The Pug Dog Welfare & Rescue Association is a Registered Charity (No. 276067) and has been operating since 1973.
We appreciate that surrendering your pug is a very difficult decision, and we are here to help in any way we can. All cases of rescue and rehoming are dealt with in confidence. We never judge – we just do our best for all concerned.
We always endeavour to place rescue pugs in a home that suits their particular needs, and where possible with owners with previous experience of the pug breed.
Our volunteers deal with some extremely emotional surrenders. They spend a lot of time reassuring the people who surrender, that they are doing the right thing for their beloved pug. In many cases this support is extended to after the surrender, and for a few weeks until the pug has gone to its forever home.
Some people find this a comfort, whilst others need a clean break.
On the map below, you will see that we have divided the United Kingdom into 10 Areas.
If you wish to surrender your pug, please look carefully at the map, and follow the instructions given below.
