Adoption Fee Schedule (Effective 12/1/2017):

Pugs under 1 Year Old:  $400 + 6% Kentucky Sales Tax (effective 7/1/18) - $424

Pugs 10 Years Old and Over:  $150 + 6% Kentucky Sales Tax (effective 7/1/18) - $159

Please Note:

  • Our expenses average 4 times the amount of the adoption fee per dog - meaning we have to generate $3.00 in donations for every $1.00 in adoption fees.

  • We are an all-volunteer organization that functions only on the money we raise through donations and adoption fees - we only spend the money we raise in a responsible manner to help the Pugs.

  • We often don't know exactly how old the Pugs are. We use our Vet's expert opinion to determine approximate age in these scenarios.

  • It will be your responsibility to travel to pick up your Pug. Transport assistance may be arranged if resources are available.

  • Please understand that we sometimes have a waiting list of applicants. We compare incoming Pugs to the needs of already approved adopters on our waiting list and offer incoming Pugs to those adopters first. Even if there isn't a Pug that is perfect for your now, we encourage you to complete an application so you'll be approved and ready to go when the "perfect pug" comes along.
