P.U.G.S. is committed to finding the best homes for the animals in its care. We spend a lot of time making sure that when an animal is adopted it is a good match for both the new owner and the animal. We require a home visit prior to adoption and references. We do not follow a first come first serve process. We make follow-up visits too, and provide counseling to new adopters.
A long-term committment such as pet adoption is not one that we feel should be made hastily and without thought. Animals bond to new owners quickly and it is sad for everyone if an animal must be returned. Sometimes, however, a new P.U.G.S. owner finds that the animal after all is not a good match, or there is some life change that makes it hard to give the animal proper care. P.U.G.S. policy is that any of its dogs can be returned at any time, no matter how long after the adoption. Companions can not be given to a shelter, nor given as "gifts". We ask all adopters to join either our Meet-Up page or Facebook page.
Once i receive the application I call references,then I schedule a home visit to go over the application and to inform the prospected owner(s) the care the pug will need.Then they will be put on approved list and when a pug comes in and it wil be the perfect pug for the owner we will start the adoption process.
