Mission: 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.
Programs: Our organization achieved over 400 dog rescues and adoptions during 2014.
Bichon Furkids has done a phenomenal job in rescuing hundreds, if not over a thousand already. Their plan is simple, place "unadoptable dogs" in homes with volunteers where their real personality comes out, evaluate them, and then match them with the right family.
One must consider that shelters are not a good place for dogs to be evaluated. You can have an otherwise gentle and sweet natured dog become "vicious" in a shelter when they smell death all around them. 99% of these dogs thrive in home situations and become gentle members of their adopted families.
