Arizona Pug Adoption And Rescue Network (APARN)
APARN is a 501c3 non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue and placement of the pug breed. Your donation is tax-deductible.
APARN‘s Mission is to rescue abused, abandoned, homeless, unwanted, sick or injured Pugs, rehabilitate them and place them into loving, permanent adoptive homes in Arizona. We strive to educate the public about the Pug dog breed, including its personality, special needs and care.
We provide medical care and spay or neuter operations for all of the Pugs that come into our rescue. For Pugs that are sick when we get them we must stabilize them (unless we have an adopter who is willing to take on the care of a sick Pug). Not only do the costs add up but often we need volunteers to transport Pugs from one part of the state to another, foster in their homes, or help with fundraising. There are many ways you can help APARN!
APARN does not have a shelter. We are a state-wide network of volunteers. All of our rescued pugs are housed in approved volunteer foster homes, where they are loved and treated as family until their forever home is found.
