I volunteer for FBRN for about 6 years. I transported, fostered, adopted, donated, and will continue to do so for as long as I can. FBRN is amazing! The amount of effort that goes into helping Frenchies that are lucky enough to to find its way to FBRN is astounding. We work as a team, helping abandoned, unwanted or sick dogs that otherwise would be PTS and I am proud to be a part of something as great as this rescue! Do not support puppy mills! Do not buy, adopt!

Do you have an close friend that you don't get to see often but yet know that no matter what this friend will come to your rescue no matter what? Well, FBRN is like that. I am FBRN Volunteer and Frenchie lover. I foster and and have adopted our foster, Lola from FBRN. FBRN is extremely dedicated to make sure that every dog that comes across has excellent care, latest treatment options and best foster parents possible. The amount of support and dedication is truly incredible. Because of their support Lola went from bold hot mess to a beautiful healthy looking in just a couple of months. A+ across the board.

Adoptions with FBRN are a JOKE! We have applied many times and weren’t even called once despite having met all the requirements listed in the applications - and then some. No doubt they have someone in mind prior to listing. The whole process is an unregulated, unscrupulous sham. Ended up with a breeder thanks to FBRN. Never EVER again. Paid close to $4k for a puppy - money which I could have offered to FBRN.

I have only been a volunteer for a couple of years. In that time I have learned from so many of the people who volunteer and help with this organization. It is very well organized and professionally run with nothing in mind but helping Frenchies find their forever homes. Many things are done for these dogs before they are ready to be adopted but it is all done with love and with the help of people who donate to get them the medical and proper care they need to find their perfect homes. Without the help of so many volunteers and those who are so very generous and donate to help us, many of these dogs would not survive. I am so very proud to be associated with this organization.

We adopted our French Bulldog from FBRN in 2014. It was and continues to be the most amazing experience. I continue to be in contact with his foster mom and the FRRN grads and families Facebook page keeps the adoptive families in touch providing the ability to get advice and support when needed.

Application process was fairly simple, straight forward and gave me a chance to be creative.
I was actually selected as a candidate and I was impressed with the phone and in person interviews. This organization is very well organized and the network very tight. The amount of care that goes into the foster program is unbelievable. The post adoption network is also very vocal; sharing different tips, photo's and experiences that the dog(s) have in their respective "furever" homes.

We filled an application and were chosen to adopt our sweet little Brooklyn (aka Seneca). We are forever grateful to her foster mom for choosing us to take this girl home. We cannot believe that someone could have given her up ❤️ FBRN had someone come out to vet us and our home. We were nervous! Our Frenchie, Bogart, was happy to have a sister to play with, and thanks to the FBRN protocol to introduce them properly, Brooklyn loves him too. Thank you FBRN !!!!

We adopted Max (aka Slider 2013) from FBRN. They were so thorough with their interviews and I can't say enough good things about them. I was asked to attend the FBRN May summer bash to see another dog I was interested in. My hubby and I signed in and off we were to see all the Frenchies and parents you could dream of. It was them I met Letitia and she told me about Max. She said the other doggie was not a friendly kind of dog and that Max was a doggie that need a lot of love and attention as he like to eat things. We then went over to him and never left his side. His foster mommy Andrea explained what he had gone through and that he was not the easiest fellow to deal with, but he would be your love if you let him. 2 years later we still have him and I just adore him. We are ready to adopt another frenchie and I am even thinking of flying to another stat to adopt a pretty girl in Colorado if her foster mommy will let me. You see----the make sure you are the right match for their baby as they have to make sure it is a perfect match for everyone---and to make sure the frenchie is never going to have to leave their forever home. This is by far the best placement and loving group I have ever dealt with and we have adopted boxers and pugs. Other non-profits need to follow their code of ethics and placement as I honestly cannot say how awesome they are!! If you want a frenchie and are willing to wait for your perfect placement and know exactly what type of dog you are trying to adopt. Well FBRN is it

I adopted my girl, Ginny, in 2013. She is a diaper baby and FBRN checked me out to be sure I could handle a special gal. They educated me on possible future for her. Ginny's foster mom is the greatest. Such a loving woman. Ginny has been the best gift for me. With all the loving care she received she is a happy and crazy funny gal. FBRN really cares for their Frenchies and only wants the best for their future forever homes.

Hello, I adopted Ginny in 2013. The FBRN had received her at 4 months of age and had taken care of her through her spayed, FHO surgery and cherry eye surgery. They did all the surgeries and nursed her to where she could walk and run for the first time in her life. Her foster mom was the greatest. I adopted her at 10 months of age and this little girl is full of life and personality. She wears a diaper, which really is not a big issue in her care, as I am so in love with this little girl. FBRN is the best for taking care of Frenchies in need and taking the best care possible of them to ultimately get them in forever homes.

We first came across FBRN in 2014 when we were looking to adopt a new fur baby. Even though the process was very simple, the organization is very thorough and does everything it can to ensure that the pups go to homes where they will truly be cared for. Four years later, we continue to keep up with FBRN through social media and will not hesitate to contact them again when we are ready to expand our family.

Wow where do I begin? Everything about FBRN is wonderful! I adopted my Ellie Mae in 2010, drove from NJ to TN to bring her home. Before Ellie came into my life I had applied to adopt other dogs but was not selected. I started to get disappointed and wondered why I wasn’t being selected but I still would check their site and if one of the dogs seemed to fit our family I would still try. Finally Ellie was going to be part of my family! Well after getting Ellie I saw how much care, cost and organization went into each and every one of these dogs and that’s why adoption wasn’t just a quick here’s your dog process! I saw how many people came together to make things happen for all the dogs and all are volunteers! Because of FBRN I have my Ellie and I have met lifelong friends. I go to local events for FBRN and continue to meet such great people and pups.

I adopted my girl Daya from FBRN. Her transition to my home and specifically the resident frenchie was anything but smooth but everyone was incredibly supportive and willing to help me in any way they could. The organization is run by the most caring and compassionate individuals as evidenced by the lengths they go through to rehabilitate every dog that comes into their care no matter how dire their condition may seem. I thank FBRN everyday for trusting me to care for Daya. Everything about the process was positive and I will continue to support FBRN in any way that I can, they are truly amazing.

After the loss of our you frenchie (Oscar) and a horrible battle with a large on line puppy broker. We decided to adopt. We researched fbrn and fell in love with everything they do. We thought we would get a dog on the first try.
We ended up with the perfect special needs guy on the third application process.
We became volunteers after the first try. We are here for the love of the breed.
If you put the animals outcome first. You will endure the process and end up with the perfect match for you and yours..
It doesn't get better than fbrn. Read all the info on the website.

I hope the person who would rather go to a puppy mill than try again for a rescue dog reads this.
Try Purebred breeders.com.
I made that mistake. They wont ask you any questions. But they will send you a sick or even the wrong dog, My frenchie developed terminal cancer at two. The replacement dog was deaf. with features that should have been red flagged by purebred.
I am currently trying to adopt a dog through fbrn. If I don't get the dog, Then they probably found a better match. (I hope not).

I am a volunteer with the FBRN and just finished my first foster. I couldn't be more impressed with this organization. The dedication that they have to the animals in need is second to none. My particular foster was in dire shape when he first came to me, and they spared no expense for the expensive nights in the ICU, diagnostics, surgeries, medications, and supplements. The FBRN volunteer community is strong and supportive.

They really care about their babies and go out of their way to make sure the fit between the baby and the forever home is good for both involved.

They answer questions, make recommendations and are so happy to see posts on how well their kids are doing in their new homes.

They are very truthful in every part of the process about the kids.

I will never recommend this rescue to anyone. I watched a friend and colleague who is a veterinary professional, financially stable, owns their own home and has a ton of frenchie experience get denied not once but twice for a dog from this rescue. I have no idea who would be more well qualified. I don't know what kind of homes you are sending these dogs to if that's the kind of person you deny. Horrible.

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.

This a story about a little 2 yr old spina bifida pied princess frenchie we had the honour of adopting form FBRN 5 yrs ago. Chaya had a significant spinal curve and required diapers. She walked for most of her 7yrs, till her last months, while battling a protein losing disease that wasted her muscles. Through out everything, her love of live, spirit and joy was contagious. I fell in love with Chaya watching the videos that were posted of her...I would burst out laughing with joy ..my husband would come and sit and watch and we fell totally in love with her. Totally utterly in love. We were so fortunate to be chosen to be Chaya's companions. She made our live's fuller and richer and a hell of a lot more fun with her diva can do attitude and a smile that stretched from ear to ear.

FBRN saves lives, many would have put Chaya down without a second thought. FBRN saved her life and many many others. I volunteered with them before adopting Chaya and continue to do so now. It is a small way of trying to help and give back to this great organization.

FBRN is a very ethical organization. Midway through our adoption, the dog we were interested in had a health issue develop. They could have hid this from us but instead they put a hold on the adoption until they resolved the problem at their own cost, and only allowed the process to continue after she was healthy. They have helped so many vulnerable dogs!

I adopted my sweet, sweet Chloe from FBRN. Their volunteers are exceptional! Chloe's foster mom had her for six months and helped nurse her back to good health allowing Chloe to become comfortable in her home and part of her family. They are thorough in their screening of adoptive forever families. My screening included; a Skype call, an hour plus visit to my home and several phone calls. Chloe came to me in fantastic health and with enough of her food and medicine to get me through several days. Once the adoption was complete her foster mom and the director of adoptions remained available and very willing to help through any questions and growing pains we had together. I would highly recommend this non-profit!

We adopted from FBRN 9 years ago and can't imagine how different our lives would be without our beloved frenchie Dash! Over the years I have continued to follow FBRN and am constantly impressed with their dedication- they truly go above and beyond and take in dogs who need a LOT of care. They also do an amazing job matching up families and dogs- I'm always so happy when I see an older dog, or dog with several medical or behavioral issues get adopted- that's not easy to do, but it happens regularly through FBRN! They have awesome fundraisers and a hilarious blog and clearly care SO much about what they do. Whenever someone meets Dash and says they've always wanted a frenchie- FIRST I remind them that French Bulldogs aren't for everyone and SECOND I tell them to check out FBRN. :) Thank you for all you do!!

My frenchie, Locksley, was adopted from FBRN last year. I had him as a foster for almost two years, while we worked on behavior and a few medical issues. The support I received from this organization was incredible! I especially appreciated the little touches, like Bark Boxes and their program to have volunteers send care packages. The provided for all his medical care, as well as personal support for me through the process. Together, we were able to take a dog with little chance for placement, and turn him into a success story. His one year adopt-a-versary is coming up, and we couldn't be happier!

The absolute worst adoption service to deal with. Period. They have taken our "donation" money on several times now and never given us the light of day. They prejudice young working couples (preferring "someone who stays at home all day"), who live in urban environments ("a fenced yard is a must"), and who do not currently have pets ("veterinarian contact information" required). Each time we "donate" along with our application, the application closes immediately afterwards. They wait to collect as much funds from each adoptable dog as possible, already with an adoptive family in mind, before closing the window without word to any of the attempted adopters. I would rather take my money to the seediest puppy mill in the region than "donate" another dime to these people.

Match.com and E-Harmony have nothing on FBRN, where we found our perfect match! We got a call from Nessie's foster mom (the matchmaker) asking us for a "date". We wanted to jump through the phone, but tried to play it "cool"! Just a day later, we were able to meet the little Noodle - and it was love at first sight. Nessie is a LOVER! We were so lucky to be able to adopt her. FBRN is an organization that truly cares about the well being and happiness of the dogs entrusted to them. It has been 6 wonderful years with Nessie now, and I have since become a volunteer for FBRN and have expanded our family by another 3 (uhm, cough, yes, 3!) FBRN Frenchies. The other volunteers and people, who have adopted from FBRN feel like family - we're so glad to be able to be a part of this wonderful group!

My life was forever changed in 2008 when I adopted my frenchie from FBRN. After adopting her, I soon realized just how much blood, sweat, and tears FBRN puts into these wonderful little animals, and I felt that I had to pay it forward and become a volunteer myself. This is such a great organization, and I find myself recommending them to people interested in adopting frenchies all the time. It never fails to amaze me how well-managed this organization is, especially for being run solely by volunteers. Such a great group!

When my French Bulldog Rosie passed away, I was devastated beyond belief. My other Frenchie Maggie missed her fur sister as well, so I decided to find her a companion. I was fortunate to find out about FBRN and kept looking for a foster that would be a potential match. I was lucky to be selected as the forever mom for foster Loki (now Jack)! Before the adoption was finalized, an FBRN volunteer did a thorough background check and home visit. On December 24, 2010, I picked my fur baby up from his foster mama and he fit right in.

The FBRN team is amazing - they are always available for advice on health or behavior issues. They stand behind the dogs - if for any reason an adopter can no longer care for their FBRN grad, the rescue will take the dog back. FBRN goes above and beyond - fosters are evaluated and given necessary medical treatment before adoption. They have wonderful events where alumni can get together and work to raise money for the fosters. I will be forever grateful to them for bringing my sweet Jack into my life.

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!

I contacted FBRN to apply for a French Bulldog. They absolutely did their homework to insure myself and my home would be a good home for a baby. After their approval I was introduced to the sweetie that wanted to be mine.

Everything they said about my little girl was true and I knew exactly what to expect, My sweet Elle came with her vet records, supplements, toys, bed and harness and leash. Her foster moms let me know her schedule for feeding and how much time she liked to walk. They also knew she liked to take a toy on a walk. My little girl is a happy healthy forever kid and FBRN was very honest and careful with the placement

We adopted our Queenie (Winnie '14) in September of 2014. FBRN was recommended to us by knowledgeable dog trainers and Frenchie lovers in our area. The process was professional and thorough. I didn't expect so many telephone interviews and a home visit! This told me that they were very serious about placing their charges in the right home. We drove from North Georgia to middle Florida to get Queenie. When we picked Queenie up, the foster mom shared very detailed notes with us on the medical needs and behavioral quirks of our new addition. It was very obvious that the foster mom was very loving and took very good care of Queenie (Winnie) during the foster period. We were very impressed with the organization and have been more than happy with our little Queenie. This organization has very special, dedicated workers and volunteers to help orphaned Frenchies.

This rescue truly is a professionally run, fantastic organization that is ALL about the dogs. The network of people who make up FBRN are each dedicated to the health, welfare and future of every dog that 'comes through the doors'.
Having been involved as both a foster and an adopter I can tell you that it is a wonderful organization to deal with. All monies raised go directly to the frenchies and the support available to volunteers and adopters is unbelievable. I'm proud to be associated with FBRN and highly recommend checking it out.

What a wonderful organization! My fiancé and I really wanted a french bulldog but also really wanted to adopt a dog that needed a home. The FBRN is the perfect place to go! They are very selective in the adoption process which is a good thing! They make sure each dog goes to the right home. After applying for a few dogs on their website the perfect girl finally came along. We feel so blessed to have been selected to be her new parents.

The adoption process happen over the course of a month or so. We had a phone interview and then an in-person interview. They were so accommodating to our schedule and location. The best part of this organization are it's foster families! These doggies are taken care of so well. When we arrived to pick her up the foster family had a huge basket of goodies for us to take home. I could tell our girl was really cared for.

Its been 6 months since we adopted her and we are so happy. She is the best dog ever. We are so grateful to FBRN. We will continue to support them over the years and hopefully adopt another dog from them in the future!

We were lucky enough to find the French Bulldog Rescue Network when we began searching for a dog in 2011. I've always wanted a bulldog of some sort, but we were committed to adopting. My extensive pup search led to FBRN. From the first point of contact to our continued involvement in the FBRN Grad group on Facebook, this organization proves time and time again to be extremely impressive. I'm sure that many people find their rigorous adoption policies to be strict or unnecessary, but I always felt that EVERYTHING they do is for the health, safety and welfare of the animals that they serve. I also appreciate that their dogs live with foster families prior to adoption and because of this policy, we knew exactly what we were getting in our Moby. There were no surprises- other than I ended up loving him even more than I thought possible!

FBRN is amazing! They are honest, compassionate and they truly believe in rescue. From the moment you reach out and ask a question, to the entire adoption process, to long after you have adopted - they are there for you. You don't just rescue a French Bulldog in need, you join a forever family of support and understanding! They brought Jake into my life and I am eternally grateful! I was so inspired by them, I became a volunteer!

Earlier this year me and my family decided a French Bulldog would make the perfect addition to our family. While searching online for a breeder I came across the French Bulldog Rescue Network website. After reading about FBRN and the available dog's biographies we decided we would rather rescue than purchase a bulldog from a breeder. In February I flew out to Utah to pick up our sweet little girl. I was so impressed with FBRN that months later I decided I would like to be an active part of this organization. I am now a volunteer and look forward to helping Frenchies in need for many years to come.

I've been a volunteer with this organization since its inception. It's an incredibly rewarding group to be a part of, and everyone takes the well-being of the dogs in our care very seriously. Even as a past board member, my family had a home visit and vet check when we applied to adopt one of the rescues, and that's the way it should be. I will continue to volunteer for FBRN as it is very well run and I am very proud to be a part of it.

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!

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.
