Our Mission
The Bichon Frise Rescue of Northern NJ is an organization that rescues Bichons who are no longer wanted by their families or were given up due to hardship, death of the owner or in the worst cases, abandoned or found as strays. We are a small group of volunteers dedicated to saving the lives of as many Bichons as we can and rely solely on the generous donations of our supporters.

Company Overview
Bichon Rescue of NNJ is a 501(c)3 corporation and ALL donations are tax-deductible. The adoption fees collected never exceed the cost of vet services for our collective rescues. We are able to exist due to the generous donations of people like you who support Bichon Rescue. Our director and all our fosters and volunteers are NOT paid anything for their service and dedication. We are a totally volunteer group that are dedicated to saving the lives of Bichons whenever we can.

If you would like to become a volunteer or a foster home, we would love to hear from you!
