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.

    We adopted Trump (formerly Abby) shortly after losing one of our six pugs to old age and illness. Trump brought new joy to my family and to the rest of the pack. She is well behaved, intelligent, and the easiest dog we could have hoped to adopt. Originally weighing 27 pounds when entering the rescue, […]

    Bubba was spotted at a pet event this summer. We were instantly drawn to his happy, go lucky personality and his irresistible tooth! We adopted him weeks later and brought him home on a rainy Thursday evening. He has taken over our hearts ever since. Bubba can make anyone feel happy and makes you instantly […]

    I’m writing to give you an update and to thank you for our wonderful little Natalie (aka Natty), adopted February 2009. She’s made an effortless transition into our family and our hearts, and we are just delighted to have her. She is a special little girl! She’s been gradually adjusting and changing, but in the […]

    We have had Olive a bit over a month now.  She is doing really well.  She sleeps through the night (between my husband and I, of course).  She understands our routine and is very put out if her walk or dinner is a bit late.  We are feeding all three dogs upstairs now in different […]

    We heard about NIPRA from one of my husband’s co-workers at a point when we were ready to welcome a new canine companion into our family. After seven wonderful years with us, our beloved, adopted golden retriever had passed away from cancer and we missed him terribly. We saw Jack on the website and applied […]

    Emmy Lou. a two-year-old fawn female, came to NIPRA as an owner surrender.  Her family could no longer take care of her, and so she was placed in a foster home and put on the “adoptable Pugs” list. We spotted her picture and immediately fell in love with her.  When we inquired about her availability, […]

    My name is Karyn and my daughter Danielle and I adopted two pugs from NIPRA a few months ago.  Their names are Herbie and Libby Lu.  I heard about the rescue while atwork as a Registered Nurse.  A medical student at the hospital said she knew of someone who was fostering two Pugs and looking […]

    My name is Emily and I adopted Ernie on August 5, 2011 within hours of the home visit.  I brought Ernie home and my black lab, Que, eagerly greeted him.  I think Ernie was a little scared and unsure.  He walked all around the house and would lightly bump into a wall until he had the […]

    We were first introduced to NIPRA back in December 2006 when we decided that we would like to adopt a pug. We searched on line to seek our adoption options and filled out applications through a few organizations, none of which responded to our inquiry but NIPRA. Before we knew it, a 14-month-old fawn pug […]
