Our Surrender Process
Bichon FurKids Rescue wants to help Bichons and Bichon mixes that can no longer be cared for by their current owners. We then find loving, forever homes for dogs surrendered to our care.
Our surrender fee is predicated on the age and health status of the dog being surrendered. We take into consideration the dog’s current medical situation, recent dental work and boosters and any additional requirements. Each surrender fee is identified on a case-by-case basis and communicated with the owner surrendering the dog. Your dog should be groomed, up to date with shots, spayed or neutered, and ready to become a part of a forever family. We will let you know what your fee will be after evaluating your dog. And, unlike some other groups, we do not separate a bonded pair. The surrender fee applies to each dog.
Before contacting us to surrender your dog, please review this Surrender Form and Agreement. When you are ready, complete the form and submit it. One of our representatives will contact you to see how we can help.
Our surrender process will include the following steps:
-- Owner completes the Surrender Form and Agreement
-- Owner sends photos of their dog to firstname.lastname@example.org
-- Owner completes Biography Form for their dog. https://bichonfurkids.org/bio/
-- BFK contacts the owner to review the surrender form and make an appointment to interact with the dog
-- BFK representative meets owner and dog, reviews vet records and performs temperament assessment
-- BFK representative provides BFK Board with interaction details and recommendations
-- BFK Board decides if the dog will be accepted into rescue
-- If accepted, BFK will find a foster home for the dog
-- Once the foster home is determined, BFK will make arrangements to pick up the dog from the owner
-- Once the dog is in foster care, our Adoption Process will begin
