From time to time, breeders will contact the ABC to help them find a home for older dogs to "retire" or be "re-homed". Less often, the ABC can help direct you to other programs that have rescued Bolognese, though luckily for the pups, this doesn't happen often. The process of adoption begins with an ABC application. The fees for adoption will depend on various factors (age of dog, transportation, etc.). The first step in this process is filling out the contact form below.
If you are in need of placing a Bolognese in our ABC Rescue and Re-Homing/Adoption program, know of one that needs help with our rescue services, OR if you would like to be on our list to adopt a Rescue or Re-Home Bolognese, please use the contact form below or call 573-207-5107 to leave a voicemail. Joyce Eisert, our Rescue and Re-Homing/Adoption Coordinator, will contact you. Please be advised that it may take up to 72 hours for a reply. Please be sure to type "Adoption Inquiry" for the subject of your email.
In January 2017, the ABC was alerted that Second Chance Companions, located in SW Washington and the Portland Metro Area, recovered fifteen Bolognese dogs from a dismantled puppy mill.
The American Bolognese Club donated to SCC in order to help with their veterinary care, food, vaccinations, and other supplies. SCC was in charge of placing these precious lives in forever homes. The ABC wanted each new owner to understand the Bolognese breed and be able to keep up with their new homes by offering a free ABC membership.
