About the Adoption Form

Update as of 1/23/2014:  We are having some website complications.  If you cannot complete the adoption application through our website, visit BCARN and apply there (the application will still get to us).

We are a group of volunteers who are passionate about the Bulldog breed and devote our time, energy and resources to rescuing, re-rehabilitating and re-homing abandoned, neglected and unwanted Bulldogs all over Southern California.

Our mission is to make sure the dogs in our care are placed with the best, most appropriate homes for their personalities and needs so that they will never again know the feeling of rejection or being turned out. Please be completely honest with your answers on this application so that we can get the best idea of the type of dog that will suit your home, family and lifestyle.

Please know that Bulldogs in Southern California will only be adopted in Southern California (EXCEPT San Diego) and no out of state adoptions. Out of area applicants are encouraged to contact their local rescue program and speak with them about local dogs. There are no exceptions please do not ask.

"Two years ago our family attended the Bulldog Beauty Pageant in Long Beach where we met the SCBR team and learned about this great breed. We had thought about getting a bulldog for a long time. A year ago we finally submitted an application and met with SCBR volunteer Vicki. Within weeks she had found the perfect dog for us! When we met Butters it was love at first sight. We have never had a dog before and couldn't have made it through the first year of bulldog ownership without the help of SCBR and Vicki who always answered my emails and phone calls about dry noses, cleaning folds and tail pockets, putting in eye drops and more! Our newest family member never leaves our side and brings joy every day. We can't say enough about the great work SCBR does and are so thankful for the volunteers.."
