The Bulldog Club of America, working with the American Kennel Club and the other National Breed Clubs, is a part of the largest dog rescue group in the Country. BCA supports our affiliated organization, Bulldog Club of America Rescue Network (BCARN), a non-profit organization with IRS 501(c)(3) status. You can view the BCARN website HERE.
The BCA Rescue Network is organized into local "rescue groups" of one or more individuals who are working toward these objectives.
To accept Bulldogs whose owners can no longer keep them and find responsible, stable, loving new homes for them.
To rehabilitate Bulldogs before placement by providing necessary medical treatment and training to increase the chances of successful placement.
To help reduce the population of unwanted pets by ensuring that all rescued Bulldogs are spayed/neutered before being placed.
To place Bulldogs in suitable homes as soon as reasonably possible, so they can start their "new lives" quickly.
To thoroughly screen applicants before making placement decisions.
To inform prospective adopters about the rescue program and the requirements for taking care of bulldogs.
