Terms of Agreement

Thank you for taking the time and care to complete this application.  Please try to answer each question as completely as possible.  Incomplete applications may not be considered.  By clicking “SUBMIT THE APPLICATION” button below, you are attesting to the truthfulness of your answers.  Falsification of any of the above information will be grounds to disallow your adoption of a rescue pug.

Our rescue pugs are located throughout the Northern California area.  In order to be considered for a particular pug, you must be willing to drive to where that pug is being fostered.  By submitting this application, you attest that you will travel to meet a pug when a possible match has been determined.  Refusal to travel to meet a pug due to distance only will terminate the entire adoption process with Pug Rescue of Sacramento (PROS).

PROS adopts pugs only to homes willing to make a lifetime commitment to their pugs.  Pugs are to be treated as family members.  They require a quality diet, to be given regular medical care and vaccinations.  PROS will be checking on the pug at various times and has the right to reclaim any pug if the circumstances warrant such action.  Should an adopter ever have to give up the pug, it will be returned back to PROS at no charge to PROS.

PUG RESCUE OF SACRAMENTO RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ANY ADOPTION.

I HAVE READ AND AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS ABOVE, ADDITIONALLY I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE “ADOPTION PROCESS”.
