Bullies 2 the Rescue is made up of a group of volunteers that I call my family. We rely solely on donations for the care and treatment of the rescued Bulldogs that are admitted to our organization. Bullies 2 the Rescue, Inc., (B2TR) is non-profit corporation with Federal Tax Exemption as a public charity under Section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
Our mission is to first ensure the safety and well-being of all English Bulldogs that we take in and second to educate the public in the care of English Bulldogs. We rehabilitate and re-home English Bulldogs that are sick, neglected, abused, or injured. Moreover, we provide a safe alternative to shelters for owners that are faced with the already difficult decision of finding a new home for their English bulldog. B2TR rescued 36 English Bulldogs our first year and since forming have rescued more than 700 dogs. The rescue has approximately 50-70 dogs in foster care at any given time.
We need DONATIONS as our Vet bills are staggering. We also need volunteers, supplies, and support for the care and treatment of the rescued English Bulldogs that we take into our organization.
We rescue English Bulldogs regardless of medical condition and as foster homes become available. Veterinary care is our biggest ongoing expense, even after our veterinary care providers extend rescue discounts.
We are an application ONLY rescue. We do not have adoption days although we will finalize adoptions at our events. ENGLISH BULLDOGS are very high maintenance creatures and require prior knowledge of their daily care and potential expenses of ownership. We strive to place our dogs in “Furever homes” that will be able to meet those needs and have the means to provide medical care in the future. Our adopters must be completely prepared and aware of what ENGLISH BULLDOG ownership entails BEFORE both parties agree to an adoption.
We do have a private shelter called the BUNGALOW but most of our dogs are fostered in private homes. (Please note that the Bungalow does not allow visitors or volunteers.) The rescued bulldogs are re-acclimated to family life and their temperament is assessed. After a brief foster period (minimum of 2 weeks) recommendations for placement are made based on information provided by our foster families. Foster families also give input throughout the adoption process.
Volunteers are needed all the time. If you live in the areas we cover (NC, SC, AL and VA) and want to be a part of a great organization please contact us. There are many ways you can help. We are always in need of foster homes. If you have always wanted an ENGLISH BULLDOG but have no ENGLISH BULLDOG experience, fostering for B2TR would be the perfect initiation to the breed. We provide all vet care, you provide the food and TLC. If you love English Bulldogs and want to be a part of a great organization please contact us. There are many ways you can help.
Help us so that we may help them…
