Lost Pugs - Please Help!

**If you have found a lost/stray pug**:

Please contact your local animal shelters and veterinarians offices prior to contacting 

MN Midwest Pug Rescue. 

Quite often, owners of lost pets have contacted these agencies looking for their pets. 

Additionally, shelters and veterinarians can scan the pet to see if it is micro chipped and 

reunite it with its owner. 

Due to many city ordinances and laws the pug must be at the local shelter for a specified number

of days before the rescue can step in and take the dog. Please consider taking the dog to the local shelter instead of your home so 

that the process of either finding the owner or getting the pug into rescue can be expedited. 

As a rescue we work with many of the shelters and may be able to pull the pug from the shelter after the initial hold period.


Minnesota Pug Rescue began saving its first pugs in 2006. Since then 567 pugs have received vet healthcare, safety in a foster home, and placed into loving homes through MN Midwest Pug Rescue. Thank you to all who've been part of this journey!
