We love FBRN! We got our second Frenchie through them and are so grateful. The adoption process is very thorough and makes clear that their goal is to find these dogs forever homes. We continue to appreciate the support their community gives us when Frenchie related questions come up.

I adopted a wonderful, older girl named Laura from FBRN. She had been used as a breeder and had so much love to give. I will be forever grateful to FBRN for choosing me to adopt her.

I was one of the first volunteers to join FBRN in 2001. I have witnessed them performing miracles with sick dogs, frightened dogs, behaviorally challenged dogs and more. They are honest and do GREAT work!

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.

I adopted a dog from the French Bulldog Rescue Network in 2012, and was very impressed. All dogs are fully vetted and assessed for behaviors, so you know what you're getting when you adopt. The foster parents stay in touch with the adoptive families - it is clear the volunteers care about the dogs and the rescue.

I adopted a special needs French Bulldog from FBRN in February 2013. After a somewhat rigorous application process, phone interview, and home visit, I was selected as the lucky new mom for my girl! Since this was my first dog-owning experience as an adult, I'll admit I was a little overwhelmed at first. The support system for "grads" at FBRN is phenomenal, and thanks to having my *many* questions answered by more experienced Frenchie owners, my dog is now thriving in her new environment. I really can't say enough good things about my experience with FBRN. Whenever anyone expresses an interest in getting a French Bulldog, I tell them FBRN is the way to go. Adopt, don't shop!

French Bulldog Rescue Network is a solid organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming French Bulldogs. The leaders and volunteers are highly organized and have instilled integrity as a key part of their mission. As a volunteer of three years, I'm always impressed with how thorough the screening processes are for everything from the intake of a dog, new volunteers, foster homes, veterinary care and clear through the fostering home, to the selection of adopters and placement of adopted dogs.
Even though this is an international organization, including the U.S.A. and Canada, the volunteers and staff are in effective communication, organized in the most impressive ways, and everyone is supportive of each other in order to provide the best care for the rescued dogs.
Everyone takes great pride in their jobs as volunteers and staff, and even greater pride in helping at-risk dogs get a chance at a better, healthier and longer life.

I have adopted 2 FBD's from FBRN. I am also a volunteer who just today , has her first foster adopted! This is an extremely dedicated group that is completely focused on rehabilitating/ rehoming dogs and doing whatever needed for EVERY French Bulldog that is surrendered to them. With no regard to age, health, condition, etc. they are the best!

I adopted my sweet pup from FBRN several years ago, and I recommend this organization wholeheartedly! I had a fantastic experience, particularly with his wonderful foster mom, who we still send updates and pictures to years later. My dog has changed my life! FBRN gave me such a wonderful gift. The application process was thorough and required effort on both sides, but I strongly support their system of applications, vet references, and home visits for any potential adopters. Frenchies are complicated dogs to care for, and if someone isn't willing to go through the process, they are not likely good candidates for Frenchie parents. I found everyone at FBRN to be thoroughly professional, responsive, and kind.

In addition to the initial adoption and support, FBRN provides trememdous, ongoing support through a network of volunteers and others who've adopted dogs through their organization. Anytime I have a question or concern about my dog's health, diet, behavior, etc., there's always plenty of folks with advice and encouragement! Plus, we get to update each other with cute pictures and stories. It's a wonderful community.

FBRN is an amazing organization that helps French bulldogs. The group has the most thoughtful and caring volunteers that go above and beyond to ensure the frenchies are safe, treated, and adopted out to the best homes. I've personally witness the way they saved my foster from euthanasia and brought her back to having a wonderful life - including getting her a custom wheelchair cart!

I have been a volunteer with FBRN for only a short time but I must say I am impressed with the professionalism of this organization. I am currently fostering a special needs french bulldog and our support system is amazing! Every single member of this group plays an integral role in our combined effort to rescue, raise money, rehab and rehome these wonderful dogs. I am honored to be a part of FBRN and welcome any and all interested in volunteering or adoption to check us out!

I've been following this organization for several years and recently became a volunteer. The level of professionalism, organization, and care they provide to the animals far exceeds anything I had expected. The volunteers are knowledgeable, dedicated and (best of all) funny and friendly. Everyone shares their knowledge and experience so the dogs receive the best care possible. It's truly a "team" atmosphere where everyone shares in the joy of seeing a foster find it's perfect forever home!
