Animal shelters and rescue groups put pugs available for adoption on their respective websites or on pet adoption advertisement sites such as Petfinder and Adopt a Pet. Adoptable pugs may also be available through the Humane Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals chapters across the country.
The Dallas/Fort Worth Pug Rescue Club in Texas is the largest pug rescue organization in the United States. The organization rescues all purebred pugs in Texas regardless of age or pre-existing medical condition. Available pugs for adoption are listed on its official website. The site provides information about the dogs, including age, characteristics, history and recent photos. Anyone interested in adopting a pug at the DFW Pug Rescue Club must submit an application.
Petfinder and AdoptaPet.com are two of the largest pet adoption advertisement sites in North America. Many pug rescue groups and animal shelters put adoptable dogs on the site. Both sites provide information about the adoptable dogs, including history, traits, received vaccinations and any medical conditions. Adopt a Pet also provides a list of pug-focused rescue groups in the United States that offer pugs for adoption.
Humane Society and SPCA chapters rescue all types of dogs, including pug dogs and puppies. The Humane Society and SPCA may charge the same adoption fees as rescue groups because they are dedicated to caring for the dogs until they can find the animal a loving and safe home. The adoption fees incurred at these organizations may also cover the animal's maintenance medication costs.
