WELCOME TO PUGHEARTS OF HOUSTON PUG RESCUE
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.
IMPORTANT FACEBOOK GROUP CHANGES
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.
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!

PUG OF THE MOMENT
|Billy Bob||PH ID: #751|
|Billy Bob is a fawn male. He comes to us from a local animal control facility. We believe he is about 3 years old. He is a very sick little boy right now, suffering from a severe case of pneumonia as well as being severely heartworm positive. We will post updates as his situation evolves.|
Update from Billy Bob's foster: Billy Bob is a young fawn male who has been neutered and brought current on his vaccinations. He is heart worm positive and will be treated in a couple of months.
Billy Bob is a well behaved little man. He knows how to sit and use the doggy door. He gets along well with other dogs and children. He was very sick when he was rescued, but now is feeling better and starting to play with toys and other members of our pack. He likes to cuddle as well as play. At times he seems to be talking to me with his soft woo, woo, woo. He will make a good companion in a forever home with lots of love to give once he's over his heart worm treatment.
