Pug Patrol Rescue Australia (PPRA) are a diverse team – from all walks of life and all ages. Some have businesses, families and others are young professionals. One important quality we all share is a deep love and passion for animal welfare. There is a fire in our bellies to be the voice for the voiceless. It is this fire that enables us to make the tireless and often thankless commitment to rescuing pugs from often unimaginable horrors and give them a second chance at the life they deserve.
PPRA was established in early 2017, with the founding team have worked together in pug rescue for many years prior. PPRA have dedicated teams in NSW including ACT, South Australia and South East QLD.
PPRA also focuses on educating the general public about the reality of breeding exploitation. We have brought together an experienced team of foster carers, veterinarians and administrators who are committed to providing the best care for their rescues. This is a costly endeavour both financially and emotionally.
A lot of the rescues that come into care are from puppy farms and backyard breeders who have exploited them for profit. These pugs usually suffer in small filthy cages their entire lives, often without adequate food, water, veterinary care or even the human affection they crave the most. Walking into these situations can be dangerous and very confronting, but we do what needs to be done to ensure the safe rescue of the pugs in need. The initial heartbreak quickly turns into a special bond with these rescues who get to experience vet care, a warm bed, nutritious food and being a part of a loving family for the first time.
