Adoption Applications Suspended

For the past year, the majority of pugs coming into Rescue have all been older pugs, who have many ongoing medical issues. These pugs are very hard to place and tend to remain in Foster care for long periods of time. We of course continue to cover all of their medical needs. This sort of care requires devoted foster homes, and we are lucky in that we have these homes. Thank you to our volunteers.

We have also received many more applications than we have pugs available. As of today, we have 5 pugs available, every one of them with age related or other medical issues. We also have well over 100 applications to adopt. And none of those applications are asking for an older, sick pug.

Our organization is all volunteer, and we all have families, jobs, and pugs of our own. It can be hard to come up with extra time required to do Rescue work.

For the above reasons, we are temporarily suspending new applications as of today (January 29, 2018). This will give us the opportunity catch up with homechecks, and continue working closely with the pugs we do have. Of course we will continue to accept pugs being surrendered.

Thank you for your continued support of Seattle Pug Rescue. We could not do what we do without your donations, adoptions, and volunteer time. We hope to see you at our fundraising events!

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at rescue@seattlepugs.com.
