The Rescue Club
DFW Pug Rescue Club, Inc., (DFWPRC) was founded in early 1996 and incorporated in July 1997 as a charitable, non-profit corporation for the rescue, care, and placement of unwanted, mistreated, or homeless pugs.
DFW Pug Rescue Club, Inc. is a non-profit corporation with Federal Tax Exemption as a public charity under Section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Founded in 1996, DFWPRC is one of the largest pug rescue organizations in the United States and has rescued and placed thousands of adorable pugs.
We rescue ALL PUREBRED pugs regardless of age or medical condition. Since we rescued all those pugs, our veterinary care is our biggest ongoing expense. At least 94% of our annual expenses are used to pay for veterinary care. The majority of our pugs are re-homed due to military deployment, death, divorce, relocation, new baby, marriage, travel, and estate placements.
All pugs rescued by DFWPRC, are taken immediately to the vet where they are examined, vaccinated, sterilized, receive rabies shots, dental care (if needed), tested and treated for heartworms. All completed before being placed in a foster or permanent home.
Approximately thirty-five percent (35%) of the rescue pugs are heartworm positive and all are treated at DFWPRC’s expense. We are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization and do not have a staging area to hold our rescue pugs. We depend on the generosity of our volunteers to provide foster homes until permanent homes can be located. We rescue more males than females (10 to 1), more fawns than blacks (40 to 1), and the average age of our rescue pugs is 4-years old. The average life span of a pug is between 14 – 17 years.
All pugs must be picked up in Dallas/Fort Worth by their new families — no pugs are shipped.
No Pug Left Behind.
DFWPRC is not affiliated or sponsored by any national or local breed clubs.
