We are a statewide Pug breed specific rescue. We rely soley on volunteers, and all of our dogs reside in private foster homes and are cared for as a member of the family until they are adopted to permanent homes. Our volunteers are located throughout the State of Florida as far south as Ft. Myers/Naples and as far north as the Panhandle area and over to Jacksonville. We have a strong concentration in both the Tampa Bay area and in the Orlando area.

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.
