A Las Vegas, NV 89130 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs.
1 - 1 of 1 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We are located in Southern Nevada. (Las Vegas, N. Las Vegas, Henderson & surrounding areas). Northern Nevada also is staffed with members of the Bulldog Club of America Rescue Network volunteers. We work together to insure that all Bulldogs in our state receive the assistance and care that they need.
The BCA Rescue Network, Inc. is a non-profit organization with IRS 501c) 3) status. We have many volunteers nationwide who love the Bulldog breed and are dedicated to its continued well-being. The volunteers find new homes for more than 1000 Bulldogs per year. Many thousands of dollars are spent to provide medical care, food, shelter, and training while the rescued Bulldogs are awaiting adoption.
ADOPTION IS THE OPTION!!!
We are here to educate and assist whenever we can.
The Bulldog Club of America Rescue Network (BCARN) has volunteers working throughout the US and some in Canada.
If you need to give up a Bulldog to rescue, please call or send email to the local BCA Rescue Network representative nearest you. (www.rescuebulldogs.org)
If you are interested in adopting a rescued Bulldog, please complete the online adoption application before you contact the local BCA Rescue Network representative. Use the Apply to Adopt link in the menu on the left.
The BCA Rescue Network rescues only the purebred Bulldogs sometimes referred to as "English" or "British" Bulldogs.
How the BCA Rescue Network program works:
BCA Rescue Network volunteers obtain homeless Bulldogs from owners who surrender them us, from individuals who find them as strays, from veterinarians when the dogs are left with them by the owners, and 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".
BCA Rescue Network volunteers provide foster care for homeless Bulldogs, place Bulldogs in new homes, and provide education and counseling for Bulldog owners and adopters. Bulldogs in foster care are given necessary veterinary care, including vaccinations and heartworm preventatives. All rescued Bulldogs are spayed/neutered before adoption. Temperaments are evaluated, and Rescue Network volunteers do not knowingly place aggressive dogs in 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. We require the applicant and all family members, including dogs currently in the home, to meet the rescued Bulldog before a placement is finalized. The objective is to match the rescued Bulldog with the most suitable adopter.
Throughout the year there will be various events which offer Bulldog breed information, as well as Adoption options: The Las Vegas Pet Expo, Smarty Paws Canine Coaching, and events in conjunction with The Las Vegas Bulldog Club. (www.lasvegasbulldogclub.com)
From time to time, available Bulldogs are listed on the BCARN web site

Adoptions are completed with the understanding that the adopting family will be asked to give a donation to the BCA Rescue Network to help with the spaying/neutering and veterinary care of current and/or future rescued Bulldogs.
