Our pugs are not free with our adoption fees varying from pug to pug. We take into account things such as a pug’s age, medical conditions and how much it has cost us to make them fit for adoption when setting this fee. These fees help, but do not always, cover some of our costs which include desexing, vaccination, microchipping, heartworm testing, worming and flea treatments, medication, food, beds, bowls, shampoo, leads, collars etc.
All applicants must be over the age of 18, reside in the state of Victoria. We ask that potential adopters complete our adoption application questionaire. If they have on offer what one of our pugs is looking for in a new home we then will conduct a phone interview. If that is successful then we will have a representative complete a house and yard check, in many cases the pug in question will attend the house & yard check as well.
Our pugs vary in age and health. Some pugs come to us in perfect health whilst other need some or extensive rehabilitation. We rarely have puppies so suggest that if you want a puppy or we don’t have a suitable pug for you that you do your research and purchase one from an ethical breeder, who breeds for the purpose of improving the breed not just to make money. Dogs Victoria www.vca.org.au or The Pug Club of Victoria www.pugclubvictoria.com may be able to assist you in your search.
Pugs are not placed on a “first come, first served” basis. We try to match up the needs of the pug with the desires and lifestyle of the adopting family.
If you have read our ‘Is A Pug For You?’ page and would like to offer a loving, caring home to one of our rescue pugs please visit our ‘Available Pugs’ page to view our pugs currently seeking new homes.
