Bichon Rescue of Orange County


**If you have a specific pup you are interested in, please be sure to read their entire bio before filling out this application** Please note: 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.

Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our special rescue pups. Upon receiving your completed application below, we will contact you to review your application and schedule a home visit. We look forward to working with you.

There is an adoption donation of $350 per dog (unless otherwise stated) over one year.  For puppies under one year, the adoption donation is $500 (unless otherwise stated).  Bichon Rescue of Orange County is an all ¬≠volunteer community of animal lovers who work together to save and re¬≠home non-shedding dogs in need. Your adoption donation helps to pay for medical treatment, grooming, food, and all of the expenses associated with fostering the dogs. Your adoption donation does not pay for the medical treatment and care of the dog you are adopting; previous donations from generous contributors have already provided for those costs. Your donation allows us to continue our mission of saving as many lives as possible through our rescue and adoption efforts.

Thank you,

BROC Leadership Team

I understand, that the dog I adopt will live indoors and will not be left outside unattended. I understand, if for any reason I, or my designated caregiver, are unable or unwilling to keep this dog, I will return the dog to Bichon Rescue of Orange County (BROC)! I understand the non-refundable adoption donation is $350.00 ($500 for puppies under one year). I further understand that once I have adopted, I will be notified of all BROC activities and events. I am at least twenty-one (21) years of age.
