Our mission is to save the lives of bichons and bichon mixes who are relinquished, neglected, abandoned, or brought into the shelter system. We foster, socialize, train, provide medical care and place our furkids as cherished family members in forever homes. We, and our furkids, enrich and support the families who adopt from us and include them as part of our greater bichon community.
Our organization achieved over 400 dog rescues and adoptions during 2014.
