Guardian Angels Pug Rescue
IRS 501(C)(3) Tax deductible, non-profit, no-kill rescue organization
To adopt or foster from GAPR, please completely fill out our ADOPTION APPLICATION. (If foster, then please write "FOSTER" on the top of the form.) Then print out the application and mail it to us at: GAPR, 259 Derbytown Road, Latrobe, PA 15650. Then please alert your references to the fact that we will be in contact with them and to please answer all our questions and return any of our phone calls. Your references are extremely important.
After your application has been processed, and references have been checked, we will then conduct a home inspection. This is a very important part of our process, and we must meet all family members - both human and furbabies. Please note that many of our rescues have come from less than desirable environments, and we need to make sure that their next home will be a safe, clean, loving home for them to be comfortable for the rest of their lives. If you are uncomfortable with a home inspection and do not permit us to conduct one, then we will be unable to allow you to adopt. Again, we are doing this for the protection of the rescue Pugs and hope you can understand our need to do the home inspection. We will give you the name of our volunteer conducting the home inspection prior to the visit. IF you are approved to adopt, then your entire family (including all other dogs) will have an appointment made to come to our shelter and visit with all the rescue Pugs and possibly adopt. We reserve the right to refuse an adoption per our discretion regarding the happiness and safety of our rescue Pugs.
After a home has been approved, there is an adoption fee that ranges from $150 - $500 depending on the age, health, medical care, how many pugs you adopt at one time, etc. Each pug is evaluated and then an adoption fee is applied. Please do not call for specific adoption fees on particular pugs as due to legal reasons we are advised against giving out this information prior to adoption approval.
Please note also that upon approval for adoption, your entire family will be required to make the trip to our shelter in Latrobe, PA. If you are unable to do so, please consider adoption from a rescue that may be nearer to you.
We do NOT transport our rescues to their new homes, and remember that this is a lifetime commitment, that pugs can live to be 16+ years old.
