Please read this first before filling out the form!
If you are interested in adoption of one of our rescues we recommend you read through our website and learn more about our organisation.
Please be aware that EVERYONE who works with Pugs SOS is a volunteer and most of our dogs are fostered and are in private homes, so ALL Greetings are done by appointment only.
Please do not ask to adopt one of our pugs if you are away all day, except if you have another dog to provide company.... these rescues need people and company around them for most of the day. They have been locked in sheds, tied up on farms, left in backyards, caged on verandahs or locked on apartment balconies up until now ...we owe it to them to start their new lives living the way pugs were meant to live .. as companion dogs surrounded by people for most of the day. Thank you for your understanding.
Adoption fees range from $950 upwards. These adoption fees rarely cover our costs, as we sometimes have to spend between $400 and $800 in purchasing pugs at risk - then we have to complete all veterinary work. The general cost to Pugs SOS averages at $1,200 per pug. Older pugs (over 8 years of age) are generally re homed at a reduced rate depending on vet fees.
Adoptions by State

We keep all applications on file and we are looking for the some of the following things: (part of our standard criteria)
Is someone home often?
Do you have another dog? What breed? MUST be desexed and compatible with a pug.
Where does your dog spend most of its time? We do rehome to people that work, however we prefer someone to be home often and you must provide another dog for company. .
Have you owned a pug before?
Living status? (are you renting? you must have the approval of your landlord prior to applying for a rescue pug) We will not rehome at all to people in apartments or high rise buildings with balconies.
