We dream of a world where rescue is no longer needed
For the love of the breed
We are a not-for-profit
organization that was founded on the idea of helping Bulldogs in need of
rescue. We were founded by Dixie’s Mom,
Kim (please read Dixie’s story here).
We are a small
group of volunteers who love and care about the welfare of Bulldogs. Our goal
is to rehabilitate and re-home Bulldogs who come to us from animal shelters,
families, puppy mills, breeders and other less than ideal situations.
We are only able to
accept English Bulldogs. We place them in foster homes all over Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky, where they are
cared for and loved until a suitable home is found. We all have fulltime jobs,
families and other commitments, but we continue to make room in our hearts and
homes for unwanted and neglected Bulldogs in need of rescue.
That is why we are
especially happy to find new volunteers who share our commitment to the breed.
If you would like to support us by helping with our work don't hesitate to
contact us with questions. Better still,
fill out an online Volunteer Application or make a donation. A helping hand is
always greatly appreciated!
