“It is official, I have been the owner of my awesome pug June Bug for one year. Thanks Arizona Pug Adoption and Rescue Network for all the wonderful work that you do for all of the amazing pugs! Thanks Pk for the wonderful foster home! I love my pug!”Lisa Brown Miller
“I adopted my little girl Belle 6/2/2006 for APARN. Since then she has been beloved companion. She is getting older now (she was 5-7 yrs old) when she found her forever home with me, but her loyalty never falters. I can’t imagine my life without her. What APARN does for these puggy babies is amazing & I thank you for what you do! Belle thanks you!”Lora Hansen

All of APARN’s foster Pugs are protected by SparkyTags.  Part of a pug’s adoption fee covers their first year of monitoring by SparkyTags. APARN has been so pleased with the extra level of protection provided to our pugs by SparkyTags.  There have been several occasions where a newly adopted pug has managed to sneak out of the house, and was returned to its owner within ten minutes because of its SparkyTag!  Visit their website at www.sparkytags.com to learn more.
