About Our Rescue Group:

Bichon FurKids Rescue focuses on Bichon Frises and Bichon mixes in need of forever homes. We rescue from local shelters, as well as provide services for pets who are surrendered directly to us. Our dogs are cared for in foster homes where they learn to be socialized, housebroken and to become part of a family. Our services are highly personalized - and we work directly with our volunteers to help rescued dogs successfully transition to new homes and lives.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our pets are all cared for in foster homes. While in foster care, their foster family is making sure they receive lots of tender loving care and have any veterinary needs taken care of. This also gives the foster family an opportunity to learn about the dog's personality, so we can better assist you in selecting a dog that will be the best fit for you and your family.

Our Adoption Process:

Prospective adopters must complete an online application available at our web site. A volunteer then conducts a telephone interview to assess which dog would be the best fit for interested adopters. Adopters will also be contacted regarding having a BFK volunteer conduct a home safety check. Once that has been completed - and the prospective adopter is approved - we will then provide adopters with the contact info for the foster home of the pet or pets they are interested in meeting. Adopters will be invited to visit the dog at its foster home. All adopters will be required to complete an adoption contract available on our web site. We accept a $350.00 donation for dogs over one year which is used to offset many of the veterinary costs. The adoption fee for our puppies is $500. Our dogs are spayed or neutered, generally microchipped and fully vaccinated when adopted. Donations beyond our adoption fee are also appreciated so that we can rescue and save more lives.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
