All dogs – NSW branch of the RSPCA. All dogs – Good resource and club for NSW pug owners. Established since ’49 – Good rescue organisation for Newcastle and Surrounds. All Dogs

Our Supporters

We would like to thank all our old and new sponsors that have made PugRescue.Com.Au what it is today

Without the support we would never had rehomed over 50 pugs in 2013. We plan on rehoming many more in 2014

Other Pug Rescue groups in states around Australia are doing a fantastic job in their areas. We like to give a shout out to – Pug Rescue and Adoption VIC – Pug SOS – Central Coast Pug Rescue. Doing a great job up there
