Your adoption donation

There is an adoption donation of $350 per dog. Bichon Rescue of Orange County is an all-volunteer community of animal lovers who work together to save and re-home senior dogs in need. Your adoption donation helps to pay for medical treatment, grooming, food, and all of the expenses associated with fostering the dogs. Your adoption donation is not to pay for the medical care of the dog you are adopting; previous donations covered those costs. Your donation allows us to continue our mission of saving as many lives as possible through our rescue and adoption efforts.

We are organized as a non-profit 501(c)3 public charity and any contributions are tax-deductible. Our taxpayer ID is EIN 47-1918280.
