About Our Rescue Group:

UNDER MY WING - Pug Rescue is a small but growing non-profit rescue organization based in Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA & run entirely by volunteers who are dedicated to providing a bridge between a pugĺs past life and its better future.

We rescue pugs and provide them medical care (including spaying and neutering), loving attention, comfort, balanced food, companionship, and eventually a loving forever home.

Our volunteers do not receive any compensation for their efforts. They all donate their time, effort, and skills for the love of pugs.

We don't have a building or formal business hours. We don't provide an animal shelter where people can drop by, choose a pug, and then take it home.

Nevertheless, what we do makes a difference.

Come Meet our Pets:

The pugs we have in foster care can be seen by appointment only.

Our Adoption Process:

Potential adopters are required to complete a comprehensive adoption application form (providing 3 references and their vet's name and phone number), undergo a home visit, and agree to fairly strict conditions before being added to a waiting list. We want to be absolutely sure that a pug won't end up needing to find a new home again.
Adoption fees are:
$575.00 for pugs under a year old
$400.00 for pugs aged 1 to 5 years old
$300.00 over 5 years old
$200.00 Special needs

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
