Approximately 5 to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year, and up to 3 to 4 million are euthanized as a result of not finding a forever home. You can make a difference by donating to Pug Rescue of Korea TODAY!

About Pug Rescue of Korea

We are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization and exist for the sole purpose of finding permanent homes for rescued and unwanted pugs in both South Korea and the U.S.A. While every attempt is made to keep the pugs in their country of origin, their re-home rate in Korea is very low. In these instances, the pugs are then flown to Los Angeles, California to find forever homes.

We are a group of dedicated volunteers located in both South Korea and California. With about 3-4 steady volunteers in each country, none of our volunteers are paid for their services and do this entirely on their own time, and at their own expense. If you are interested in helping, some of the duties include assisting with pug pickups and transportation at LAX and Korean Air Cargo (both in Los Angeles), responding to emails, coordinating international paperwork/fees, and occasionally fostering pugs in the Southern California area.

If you are intereseted in adopting a pug, fostering one, or volunteering, please email us at for more information.
