Our Mission as a non-profit organization serving
the Southwest Pennsylvania area is to rescue
older, disabled and special needs pugs that
require ongoing special care and/or medical
treatment from shelters where these particular
pugs are scheduled to be euthanized and
considered unadoptable to the general public,
where we will be dedicated to providing
appropriate medical treatment and placing them
into a nurturing environment, utilizing temporary
foster homes, while awaiting adoption into loving
forever homes.

Our Mission

Parker & Tuesday
Each pug will be evaluated on a case by case basis as to the severity of their
particular need or disability along with any ongoing medical treatment considered,
restoring their health whenever possible, or if only corrective surgery is needed,  
whether they will be placed permanently in a foster home where we will be
dedicated to providing medical treatment and long-term care for these pugs for the
remaining days of their lives, or be put up for adoption to find them an appropriate
loving forever home.  
Southwest PA Pugs with Special Needs is a not-for-profit, no-kill, last chance rescue

Help needed for our rescues
2012 has been a tough financial year for our rescue.  Poor Noel had surgery
to have her epiglotis trimmed due to her having more labored breathing.  
The vet said her epiglotis was so long it obstructed part of her esophagus
which was why she was having such a difficult time.
 Dante recently had a
mass cell removed and is currently recovering.  Miss
Ping has had a number
of issues including her own 2 surgeries over the past few months.
UPDATE
Due to a very generous donation, Noel's, Dante's & Ping's vet bills
have all been paid in full!!
