Our adoption process is relatively simple. We require an application, a phone interview and a home visit by one of our dedicated B2TR volunteers prior to adopting one of our English or French bulldogs.
PHONE INTERVIEW - Please allow up to 5-6 weeks to receive a call, text or email to schedule your phone interview. During the Phone Interview our volunteer will go over bulldog related issues, proper food, your knowledge of bulldogs and what type of personality would fit best your in home.
HOME VISIT – We need all family members available for the home visit. This gives us all a chance to talk about rescue and we can 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 gates, fences and screen doors (if applicable).
FINDING YOUR BULLIE – Upon approval, you will be invited to a private Facebook group where you can see detailed bios on every bulldog currently ready for adoption. Once you express interest in a bulldog or two according to the instructions in the private group, we’ll put you in touch with the foster home to discuss the bulldog in even more detail.
We will then coordinate a day and time to adopt your new bulldog. Please keep in mind that not all bulldogs are listed. Sometimes a dog comes into rescue and is placed in an approved home very quickly. Please be patient during the process. We need to make sure we have the perfect match for you and our rescued bully. We also have an adoption event once a month at our Adoption Center (Carolina Pet Pantry, 323 Unionville Indian Trail Rd W Suite B, Indian Trail, NC 28079) This is a chance for approved homes to meet multiple bulldogs at once.
Important to Note:
Wonder what your adoption fee pays for? This is what it costs rescue to rehab a dog.
Please submit your application from a computer, not a smartphone. If you have problems submitting your application, please submit photos / screen shots of your application and email to email@example.com an explanation of your issue.
Please read the entire application before beginning and note we do require a $25 non-refundable application fee that you can pay by clicking the DONATE button at the top of this page. Some application fields may not allow you as much space as you'd like to provide lots of details. That's ok! We will gladly discuss those details on your phone interview. Thank you!
