Our supporter bracelet comes with a hanging tag (removable) that explains this bracelet is a daily reminder of the bulldogs in So Cal Bulldog Rescue that you have helped care and save for adoption into loving homes.

These are unisex bracelets and child safe. We do suppose, you could be ‘crafty’ and find a way to get onto a dog collar too, if wanted.

The adjustable wrist bands some in colors that match our logo – orange, light blue, dark blue and black. There are limited numbers on hand. They come in adjustable unisex sizes small/medium or medium/large.

We’re asking for a $15 each as a donation towards SCBR to help care for the bulldogs in rescue if mailed to the same address. 100% proceeds from the sales of these brackets will go to help pay for needed surgeries, food and medications for our rescue bulldogs.

Brunch for the Bullies 2013


14 Mar

 

PLEASE NOTE CHANGES FROM THE PREVIOUS YEARS EVENT

Brunch for The Bullies will be April 14, 2013 at ‘The Hacienda Restaurant’ in Santa Ana. Due to the large crowd of guests with dogs and the size of the location, the restaurant can no longer allow all pets to come. Dogs are not allowed at this event this year.

GREAT NEWS is we can have as many guests as we wish. It is still the same great Sunday Brunch, with a silent auction and friends and family coming together to support bulldog rescue.

NEW this year, we’re going to have contests with prizes.

PLUS, get your favorite bulldog photograph ready. We’re also having a ‘Favorite Bulldog Photo Contest’ open only to attendees at this brunch with awards given for the best photographs.

REMEMBER, while you enjoy a delicious brunch buffet and a fun time with friends, that 100% of the day’s proceeds will go to benefit our many bulldogs in need of food, shelter, medical care, and loving homes.

Brunch will be from 10 AM to 2 PM, tickets are $25 each for the buffet and can be ordered in advance. Also, limited tickets will be available on the day of brunch starting at 10 AM.

Hope to see you there. Thank you for supporting bulldog rescue!

Families and larger groups should email us directly at SoCalBulldogRsq@aol.com for ticketing assistance.

No Bulldog Left Behind


28 Nov

 

BP Dogs

As many of you have seen in the news, we recently acquired 12 English Bulldogs from the Baldwin Park Animal Shelter after they had been seized from their home by authorities. These dogs are now a part of the Southern California Bulldog Rescue family, joining approximately 70 other English Bulldogs already in our care and looking for homes. Many of these bulldogs, in addition to ones we have taken in outside of this situation, require a lot of time and effort to be made healthy and adoptable. Sadly, we see dogs come into rescue like this all the time, often in deplorable conditions, but their stories do not make the news as the Baldwin Park dogs did. This is every day in rescue. All of the care for these dogs comes as a great expense to Southern California Bulldog Rescue, which is currently handling over 80 English Bulldogs in its care right now. We are looking for assistance in caring for these dogs that desperately need medical care and rehabilitation to get their second chance in life and find new, loving homes. We are a 501 c(3) non-profit organization and rely entirely on donations to support us.

I want to help! What can I do?

  • Donate money through Crowdrise (http://www.crowdrise.com/nblb)
  • Check with your employer to see if they do matching donations (List of some here.)
  • Make your impact last longer with a recurring monthly pledge (More info here.)
  • Share the cause with your friends and family
  • Have your own fundraiser (bake sale, etc.) & donate the proceeds back to SCBR
  • Other creative ways can be found here.

What will the funds be used for?
Southern California Bulldog Rescue spends approximately $15,000 a month caring for the dogs in its care. These costs include, but are not limited, to the following:

-Kenneling
-Food (including special and restricted diets)
-Basic medications
-Transportation
-Mange treatment
-Treatment for Kennel cough
-Treatment for Auto immune deficiencies
-Treatment for Megaesophagus
-Palate surgeries
-Entropian eye surgeries
-Spays and Neuters
-Treatment for fractured & broken legs
-Treatment for urinary stones and tract infections
-Cancer treatments
-Heartworm treatment
-Treatment for various heart issues
-Medicated baths for skin issues

Estimated monthly cost for dogs in rescue: $15,000

Will I get anything for my donation?
Besides a warm, fuzzy feeling in your heart, we are offering some thank you gifts to our supporters.

  • All donations above $25 will receive a pawtographed photo of one of the dogs in rescue that you are helping.
  • $50 donations will receive a SCBR keychain and 2013 SCBR Calendar
  • $75 donations will receive a SCBR keychain and a limited edition SCBR Holiday Ornament
  • $100+ donations will receive an exclusive, limited edition “No Bulldog Left Behind” tote bag

 

What about the Baldwin Park dogs? Tell me more!
These are all adult dogs (there are NO PUPPIES) and they are currently receiving veterinary care to make them healthy and adoptable. When they are healthy, they will be made available for adoption. There are no puppies and none are expected. The dogs from Baldwin Park need medical care for the following issues:

aspen

-Spays and neuters
-Entropian eye surgeries
-Palate surgeries
-Antibiotics for upper respiratory infections
-Fractured growth plate
-Mammary gland removal

The total estimated cost for the treatment of the Baldwin Park dogs is approximately $5000.

 

I want to adopt a dog! How do I do that?
If you live in the Southern California area (excluding San Diego) and are interested in adopting an English Bulldog from us, please visit our website at www.socalbulldogrescue.org and fill out an application. All adoptions require an application, homecheck and adoption fee. Please note that we normally do not see healthy puppies in rescue and do not take applications just for puppies. We are currently accepting applications for adoptions of any of our 80 English Bulldogs currently in rescue.

Lend a hand to help a paw!

At SCBR, we love each of our bullies as a child should be loved.  We love them for the slobbering kisses that tell us what we do matter; we continue to love them because we know there is so much we have left to do; we love them more because someone ought to.  You and SCBR can join hands and pull together to bring in donations of dog food, treats, toys, and supplies to make the holidays special for our rescue bulldogs!  In-kind and general donations will be accepted at the monthly Adopt-A-Bulldog meet-and-greet on November 10.

Online and mail-in donations are cherished year-round; being a depend-a-bull hero is always in season!

Here’s what we’re looking for:

Butters

"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.."
