help us rescue pugs & pug mixes!
why support tiny paws?
+ Tiny Paws Pug Rescue is a non-profit operated for charitable purposes of helping Pugs and Pug mixes in need of homes, medical and love.
+ Our purpose is to rescue and prepare the dogs for their forever homes. The team also provides education and support to potential adoptive families and the community to ensure breed understanding and the responsibility of owning a dog.
+ Our programs include sending out ambassadors to raise social consciousness about the cause on a local level, and to hold fundraising events in order to provide immediate relief and assistance to those animals suffering from chronic malnutrition, hunger or in danger of euthanasia regardless of their source, ie shelters, homes, or strays.
+ To maximize our impact on current efforts, we may seek to collaborate with other non-profit organizations that are operated for educational and charitable purposes.
+ We may provide internships or volunteer opportunities that will provide opportunities for involvement in said activities and programs in order to have a greater impact for change.

Sponsor A Pug
Max is a senior guy. He came in to the rescue about 2 years ago. He was in bad shape. We fixed him up - and found him a new home.
After a short period of time, Max began to struggle and seemed more lost than ever. Max was in a bad place mentally due to early abuse and began to lose his vision. His adoptive family could not adapt to the changes. They called us to pick him. We did happily.
Because of this, Max, is a forever foster and will live out his life within the rescue.
Please donate to support this wonderful senior pug.
Manny is a cute senior boy. He is our most recent Forever Foster. He has known a life of love from his person.
As the transition from his Mom to the rescue can sometimes be tough for seniors, and because of his special needs, we decided that in the best interest of Manny that he should stay in the home of his foster and live out his life.
He is 15 years of age, has back end issues, but can get around. In order to keep him clean, his foter Mom expresses his bladder several times a day.
If you would like to help support this beautiful seniors life, please consider donating to support his care.
