Pug Rescue of Florida rescues pugs and pug mixes across the state of Florida. 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 medical care at our approved vet offices) and administer medications. 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.
