Furever Fosters

On occasion, some of our pugs come into the rescue with terminal illness, constant medical needs or have special emotional needs. These dogs are considered unadoptable, yet they are still able to live with a good quality of life. For these dogs, our foster families commit to a lifetime of love and care for the time they have left, and Pacific Pug Rescue provides food, supplies and medical treatment for each dog in the Furever Foster program. Our only funding for this program comes from donations and sponsorships. We rely heavily on our supporters to help us continue to help these sweet seniors live a full, happy comfortable life.

We appreciate your consideration of sponsoring these sweet seniors. For sponsors who choose no end date or those choose to sponsor for at least three months, we are happy to add your name to our list of sponsors. For business or corporate sponsorships, please email us directly at fureverfosters@pacificpugrescue.org so we can appropriately acknowledge your support!

16 year old Trinity or Grandma as she is lovingly called, was surrendered to us from a shelter on the Southern Coast, she was brought in from a hoarding situation in very poor condition. Trinity has limited use of her back legs, and is incontinent. Trinity has severe and almost constant UTI's that are very hard to treat. She wins over the hearts of everyone she meets with her sweet and spicy personality. You can follow Grandma's adventure on IG @grandmaisalove.


15 year old Samson came to us from a local shelter after being found as a stray. His health issues were numerous and it seemed Samson had never had any vet care in his life. He was not neutered, and had serious issues with his ears, eyes and skin and there were signs on xray of prior physical abuse. Samson has been with us for over a year and surprised everyone with his turnaround. He loves having a yard to wander around in and a family that loves him.


11 year old Kona came to us when he lost the use of his back legs due to pug myelopathy and his owners could not care for him. We purchased Kona a wheelchair and have got him set up in a wonderful furever foster home. Kona is so sweet and happy go lucky. He is polite and always alerts to when he needs to do his business. When he really wants something he uses his sweet sing-song howl. He is such a cuddle bug, he adores snuggling up on the couch. Cuddles are his favorite followed by begging for people food. He loves going on walks on the trail where he can smell all the new smells. Just like a good pug he LOVES to be near you and would follow you from room to room if he could. He is everything wonderful about pugs. He can't use his back legs but lately he has been standing on 3 legs! When we come home he will greet us by standing on 3 :) we have been doing some exercises with him to keep his hind legs and muscles intact. He is sweet with new people and adores his human sister (especially when she drops her snacks). He pulls himself around on the carpet indoors but is in his wheelchair in the yard and on walks. If you would like to follow Kona's adventures, he is on instagram @pugpartyof3


10 year old Aslan came into rescue in December of 2016. He was immediately rushed to the Emergency Vet and found to be in DKA (Diabetic KetoAcidosis) His prognosis was grim, but we decided to throw everything we had to save him. Because of generous donors, great vet care, and his will to live, he survived. However since then it has not been an easy road. His diabetes has proven to be very hard to control. When he came in one of his eyes was ruptured and the other had a very large Ulcer. While they have finally healed, he now suffers from complete blindness caused by diabetic induced cataracts. He developed Glaucoma in one of his eyes, and if that wasn't enough, he also was diagnosed with a Mast Cell tumor. Aslan struggled to adjust to his blindness, but with a lot of patience and guidance, he now gets around just fine. He is a very happy boy that loves to go for walks, play with stuffed toys, snuggle and hang out with the other dogs in the house. Because of Aslan's costly care, and his reliance on his foster mom, he will stay in the loving care of the rescue to make sure he gets the care he needs.


10 year old Roxy came to us when her back leg issues became more than the owner wanted to deal with. She is a very patient and happy go lucky pug. Her challenges don't get her down, it doesn't matter what you are doing to her....changing her shoes to expressing her bladder, she is cooperative and content. She lives with another pug and 3 cats and gets along with all. Like all pugs Roxy loves her people, she is very cuddly and never wants anyone to leave! When she meets new people, she will bark at them while wagging her tail and then promptly sit down on their shoes. Roxy has limited use of her back legs and has some issues with incontinence, she is living in a wonderful foster home that is making sure she gets the best of care!
