My story

Our sweet man Virgil was surrendered to the shelter by his owners due to supposedly bad behavior. We noticed when he first arrived that he did not care much for humans and would sometimes show his teeth when he felt threatened but after some TLC from the staff and reassurance that he was safe, Virgil has since come out of his shell. He also had some medical issues and we noticed that as those got resolved his sweeter side came out. Once and a while we catch him playing with a toy or two—such a sweet sight to see a senior play  We hope someone out there wants to share their home with this handsome and a bit eccentric little lad.

More about this rescue

Pug Nation Rescue of Los Angeles is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, care, and placement of abandoned, neglected, unwanted, displaced, and abused pugs. Our goal is to find every homeless pug a forever home; if we cannot do that, we pledge to provide a comfortable and loving place for sick or unwanted pugs to live out their lives. Our Board of five and numerous volunteers are passionate about Pug Rescue and live by our motto of “One Pug at a Time”. We feel that through our efforts we can change many of these forgotten Pug’s lives. In order to find our Pugs a home as soon as possible, we hold at least three adoption fairs a month and also organize a number of fundraising events, including the annual Pugtacular festival and Legendary Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s in West Hollywood. These events and on-line fundraising have provided the money to help pay for vet treatments, medicine and loving care at our Pug Station. We rely on the generosity of our supporters through donations and participation in our fundraising activities. If you would like to make a donation, find out about the next event, become a volunteer, foster, or adopt your own rescue pug, you are in the right place! You can also follow us on Facebook and twitter, there is always something going on and new pugs needing your help.
