Please read the following information before filling out an adoption application:
The primary mission of Bichon Rescue of Orange County (BROC) is to help Bichons and other small non-shedding breeds that can no longer be cared for by their owners. If you would like to adopt one of the bichons we have rescued, please complete our online application by clicking on the link below.
Our adoption process will include the following steps:
BEFORE YOU SUBMIT AN APPLICATION
Due to the volume of applications we receive, we cannot process applications that are not completed with the required information. An incomplete application will be discarded without notification. Additionally, we do not adopt pups to applicants who have an unfenced pool or water feature. Do not apply if you have an unfenced pool or water feature. If you plan to fence your pool or water feature please do so BEFORE applying.
Each pet has a bio. Please read through the bio BEFORE applying. Many of our pups have specific needs, and if you have not read their bio and are not aware of their needs, we will not process your application.
For example, if the bio states that the pup must not be in a home with small children and your application states that you have a toddler living in the home, we will discard your application without notice. Specific requirements such as this are non-negotiable. Please DO NOT apply for a pup in which you do not meet the requirements. If you do not hear back from us, it is because you did not meet the requirements of the pup stated in the pups bio, or you have an unfenced pool or water feature.
Our adoption donation is $350 for dogs over one year. For puppies, under one year, the adoption fee is $500. Bichon Rescue of Orange County is an all-volunteer community of animal lovers who work together to save and re-home senior and special needs dogs. 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.
OUT OF TOWN ADOPTIONS:
We are located in Southern California in Orange County. Out of the area adoptions are limited to our three border states: Arizona, Nevada and Oregon.
Persons living inside our limited areas but outside of Orange County are welcome to adopt, but must be prepared to provide their own transportation to visit the dog and pick up the dog. In place of the required home safety evaluation, applicants must provide a letter of recommendation from their veterinarian and at least one letter of recommendation from another pet professional (i.e. groomer, animal trainer, or local humane organization) on letterhead. In addition, please provide photos of your home and property that will show where the dog will be sleeping, fencing etc. If you have other pets, copies of vaccinations and proof of spay/neuter is required prior to adoption. If you have children and/or other dogs, it is highly recommended that you bring the whole family to the appointment.
