PugHearts has successfully rescued: 1614 dogs since Feb 2007 and 114 dogs are currently available.
PugHearts of Houston Pug Rescue is a true 501(c)(3) non-profit charity founded in the Houston area by dedicated pug owners and lovers.  Our mission is the rescue, rehabilitation and permanent placement of needy pugs into loving homes.
Pugs on the Bayou 2014 was our most successful annual event to date. We had about 500 people attend the event and raised an amazing $50,000. These funds will allow us to continue to accept, care for and prepare for adoption the 120+ pugs in our care.

The 2014 yearbook contained 243 alumni adopted between September 2013 and September 2014. The numbers in need just keep climbing. Our vet bill this year is on track to top $250,000. Your support and donations are what allow us to accept the sickest, most injured and worst cases without having to worry about if we should or if we can afford to. For that we all thank you.

Stay tuned 2015 looks to be even more exciting than 2014.

RufusPH ID: #977
Rufus is a black male. He is about 7 years old. He is in good health; he is heartworm negative. It appears he has had some sort of accident in his earlier days as he has a partially amputated tail. However that must've been a long time ago as he has no issues with it now. He has been neutered, microchipped and brought current on his vaccinations.

From Rufus' foster: Rufus has been with us for a while and has become a lot more affectionate and comfortable around people, now that he has gotten used to being spoiled. When we first got him he was a bit stand offish, but was still very sweet. He is a very sweet boy and gets along great with our other dogs and is great around our two kids. We have a cat, but I have never seen him interact with her due to that she is older and stays upstairs away from the dogs. He is completely house trained and we never had any issue even when we first brought him into the house. He is comfortable sleeping in his kennel or being out in the house at night. He is a little mischievous like most pugs and you have to be careful that there is nothing out he can eat that he is not supposed to. He doesn't bother shoes or furniture, but hair scrunchies and socks are not safe. He loves to play when you want to play, but is just as happy hanging out by your side or laying on you watching TV. Rufus is a wonderful dog and will make a great addition to any family.

PugHearts of Houston has maintained a Group page on Facebook for the past several years. We encourage past adopters, potential adopters, fosters and all Pug lovers to join us! We love to post and share photos, heartwarming stories and advice on Pugs.

We have always required that potential FB PugHearts Group members submit a request to join our group in an effort to control SPAM and unauthorized posts. Group posts were visible to the public, but only approved group members could post comments or photos.

However, facebook has recently made some changes to their terms of service which made the PugHearts Group an “open” group, allowing anyone to post on our FB page. This resulted in some unfortunate posts which upset many people. It also allows for unauthorized use of images from our Group and opens our members to breaches of their privacy. We have now changed the status of our group back to “Closed” which once again requires any new members to submit a request to join before they can post.

This change does not affect any existing facebook group members in any way.

Cruelty is 24/7/365 - Please HELP!

However, with these new changes our FB Group is now only visible to existing members. None of our posts or images are available to be viewed by anyone not a current member of our Group. This ensures the safety of our members as well as the protection of our content.

To become a member of our FB Group , simply go to our FB Group page and request to join. Our Administrators will take a quick peek at your profile to ensure you are a genuine pug-loving person (and not a SPAM bot) and with one click they will add you as a member. If your FB profile is brand new or you have a very blank profile, they may ask you for additional information to verify you are a genuine requestor. Once you are added you can post and read to your heart’s content. Just remember to play nice and refrain from abusive posts. We want to encourage and educate Pug lovers by making this a welcoming and nurturing environment.

So come on over to our FB Group page and see what’s happening with your fellow Pug lovers!
