Southern Nevada Pug Rescue is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue and placement of Pugs in need. Its mission is to rescue neglected, homeless, unwanted, sick or injured Pugs, rehabilitate them and place them in loving, permanent homes in Southern Nevada. SNPR strives to educate the public about the Pug dog breed, to encourage responsible pet ownership, and to see to it that any Pug that comes through the rescue ends up in a caring, committed environment. SNPR formed in November 2005 to continue the work of KC’s Pug Rescue when founders KC and Rudy retired and moved from the Las Vegas area. Since 1998, more than 1000 Pugs have been rescued.
The rescue hotline is 702-883-0740. Donations can be mailed to Southern Nevada Pug Rescue, P.O. Box 20875, Las Vegas, NV 89112. For more information, visit rescuepugs.com.
