Almost Home Bulldog Rescue, Inc.'s Adoption Process

Almost Home Bulldog Rescue is a 100% volunteer run organization & we receive many inquiries daily. Our average response time to general inquiries is 3-5 business days.

Adopting out of State: We do not normally adopt out of state since we require a home visit as well as a meet and greet with you and your potential pup performed by an Almost Home representative. In addition, our organization maintains contact with our adoptive families for the life of our dogs. We are a support network for anything that could ever arise with our rescue families and, unfortunately, at this time we could not give that initial security to a long-distance adoption. If you are interested in adopting a Bulldog and do not live in the state of Arizona, please check:

Rescue Bulldogs: Please keep in mind that rescued Bulldogs are not always happy, healthy or well adjusted. If you are considering adopting a rescue it should be because you are committed to giving a homeless dog a second chance. This means having the time and patience to work with social, emotional and behavioral problems. In some cases, a health issue is present. Many rescued Bulldogs don't get along with other animals and some can't be placed with children. If you're seeking a rescue as a way to obtain a cheap Bulldog, you've come to the wrong place. You must be passionate about the breed to accept what baggage comes along. If you're looking for perfection, please buy from a reputable breeder.


Adoption Process

Step 1, Adoption Questionnaire: This can be completed on our website at www.AHBR.org
Our volunteers will review your questionnaire for the dog(s) you have applied for as well as any currently in rescue. If not selected for a current bully, no need to worry as we love to do the matchmaking and keep all questionnaires on file for a full year. Some of our bullies are not posted on AdoptaPet or on our website due to potential families on file. You are welcome to send an email for a bully you would like to be considered for however you DO NOT need to resubmit your questionnaire unless you have moved.

Step 2, Phone Call: You will receive an email to schedule a day/time for a phone call to review your questionnaire. This email is sent once we have reviewed your questionnaire and when we have a bully that may be fit for your home. On the call, our volunteer will cover any additional questions from reviewing your questionnaire. This is also a great time to answer any questions you may have. We want to make sure we are matching the right bully to the right home.

Step 3, Reference Check: We will contact your Veterinarian & landlord (if applicable). This is a critical step to ensure the safety of our dogs and that we are making the right match for you and your family.

Step 4, Home Visit: If your vet check is favorable, the next step is to arrange a home visit at a time that all family members will be available & when your outdoor property can also be observed. When you are contacted by the volunteer who will be visiting with you, that individual will be committing their own time to a meeting that will be convenient for everyone. Please be certain that you will be available for that visit. The volunteer who visits you will be making observations based on AHBR's criteria. This person is not the individual who will approve or disapprove your potential adoption. Often, this person is not someone who is fostering any of our dogs and will usually not be able to answer questions about the dogs. Home visits are based on our volunteers’ geographic location and their proximity to the prospective adopters.

Step 5, Meet & Greet: If the home visit has gone well we will consider you “approved”. At that time we will arrange a meet and greet. We prefer to have all family members and other pets meet with the Bulldog who might become the new family member.

Step 6, Adoption: When you have met a dog that is a suitable match, the next steps are discussed at that time. We will speak with you at length regarding what you can expect during the re-homing and adaptation period. Our adoption donation is $350-$650

Removing your Questionnaire: If at any point you have acquired a dog elsewhere, or have decided you are no longer interested in adopting through AHBR, please contact us so that we can remove your questionnaire from further consideration.

It is important for all interested parties to understand that our primary commitment is to the dogs who are in our care.
