Be the change for abandoned pugs.

Every day at Pug Nation Rescue LA, we work to rescue abandoned, neglected, unwanted, displaced, and abused pugs, and give them a second chance. Our goal is to provide every Pug a loving and caring forever home. If we cannot do that, we pledge to provide a comfortable and loving place for sick or unwanted pugs to live out their lives. We are all volunteers who donate our time to make a difference in the pug world. You too can help us in our mission: donate or adopt and save a pug in need today.

Puggita 10 years old, Available.
This 10 year old female fawn pug who is a major rough and tumble girl! She was originally turned into us in March 2013, then adopted four months later but returned June, 2014 due to increased fighting with her adopter's other dogs. She is a smoocher when it comes to people, but she really does need to go to an ONLY dog home.
