Short Mugs Rescue Squad is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the health and well-being of French Bulldogs. We are based out of Texas and run and managed solely by volunteers. Our main objective is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home French Bulldogs that come to us from many sources including local animal shelters, owner surrenders, strays, commercial breeding kennels, import brokers and private rescue groups.
We also rescue other brachycephalic breeds such as english bulldogs, boston terriers and pugs. Any mix breed dogs such as frenchbo (frenchie/boston), Frug (frenchie/pug), Chug (pug/chihuahua) will be evaluated on an individual basis. We will need photos sent to us from a variety of angles to be able to make our determination.
We are based out of the Houston area, but we rescue across the entire state of Texas along with Oklahoma and Louisiana.
