Rescuing, Rehabilitating, and Rehoming French Bulldogs since 2001

FBRN’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome French Bulldogs in need from commercial breeding kennels, import brokers, public shelters, private rescue groups, owners or Good Samaritans. Our organization is composed solely of volunteers who nurture and foster these dogs as well as provide education and training. Our goal is to place healthy and happy French Bulldogs into forever homes. FBRN and FBV are both organizations are run solely by volunteers throughout the United States and Canada who open their homes and hearts to frenchies in need. As nonprofits, the rescues rely on the generous donations of people like you to help these dogs find their forever homes. Many of the dogs that find their way into rescue require veterinary treatment before they can be rehomed - some dogs even come into the rescues straight from the emergency room with severe medical issues. Both rescues have spent in excess of $100,000 in medical costs for the frenchies in their care. Anyone who has dealt with an unexpected emergency vet bill can see how the expenses can rack up quickly! There have unfortunately been times where the rescues have had to turn away dogs due to a lack of funding or foster homes. This is a decision that neither rescue ever wants to make. As we head into the new year and beyond, we’re hoping this won’t be the case for any frenchie!

Our Mission

Our mission is based on the three R’s: rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome. FBRN rescues French bulldogs in need from commercial breeding kennels, import brokers, shelters, private rescue groups, or Good Samaritans. FBRN is 100 percent volunteer-run, with volunteers in all fifty states and Canada. Our foster volunteers nurture these dogs, provide education, and training. Our goal is to place healthy, happy French bulldogs into their forever home.
