January 2012 – What goes on behind the scenes of Pug Rescue?

January 28, 2012

You may wondered how a community based foster care networks, which our organisation is one of, operate.  Unlike a pound or a shelter we do not have kennels, a shelter or even an office.  Instead the pugs that come into our care are welcomed into the family homes and the hearts of our amazingly selfless volunteers who care for our special breed whilst they are physically and mentally rehabilitated and matched to a perfect forever home no matter how long that journey may take. 

Recently as part of  The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive two of our beautiful pugs, Roy & Fez, featured in ‘Underdogs’, a documentary following 5 dogs from homelessness to hopefully forever loving homes.  ‘Underdogs’ aims to create awareness, bust myths about homeless dogs, inspire people to adopt and also show people the journey dogs take when they enter into a community based foster care networks foster care program.
