The Delaware Valley Pug Rescue is looking for qualified individuals or families to help us by fostering pugs prior to their adoption. If you are interested, please fill out an adoption application and indicate that you are interested in fostering. For questions regarding fostering, call us at 610-268-5574. Foster homes in southern Chester County, Wilmington, and Newark are needed!
The Delaware Valley Pug Rescue (DVPR) is a 501C3 non-profit, no-kill rescue. We are a working alliance of volunteer members dedicated to prolonging and improving the quality of life for Pug Dogs in need.
Members come from various walks of life and share an appreciation and sincere love of the breed.
Permanent homes are prescreened and approved by a DVPR representative. We provide a service for Pug Dog owners who, for whatever reason, find it impossible to keep their pet. Interim foster care is provided for a pug when a medical condition is being stabilized, a permanent home is approved, or an immediate surrender is necessary.
Our rescue focuses on the placement of only Pug Dogs, many of whom have been registered with the American Kennel Club. It is the mission of the DVPR to place the Pug Dogs as non-breeding pets; therefore, spay/neutering is mandatory and registrations become the property of the DVPR.
Funding of the rescue is accomplished through the generosity of private donations, surrendering owners, and adopters. As such, all donations are gratefully accepted and are used at the discretion of the DVPR to further its work in promoting and protecting this most charming breed. Donations to the rescue are tax deductible.
Please feel free to email us with any questions you may have. All adoptions are based on the applications we receive. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE RESCUE UNLESS YOU ARE RELINQUISHING A DOG or have another emergency.
To adopt one of our dogs, we ask you to download our application and either fax it or mail it to us. Click here for Adoption Application
