If I could give this rescue 100 stars I would! I have been looking for a pup to join our family for months. I looked into many rescues and many pups and this rescue found the perfect family member for us. From the first call I knew they truly wanted to find the right home for their pups. They asked questions about what we were looking for and asked about our home and environment. After going through the interview and application process, we were approved to adopt one of their amazing pups. Ironically the pup we thought we wanted to adopt was not the right fit for us. Marti who heads this amazing rescue recommended we adopt Poochie, and boy was she right. We were given information about the pup including whatever history they had. We were also told about his good and bad behaviors. They were completely honest and transparent. We drove 3 hours to meet him and the foster family that had him. Doug spent hours with us talking about Poochie and made sure he was comfortable with us and that we were with him. He told us there was no pressure and if the pup was not the right fit we did not have to take him. This was never an option for us because it was love at first sight! The rescue gave us photos, and a lovely care package including a new bed, toys, food, treats and a blanket. Doug even gave us a safety harness belt so that our pup would be more secure in the car. Marti and Doug continued to text us to make sure everything was working out and to answer our questions.
I have personally worked and volunteered for animal rescues and I have NEVER experienced such care and attention from the first call with both the adopter and adoptee.
We are already in love with our beautiful pup and I cannot thank them enough for trusting us with this beautiful gift. If you are considering adopting one of their pups or choosing a rescue to give a donation to,
I HIGHLY recommend Bichon Furkids!
We adopted a dog (and then I volunteered with this group). Their standards are excellent! They make sure the dog is a good fit and placed in a safe and loving home. Every effort is made to ensure their dogs find a "forever" family or home. If, by chance, problems arise with the dog, they quickly respond and make every effort to find a cause and solution.
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.
