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.

  • Puffy Finds Love

    Posted on December 6, 2018 by in 2018

    Puffy is such a light in our house! Puffy joined our family in March 2017. The greatest reward has been watching Puffy’s confidence and happiness grow. We love her as if she has been ours for 10 years, not just 1 1/2 years. Thank you NIPRA for entrusting us in Puffy’s care! – Puffy’s (NIPRA […]

  • Rest in Peace Sweet Eloise

    Posted on August 24, 2018 by in 2018

    I adopted Eloise in December of 2010 … four months after I had lost my first pug, “Pup”, who I had had for 14 years. The last few years of Pup’s life were filled with many challenges, as he had developed many special needs. I used to work at my local humane society and I […]

    It’s almost been a year since we adopted Cooper and Einstein but it feels like they’ve always been part of our family. We met Cooper and Einstein at Pug Jam last year – they captured our hearts right away. Adopting a bonded pair has been an amazing experience. Cooper and Einstein have been together since […]

  • Milo

    Posted on December 29, 2016 by in 2016

    We got Milo in April of 2016. He has adjusted well and is attached at the hip of my son Jack (10) and me. He loves his 4 walks a day and gives out his big “ruru” chant each time. We are trying to fill him up with lower calorie food so he doesn’t end […]

  • Rex

    Posted on December 7, 2016 by in 2016

    It’s been quite awhile since we sent an update on Rex. We rescued Rex on June 16, 2013. Rex and Bear, our other pug, have their days still but over all they love each other. Rex is a great joy to our family. Rex loves people but not other dogs. We modified our fence twice […]

  • Gutz

    Posted on November 29, 2016 by in 2016

    I have had Gutz (formerly Rascal) for almost a year now and I honestly do not know where I would be without him. After about 2 months being in a new home and having that empty feeling, I decided I needed a companion. I decided to fill out an application for no dog in particular […]

    Posted on October 29, 2016 by in 2016

    We always wanted to adopt another pug for Guinness to have a friend. We had started looking and found Louis from NIPRA’s Facebook page. Although it was a transition, we are so happy to have Louis as a part of our family. He is the complete opposite of Guinness. Guinness loves to run and play, […]

  • Sweet Pea

    Posted on September 29, 2016 by in 2016

    A day in the life of Sweet Pea is filled with energy, spunk, and taking rule over the entire household. From the moment she entered into our family, six months ago, she captured our hearts with her electric sounding bark and playful demeanor. Between her daily walks/runs to backyard/indoor fetch she is a constant fur […]
