Pug Rescue of Florida & Georgia helps pugs and pug mixes throughout Florida and Georgia. We do not have a shelter facility, we operate through a network of volunteer foster families. Since foster pugs stay with foster families until they find their forever homes, we rely on the support of these foster homes to help these pugs in need. Our foster care program allows us to learn more about our dogs, address their medical needs and enables us to make better long-term matches for both our adopters and our dogs.
What does it mean to foster? It means that you open your heart and your home to a rescue pug. You treat them as if they were your own and give them lots of love and attention, exercise and good food. You might have to take your foster pug to vet appointments (the rescue pays for the pre-approved medical care at our approved vet offices). You may also have to work on house training, social skills or behavior issues. You get to know all about your foster pug therefore you are also involved with screening applicants, taking the pug to events and meeting potential adopters.
We understand and appreciate that fostering it is a very special commitment for families. It takes time, energy, patience and a LOT of love! Our rescued pugs have often experienced many changes in their lives and our foster families help prepare them for one final change – settling in with a wonderful forever family. We know fostering is a very important job but don’t worry, we will be there to support you every step of the way.
Many of our foster homes have their own pets and many are pugs; that's great! We ask potential foster families to complete a foster application and provide information about current pets, work situation, home environment, etc. so we can determine which foster pugs might be a great match.
Foster Locations: In order to provide excellent care for our foster pugs, we have established working relationships with several vets in Florida and Georgia.
PLEASE NOTE: To apply to foster you MUST be willing and able to get your foster pug to the vet when needed.
