Fostering

Essential to the continued success of Pacific Pug Rescue is the foster program. Foster families open their homes and their hearts, often on short notice, to Pugs and Pug mixes that have been neglected, abused or unwanted. There may be no information about the Pug's health and temperament and he/she may not be housebroken. Foster parents take on this obligation with patience and dedication. Our foster homes are located in the Portland/Vancouver area.

Basic responsibilities are:

  • To provide a safe environment, food and lots of love for a Pug in transition.
  • While PPR pays for all authorized medical expenses, foster volunteers take their Pugs to veterinary appointments, outreach events and meetings with prospective adopters.
  • Foster families help us evaluate the Pug and keep our adoption coordinator informed regarding their progress.

It is rewarding and inspiring to see your foster Pugs adopted into homes where they will be loved and cherished for the rest of their lives. And, since you are giving up a little Pug you have grown to love, it is also a little bittersweet. But when they go to their new home, there is an opening for the next Pug and the next.
