Who We Are
DFW Pug Rescue Club, Inc. is a non-profit, non-stock corporation run by a small group of volunteers dedicated to the rescue and placement of Pug dogs in new, forever, loving homes. Our pugs come from shelters and private-owners who can no longer care for their dogs for whatever reason. Whether they are strays or owner-surrenders, we accept ALL pugs regardless of age or medical condition.
We were founded in 1997 in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area and now also operate an Austin branch which serves all of Central Texas. We are the largest pug rescue group in the state of Texas and the second largest pug rescue group in the United States. Since 1997, DFW Pug Rescue Club has rescued and found new forever homes for over 2000 lovable and absolutely adorable pugs.
DFW Pug Rescue Club is funded entirely by private donations, memberships, newsletter subscriptions, fundraising events and adoption fees. 100% of the money we collect goes to pay for the considerable veterinary bills of the pugs we rescue.
Adopting From Us
The first step toward adoption through DFW Pug Rescue Club is to submit an Adoption Application. Our adoption fee is $175.00. All rescued pugs are given a thorough examination by our Veterinarians, brought up-to-date on all immunizations and vaccinations, spayed/neutered if not already, tested (and treated when positive) for heartworm and treated for any life-threatening or chronic conditions. In order to keep our adoption fee as low as possible, we generally do not include teeth cleaning or dental extractions, nasal surgery, allergy testing, eyelid surgery or other common pug ailments unless they are life threatening or absolutely necessary for the dog's well-being. DFW Pug Rescue Club, Inc. rescues all pugs regardless of age of physical condition. Please understand that while all of our pugs are lovable and adorable, we rarely get ones that live up to rigorous breed standards. We rescue approximately 8 male pugs for every female and the great majority of them are adult fawns. We rarely get puppies but as we like to say, if you've never been loved by a rescued adult pug, then you've never really been loved at all. Please note that DFW Pug Rescue Club does not ship pugs. Because we're run by volunteers, we try to adopt our pugs out to families in the general area where they are being fostered.

Come Visit Us!
DFW Pug Rescue Club does not operate a shelter nor do we conduct adoption days. All of our dogs live in foster homes until they are adopted. Under foster care, we are able to evaluate our dogs in order to find just the right home for each of them. If you are interested in adopting a pug from us, we recommend that you submit an adoption application in advance. We usually have a waiting list.
