Bichon FurKids Rescue Mission Statement

Bichon FurKids believes that our animal companions deserve to be cherished, cared for and protected. We value the loving contribution they make to our lives and are dedicated to assisting these loyal companions in finding forever homes — and a second chance at life. We are strongly committed to making a difference in the lives of bichon frises, bichon mixes and the buddies with whom they play and do so through educating the community regarding the importance of spaying and neutering pets and being responsible pet owners.

Bichons FurKids is a charitable not-for-profit organization whose goal is to accept into rescue bichons, bichon mixes and other small dogs who can no longer live with their original owners. We believe that each life is meaningful and that all deserve to live out their lives as loving companions in forever homes. Our motto, Making a Difference in a Dog’s Life, reflects our commitment to assisting healthy, adoptable bichons find loving owners who can care for and protect them as long as they live. Our volunteers reflect our sincere desire to make that difference through their willingness to foster, transport and assist in the effort to rescue and re-home daily.
