Alabama Pug Rescue and Adoption Inc.

Who We Are

Alabama Pug Rescue and Adoption, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the welfare of the breed of dog known as the Pug. "APRA" takes all pugs regardless of age, temperament and/or medical condition, and welcomes the rehoming of healthy pugs due to life changes. Pug mixes are also often an important part of our rescue. All pugs and pug mixes are spayed/neutered before placement, vaccinations are current and all known medical conditions are addressed and treated as appropriate. Pugs are placed in the the loving homes of volunteers where they are assessed for personality, and then carefully matched to a home that will provide only the very best. Rescue and placement is not limited to Alabama. APRA also supports the "Unpugged" and offers assistance in placing other area breeds and mixes in need of forever homes.

Adopting a friend

At Alabama Pug Rescue and Adoption, Inc. we rescue for the life of the dog. No stone is left unturned in assuring the best possible future for the family adopting, and most importantly for the dog being placed. A lengthy screening and education process is done before an application is approved. An adoption contract is completed and post-placement follow up is done. An adoption fee is charged to cover the tremendous veterinary expenses incurred by APRA. Note: APRA does not ship or transport our rescues. If you are long distance and considering adoption, please note that upon approval of a rescue pug, you must make arrangements to travel to the area in which the pug is located.
