Who We Are

American Brittany Rescue, Inc. is a nationwide 501(c)(3) non-profit group of over 250 Brittany breeders, owners, friends and competitors who volunteer their time and effort to provide veterinary care, evaluation, and finding adoptive homes for Brittanys who have found themselves abandoned, unwanted or lost.

About Brittanys

Brittanys can make wonderful family dogs and excel in many areas, but they are not for everyone. They are active, playful, energetic dogs who require personal attention every day. If you'd like to learn whether a Brittany is a good choice for you, your family and/or your lifestyle, please read our section on Choosing a Brittany.

Adopting a friend

If you would like to adopt one of the dogs you see, please contact the person listed on the pet description page for more information. We also invite you to visit our Frequently Asked Questions page, which may answer some of your general questions about Brittanys and Brittany Rescue. Also be sure to check our Gallery of Adopted Dogs page and you'll see why we're so passionate about our work.

The dogs in foster care are evaluated by experienced volunteers. We do look for the "right match" for each dog in our care. The first step in adopting a brittany through ABR is to fill out the online adoption application. Once it is received we will be in touch with you by phone to go over your application and explain the adoption process. All information you supply is confidential. If you need help completing our form, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We spay/neuter, vaccinate, micro-chip and temperament test each and every Brittany that comes into rescue. Each dog's expenses are different depending on the medical need of the animal. We ask for a donation of between $200-$350 to cover the individual expenses of the dog.

ABR Special Programs

Brittany's are young in spirit even if they are not puppies anymore. Even old dogs need new loves. Senior dogs are eligible for Senior Companion Program.

Consider become a Brittany Buddy. Some rescue dogs need a little extra help.  An otherwise healthy dog may come to rescue with heartworm or some other easily solved problem, but it isn't so easy to solve when funds are tight and there are many dogs who need help. Often older dogs stay in rescue simply because they're older. Many volunteers cover the extra expenses themselves, but that makes continued volunteering difficult. Thank you for considering American Brittany Rescue Services.
