Adopting A Friend

We know you are excited about the thought of getting a bully.  But before you make this decision, we ask that you have done the following:

  • Spoken with all members of your household and come to mutual agreement.
  • Discussed the new addition with your home owner's association or landlord if applicable.
  • Experienced the breed yourself.  If you do not currently have a bully family member, we ask that you attend one of our CEBR events before applying.
  • Double check our Adoption Area Map to be sure you are within our adoption radius. http://www.ebullymatch.com/Adopt.html
  • Save up!  Bullies are not an inexpensive breed and having a solid savings account that has an emergency fund is essential.  Rescue bullies are also not a way to get a "cheap bully."  Often times rescue bullies end up costing more in upkeep than a bully purchased from a breeder.

This application is very thorough and will take approximately 30 minutes.  Be sure to have your landlord info available (if applicable) as well as vet records and contact information for your other pets (if applicable). Start your application now at http://www.ebullymatch.com/Adopt.html.

Who We Are

Chicago English Bulldog Rescue (CEBR) is the premier English Bulldog Rescue in the Midwest!  Don’t be fooled by our name, we cover a very large Midwest territory.

CEBR is the oldest and most experienced non-profit 501c3 english bully rescue organization. You can feel confident that your donations are put to appropriate use and they are also tax deductible to the extent of the law.  In addition we are a licensed shelter with the Illinois Department of Agriculture.

This means we are held to the highest standards of care and protection of bulldogs -- we are unmatched -- no bones about it!

We are an all-volunteer organization made up of 75 volunteers.  We have rehomed over 600 bullies and counseled hundreds of families to provide support, encouragement and training consults to help keep bullies in their homes.  

The care we provide our English Bully rescues exceeds any you will find from a breed rescue…heck, any rescue!  This love includes a high quality diet, the best veterinary care around from a bulldog specialist, and behavioral evaluations of the highest quality.

We are committed to helping English Bulldogs in need from all over the country, but mostly focusing on our state and the surrounding states. 

You can find us online at http://www.ebullymatch.com.

We serve Chicago-proper and the surrounding suburbs, the bulk of the state of Illinois, Northwest Indiana, and Southeastern Wisconsin including Milwaukee.
