Due to the COVID -19 pandemic, we are not accepting new foster homes at this time. A home visit is a requirement prior to becoming a foster and due to social distancing requirements, it is not safe to do so at this time. Thank you for understanding.

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.
