Sponsor a Bichon

As part of our fundraising, Tidewater Bichon Frise Rescue is offering the opportunity to sponsor a specific dog in our rescue program. For $25, sponsors get their name listed on this website, a biography and "autographed", color picture of "their dog" along with a sponsorship certificate mailed to them. Or you can choose to sponsor "your" dog all year long! Become a Bichon Buddy for a $10 a month donation and you will also receive an "I Love My Bichon" automobile magnet and updates concerning "your" dog.

Hayley

Hayley
$25 One Time Sponsor
Monthly Bichon Buddy

Hayley's owner gave her up to a shelter because this 3 year old Maltese has juvenile cataracts which her owner couldn't afford to have removed. The shelter contacted TBFR and a transport was arranged. Tidewater Bichon Frise Rescue will have the cataracts removed and new lenses implanted. After a recuperative period, Hayley will be available for adoption.

Monty

Monty
$25 One Time Sponsor
Monthly Bichon Buddy

Monty was rescued from a Puppy Mill Bust. He is extremely shy and doesn't understand or relate to things that most dogs and their owners take for granted. He ignores other dogs; he doesn't know what toys are; he is not food motivated and he is afraid of most people. He does like to sleep in bed with his foster mom and follows her everywhere. With much love, time and patience we hope that this very sweet boy will start to relax and enjoy his new life.

Sean

Sean
$25 One Time Sponsor
$10/Month Bichon Buddy

Sean has spent almost his entire life in an Elizabethan collar in order to keep him from inflicting wounds on himself from biting, licking and scratching. Sean is now seeing a veterinary dermatologist which is expensive but necessary to his health and quality of life. Until his allergies can be identified and either eliminated or controlled, Sean will stay here at White Dog Cottage.

Rosie

Rosie
$25 One Time Sponsor
$10/Month Bichon Buddy

When seven month old Rosie came to rescue she weighed less than 5 lbs. -- half of what she should have weighed! Purchased at a local pet store by pathetic excuses for human beings, she lived outside and was being starved. Now at age two, she is extremely distrustful to most people and is aggressive to other dogs. She feels safe and is happy in rescue. She will always have a home at White Dog Cottage.

PeeWee

Pee Wee has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. Blind and deaf, this very senior Bichon was dumped in shelters at least three times before TBFR was called. We knew when he came to White Dog Cottage that he was a hospice dog. We wished that he could have stayed with us longer, but suffering from dementia a nd in the last stages of renal failure, we knew it was time to let him go. Thank you to those who sponsored him.


Louie

Louie spent the last 8 years of his life in Rescue. He made many friends and was quite a character and the topic of many conversations! After passing his 18th birthday in August, he began to fail until two weeks ago, he finally crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was held and loved until the very last second of his life. Thank you to his sponsors who helped to make the last of his life the best of his life.
