Pug Rescues In PA [Pennsylvania Adoption Directory Guide]

Are you looking to adopt a pig from a rescue in PA? Well, where do you even begin?

So, I decided to pull together a directory of all the pug rescues in the state of Pennsylvania.

This way, you can start making your inquiries, while ensuring you only do so at the best and most reputable rescues.

Onto the list.

These are the main pug adoptions in Pennsylvania; certainly the ones to get started with.

And while I spent a good amount of time researching online for these particular rescues, if you notice any that should be in the directory are missing, do contact me.

I’d be keen to add them to the list!

Other than this, when it comes to the adoption process; be patient, think long term, and do your research well ahead of time.

And keep the faith; the application can take a while and it will all begin with some long forms to fill out!

It will be worth it though, so do persevere!
