PUG RESCUE

Why it is important to rescue pugs

According to National estimates:

  • Approximately 3.9 million dogs enter animal shelters nationwide every year.

  • Each year 1.2 million dogs get euthanized

  • Approximately 1.4 million dogs are adopted each year

  • About 542,000 dogs enter shelters as strays and are returned to their owners

  • Of the dogs entering shelters, approximately 35% are adopted, 31% are euthanized and 26% of dogs who came in as strays are returned to their owner.

  • About twice as many animals enter shelters as strays compared to the number that are relinquished by their owners.

If these facts are not enough for you and you are still debating between buying a pug from a breeder or a store, and rescuing, adopting a pug, know that you will not necessarily get a healthier, genetically better, perfectly loving pug companion from the breeder or store.

It is a fact, that because of financial gain and lack of care and knowledge, many breeders are putting out pugs in great numbers with genetic defects, passing on illnesses, allergies and other health problems of which many are not curable. It used be way back that breeders had champions and only bred champions; this is rarely the case now.

By buying from a non-champion breeder you are supporting these malpractices. If you are not showing pugs then you would not be buying from a champion breeder. Therefore, in this case, you can be part of the solution of helping the needy pugs that have been rescued from the pug organizations listed here and adopt a pug with them.

From my personal experience of 11 years saving pugs, I could not tell the difference between a rescued one and a pug bought from a non-champion breeder. As a matter of fact the first pug I rescued, Teddy Bear, was up there in the quality breeding lines of champs. He was minutes from being euthanized and proved to be my biggest friend, companion. And in part because of Teddy's rescue, Pug Rescue of San Diego was formed, raising thousands of dollars and homes for thousands of ready to adopt pugs.

Adopting through a rescue group

from Wikipedia

Most rescue groups use similar adoption procedures, including completing an application, checking a veterinary reference, conducting a phone interview and a home visit. Rescue organizations are usually volunteer-run organizations and survive on donations and adoption fees. The adoption fees do not always cover the significant costs involved in rescue, which can include traveling to pick up an animal in need, providing veterinary care, vaccinations, food, spaying and neutering, training, and more.

Most animals in the care of rescue groups live with foster home volunteers as members of the family until an appropriate adopter is found. There are a number of different techniques that can be used to make the transition from life at a rescue's foster home to an adoptive home easier on the animal. Generally, rescue groups provide adopters with basic information to aid in a successful transition.

Often, adoption counsellors are involved in the process in order to ensure that the pet is being sent to a good, fitting home. Questionnaires for adoption vary between organizations, but are essentially used to ensure that the animal being adopted suits the lifestyle of the prospect owner and will have all of his or her needs fulfilled.
