The El Paso Pug Rescue needs more foster homes after a large number of pugs and other brachycephalic, aka flat-faced, dog breeds have come into the rescue. The El Paso Pug Rescue is a locally run, foster-based, 501 (c) nonprofit group that works to help “homeless, mistreated, neglected, and unwanted pugs.” El Paso Paso Pug Rescue works to help not only pugs but English bulldogs, French Bulldog, Boston Terrier, Pekinese, English Bulldog and more. The rescue doesn't discriminate against age, health or behavior and works to take in as many dogs in need as they can.

Currently, the El Paso Pug Rescue is in need of new foster homes for their adoptable pugs. These dogs all want to find a loving fur-ever family but just need to be given a chance. Fostering is a wonderful opportunity for someone who wants to see if they're ready for an additional member of the family. This also allows people to get to know different dogs and their various personalities. After all the pugs I've had come through my home, I can guarantee you that every pug is different! But they are all wonderful in their own way and allowed me to see what kind of home they would do best in.

If you are interested in becoming a foster family for an El Paso Rescue Pug, please visit the website and click the "How To Foster" tab at the top of the screen. Fill out the Foster Application and email that and a copy of your driver's license or state ID to The foster application process requires a background check and a home inspection to make sure our pugs are in a safe and loving environment.
