Buffie Allie AngieAnyone who has owned a Bichon Frise can attest to the amazing joy they give to their human and canine companions. They seem to have one sole purpose in life: to love and be loved by all. To know a Bichon is to love a Bichon … it’s just that simple.Buffy
Bichon Rescue Brigade (BRB) is an all-volunteer group whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and place Bichon Frise and Bichon Frise mixed dogs into responsible and caring homes – as well as providing a resource for public education on the breed and responsible dog ownership. We are located in Southern California and focus our efforts on dogs in need in our area. We do adopt nationwide, but we ask adopters to travel to Southern California to meet and adopt their new pups, and then travel home with them. We do not “ship” pups.

BRB advocates for Bichon Frises and their friends who have been lost or abandoned, or whose owners could no longer care for them.

  • All BRB pups are vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered.
  • We are a foster-based rescue, and our pups are placed into loving foster homes while we find their perfect forever family.
  • Each dog’s overall health and activity level is evaluated, as it is important that we place healthy dogs into happy homes.
  • We strive to match each dog with its “forever” home, based on the mutual needs of each dog and its prospective adopter.
  • Adopters must complete an Adoption Application and pass a Home Safety Check as a prerequisite to adopting one of our BRB pups.

We participate in animal rescue fairs and events, and work to educate our communities about the importance of spaying/neutering and its impact toward controlling canine over-population.

Bichon Rescue Brigade is an all-volunteer non-profit organization under IRS section 501(c)(3) and relies solely on donations to care for the dogs we rescue. Donations made to BRB are tax-deductible. (Please consult your tax advisor.) Donations are greatly appreciated, and no amount is too large or too small.
