Review for French Bulldog Rescue Network a Nonprofit Corporation, Glen Allen, VA, USA
My little girl Zoe (2014 FBRN Grad Kourtney) was given up when she was six years old and was lucky enough to find her way to FBRN. Zoe was a tiny package with a big medical problem: megaesophagus. FBRN got her checked out from head to toe, and wrote a thorough description of Zoe and her medical and emotional needs. I just fell in love with her tiny grumpy face instantly. I wrote an impassioned application for her, in which I explained my experience with brachycephalic breeds and my willingness to cater to Zoe's special needs. The organization followed up with multiple interviews (from the foster mom, and the regional coordinator), and an in-home visit/interview from a local volunteer. FBRN's biggest priority was making sure that little Zoe was going to be safe, and loved in her new home, and I appreciated how much care the organization took. I was lucky enough to be chosen as Zoe's mom, and I flew to Louisiana from Washington to scoop my little nugget up! FBRN provided ample information and documentation on how to do a slow intro of Zoe to my other Frenchie, Louis, and had me sign an agreement promising that if for ANY reason I was no longer able to care for Zoe, that I would give her back to FBRN, because once FBRN takes in a pup, they are committed to that pup for life. I think that's so beautiful. I love this organization of passionate volunteers that care for this breed with so much love and dedication, and welcome new parents into the fold with open arms and a Facebook group for FBRN alumni that puts the best Frenchie photos in my feed ALL the time. I heart FBRN, and am forever grateful to them for saving Zoe, and choosing me to be her mom.
