Pugalug Pug Rescue is Toronto, ON, Canada based rescue that acts as a bridge between a pug's past life and its future forever home. It is a group of volunteers who are committed to helping rescued pugs by providing medical care, loving attention, comfort, food, companionship and a forever home. It is a process whereby the pug's needs are paramount both during its time in the rescue process and when its ideal adoptive home is being determined.

Our rescue organization has no building and no business hours; it is not an animal shelter where a potential purchaser can drop buy, choose a pug and take it home. Rescue is not a place to get a pug cheaply. Potential adopters are required to complete a comprehensive application, undergo a home visit, have references checked and agree to fairly stringent conditions before being approved. We want to make absolutely sure that the pug, who has suffered so much upheaval already, doesn't wind up back in rescue and have to undergo the process again because of an inappropriate adoption.
