The Purpose of Pug Rescue South Africa: is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home unwanted, abandoned, neglected and surrendered pug dogs in South Africa, irrespective of age, health, breed standard or geography. We aim to give all rescue pugs a second chance to find a happy, loving home for his/her lifetime. We practice a right to a quality life policy and will only re-home healthy and sterilized pugs.
Our Success: Pugs are only adopted into compatible homes. We do not adopt on a first-come first-serve basis. It is all about placing the right pug in the right home. We will not place an ill or unhealthy pug up for adoption. We will also disclose any medical condition that we are aware of to the prospective new owners. There are some pugs that arrive at rescue and we have no knowledge of their medical history or the conditions that they were homed in. If the health of the pug is a greater concern to you than giving a rescue pug a loving home then perhaps a rescue pug is not the right choice for you. If stray pugs are handed into rescue we will advise the local SPCA that the pug is at rescue and we will keep them for 7 days to give their owner time to find them before we place them for adoption. If they are in need of veterinary care this will be provided.
If you need to surrender your pug to Pug Rescue SA you are required to complete a surrender form.
If you are interested in adopting a rescue pug please complete the adoption form.
Cost of Adoption: We do not 'sell' pugs. Pug Rescue SA is a non-profit organisation. The average cost of adopting a Rescue Pug SA is R950.00; this covers the cost of sterilization, inoculation, de-worming, Micro-Chipping and grooming.
The Pug Rescue Team: are all volunteers who, as pug lovers, give of their time, skills and resources to helping as and where they can. We are funded solely on donations which are used for veterinary bills and flight costs for transporting pugs from other provinces to Pug Rescue SA in Benoni, Gauteng. A pug in need cannot ask for help so we are their voices and we ask on their behalf. No donation is ever too small to help their plight.
