The foster family plays a critical role in the success of a pug rescue. For every foster home we gain, another pug can be saved. PPR does not have a physical shelter so we depend on people opening their homes and their hearts to pugs in need.
Pugs come into rescue for a variety of reasons and from a variety of places and in some cases the foster home is the first stable environment the pug has ever been in. The pugs will go through a transition period as they adjust to their new life. It is an amazing feeling to see a shy/timid/nervous pug “come to life” while in your care!
A foster family provides a stable, loving and nurturing temporary home for our pugs while they await their forever family. You will provide your foster with necessary trips to veterinary appointments, work on basic training, evaluate your foster pugs personality, provide pictures and a bio for website, assist in picking their forever family, and provide lots of love. PPR is here every step of the way to help you!
PPR pays for all veterinary care for your foster which includes vaccinations, microchip, heartworm testing and prevention, and any surgeries they may need. If you should get a foster that needs special prescription food PPR would pay for that also.
The foster home is responsible for paying for the dogs food (unless prescription) and providing the dog a collar, harness and leash. If the rescue happens to have any donated collars, harnesses and leashes they will gladly be provided to you.
Fostering isn’t for everyone and it is work but it is the most gratifying work you will probably ever do!
