A Little About Our Organization...

Pugs U Gotta Save ( P.U.G.S. ) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to rescue and tending to the needs of abandoned and surrendered Pugs in Virginia! P.U.G.S. fosters abandoned and surrendered Pugs from animal shelters, puppy mills and from owners unable to continue caring for their dog. Our ultimate goal is to permanently place homeless pugs into forever homes with loving families. While in our care, we provide our Pugs with a loving foster home, address the Pug's medical needs and provide any behavioral training needed to ensure that our dogs will transition well into their new forever homes. We also offer public education on the Pug breed and on the unique responsibilities of Pug ownership. 

As we are still a relatively new organization, our current focus is on obtaining the additional volunteers necessary to better serve the needs of the Pugs entrusted to our care and in need of our care. Our critical needs are for volunteers and donations (many received through events) to support the dog's needs and to provide veterinary care for our Pugs. No matter how much or how little time you have to offer, we have a volunteer job for you! Volunteering for a rescue is a wonderful way to enjoy the Pug breed, to make a difference in the life of an animal and to make new friends. Please contact us to learn more about the ways you can help

Adopting a rescued Pug is a wonderful way to support the breed and to give a good home to a deserving Pug in need. Most rescued Pugs are healthy, happy, well adjusted dogs who just need a committed, loving and responsible owner. If you are interested in adopting a Pug, please contact us for more information. Our adoption fees are reasonable and we provide adoption counseling to ensure that you are matched with a Pug who meets the needs of your home environment. Please don't discount the love and satisfaction that a rescued Pug can offer you and your family! Take a few moments to contact us to learn about the rescue experience before you buy from a breeder or a pet store. You might be surprised how many great little Pugs just need a second chance.


All for the Love of Pugs
