PLEASE READ THIS PRIOR TO APPLYING TO ADOPT:What do I need to do to adopt a Bulldog? First do your research! English Bulldogs are high maintenance and can be expensive to care for. After you have researched the breed and decided a bulldog is for you click here Get Application for an application. Once that is received you will be called by a volunteer and interviewed at which time we will set up a home visit. The home visit is just to ensure the environment is safe for a dog. Be sure to have locks on fence gates, be prepared to purchase a crate etc. Once the home visit is complete and you are an approved adopter we will try to match a bulldog to you. It is important to note, our dogs are rescues and most come with issues, many require medications for life and it is rare we get young dogs or puppies. Most are adults or Seniors. This process is not quick, our group operates with only volunteers so please be patient. This process could take up to and over a month. In addition, we have adoption fees for each of our dogs. These fees help pay for the vetting of ALL the dogs in the rescue and they are not negotiable! Some of the dogs we get are medical nightmares while others may require little to no medical care. Adoptions fees do not cover all of the expenses so we also have to raise funds and we accept donations as well.


San Antonio Bulldog Rescue will not accept owner surrenders due to aggression with dogs or people. If your dog is aggressive or has behavioral issues contact a trainer.

Owner Surrenders please note: We do not accept the following dogs as owner surrenders: Olde English Bulldogs, Aultman White English Bulldogs, Victorian Bulldogs , American Bulldogs, Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldogs or other bulldog mixes. We only accept pure bred English Bulldogs (AKC Registration is not necessary)

Sammy Joe - Adopted

Sammy Joe came into rescue as a stray with a lot of neglect issues. His age is estimated to be older than five. He is a sweet boy that likes to be on your lap giving you lots of kisses and high fives. He usually ignores other dogs but will defend himself if he is uncomfortable or pushed by another dog. He would not do well in a home with small children as he likes to jump and paw. He is house-trained and does reasonably well on a leash. He loves car rides and does great with people. Sammy's adoption fee is $500 and we only adopt in Texas!
