INWPR is a registered non-profit charity whose mission is to rescue unwanted pugs in the Idaho Panhandle/Greater Spokane, Washington area and place them in loving permanent homes since 2004. We work with area shelters and other registered non-profit rescue groups.
All rescued pugs are seen by our vet and spayed and neutered prior to placement by INWPR. We spend at least $200 per pug on vet care, and more if you factor in food, supplies, time and gas, so we now ask for a processing fee with your application.
If you are interested in adopting one of our pugs, send in your completed application with a $5 nonrefundable processing fee. There is no need to email us about your interest. No placements will occur without a signed adoption application. Unsigned and/or incomplete applications and emailed applications will be discarded. Applications are kept on file for six months. If you are matched with a dog, you must sign an adoption contract; there are no exceptions.
We will not adopt outside the Spokane Washington/Coeur d'Alene Idaho (Panhandle) area. Save time and do not inquire or apply if you live outside our area. This is a hard and fast policy: NO EXCEPTIONS ANY MORE.
If you are looking for a "cheap" purebred dog, a rescue is not for you. If you are looking for a puppy, don't waste your time applying. We do not get puppies in rescue because they are so cute and adorable that people wait until it's grown to give it up. Please find a reputable breeder instead (a good "test" is to ask them if they know what a liver shunt is.)
