UPDATE: Due to the passing of the littlest puppy, we will only be selecting 2 winners. Our hearts are broken for this loss.

Remmy joined GMPR last month and brought with her a secret to share, actually 3 little pug sized secrets! We welcomed her new arrivals in true pug form, one walked out waving and the other two required a late night, high-speed race to the emergency vet. Her perfect little puppies made their debut into the world last week, one boy and two little girls. Now, we all know how pup-ular, yet doggone expensive babies are.. Don't be left out in the dog house, we doubledog dare you to enter our puppybowl fundraiser! It is $10 per square and 2 lucky winners will be selected once the board is filled. The winners will get to name one of the puppies as the prize! How adorable are these babies!?!?!

To purchase a square, we accept Paypal, Venmo or through our online store.

These little angels will not be available for adoption until they are a bit older, more to follow as we watch them grow.

Thank you for your support!

Spring Pug Meet-Ups!

Do you own a pug or pug mix? Are you as OBSESSED with the breed as we are and want to meet like-minded PUG enthusiasts? Green Mountain Pug Rescue has planned two Pug Meetups and a third one is in the planning process! Wildhart Distillery in VT and The Outlaw Brewing Company in NH has generously allowed our rescue group to hold our little events at their FABULOUS locations so attendees can also enjoy their delicious cocktails, food, music and overall fun atmosphere, all whilst walking among these adorable dogs in all of their curly tailed, smooshy-faced GLORY!

Bring your pugs (or for those in the know... your "Grumble") and mingle with pugs, pug people and learn more about Green Mountain Pug Rescue! All well behaved breeds are welcome though if they want to pretend to be pugs as well. We'll be running a doggy photo booth where you can have a professional photo of your dog taken for a $15 donation fee, all proceeds going to the pugs of Green Mountain Pug Rescue ($5 per additional dog in each image).

The NH Pug Meet-Up at The Outlaw Brewing Company is in Winchester, NH and will be held on June 4, 2023 from 1pm - 4pm. The VT Pug Meet-Up at Wild Hart Distillery is in Shelburne, VT and will be held on June 10, 2023 from 3pm - 6pm. At the VT Pug Meet-Up, the distillery will also be running a cocktail special with each of a particular cocktail sold, they will donate $2 to GMPR. In lieu of buying tickets to participate in the event, we will be asking for a recommended donation of $10 that can be dropped off in a donation jar at the bar or at our Photo Booth.

All donations will go to GMPR to help save more pugs and for their vetting.

We are so excited to see you there!

2023 Pug Social

Our Annual Pug Social is back for 2023 and we have a new, beautiful location at Camp Plymouth State Park in Ludlow, Vermont. This area of Vermont is the picturesque Vermont we all love and right on a lake. We will have auctions, raffles, contests and more! The people and pugs will have access to the lake if its a warm day. To learn more about our event and local hotel accomodations, go to our Pug Social page for more details. We hope to see you there!


Wish you could adopt, but cannot at this time??

You can still help out in various other ways. Right now we’re seeking volunteers to assist in performing home visits and fostering dogs in our care until they are ready to go to their forever homes. We make every effort to ensure our rescues live their best life after coming into our organization. One of the most important steps is a home visit. Home visits help us to determine the best placement of our rescues by matching the perfect family with the perfect rescue.

Our volunteer base is just too small within our coverage areas to handle all of our applications and we have been forced to turn some folks away. We’re reaching out in hopes to build our volunteer base so we never have to turn away an applicant due to our inability to perform the necessary home visit…

Since we don't have a shelter, we need loving foster homes that can take in the dogs we save, bring them to their vet appointments and just give them the love they deserve until they can be placed with their forever family. Foster families are not responsible for any vet bills and can be reimbursed for dog food, treats and other necessary supplies for the dog.

What do you need to do???

It’s simple, let us know you’re willing to help out with home visits or other volunteer needs by completing a Volunteer Application or complete a Foster Application if you want to open your home to a foster dog.

The true display of one's character is how they treat those who cannot speak or do for themselves. You're all heroes in our book and we thank you all for your continued support!! We can’t do this without you!

Pet-Friendly Housing

According to a study conducted by the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), the number one reason for pet relinquishment is moving.

Check out the pet-friendly apartments in Burlington, Montpelier, Manchester, Concord, and Portland.
