Relinquishment & Surrendering

Surrender Information Form

If you need to surrender a Pug, you must complete this form. You will be contacted by a volunteer as soon as possible. Please understand that we will not refuse assistance to any needy Pug, but it is essential that you provide complete, detailed and accurate information so that we can match the Pug with the most appropriate foster home.

If you have found a lost/stray Pug:

Please contact your local animal shelters and veterinarians offices prior to contacting Ohio 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 microchipped and reunite it with its owner. We will happily accept found Pugs once preliminary efforts to find the owner have failed.

By selecting Agree below, you signify that you have provided true information and that you understand the following:

A current photo of your Pug is required before we will proceed with your request.

Prior to accepting your Pug in rescue, you will be asked to provide vet records showing date of last vaccinations, any health issues, and proof of spay/neuter (if you have stated above that the Pug is spayed or neutered). Please obtain a copy of these records from your vet prior to arrangements being made to bring your Pug into rescue.

Ohio Pug Rescue is staffed exclusively by volunteers, most of whom have other full time jobs. Every effort is made to contact you regarding your request for surrender and to transition Pugs into foster care as quickly as possible but we ask your patience and flexibility as we work to make suitable arrangements for your Pug.

Please keep in mind that we use Volunteer Foster Homes for the pugs and how quickly placement into rescue takes place is based on availability of an open Foster Home at the time of your request.

In order to minimize the impact of the transition on the Pug, we ask you to surrender all the Pug's belongings (bedding, toys, crate, leash, food, medicines, food, etc.). Vet records are also essential in ensuring that the Pug receives proper medical care.

Please be aware that upon surrendering the Pug, you must complete and sign a surrender form granting the Ohio Pug Rescue legal ownership of the Pug. Once a Pug is surrendered to the Ohio Pug Rescue, it cannot be returned.

OPR does not adopt outside of the state of Ohio, no exceptions. If you live outside Ohio and wish to adopt a Pug, please refer to your local Pug rescue.
