WE RESCUE ENGLISH BULLDOGS

about us

our mission...to provide the best English Bulldog rescue care in Illinois, Southeastern Wisconsin and Northwestern Indiana.

our goal...
to reinvent English Bulldog Rescue in our service area and provide the best outcomes and experiences for the bulldogs in our care, for our adoptive homes and for our volunteers.

our credentials...all of our officers are members of the Bulldog Club of America Rescue Network (BCARN). Our leadership team has over 50 aggregate years of rescue experience and currently cares for 22 bulldogs as personal pets.

our philosophy...
we walk our talk when we say Adopt-Don't Shop. We do not buy bulldogs for our program. We abhor puppy mills and brokers and we do not believe it is ethical to compensate them for their unscrupulous trafficking of our breed.
Bulldogs are surrendered to our care by owners, shelters, legal authorities and puppy mills at no expense to rescue or our donors.

our plan...please read our Surrender, Adopt and Volunteer pages to learn more about how adoptaBull is reinventing English Bulldog Rescue for our clients and supporters.
