Pug Rescue of Florida rescues pugs and pug mixes throughout Florida and Georgia. We rely on the support of loving foster homes to help the pugs in need. All PROoF pugs stay with foster families until they find their forever homes. Our foster care program allows us to learn more about our dogs, address their medical needs, and enables us to make better long-term matches for both our adopters and our dogs.
What does it mean to foster? It means that you open your heart and your home to a rescue pug. You treat them as if they were your own and give them lots of good food, exercise, and attention. You might have to take your foster pug to vet appointments (PROoF pays for the pre-approved medical care at our approved vet offices). You may also have to work on house training, social skills, or behavior issues. You get to know all about your foster pug therefore you are also involved with screening applicants, taking the pug to events, and meeting potential adopters.
We understand and appreciate that fostering it is a very special commitment for families. It takes time, energy, patience, a LOT of love! Our rescued pugs have often experienced many changes in their lives and our foster families help prepare them for one final change – settling in with a wonderful forever family. We know fostering is a very important job but don’t worry, we will be there to support you every step of the way.
We have several types of foster home needs:
Foster Locations: In order to provide excellent care for our foster pugs, we have established working relationships with several vets in Florida and Georgia.
PLEASE NOTE: To apply to foster you MUST be located near one of our approved vets and be willing and able to get your foster pug to the vet when needed. We may add more locations at a later time but for now:
PLEASE DO NOT APPLY to foster if you are not located in one of the following areas.
