FBRN's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home French Bulldogs in need from commercial breeding kennels, import brokers, public shelters, private rescue groups, owners or Good Samaritans. Our organization is comprised 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 was created in 2001, and is an independent, North American rescue organization, not affiliated with any AKC breed club. Our purpose is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome Frenchies in need. The French Bulldog Rescue Network exists solely to address the growing problem of homeless French bulldogs.

FBRN maintains an extensive network of state contacts across the United States and Canada, and an even larger network of volunteers, foster homes, transporters, home-checkers, and family and friends working behind the scenes. We are grateful to everyone who donates time, effort and money to our cause!
