Surrender Information

Pug Patrol Rescue Australia (PPRA) understand that the decision to surrender your pug is a difficult one and we aim to make it as simple and straight forward as we can. Our experienced team will assist you in the process of surrendering your pet and provide the guidance and support required to make this as seamless as possible for you.


Information that you provide will remain confidential and your details are not viewed out of context or passed on in any way. Once your pug is in foster care, we will undertake any required veterinary work and begin to get to know them. We will then endeavour to find the best possible home through the applications we receive.


PPRA will take any pug regardless of its history, age or medical requirements.  We also take any other brachycephalic breeds such as Boston Terriers, Bulldogs (French & English) and Pekingese.


PPRA also offer an ‘assisted rehoming’ option if you would prefer limited intervention from us. This would allow you to utilise our social media platforms and leverage the audience to reach out to our rescue community. We would include photos and a blurb about your pug.  Applicants would contact you directly and you would be responsible for screening them and selecting the most suitable for your pug.


Please note, if you would like PPRA to handle the applications and facilitate the rehoming, then we require you to surrender your pug to us beforehand as outlined above.
