Get Involved

Many people ask, “what can I do to help?” Our rescue could not exist if it were not for our donors, volunteers, adopters, and fosters. So many people have come together to help our Pugs and so that we can continue to successfully place our rescues in loving forever homes.

It is a reality, however, that everyone only has so much to give. Some people have more time than money, and some have neither, but may have an expertise in something that could help our pugs. So, below we have listed many ways for anyone to help our pugs, no matter what you level of contribution may be. We have ways for everyone to comfortably contribute what they can!


Please note:  you must be 16 years or older in order to volunteer.

GoodSearch, GoodDining, GoodShop, & GoodPlay


Did you know you can help raise money for Pug Nation simply by searching the internet? is a FREE search engine that donates a penny to your designated charity each time you use their search engine.

All you have to do is go to We recommend setting it as your home page so it is at your fingertips when you need it. Click on the “choose a cause” link and type in Pug Nation. You are now all set to start searching so Pug Nation will receive donations. And the best part? It doesn’t cost you anything! But, wait! It gets better! Please read on…


Goodsearch also offers a way for you to raise money for your favorite charity just by dining at your favorite restaurants. All you have to do is register your bank cards with them. Each time you use your card at a participating restaurant, the restaurant makes a donation, usually a small percentage of what you spend. We appreciate every little bit, because it ALL adds up! You can find this link toward the top of the Goodsearch page, under the link “more ways to raise.” Or, you can click here to register your cards and view participating restaurants.


We just can’t stop raving about the wonderful ways Goodsearch can help us raise money. Goodsearch also offers a way to donate just by shopping online. There are so many stores that participate in the GoodShop program, we cannot list them all here. Many of the major ones participate, such as, 1-800-Flowers, Orbitz, iTunes, Petsmart, Priceline, and so many others where you regularly shop online anyway. Click here for a list of participating merchants!

We recommend downloading the GoodApp to run in the background so it will track your purchase and make the donation automatically. Instead of linking to the store through Goodsearch’s website, you can download GoodApp. It is a non-intrusive app that knows when you have made a purchase through a participating merchant. One more way you can do practically nothing to make donations!


GoodGames is one more way you can donate, but certainly not the last! GoodGames offers online games you can play that will help us raise money. Yes, just by playing their games, GoodGames will donate a penny for every three games you play. If you play online games anyway, raise while you play! No need to feel guilty; playing games with GoodGames is 100% charity work!
