MN-MPR will not be taking adoption applications for while. We have an overwhelming number of applications that we are working on but we do not have very many pugs being surrendered. For every pug we get in rescue we have at least 10 applicants waiting. Although it is great that pugs are staying in their homes and don't need to be rescued it is difficult for those looking to adopt! So all of our applicants are patiently waiting for the pug of their dreams! We encourage you to check back with us frequently but please also know that their are other great rescues with dogs in need of homes (and some non breed specific rescues do get pugs in as well!).
For those of you who have submitted an application or are approved (have your references checked and home visit complete), please be patient with us! We are getting pugs in rescue but some of them need a lot of medical care prior to adoption or we may have someone already waiting for a pug coming in.
Thank you all for your continued support!!! We couldn't continue to rescue pugs without all of our supporters!!!
One comment we are getting a lot lately is that people are wondering why there aren't as many rescue pugs.
Well, let's bust that myth!
Pug rescue is BUSY!!
However, since we have many more applications than pugs (what a GREAT thing!), most of our pugs are being adopted without even going to the website. Here is a photo of all the pugs that have been through rescue in the last month or so. All are currently set to be adopted!
If you would like to donate to their medical expenses, please click here. Thank you for supporting the pugs in rescue!
Because of our supporters, the rescue was able to provide medical care and a forever homes to 35 pugs in 2014! We had many pugs that needed quite a bit of medical care before adoption. In 2014, we paid $34,492.38 directly to veterinary clinics. Most pugs needed some sort of surgery, whether it was bladder stone removal, mast cell tumor removal, hernias, eye surgeries, extreme dental needs etc. That is all in addition to our regular vet care that the rescue provides to pugs including vaccines/spay/neuter.
Thank you to all who continue to make donations, supporters and our iFosters (who make monthly donations) to the pug rescue. We would not be able to do what we do for pugs if it wasn’t for your support. Your contributions have and will be used to further the mission of the rescue and provide a safe and loving sanctuary for abandoned, surrendered, stray and neglected pugs. Midwest Pug Rescue - MN Division works to raise public awareness of the plight of homeless animals through our various community events. We are an all-volunteer organization of pug lovers who are dedicated to the breed with the goal of providing fairy tail endings for our curly tailed friends.

Adopting a shelter or a rescue dog is a wonderful experience. It is important to be ready for the responsibility
of being a pet owner. Many people adopt or rescue a dog without considering the long term costs associated
with owning a dog. Unfortunately, a good percentage of adopted dogs end up where they started.
It is important to remember that adopting a dog is a significant decision.
The dog is counting on you to be his forever owner. Use our pet calculator to determine an
approximate cost of owning a dog.
**If you have found a lost/stray pug**:Please contact your local animal shelters and veterinarians offices prior to contacting
MN Midwest Pug Rescue.
Quite often, owners of lost pets have contacted these agencies looking for their pets.
Additionally, shelters and veterinarians can scan the pet to see if it is micro chipped and
reunite it with its owner.
Due to many city ordinances and laws the pug must be at the local shelter for a specified number
of days before the rescue can step in and take the dog. Please consider taking the dog to the local shelter instead of your home so
that the process of either finding the owner or getting the pug into rescue can be expedited.
As a rescue we work with many of the shelters and may be able to pull the pug from the shelter after the initial hold period.
