We are proud of our close association with the Bulldog Club of America Rescue Network (BCARN). BCARN is the national non-profit organization that assists hundreds of rescue volunteers across the US with their mission of helping Bulldogs in need.

BCARN established the nation's "best practices" and code of ethics for English Bulldog rescue and provides financial assistance to local volunteers across the country.

All of adoptaBull English Bulldog Rescue's Directors are active BCARN members and Greg Shives serves as the National Board Vice President and Division II Coordinator.

We're a dedicated group of volunteers and are looking for others to join us in our important mission. While we require English Bulldog ownership experience to volunteer as a foster home, let's talk if you have a passion for the breed and want to help us with your skills.

adoptaBull respects the time that our volunteers devote to helping us achieve our mission and we are committed to providing the best volunteer experience.

we walk our talk when we say Adopt-Don't Shop.  We don't buy from auctions. All of our Bulldogs are surrendered from owners or shelters seeking a better option
