Adoption is the heart of ROEB.  Bulldogs are loyal and loving creatures and finding them a forever home where they are loved and cared for is the goal and purpose of the rescue.  


BEFORE you apply PLEASE carefully review the adoption rules and requirements!  If you do not meet ALL of these qualifications please do not apply.  


There are NO exceptions on these rules!


1. You must live in Ohio or be in a surrounding state within 2 hours driving distance of the border.  

We will not ship our dogs!

2. There can be no children under the age of 8 years old in the home.  We often do not know the full history of our dogs, and many of our owner surrendered dogs are also given up because they are no longer tolerating children well.  This rule is for the protection of your children and our dogs!


3.  You must be 25 years of age or older to adopt.


Adoption Application Process and Procedure

When a dog becomes available for adoption it will be posted on our Facebook page and under our Available Dogs page.  


ONLY if you meet all of the above qualifications, and are interested in adding a furry family member to your home fill out the adoption application below.


After we receive the application back we will take some time to review the information.  We may schedule a phone interview to learn more about you and your family, along with contacting your references and completing a vet check (speaking with the vet that you use about your current or past pets and how they have been cared for).  If everything passes a home check will be scheduled.  A ROEB volunteer will visit your home to meet you and your family and see where the bulldog would be living.  


Please note - this process can take two to six weeks depending on the application demand at the time of applying.  We are strictly a volunteer run organization and we ask for your patience during this process!


If everything checks out you will be approved to adopt!  A meet and greet will be set up with the dog or dogs that we think match your lifestyle best.  


Adoption fees are due at the time of adoption.  Adoption fees range from $200 to $800 depending on the age and health of the dog.  Every dog has medical costs associated with them and without adoption fees we would not be able to keep the rescue afloat!
