Place a Pug

Place a Pug

Making the decision to surrender a pug can be a very difficult one, but if it's in the best interest of the pug it's the right thing to do. Seattle Pug Rescue accepts adoptable pugs regardless of their age, temperament or medical condition. Pugs surrendered to SPR receive necessary medical and dental care; are spayed or neutered and microchipped prior to placement; receive heartworm testing and routine vaccinations; and receive behavioral care, if needed.

We go to great lengths to match our rescue pugs with new loving families. Once the pug is adopted and the probation period is over, that pug's file is successfully closed.

You can help your pug find a good home in two ways. First, let us know as soon as possible that you want to surrender your pug, even if you're not ready to let them go yet. The more time we have, the better it is to find them a good foster, or even their permanant home. Second, fill out the Transfer Checklist (below) with as much information you can about the pug (see below).

To transfer ownership of a pug, fill out these two forms. Completed forms will enable SPR to find the best possible home for surrendered pugs.

Once you have completed both forms, e-mail SPR at

Please be aware that this is a volunteer organization. We will respond to your email as quickly as possible.

NOTE: The address listed on our contact information is a mail box business, do not take your pug there!

Please note: We cannot accept puggles or other pug mixes. Unfortunately, we don't have the resources to help every dog and so we concentrate on pugs only. Thanks for your understanding.

If you know of a pug in trouble, e-mail SPR at
