We specialize in rehoming bichons and other small, hypoallergenic mixed breeds who can no longer be cared for by their family. We also rescue senior bichons and those needing special veterinary care from local animal shelters. All our pups are cared for and housed with foster families throughout Orange County. All our volunteers’ efforts are directed toward providing our pups a loving and safe environment, quality veterinary care, and nutritional support and placing them in the best forever family possible.
Rehoming Your Pet Can Be a Difficult Decision
We believe that rescue is best when unforeseen circumstances make it necessary to rehome a pet. Shelters serve their purpose, but it can be terrifying for a family pet who has known love and comfort is suddenly living in a shelter environment. At Bichon Rescue of Orange County, all our pups live in loving foster homes, not in cages. Our fosters work with their pups on behavioral problems or special needs, and they get to know their personalities so they can be rehomed with the perfect adopter.
We know that having to rehome a pet can be heartbreaking. But if you are in this predicament and cannot find a friend or family member who can take your pup, please consider a rescue. We believe dogs need homes, not cages, and we do our best for every pup lucky enough to take the title “BROC Babe”.
Support The Pups
Bichon Rescue of Orange County is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization staffed solely by volunteers. We have NO payroll. Your donations pay for medical care, medications, food, and comfort items for the pups. For our pups that are unadoptable because of age, behavioral or medical reasons, your donations pay for their care in our Sunsetter Sanctuary Program, where they will live their lives with a forever foster in love and comfort.
By adopting a rescue dog instead of buying one, you are saving a life! Learn more about our available dogs for adoption and the process of welcoming one of them into your loving home. The kisses are free!
Assisting a rescue organization can be truly rewarding. We are always looking for dog lovers who can help in various ways. Whether you are local to Orange County or not, there are many ways to help.
All our pups live in loving foster homes until we find the perfect forever home. The more fosters we have, the more pups we can rescue. Please consider opening your heart and home to a pup in need.
We strive to make a perfect match for every pup and adopter. Here are some kind words from happy adopters and their BROC Babes.
