Delaware Valley Bichon Rescue's adoption process


Submit Application

Once an application is submitted, it will be reviewed by one of our volunteers and the family's vet will be contacted for a reference.


Home Check

If the family passes step 1, we schedule a home visit. If possible, we bring the dog along during the home visit.


Sign Adoption Contract

Following the home visit, IF the family is approved for that specific dog and all parties are agreeable, an adoption contract is signed.

About Delaware Valley Bichon Rescue

Delaware Valley Bichon Rescue is a 501c3, non-profit, all-volunteer organization that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes bichons and bichon mixes (and when necessary, their companions) who find themselves in need of a new home. We work with vets, shelters and private families who need our assistance. We take dogs in any condition and of any age, as long as we can find a foster home for them. We are a foster-based organization and therefore we do not have a facility. For that reason, the first step in our adoption process is an application.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
