Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Manitoba Pug Rescue (MPR) is a non-profit organization founded in 2007 and is run by volunteers. We are dedicated to the rescue, care and placement of all surrendered, abandoned, and abused pugs. We provide our rescues with veternary care, fostering, food, and find them a safe, loving forever home.

Our rescue does not have a facility where a potential family can drop by, pick out a pug and take him home that day. Rescued pugs live in foster homes, where they are evaluated and cared for until we find the right adoptive family for them. Manitoba Pug Rescue services pugs and pug x's in need within the whole Province of Manitoba.

From time to time, we also have other small dog breeds available for adoption.

Our Adoption Process:

If you would like to adopt one of our rescue pugs, we ask that you begin by filling out our adoption application form. One of our Placement Co-Ordinators will review the completed application and will contact the references that you have provided. Once this has been done and you are approved, the Placement Co-Ordinator will contact you to set up a home visit and make an appointment for you to meet the adoptable pug.

All pugs that come into our care are unique and each have a different set of circumstances leading to why and how they became a rescue pug. Some may have behavioural and trust issues stemming from abuse, abandonment or having been kept in a kennel or shed as a breeding pug. A rescue dog requires consistent routine and training, as the majority of pugs that come into our care are not house trained and/or have behavioural issues.

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.
