Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:The mission of the French Bulldog Village is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome French Bulldogs and French Bulldog mixes, to provide financial assistance and support services to rescue groups and private rescuers engaged in rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming French Bulldogs and French Bulldog mixes, and to promote programs that advance knowledge about and the responsible acquisition and ownership of the French Bulldog breed.
French Bulldog Village is a national internet rescuse comprised of people from all over North America who have one goal in mind – to help Frenchies find forever homes.
Our Adoption Process:The French Bulldog Village is a unique organization. Yes, we are a rescue group: we foster and rehabilitate French Bulldogs that are rescued by or surrendered to French Bulldog Village volunteers. Our volunteers open their homes to comfort, mend and train the fosters and we rely on discounts from a wonderful network of vets and donations from the public to meet the needs of the Frenchies in our care.
However, we don’t stop there – the French Bulldogs available for adoption in The Village come from many different sources: from other rescue organizations, from private rescuers, from responsible breeders seeking to find new homes for their breeder retirees, older puppies and adult dogs, and dogs with medical issues or handicaps, or even from individual owners who are unable to keep their French Bulldogs.
The criteria for moving into The Village is quite simple, each little resident is looking for a new home and a new start!
This is not a commercial venture for the French Bulldog Village. We receive no compensation for the foster dogs that we place. Any donations made to the French Bulldog Village go directly to help care for French Bulldogs in need, not just those in the custody of the French Bulldog Village, but also those in the custody of other rescue groups or private rescuers.
THE ADOPTION PROCESS
1). If you have made the decision that a Frenchie is the right dog for you and your family, PLEASE carefully review the descriptions of any of the available French Bulldogs to be sure that the dog’s temperament fits well with your particular needs and lifestyle. Let each description about each particular French Bulldog be your guide: read through the information provided carefully as pictures of the dog do not tell the whole story!
While every effort is made to complete the adoption process as quickly as possible, it may take 2 to 6 weeks or longer after the dog has been posted, so please be patient!
2). Complete the online adoption application. Please make sure that you provide as much information about yourself as you can. List your entire household, even including frequent visitors such as grandchildren and stepchildren, and all animals currently living with you, including other dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles. The more information that application contains, the easier it is for the foster home to decide if the Frenchie you have chosen is a good match for your home. Applications are not kept on file. You must fill out a separate application for each dog that interests you.
3). We only accept applications for dogs that are currrently available for placement. We do not accept applications for Foster Frenchies that are not yet listed as available for placement. Once your application is submitted to adopt an available dog, that application will be carefully reviewed by the FBV volunteer fostering the dog. Any questions that you might have regarding any dog should be sent to the email address for that particular dog. If your application is chosen as a potential adopter, your veterinary reference will be checked (if applicable) and the foster home will call you to interview you on the phone. If all goes well, a mutually convenient time for a home visit will be scheduled by either the foster home or an FBVillage volunteer close to you. We encourage our volunteers to bring along one or more of their own French Bulldogs to the home visit.
4). Once the home visit is completed, the home visit report will be forwarded to the foster home and they will make the final adoption decision.
5). All of the FBV available dogs are spayed or neutered (unless a prevailing medical condition indicates that spaying or neutering is not in the best interests of the dog), current on vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to placement. We try to ensure that all French Bulldogs placed are in good health, or alternately that all KNOWN health conditions be identified to the adopter prior to placement.
6). Before you adopt an available dog from the French Bulldog Village, you will be asked to complete and sign an adoption agreement (or in the case of a breeder placement, a sales agreement). Please read the agreement carefully and make sure you agree with the all of the terms before signing.
7). Adoption fees are listed next to each individual dog and are at the sole discretion of the French Bulldog Village, rescue group, private rescuer, breeder, or private individual seeking to find a new home for their dog.
It is the responsibility of the adopter to pick up the dog in person or make transportation arrangements with the rescue group, private rescuer, breeder, or individual dog owner.
We hope this helps. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
