Pug Rescue Directory

The pug, with its wrinkled brow, soulful eyes, and heartwarming snorts, has captured the hearts of many. Yet,  there are countless pugs in need of a forever home. Whether they’ve been surrendered, found wandering, or rescued from less than ideal conditions, every pug deserves a chance at love and a comfortable lap. Here, we’ve compiled a growing list of pug rescue organizations (mostly US – but let us know about international rescues and we’ll list them), dedicated to ensuring these affectionate, comical canines find the loving homes they truly deserve. Whether you’re looking to adopt, foster, volunteer, or donate, this resource will guide you to the right organization in your area. If you know of a pug rescue not on this list, please let us know at!
