We understand there are many reasons why people cannot always keep
their pets. We appreciate that they look to rescue for help. We work
with the families surrendering the pug to ensure that it is really
their decision, without any pressure from anyone in our rescue. If you
want to keep in touch with the new adoptive family, we will do all we
can to make this happen to aide in your healing process.
You will be required to complete and sign a Surrender Form, stating
all known information about the pug, including medical records (if
available), habits, etc. This form will also serve as your legal
agreement to permanently relinquish ownership of the pug.
All pugs that come into Green Mountain Pug Rescue are vet checked,
spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical conditions
before the adoption process begins.
Information that can be provided at the time of surrender is extremely
important in the adoption process in order to help make a good match
for the pug's forever home.
Green Mountain Pug Rescue also takes in stray pugs and makes every
attempt to find their owner. If you have found a stray pug and want to
surrender it to GMPR, you will be asked to complete a Surrender Form,
stating details about the pug you found. Then we will work with you to
find the closest Town Dog Officer and place the pug with them for the
10 day hold. We will tell the Dog Control Officer that we want the pug
if no one claims the pug. True strays are uncommon in Vermont for
pugs. If you do find a pug, chances are the owners are looking for
their pug. :)
Surrendered pugs are cared for in foster care in the private homes of
GMPR volunteers. All pugs stay in foster care until a suitable home is
found. We always have a waiting list for people looking for a pug, so
placement will be an easy one. While in foster care, the pug is
evaluated for behavior and any potential troubles.
If you have a pug that you wish to relinquish to Green Mountain Pug
Rescue for any reason, please fill out the following form
as the first step in the process. Once we have received this form we
will be in touch to set up a time and place for picking up of the
precious pug. If you have any questions regarding this process, please
Green Mountain Pug Rescue understands how difficult it is to give up a
family pet. The detailed information you provide here will help us to
place your dog in the best home possible.
