Change a pugs life.

We are Pug Refuge, a charity based in Wellington. Our mission is to give abandoned pugs a second chance in life. Our first priority is the well-being and safety of pugs that are in (and out of) our care. We are a no-kill shelter. Pugs who are unable to find a home have permanent refuge here with us and will have their medical, basic and emotional needs met. With your support, we can make this happen for every pug in need.

Make a difference

Change a life.
