A nonprofit animal welfare organization, Pug Nation Rescue of Los Angeles
saves pugs from abuse, neglect, and abandonment through rehabilitation and adoption. Focusing its efforts on stray, rescued, and relinquished pugs in Southern California, the organization takes in several hundred pugs each year at its Pug Station in Torrance. It provides its dogs with necessary veterinary care, as well as love and attention, while working to find each pug a perfect forever home.
In order to adopt a pug from Pug Nation, hopeful pug owners should first attend one of the group’s adoption fairs, which take place at least three times each month. After choosing a new four-legged friend (or friends), prospective pug parents should fill out an application to set up a meeting with a Pug Nation board member, who will conduct a brief interview and review the completed application. Additionally, Pug Nation will schedule a home check for accepted applications to ensure that all rescued pugs will be safe and happy with their new families. Applicants can expect the process to take one to two weeks. The payment of adoption fees helps to provide food, shelter, and veterinary care to the residents of Pug Nation LA.
