The application requests detailed personal information from you. TGLBR members may obtain additional information about you through contacts with veterinarians, references and/or landlords. The information is used by TGLBR members solely in evaluating your qualifications to adopt a bulldog
A volunteer will review your application. The volunteer will contact you via email or phone to talk with you further. We will talk with your provided references and your veterinarian. Like the majority of rescues, we require regular vetting with vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm prevention. We work very hard to get our rescue pups back to a happy and healthy lifestyle and want to ensure that is carried forward after adoption!
We need all family members to be available for the home visit. This gives us all a chance to talk about rescue dogs, specific needs/concerns, and allows us to learn about your expectations for a rescue bulldog. If you have existing pets, it gives us a chance to meet them, too. We also check security of all areas of the home, including yards, fences, etc.
Finding Your Bully
Upon approval, we’ll ask you to review available dogs while we contact our foster families, describe your situation and see if we can create a potential match. Typically, we’ll send you photos and a short bio on a dog we think may work in your situation. If you are interested, we’ll put you in touch with the foster. You’ll then coordinate a time and location to meet the dog; we typically ask that adopters travel to the foster. Please keep in mind that not all bulldogs are listed as a dog may come into rescue andbe placed in an approved home very quickly. Please be patient during the process to find your bulldog. Our end goal is always to make the very best match for both the dog and the family. As an FYI, puppies are exceedingly rare in rescue. Typically, surrendered dogs are in the 4-7 years of age range.
