Review for Bichon Furkids Rescue, La Costa, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!
