French Bulldogs come into French Bulldog Rescue Network from many different sources: commercial breeding kennels, import brokers, public shelters, private rescue groups, or Good Samaritans trying to save the life of a stray. However, most of our French Bulldogs are owner surrenders, turned over by owners who can no longer keep them. Whatever the reasons, we do not question or criticize your motives for giving up your French Bulldog. We are here to help.

Life has thrown you a curve ball and you must surrender your French Bulldog – what now?

When you are ready, contact a volunteer in your region. Don’t be embarrassed and don’t hesitate to make that first contact. Surrendering your pet can be a difficult decision to make, and we respect that. We will not pressure you to keep your dog OR to give up your dog. We will answer questions you might have that might help you to make an informed decision. We will ONLY take custody of your French Bulldog IF and WHEN you are ready.
