Meet our Happily Adopted Dogs

Bella in her new home 2021_edited.jpg

2 year old Emma has found her perfect home where she gets to spend all day with her new retired mom and dad.  

"We were so surprised and thrilled to get an email in late January, 2021 about a possible adoption of a 2 year old Bichon. The process of applying and being vetted for adoption was thorough and went smoothly.   BFCACT was easy to talk with and provided the guidance and information we needed to have a successful adoption. We are overjoyed with our new family member and highly recommend ths rescue for the care and attention they provide every step of the way to find the best match for the special dogs in their care."

The puppymill pair, Piper and Peter adopted by the Tippets are doing wonderfully and walking on leads.

Bella was turned in to a shelter twice for being too aggressive, but she just needed to find the right home.  Miss Bella's mom says she is such an amazing friend, protector, and companion. Bella expresses love in so many ways. Always the perfect alarm clock (same time every day) when it's time for her to eat and walk! Neighbors always greet her when we're out in the community. Bella loves to walk. Always the show dog!

Bella is our light...we're honored to have Bella in our lives. Thank you, Bichon Rescue!!

Join Us to Make a Difference


Freddie (Before)

Freddie's mom loved him very much but she became too old to take care of herself and Freddie.  It was a blessing for both of them...her to get care and for Freddie to find a good family to love him as much as he could love them.

Freddy (After)

A new family heard his story and immediately wanted to take him in.  They had 2 other bichons and all 3 of them always stayed close to their mom.  He was such a good boy and they loved him so much for many years.

Thumper (Before)

Thumper came to us from a county shelter when he was found on a busy road as a stray. He had at least 6 inches of matted hair and the shelter actually thought he was a female until they went to spay him.

Thumper (After)

Thumper is now very happy in his permanent foster home in Florida.  He has cataracts but that does not slow him down and he spends his days playing with as many toys as he can and chewing every treat available.

Danny & Mulligan (Before)

These two beautiful and fun loving boys came to rescue because their owner was ill and could no longer care for them.   These boys were loved, but they did not get the best care.   Both boys came to rescue with mites and a severe case of them.  

Danny & Mulligan (After)

With care, many baths and medication they were cured!  The boys were placed together and are now living happily and mite free!

Baby Shark (Before)

Baby Shark was a stray.  He was sent to the shelter and rescue was called to take him.   Baby Shark was a young boy with issues.   He would bite without any reason (at least we could not figure out why).  

Baby Shark (After)

Baby Shark has now found the right home and has adjusted well.
