I noticed a lot of people like you were looking for the best French Bulldog Rescues NJ, and decided to write it up. Please keep in mind that, at the time of this writing, the French bulldog rescues NJ network was up-to-date.
If you are looking for a rescue that isn’t listed here, you can always check with your official State of New Jersey website for a complete directory.
My search criteria included:
- Excellent reviews, Photos, and/or positive stories from other adopters
- Website authority
- Related certifications and licensing by the establishment
So, let’s get started…
7 Best French Bulldog Rescue Networks in New Jersey
1. 4 Paws Dog Rescue of NJ
The best place to see what this rescue is up to is to check out their facebook page @4pawsdogrescue. Here is a link to their website, but I find the facebook page much better to navigate. Their website can be found if you click on the heading below.
4 Paws Dog Rescue of NJ isn’t an exclusive French bulldog rescue, but they do have a lot of animals available for adoption at any given time. Have your heart set on a French bulldog? Personally, I don’t blame you. If you decide to go through this non-profit company, stay patient because the French bulldog of your dreams could turn up at any minute.
PO Box 492 Berlin, New Jersey

We place dogs in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process which includes taking considerable care in finding good matches and educating prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a dog into their homes and lives. Animals in our care are spayed or neutered, receive all appropriate veterinary care…
2. Muddy Paws Rescue NYC
I’m afraid this rescue doesn’t primarily adopt French bulldogs. I would go through the motions of contacting them and asking how often they get French bulldogs. They may even be able to contact you when one becomes available. Not all sites list their fees, but this one does (below). Please remember that non-profit organizations like French bulldog rescue sites usually take care of the vaccinations, veterinarian
- Puppies: $425 – $500
- Young adults: $350 – $450
- Adults $350 – $435
- Seniors $200 – $300
Special Quote from Organization:
All of our pups have seen a vet!
Adult dogs are spayed or neutered, have all of their shots, are dewormed, and are microchipped (unless there are extenuating circumstances, which we will discuss with you.)
Puppies have between one and three rounds of puppy shots and deworming, and are spayed or neutered if old/large enough.
I love this picture from Twitter!
3. Animal Alliance of New Jersey
I particularly like the care and detail that went into this website. When you click on the link FIND A DOG, you will be taken to directory. The directory enables you to indicate the breed, age, size, gender, and special characteristics you might be looking for. For example, is this dog good with children?

PO Box 1285, Belle Mead, NJ 08502
A special note from Animal Alliance of NJ:
Routine care for our animals is provided by the staff veterinarians at Planned Pethood. Services include a routine medical exam, age-appropriate distemper and rabies vaccinations, de-worming, flea and tick preventatives, leukemia and FIV testing for cats and microchipping for dogs. We routinely accept animals in immediate need of skilled veterinary care due to horrific abuse, neglect or illness.
Like what you see? Remember this…once you get that new dog home you’re going to need a lot of health care information. Sign up now before you forget. Don’t worry, I won’t overwhelm you with emails. You will get the best of the best with timely information on everything from a simple cough to cancer.
4. It’s a Dog’s Life Rescue of NJ
Some of these rescue websites make it easy to find contact information, and others are trickier. However, I was able to locate the email address, phone number, and general location within New Jersey.
Email: [email protected]
Call: 1 (609) 712-6144
It’s easy to look for the type of dog you want, but I don’t see any listing of fees anywhere. When you see the dog you want, you’ll see a purple button that says Ask About Me. I presume if you do that it will take you a little deeper into the process where you can get all of the pertinent information you need.
5. French Bulldog Rescue Network
This organization has a good presence on
Note: I prefer the facebook page to the webpage, which you can find at www.frenchbulldogrescue.org. Their organization is online, but the dogs are in foster homes around the country. Depending on availability, you might be able to find a French bulldog right in your own backyard so to speak.
NOTE: If you go to their website, you’ll see a purple banner at the top of the page to the right. The banner says Available Dogs Foster Dogs. Click on that link.
Fees: Wasn’t able to easily find.
French Bulldog Rescue Network Mission Statement:
FBRN’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home French Bulldogs in need from commercial breeding kennels, import brokers, public shelters, private rescue dogs, as well as provide education and training. Our goal is to place healthy and happy French Bulldogs into forever homes.
6. SNORT (Short Noses Only Rescue Team)
These guys have an awesome website at: SNORT
When going through SNORT to adopt a French Bulldog, there is a $10 application fee, but I couldn’t find anything more on additional fees. Like the other shelters listed on this post, SNORT is totally non-profit and works with volunteers.
Their application process is not on a first come, first served basis. They prefer to find a home that best suits the dogs’ needs. They ask potential adopters to complete a length application form after which you may be contacted by phone for an interview or visited (with your permission) at your house. Keep in mind that the ultimate health, safety, and well-being is what SNORT is all about. Have patience and the right dog will find his way to your heart and home.
If you’re interested, you can find their online application form here: ONLINE FORM

It’s important to note that the rescue only works within certain areas:
S.N.O.R.T. only adopts to residents of NJ, NY, PA, MD, DE, VA, DC, CT, RI, MA, NH, VT and ME. Applicants who live outside of this area will not be considered. In addition, we do not ship our dogs or provide assistance with transportation to adoptive homes. Adoptive homes must be willing to travel to the foster home to
7. French Bulldog Village
I really like the look of their website and the fact that information is easy to find. They have a PO box located in Rockaway, New Jersey.

I hope you found this useful. I think most rescues are hesitant to post their physical location for the safety of the animals. That means you’re likely going to have to get the ball rolling by applying online, or by emailing them with your questions. Judging by the many, many photos of adopted dogs (including French Bulldogs!), I would say it isn’t that hard to start the application process.
Please remember: Fees, emails, phone numbers, and addresses change over time. If you have a hard time locating any of these rescue shelters, please look to your State’s animal welfare directory. I included the link in the top paragraph of this post.
Now that you’ve read this post, why not find out what else is going on with Your Dog’s Health Matters. Part of the adoption process involves having the animals spayed/neutered and vaccinated. Click on either of those links to get up-to-date information on those topics.
Hey, once you have that dog in your house, you’re going to want to know a helluva lot more about his or her health. Sign up for emails with my latest, most popular posts!
