Pug lovers by choice, rescue by chance

MuffinPug Rescue is a breed specific rescue across the UK that is dedicated to actively rescuing pugs and pug crosses in need. As the breed has become increasingly more fashionable over the years, it has meant that many pugs have been exploited and mistreated in order to meet the growing demand.


As a registered UK charity (1164018) that aims to end the suffering of neglected pugs, we operate through a network of volunteers called Fairy Pug Mothers and Fathers. Our aim is to rescue and rehabilitate pugs within a home foster environment, to prepare them for their forever homes.


We also aim to educate adopters and owners on how to care and look after a pug. We believe that our dogs should lead a long, happy, healthy and natural lifestyle.

Please read Muffin’s story. This was born from a need to help, you will see that our rescue came from seeing the need to save a brave little pug that had been mistreated, abused and neglected.


How we help…

Every dog that comes into MuffinPug Rescue gets treated as if they are our own. Our dogs come from a number of different backgrounds; sometimes we have their full history from a surrendered loving home, sometimes we have no information and must determine their needs for ourselves based on their behaviour.

Our experience has shown that pugs do not do well in kennels and need the loving touch of another human and dogs. We ensure all our pugs are placed with an approved foster parent for assessment before moving to their perfect, new forever home.

Every dog that comes into MuffinPug Rescue visits one one of our trusted vets to have a full check up, including a blood test. This allows us to gain a full understanding of the dog’s health. We will never attempt to rehome a dog that is unspayed or neutered to ensure that they can never be abused with excessive and inappropriate breeding. We arrange all vet care, where possible in their foster homes and nurse them back to perfect health before being adopted.

How we run…

MuffinPug Rescue is run using a network of Fairy Pug Mothers and Fathers across the UK. Without them we would not be able to complete the work that we do.
