Help Us

Southern California Bulldog Rescue (SCBR) was founded in 2007 by volunteers to provide shelter, re-homing assistance and funds for medical treatment for more than 200 bulldogs each year. These dogs come to us from animal shelters, other rescue groups and owners who wish to surrender their purebred bulldogs. Our network consists of many volunteers who foster, do home checks, transport and place bulldogs who come into our program into homes in the Southern California area. We rely entirely on donations for support.

Rescued bulldogs comes in all shapes, sizes, ages and with their own unique personalities that are taken into consideration when they are ready for homes. SCBR is not a shelter. It is comprised of dedicated volunteers who give their time freely to help bulldogs in need. Expenses for spays/neuters, inoculations, veterinary health checks, and all surgeries are paid for out of our own pockets or from donations and fund-raising.

Southern California Bulldog Rescue is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. It depends on donations, gifts and grants in order to continue providing care for bulldogs and placing bulldogs in need. Because SCBR is a nonprofit charity registered with the IRS (#20-8382808), your donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the IRS tax code.

The rescue volunteer’s job can be very difficult and time-consuming. While not everyone can make the commitment to the full range of volunteer services (providing foster care, screening applicants, doing home inspections, making placement decisions, etc), there are many things you can do:

- Professional Dog Training
- Web & Print Services
- Fundraising
- Sponsoring a Dog
- Dog Bathing, Walking
- Marketing and PR
- Grant Writing
- Pledging Monthly or Donating!

To make a donation, send a check to:
SoCal Bulldog Rescue, PO Box 10313, Santa Ana, CA, 92711

"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.."
