I adopted two frenchies from them and now volunteer as a foster as well as transport. Love the thorough adoption process to make sure they go to great homes!
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 have fostered, transported and adopted with FBRN...amazing organization! My employer helped raise funds for a Texas Frenchie last year and we will continue to volunteer with FBRN!!!
FBRN is such an incredible organization! I first adopted, and then became a volunteer. The way the Network comes together is amazing. Although I haven't met the majority of the people in the Network, I feel as I have known them forever.
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.
We adopted our Frenchie boy Thorin from FBRN. From the phone interview to the home visit everyone was professional sand had the best interest of Thorin in mind. We are very blessed to be part of such an amazing organization and have been chosen to be his forever parents. We still keep in touch with his foster mom!

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 adopted Miss Lola from FBRN three years ago, she is one of the best things that has ever happen to us. All she wants is Love and she bring us so much more. I will never purchase a puppy again, always will adopt❤️
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 !!!!
FBRN is amazing. We adopted our Max Grad ‘13 Slider. This is by far the best organization we have adopted from. When you adopt from this organization you know exactly what you dogs needs are and what to expect going forward.
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
Review from Guidestar
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 are blessed to have been selected to be Millie’s furever home! We will always be greatful to FBRN for picking us. They are an amazing organization and doing such great things for Frenchies.
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.
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.
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).
Thank you fbrn for being so thorough
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.
FBRN is first and foremost concerned about the dogs. As it should be. Their network is engaged in the cause and unified. I have referred them to many.
I adopted my sweet girl from FBRN. They were very truthful and made sure I was the right person to adopt.
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.
