Our Purpose

The purpose of Pug Rescue South Africa is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Pugs in need, irrespective of their age, breed standard or health.

We also offer sanctuary to Pugs who are not adopted and to the many aged Pugs in our care.

We rescue in excess of 240 Pugs a year.

Honourary Pugs

Pug Rescue SA is a safe haven for on average 165 rescues on any given day.

When capacity allows we also accommodate non-Pugs and we refer to them as honouary-Pugs.

At least 10% of our rescued animals have honourary-Pug status.

Safe Haven

We do not euthanize animals if they cannot find homes, we do euthanize if medically there is nothing more we can do to offer them a quality life.

Our policy is “the right to a quality life”

Our Sanctuary

Our sanctuary is based in Benoni. Gauteng, albeit we rescue throughout South Africa. In other regions we make use of foster homes. If the Pugs do not find homes in the various regions we then transport them to the sanctuary in Benoni.

Home

Rehoming

Our rescues receive an extremely high standard of care at our sanctuary which affords them a home-from-home experience.

Our rehoming criteria is also extremely strict. We do not believe in “there is a home, here is a dog”, we rehome ” the right Pug to the right home ” and we have an extremely low return rate.

Welcome to Pug Rescue South Africa

We are not a first-come-first-serve rescue organisation.

We are here to find forever, wonderful homes for the rescues in our care.

Our Rescues

Our rescues eat nutritional vet quality food twice a day and sleep in clean, warm and comfortable beds in either what we refer to as the townhouse section or the cottages.

how we started

Pug Rescue SA started by default in 2008 when we heard of a stray Pug in need. Despite his owners being located, they never claimed him.

Pug Rescue SA is a Registered Section 21 Non-profit Company 2010/008170/08 and we are registered as a Public Benefit Organisation PBO No.: 930035784

Outreach

Pug Rescue SA also conducts an animal outreach programme in the Chris Hani/Gabon and surrounding Informal Settlements in Daveyton in Benoni. 

Outreach: Thanda Inja (love dog)

Our outreach project is called Thanda Inja (love dog) and is run separate to Pug Rescue SA with its own registration and banking account.

The focus of The Thanda Inja Project is to take veterinary care into an area that does not have access to vet care or the means to pay for veterinary care. 

The Thanda Inja Project has its own registration and website.
