Pug Fest is in Milwaukee on Sunday!!
Volunteers are gearing up for a fun filled weekend in Milwaukee for their annual PUG FEST! This is a fundraiser that benefits pug rescues all across the country. Midwest Pug Rescue - MN will be there!! There are many activities, events, merchandise, and pugs! If you are interested in attending, please visit their website by clicking here. Since our volunteers are in Milwaukee and are preparing for the event, please know we are getting your messages, but will only be responding to immediate needs May 15-18. We hope to see you there!!
Kiki is a special pug!! Not only is she sweet and loves her humans, but she is lucky to be here today! She was brought to a vet to be euthanized because she was so sick. She could barely blink. The vet discovered it was diabetes and was able to help her recover. Once she was a little more stablized, the vet surrendered Kiki to the rescue to continue her care. Though Kiki will need insulin shots for the rest of her life, she is a VERY happy pug and glad to be alive! Now that her glucose levels are stable, she will be able to get her spay and dental cleaning done the beginning of May. She is looking for her forever home and will be ready to love them up middle to end of May. To read more about Kiki, click here!
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.
