Application Forms:
All forms must be downloaded and submitted by United States mail in order for you to be considered for adoption of one of our Pugs.  The rescue does not accept "postage due" mail.  An application normally requires 2 first class stamps.  If you choose to Express Mail your application be sure to check the waiver box, otherwise the letter is delayed as it must be retrieved from the Post Office at a time a volunteer is available.  Applications must be completed in their entirety. 

Unlike some rescue organizations we do not charge to mail you an application, we only ask that you place the 82 cents postage on the envelope which is being returned to you so that the rescue does not incur that cost.  We will promptly return an adoption application packet to you which will include the adoption application, 2 Veterinary release forms and a check list.  This will begin the adoption process.
The adoption donation for our Pugs ranges from $150 to $400 dependent on the age of the Pug and the health status.  Older Pugs are generally less to adopt but are considerably more expensive to care for by the organization. 

The adoption donation includes their Rabies, Distemper, Corona, and Bordetella vaccines.  Each Pug is spay or neutered, heartwormand fecal tested and on preventative heartworm medication, micro-chipped, treated for any other issues that may be present when examined by our Veterinarian and their teeth cleaned when deemed necessary.
The $5 application fee required (US funds) to process your application covers the cost of paper, ink and postage with regard to your application once it is received.  Applications that are not complete only delay the process for approval and at times are viewed upon in a negative manner in that it does not appear that the applicant is putting forth the effort necessary.  Please answer all questions as completely as possible.
The availability of any of our Pugs is based on approved applications.  Although a Pug may appear on our web site at this time, there may be applicants with approved applications that are being contacted to ascertain their interest in adopting the available Pug or other applicants that are also applying for that Pug.  If you are truly interested in adopting a Pug and you wait until you see a Pug that is of interest to you, there may be several people ahead of you on a waiting list that have already submitted an application and have been tentatively approved for adoption.  We therefore strongly suggest you complete an application for adoption so you may be added to our waiting list once your application has been tentatively approved.  We receive Pugs from individuals, families, shelters, animal control and other sources.  We may not have the Pug that is of interest to you today but may rescue 5 Pugs tomorrow.   Do not hesitate; apply to adopt your Pug today.
