Southeast Pug Rescue & Adoption, Inc. (SEPRA) was formed in Georgia in 1990 to aid in placing lost, surrendered or abandoned pugs in loving, caring homes primarily in the Southeast (GA, FL, SC, TN, MO). Although, we will take any pug in need from any place.
We are an all volunteer, 501(c)(3), not for profit organization dedicated to our pugs. SEPRA will take any and all pugs regardless of age, health and/or temperament, and we've even been known to take pug mixes. Our pugs come from a variety of avenues including shelters, owner surrenders, and even found wandering down the streets.
All pugs are placed in foster care with dedicated volunteers for evaluation and vet-work, which includes: shots, spaying/neutering and treatment for any illnesses, if necessary. We've had many come through with heartworms, knee/hip problems, eye problems, broken limbs etc. We will treat all that is reasonably possible as long as the pug is not suffering. Due to the never ending vet bills, our adoption fee is $250 (donations are also gladly accepted).
Potential adopters (after interviews) will sign an adoption contract stating if for any reason the new home does not work out, SEPRA will be notified and the pug will be returned to us. Southeast Pug Rescue rescues for the life of the pug. If the pug is returned to us within 3 weeks, the adopter will receive a full refund of the adoption fee. Please note, we do not ship our dogs. If you live out of state, we expect you to make arrangements to pick up your adopted new friend.
SEPRA is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization. All donations are tax deductible.
