FBRN is an incredible organization that goes above and beyond to ensure their foster dogs receive the best care possible and are placed with the appropriate forever families. From the detailed application process through the home visit and reference checks, FBRN puts the welfare of the dogs first and foremost. Not only that, but everyone I've interacted with in the organization is great. They're always there to answer questions, and are infinitely patient with new "parents". Anyone looking to add a Frenchie to their family should visit FBRN's website. Adopt, don't shop!

We went thru a rigerous application and approval process. This proved to us how important it is to FBRN to place their dogs in the proper homes. They really care. Very supportive and resourceful. Available beyond the adoption for information and support.

My Zoe,( aka Zenobia 2012) is the light of not only my life but every person she meets. When I finally tell them that she is a Rescue Dog, no one can believe it! Thank you FBRN for this wonderful service for these beautiful dogs. Or in my household, "Furry Child". Also thank you to the Foster Parents of these precious babies, (Zoe's was Kimm Pontiff) for all of their love, affection and attention to these loves before we get the chance to add them to our families. This is a great organization!

In 2014 we adopted a French bulldog from FBRN. From the very beginning we were very impressed with everyone, they were very thorough and provided the utmost support throughout the entire process. FBRN changed our lives for the best, providing us the opportunity to bring such an amazing puppy into our family. I will be forever grateful!

I adopted my dog from FBRN in 2014. They are wonderful and helped her so much. Even after her adoption they are always there to assist me when I have questions or need some help. A great charity I highly suggest supporting them in all their efforts!

I adopted my FBRN grad in 2010. This organization was amazing! They are very organized and take such good care of the Frenchies in their care while looking for new homes. I liked them so much that I signed up to be a volunteer the following year.

I adopted a dog from the French Bulldog Rescue Network in 2012, and was very impressed. All dogs are fully vetted and assessed for behaviors, so you know what you're getting when you adopt. The foster parents stay in touch with the adoptive families - it is clear the volunteers care about the dogs and the rescue.

I adopted a special needs French Bulldog from FBRN in February 2013. After a somewhat rigorous application process, phone interview, and home visit, I was selected as the lucky new mom for my girl! Since this was my first dog-owning experience as an adult, I'll admit I was a little overwhelmed at first. The support system for "grads" at FBRN is phenomenal, and thanks to having my *many* questions answered by more experienced Frenchie owners, my dog is now thriving in her new environment. I really can't say enough good things about my experience with FBRN. Whenever anyone expresses an interest in getting a French Bulldog, I tell them FBRN is the way to go. Adopt, don't shop!

French Bulldog Rescue Network is a solid organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming French Bulldogs. The leaders and volunteers are highly organized and have instilled integrity as a key part of their mission. As a volunteer of three years, I'm always impressed with how thorough the screening processes are for everything from the intake of a dog, new volunteers, foster homes, veterinary care and clear through the fostering home, to the selection of adopters and placement of adopted dogs.
Even though this is an international organization, including the U.S.A. and Canada, the volunteers and staff are in effective communication, organized in the most impressive ways, and everyone is supportive of each other in order to provide the best care for the rescued dogs.
Everyone takes great pride in their jobs as volunteers and staff, and even greater pride in helping at-risk dogs get a chance at a better, healthier and longer life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add more donors so FBRN wouldn't have to worry about how much it costs to get all these rescued dogs healthy.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
