Our Process

Pug Rescue of Northwest Arkansas, Inc. appreciates your interest in adopting a pug in need of a home. Submitting an application starts the process. The application assists the Rescue in knowing information about potential adopters. Because this Rescue is foster based, there is no centrally located shelter where the pugs are housed. They are placed in foster homes throughout the Northwest Arkansas area. The pugs are in different locations so the Rescue is not able to answer questions about the dogs or put you in contact with the foster parents until the application is received, processed and approved.


If you have adopted from this Rescue and it has been over 3 years since your application, you will be required to submit a new one. Rescues and shelters share common goals, but are very different in many ways including administration, resources, and ideologies. The Rescue is never under pressure to adopt dogs quickly in order to free kennel space.


After your application is approved the Rescue will begin a dialogue with you in an effort to determine if a rescue pug can be matched to your family.
