Where Can I Put an English Bulldog up for Adoption?
You can put your English Bulldog up for adoption online, surrender him to a shelter or rescue, or let someone you know adopt. It's always a good idea to understand all of the different options that are available, so you can figure out which option works best for you and your dog.
Rescues and Shelters
These types of organizations are often some of the first things that spring to mind when someone has to give up their dog. However, they aren't the only options. Shelters and rescues both try to do their best to get dogs adopted by good owners. However, there is no guarantee that your English Bulldog will be adopted when you surrender him to one of these facilities.
In the case of rescues, they have no-kill policies, so your dog could stay there for the rest of his life. Shelters on the other hand may have to euthanize your dog after a certain period. It's never something they take lightly or want to do, but they have a limited amount of space available. Rescues, on the other hand, are often full and unable to take on new dogs.
When you give up your English Bulldog to one of these organizations in the hope they'll be adopted, you also have to pay a surrender fee. This fee can vary based on your location, but it's usually $50 and up.
Online Adoption Options
You'll also find pet adoption sites online that could be a good choice to consider. When you use a site like Rehome as an owner, you won't have to pay a fee. When someone adopts through Rehome, they only have to pay a small rehoming fee, which would be about the same as when they adopt through a shelter or rescue.
Rehome aims to make the process as easy as possible for owners and adopters. As an owner, you'll write up a bio for your dog and add pictures and videos. This serves to provide potential adopters with more information about your English Bulldog, so they can decide whether they might like to adopt or not. It's important that you're honest in the bio about any issues that your dog might have, such as a health problem. This helps to ensure that only those who can properly care for your dog will fill out an application.
Once you start to receive applications, you can review them and choose someone to adopt. You have a lot of control over who gets to adopt your dog when you use this method. It's fast, easy, and safe for your pet.
Rehoming with Friends and Family
Sometimes, you'll have a family member or a friend that's looking for a dog and who would love to adopt your English Bulldog. Just make sure that they have the capability to provide your dog with all of the care and attention that's needed. Rehoming with someone you know can give you some peace of mind.
