A BIG THANK YOU & PUG HUGS TO ERIN CHRISTIANSEN WHO MADE IT HAPPEN JUST LIKE
"ERIN SAID IT WOULD!"
Hug a Pug AZ Rescue & Adoption Group is a not for profit animal rescue organization committed to the rescue of pugs and pug mix dogs in Southern Arizona that have somehow become homeless. These pugs arrive at our rescue in several ways; via owner surrender, from picking up strays on the street, from other rescues or animal control facilities, or from PACC (Pima County Animal Control Center). After being taken in to rescue, we place the dog in a qualified foster home with one of our volunteers until they are adopted. We provide veterinary care, love, safety, and food. By rescuing these dogs, we prevent unnecessary euthanasia and give them a chance to live out their natural lives. Most of the pugs we rescue have behavioral or medical issues, and we observe them to get to know their demeanor, quirks, and personality to find out what type of home they are best suited for. Our team is dedicated to finding a forever home for every homeless or abandoned pug.

Hug A Pug AZ
to acquire 501(c)3 nonprofit status!
We just got some exciting news from a local foundation who has offered their expertise and legal services (pro-bono) to help our struggling rescue correctly prepare and file the documents required to obtain 501(c)3 status with the IRS! This is great news because we have a sky high veterinarian bill and more pugs are coming in every day; they need to eat! Our volunteers are awesome, and out of the goodness of their hearts and their love of pugs they do their best to help, but this tax-exempt status will be a true blessing for us. Until now, we have not been able to afford to move forward with the procedure. Check back here for more updates on our progress!
