PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY BEFORE CONTACTING BULLDOG RESCUE
Southern California Bulldog Rescue is the oldest bulldog rescue in the West and has the largest pure breed rescue program for this breed in California. Families and individuals wanting more information on bulldogs or our rescue program may see us at: www.socalbulldogrescue.org
If you feel this is a good time for you to consider the adoption of a rescue bulldog, we encourage you to fill out an on line application prior to asking to meet any of the bulldogs for adoption. Without an application, you will most likely will be asked to provide information though a series email exchanges that will delay you meeting any bulldogs in this rescue program.
** PLEASE HAVE AN APPLICATION ON FILE PRIOR TO INQUIRING ABOUT ANY OF THE BULLDOGS - NO EXCEPTIONS. **
The adoption application and additional information can be found at our website at http://www.socalbulldogrescue.org

So Cal Bulldog Rescue obtains homeless Bulldogs from owners who give them up to us, from individuals who find them as strays, from veterinarians when the dogs are given to them by the owners, and sometimes from animal shelters. Reasons for dogs being given up or abandoned are numerous but are often along the lines of "we have no time for the dog" or "we cannot afford the needed medical care".
Our volunteers provide foster care for homeless Bulldogs, place Bulldogs in new homes, maintain waiting lists of people who are willing to adopt, and provide education and counseling for Bulldog owners and adopters. Bulldogs taken into foster care are given necessary veterinary care, including vaccinations and heartworm preventatives. Temperaments are evaluated, and Rescue Network members do not knowingly place aggressive dogs in foster care or new homes. Training and socialization are also provided when needed.
Applicants for adoption are carefully screened via telephone interviews, home visits, and contacts with veterinarians and landlords, when applicable. Most rescue groups require the applicant to meet the Bulldog before a placement is arranged. The objective is to match rescued Bulldogs with the most suitable adopter.
Submit an adoption application through the Southern California Bulldog Rescue website.

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
