the pug medically needs to be adopted. We do use vets that discount
for us, but that discount is not very much. Your adoption donation
helps offset the vet bills a little and we thank you for that. All
dogs WILL be altered prior to their adoption, even puppies will stay
in GMPR foster care till altered before being adopted out.
Any pure breed that is bred to create
a "designer breed" for example- puggles, Chugs, Jugs, etc- as of March

adoption fee is $150.00.
The adoption fee for Bonded Pairs will be based on the age
of the older pug.
Adoption fees are to be paid in cash, Money Order or Bank
Check. No personal checks are allowed.
The purpose of Pug Adoption is to provide a healthy, happy, home for
the lifetime of the pug. It is not to provide a low-cost pet. We see
adoption as a privilege that families are selected for based on
individual merit, not on a first come basis. The adoption fees are
used towards support of the pugs. Money is used for vet bills,
medicine, food, toys, and other supplies. Absolutely NO money is paid
to volunteers for salaries or mileage. Extra funds are used for rescue
efforts. All applicants must be legal adults with a means of
supporting a pet PLUS any unexpected medical issues. Stability is very
important. Many pugs will have one thing or another happen during
their lifetime that requires some form of attention. The needs of the
pug are most important. Pugs need stable homes quickly. Pugs need to
settle in to a home and not to bounce from foster to foster. They need
affection and tender loving care. GMPR requires a home visit on every
applicant - no exceptions..
GMPR can not guarantee that a pug will be housebroken. Any time an
animal enters a new environment it needs to learn where to go potty.
It is like any of us entering a place and not knowing where the
bathroom is, except pugs can't ask! GMPR cannot make any guarantee of
a pug's age. Pugs will not be placed into home with animals that are
not altered (unless due to age restrictions). You should care enough
about altering as to spay or neuter your animals before applying for
adoption. Pugs can not be shipped. Home visits provide a good channel
to ask questions. Feedback is used to help indicate a "best fit" for
each individual pug. Before applying for adoption, please
understand what the purpose of adoption is and is not.
Misunderstanding can cause delays in finding the right home for a pug
If you can not comprehend the purpose of adoption, it may not be for
you. There are many families that want to open their homes to a pug
that needs a "Forever Home". Please respect the needs of pugs by
submitting only serious applications. Adoption saves lives! "
