About Bluegrass Pug Rescue, Inc.

Bluegrass Pug Rescue, Inc., (BPR) is a community based, statewide nonprofit 501(c)3 organization with a mission of  rescuing Pugs.  We are totally supported by donations, proceeds from events and through the work of our volunteers. BPR does not have a facility where Pugs can be seen. All Pugs are placed into loving foster homes until their forever home is found.  Available Pugs and a brief bio can be viewed here


BPR receives Pugs needing homes from various situations. BPR takes in Pugs found as strays, dropped off at shelters, left at groomers or vets, or where a change in family situations has caused the family to no longer be able to provide a home for their Pug.  Once in rescue, the Pug is placed with a foster home and taken to the vet for vaccinations, a heartworm test, spay or neuter and any needed medical treatment. All known medical conditions will be disclosed prior to adoption.


There are many other duties, such as outreach, fundraising, and administrative tasks that need to be done. Our volunteers have jobs, families, and pets of their own that they need to tend to, as well as perform the work for BPR.  We ask for your patience and understanding in having to wait to be contacted. We assure you, the wait will be worth it!
