We provide ongoing health care and medical care to the pugs who come to our shelter and provide them with the comforts of home, either until they are rehomed or indefinitely. We also provide information about the Pug breed, so that you can make an educated decision about whether adopting a pug is the right decision for both parties.
We spend our donations on basic care and ongoing health care. Basic and health care covers; 2 meals a day, bedding, dog bowls, sanitary supplies,flea and worm treatments and spay/neutering. A large amount of our donations go towards vet visits and medication for our residents who have chronic or serious health concerns.
Before acquiring a dog, intending dog owners should seek advice from experts such as reputable breeders, veterinarians. The ethical issue with pug breeding, is how they are bred to look a certain way despite the health problems caused by their desired ‘cute’ appearance.show more
These serious chronic health problems are commonly breathing related, but they can also have eye problems and cannot give birth naturally. Pug lovers may not be educated about these health concerns, or the involvement of caring for a pug. Pugs may be treated like they are a cute accessory rather than a living being for this reason, and when their vet bills increase the owner may not have the means to support them.show less
