SURRENDERING YOUR PUG TO OUR RESCUE
Surrendering a member of the family (your pug) is not always easy. Sometimes there are many things that come up that either force or persuade you to do so. In recent times we have seen many things such as loss of jobs, death of a family member (the pets owner), moving or change of housing, medical bills of the animal that you simply can not afford, transfer to a job that takes you somewhere that your pet is not welcome. There are so many others, but we are here for you and the pugs and we are not here to judge.
We are your pugs angels. We take them in and care for them until they are 100% healthy. We make sure they are microchipped, spayed or neutered, up to date on all their shots, and free of any infections. They are cared for in our volunteer foster homes and seen by our vet and then they are available for adoption.
The adoption process is not taken lightly. We ensure that your pet will be in a forever home. We do several things such as a one on one interview and a home visit with a check list that fits your pugs personality with that of the new hopeful families. We hope you will consider us before any shelter or possibly selling off your pet to someone that may not understand the breed or know how to care for a pug.
The following are things we need to know, in order to place your pug into the best foster home:
Has your pug been spayed or neutered?
Is your pug up to date on its vaccinations?
Does your pug have any special needs?
For example, is it blind, deaf, on medication, does it have allergies, back or knee problems, require prescription dog food, etc.
Does your pug have any behavioral issues?
Housebreaking or food/toy aggression problems fall into this category.
Does your pug get along with dogs, cats, and children?
Is your dog a pug mix and what is it mixed with?
If the dog is a pug mix, we cannot commit to taking it into rescue without either a photo, or having one of our volunteers meet the dog. Most of our adopters are looking either for purebred pugs, or for small pug mixes that look and behave ‘puggy.’
We will ask that you provide a copy of your pug’s medical records. If you do not have a copy, please let us know.
We ask that you complete our Online Surrender Form and one of our volunteers will contact you to make surrender arrangements.
