Any pure breed that is bred to create a "designer breed" for example- puggles, Chugs, Jugs, etc- as of March 1, 2007 their adoption fees will be $250.00 until age 7yrs then the adoption fee is $150.00.

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.
