How We Got Started

Founded in 2012, adoptaBull's founding volunteers set out to create an exemplary rescue organization with the following mission:

  • To provide the best English Bulldog rescue care in Illinois, Southeastern Wisconsin and Northwestern Indiana
  • To reinvent English Bulldog Rescue in our service area and provide the best outcomes and experiences for the bulldogs in our care, for our adoptive homes and for our volunteers.

adoptaBull English Bulldog Rescue has successfully rehomed over 50 English Bulldogs each year since its beginning and continues to set the bar for the English Bulldog "rescue experience" in our service area. Our officers are members of the Bulldog Club of America Rescue Network (BCARN) and our leadership team has over 50 aggregate years of rescue expertise.
