California rescue groups that feature Bichon Frises are RescueMe.org and BichonRescueBrigade.com. RescueMe.org has been involved with the rescue of over 2,000 Bichon Frises. This website features a large photo bank of available dogs in the California area.
Each listing has information about the dog’s temperament and compatibility with other dogs or pets, a contact phone number and a health check that details neutering or specific problems. The site features purebred Bichons as well as Bichon mixes.
BichonRescueBrigade.com is a foster-based group comprised of volunteers who rescue, rehabilitate and place Bichons and Bichon mixes into appropriate and responsible homes. This group also provides resource information about the breed so that potential adopters can assess if it is the right breed for them. A visitor to the site can fill out an application and, once approved, meet an available dog with the group’s placement team. There is a $350 adoption fee and a slightly higher cost for dogs under one year of age.
