PLEASE READ THIS PRIOR TO APPLYING TO ADOPT:What do I need to do to adopt a Bulldog? First do your research! English Bulldogs are high maintenance and can be expensive to care for. After you have researched the breed and decided a bulldog is for you click here Get Application for an application. Once that is received you will be called by a volunteer and interviewed at which time we will set up a home visit. The home visit is just to ensure the environment is safe for a dog. Be sure to have locks on fence gates, be prepared to purchase a crate etc. Once the home visit is complete and you are an approved adopter we will try to match a bulldog to you. It is important to note, our dogs are rescues and most come with issues, many require medications for life and it is rare we get young dogs or puppies. Most are adults or Seniors. This process is not quick, our group operates with only volunteers so please be patient. This process could take up to and over a month. In addition, we have adoption fees for each of our dogs. These fees help pay for the vetting of ALL the dogs in the rescue and they are not negotiable! Some of the dogs we get are medical nightmares while others may require little to no medical care. Adoptions fees do not cover all of the expenses so we also have to raise funds and we accept donations as well.

Meet Gravy! Adopted!
Gravy is the sweetest boy! He is a 4 year old, Olde English Bulldogge. He loves humans and dogs but NO kitties or parrots! He came from a shelter in N. Alabama that was forced to close as they were not feeding the animals. Gravy has a scar on his side that we think is from being in a car accident with his previous owner. Gravy is heartworm positive but is going through the slow kill method which include giving antibiotics every third month and keeping him on Heartguard. He should be retested in 1 year. The slow kill method was recommended by his vet due since he has a light case of heartworms. His adoption fee is $200.
