Featured Adoptable Pugs: Sadie and Simba

Niko and Bella

Meet Sadie (red colored harness) and Simba (black colored harness). Sadie (8) and Simba (9) came into the rescue after their owners got divorced. They both spent a little more time with their mom but due to very long work hours, she felt that she was unable to give them the time and love they truly deserve. She felt that they needed a full time home with somebody that can spend time playing and loving them, so they are now looking for a new forever home.

Hear What the Pugs are Saying

The day my forever family signed my papers to adopt me was the best day of my life! Every day continues to get better and I even help support my new mommy as her registered support dog.

Gutz (formerly Rascal)

My forever family says they don't know what they would do without me. Now that I have my new family I am full of energy and spunk. I rule this household and thank NIPRA for finding my forever home.

Sweet Pea

From the day they saw me, I took over my forever family's hearts. Since NIPRA has helped me find my forever home, I am loving life and wake up everyday ready to enjoy it.
