We make every effort to return phone calls and answer email timely, however, that is not always possible. We are a very small group of volunteers working to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome bulldogs to the best of our ability. We have many, many dogs to help and, sadly, only a fraction as many volunteers. We answer your inquiries in between fostering dogs in our homes, taking care of our own dogs and families, and then we have what we call our “real” jobs! It may seem to you that you are a wonderful candidate and there are so many dogs who need homes and you wonder, “why don’t they just call and give me a dog? I’m willing and there are dogs in need!” The answer is that it’s not that simple.
We have to foster and evaluate the dog first, and get them vetted and if necessary, schedule whatever surgery they may need. Then we start to look at applications, carefully looking for what each specific dog may need. We choose applications to fit a specific dog’s needs, then check your veterinary references, personal references and then we schedule a home visit. If we haven’t contacted you, it doesn’t mean we have rejected your application, it just may mean that we haven’t gotten to your application yet or haven’t finished reviewing it yet.
It’s not first come, first serve – we focus on the dog’s needs and then find the perfect family for that specific dog. An application that is not perfect for a Bubba might be perfect for an Abby! Think of it as match.com for dogs- we’re playing matchmaker here, too!!
