PugHearts has successfully rescued: 1805 dogs since Feb 2007 and 141 dogs are currently available.
PugHearts of Houston Pug Rescue is a true 501(c)(3) non-profit charity founded in the Houston area by dedicated pug owners and lovers.  Our mission is the rescue, rehabilitation and permanent placement of needy pugs into loving homes.
February 14th 2015 was PugHeart's birthday. This year we are 8 years old.

I spent yesterday looking back at photos, emails and Facebook posts from this amazing organization. The feelings that I experienced looking at them all were overwhelming. I felt total joy, viewed amazing success and remembered some of the intense pain that came with the losses and sweet faces we were not able to save.

We started PugHearts with a few people sitting in my den with high ideals and big dreams. We never expected to achieve so much or make such an expansive difference. I am proud to say that those people in my den are still a part of PugHearts. That makes me very happy. PugHearts has rescued over 1600+ pugs in the 8 years since we began. That level of success is not achieved by one person, one group or by accident.

That level of success is achieved together….by all of us. Together we can do anything, manage anything and create miracles. Our mission to save the pugs that need us has united a group of people that are beyond what the greatest imagination would hope for if they were designing this group from their dreams. You are ALL amazing. We each bring unique and important skills and gifts to the pugs we rescue. I thank you each for that. So for those just being introduced to PugHearts, we try to keep it simple.

PugHearts will take any pug, at any age, in any condition…..anytime.

Thank you and Happy Birthday to PugHearts.

Pugs on the Bayou 2014 was our most successful annual event to date. We had about 500 people attend the event and raised an amazing $50,000. These funds will allow us to continue to accept, care for and prepare for adoption the 120+ pugs in our care.

The 2014 yearbook contained 243 alumni adopted between September 2013 and September 2014. The numbers in need just keep climbing. Our vet bill this year is on track to top $250,000. Your support and donations are what allow us to accept the sickest, most injured and worst cases without having to worry about if we should or if we can afford to. For that we all thank you.

Stay tuned 2015 looks to be even more exciting than 2014.

Mercy is a fawn female. She is 10 years old. She is an owner surrender through no fault of her own.

From Mercy's foster: Hi, Mercy here. They say I am “ALPHA,” I might be better off being an only dog. I am 10 years young and have a little joint issue but this does not slow me down if I see a toy that interests me. I will take a toy outside when no one is watching just a game of “hide and seek.” I weigh about 20lbs. I love to get attention in the morning when the alarm goes off, but if it is cold I just snuggle down. That reminds me, I snuggle up against you to sleep and this goes for just sitting and watching TV. Just give me some belly rubs and the chin, oh yeah, I love the chin scratched. I love playing with children and bring my toys for them to throw and play with. I sometimes will hump legs, and my foster mom has just about broken me of this habit. I am very well potty trained for outside. I do cry when left alone so if you stay at home a lot you just might be the family I have been looking for.

PugHearts of Houston has maintained a Group page on Facebook for the past several years. We encourage past adopters, potential adopters, fosters and all Pug lovers to join us! We love to post and share photos, heartwarming stories and advice on Pugs.

We have always required that potential FB PugHearts Group members submit a request to join our group in an effort to control SPAM and unauthorized posts. Group posts were visible to the public, but only approved group members could post comments or photos.

However, facebook has recently made some changes to their terms of service which made the PugHearts Group an “open” group, allowing anyone to post on our FB page. This resulted in some unfortunate posts which upset many people. It also allows for unauthorized use of images from our Group and opens our members to breaches of their privacy. We have now changed the status of our group back to “Closed” which once again requires any new members to submit a request to join before they can post.

This change does not affect any existing facebook group members in any way.

Cruelty is 24/7/365 - Please HELP!

However, with these new changes our FB Group is now only visible to existing members. None of our posts or images are available to be viewed by anyone not a current member of our Group. This ensures the safety of our members as well as the protection of our content.

To become a member of our FB Group , simply go to our FB Group page and request to join. Our Administrators will take a quick peek at your profile to ensure you are a genuine pug-loving person (and not a SPAM bot) and with one click they will add you as a member. If your FB profile is brand new or you have a very blank profile, they may ask you for additional information to verify you are a genuine requestor. Once you are added you can post and read to your heart’s content. Just remember to play nice and refrain from abusive posts. We want to encourage and educate Pug lovers by making this a welcoming and nurturing environment.

So come on over to our FB Group page and see what’s happening with your fellow Pug lovers!
