Adopting A Friend

The best way to meet the dogs listed on Petfinder is to visit us at Petsmart every weekend.  If there is a certain dog you would like to meet, please call us and let us know so we can be sure to bring it that weekend.  Please text us so we can set up a time for you to meet your new best friend if you cannot make it to Petsmart on weekends.  We are a volunteer based organization, which means we have full time jobs and families too, so please understand if we don't get back to you right away.  Texting is much more efficient for us to meet your needs.

We have a few simple forms for you to fill out.  We will also ask you a series of questions to make sure your personality and lifestyle is right for the dog.  We want to ensure you are a perfect match.  If you decide that the dog you chose isn't right for your family, we will take the dog back, but no refund is issued.  We never want to see the dogs we save end up at the pound!  We look forward to meeting you and helping your find your new family member!

Our adoption fees range from $175-$300 which includes their spay or neuter, microchip, deworming, and age appropriate shots.

Who We Are

We are a volunteer based 501(c)(3) trying to save the lives of homeless pets in our community.

Bandit’s Buddies Rescue is a registered 501c non-profit organization based in Fresno, CA. BBR was founded in 2009 by Sandy Polly in honor of her beloved border collie, Bandit, who she rescued at 3 weeks old in 2002. Sandy has loved animals her entire life, and recognized the need for a “second chance” rescue in the central valley, where euthanasia rates are the 3rd highest in the country. BBR takes dogs  (many chihuahuas and smaller breeds, with the occasional larger breed) from high kill shelters, who are “eleventh hour” dogs scheduled to be euthanized, usually for space. Many rescues will not even take chihuahuas because there are so many of them! We are always in need of loving foster homes, volunteers, donations of goods (dog food, newspapers, blankets,  monetary donations, etc) and most importantly,  forever homes for the “kids”! We are 100% volunteer based, and rely on donations and contributions from our wonderful supporters. We are at Petsmart holding adoptions every weekend from 12-4pm in Clovis, CA.
