About Us

Board of Directors Photo for About Us TabBichon Rescue of Orange County California is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of neglected, abused, or otherwise homeless senior Bichon Frises, Bichon mixes and other small non-shedding breeds, placing them into permanent, stable, and caring forever homes.

We believe in the value of our senior citizens as adopters and are committed to their advocacy and support through our “Seniors for Seniors” focus.

We believe in promoting awareness of the need to spay and neuter pets, and of the importance of proper medical, dental and nutritional care.

We believe in cultivating a volunteer spirit in our youth and educating them about the importance of pet advocacy.

 

Senior Dogs

We believe senior dogs contribute positively to our quality of life and have much to teach us about patience, respect, responsibility, loyalty and unconditional love.

We believe every senior dog deserves to live out their golden years, months, weeks or even days in a place of love, security and peace.

We believe dogs are not a disposable commodity; rather, they depend on us to care for them through all stages of their lives.

We believe in providing educational support, advocacy, and sharing of best practices for those who support senior dogs.


Bichon Rescue of Orange County is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization.
