Permanent Foster and Hospice


sissySissy is a blind senior female pug that came to CPR in May 2016.  Sissy was surrendered to the Miami-Dade Animal Services shelter by her family.  CPR was contacted because although Sissy was old, blind and starting to loose the function of her back legs, she still had a spark of life in her!  CPR took her in and we vowed to keep her as healthy, safe, comfortable and loved as possible for the rest of her days.  Sissy is now part of our Permanent Foster/Hospice Care program.  She is with a wonderful foster mother who takes care of her every need and gives her plenty of love.

Your monthly or one-time donations go directly to help pugs in need like Sissy.  We can’t thank you enough for your support!


Tootsie came To CPR after her family lost their home to foreclosure.  Tootsie was born in about 2007 so she is a senior, but she still has a lot of spunk!

Unfortunately, Tootsie’s back legs don’t work for her anymore and her eyesight has gone.  She needs help with all of her bathroom duties as she can no longer do it all herself.

Compassionate Pug Rescue is committed to making sure that Tootsie is well cared for and has everything she needs for a comfortable life in a loving CPR foster home for the rest of her days.

Tootsie currently does not have a sponsor or “Pug Angel” as we like to call them.  If you’d like to be a Pug Angel for one of CPR’s Permanent Foster/Hospice pugs, please click our “Donation” Button on any of our CPR website pages and sign up for a Paypal Subscription for $25 per month or more and let us know which pug you’d like to be a Pug Angel for!

Thank you for supporting Pug Rescue! xoxo




36121253_1.jpgHi, I’m Cleo!
I came to CPR when my mom had to go to a nursing home to live. Although I was sad to leave my mom, I was excited to begin my new life with CPR. I got lucky and ended up with a fantastic set of foster pug parents that love me. Since I’ve been with them, I’ve had my teeth cleaned up and I’m on medication for the arthritis that I’ve got in my back legs. I’m feeling (and looking) great! My hearing and eyesight have pretty much gone now due to my age, but then, I really don’t need those things to eat anyway! I’m on eye drops twice a day to keep them from being dry. They say that my lymph nodes are a little enlarged but we’re hoping they get better soon now that I’m getting healthy again.36121253_2.jpg

Due to my age and medical condition, I’m in permanent foster care. If you would like to be my Pug Angel Sponsor and help CPR cover my medical and everyday care expenses, please send an email to to let them know!





Hello, my name is Hobo. I am about 11 years old and weigh about 18-20 lbs.

My foster Mom says that I am very energetic for a “pug of a certain age”. And, even though I am blind and deaf, I can still find my way very nicely. When I came to CPR my eyes were in such bad shape that they were hard crusted and peeling. They were really painful. The good people at CPR gave me medications to ease the pain in my eyes and took me to see a specialist. I had to have surgery – something called “canthoplasty” which really helped me to feel better.

I love the company of other dogs, but I like to find a quiet space on a pillow to snooze on sometimes. I do enjoy my naps… and of course, I enjoy a good meal – but who doesn’t? My foster Mom says that I can be quite the alarm sounder when my meals are being prepared. I just call it getting ready!
