Foster Parents Needed

The pugs are coming in fast and furious, and we don't want to turn down any pug in need. We need your help. If you have adopted from APARN in the last two years, you are likely already approved to foster.

Click "more" below to fill out an online application if you are able to take in a foster pug. Even if you just help one pug and decide fostering isn't for you, you would still be making a huge difference!

Pug Rescue

If you know of a Pug in a shelter or elsewhere that needs adopting please contact us by phone at (480) 964-3126 or send an email to

If you are in a situation where you have to give up your pet, please do not feel bad. Ultimately we care about the Pug’s happiness and if for any reason you are unable to care for your Pug we are here to help by placing it into a new home. Realizing you cannot keep your pet is a hard decision and we are here to support you, not to judge you.
