The application process from beginning to end could take approximately 4 weeks, depending on availability of the applicant and the volunteer.
Once an application is submitted, our volunteer will contact your Veterinarian and references. Be sure to alert your references that a volunteer will be contacting them and for them to return the volunteers call as soon as possible so the application can be processed in a timely manner. If all goes well, our volunteer will call to schedule a home visit.
ALL members of the family are required to be present during the home visit Our volunteer will need to meet everyone at that time and will need to verify that your home is safe and suitable for a Pug. In the case where all family members cannot attend, the visit will need to be rescheduled .
Once the volunteer completes the assessment, a report will be submitted to our board of directors for review. Please be patient, we are all volunteers and we know how exciting it can be to adopt so we do all we can to quickly get all the steps done so you can start enjoying your new family member.
Our Pugs do not have AKC papers. The Pugs we get come from many different people and environments and most of the time we have no knowledge of the life they lived before
We are a 'foster based' rescue and do not have a facility to house them in. We do have "Meet & Greet" events (most every month) to allow fosters to bring Pugs and for prospective adopters can meet and play with them. Please check our EVENTS page for our upcoming Meet and Greets!
