About Long Island Bulldog Rescue
Long Island Bulldog Rescue was founded in 1999 by Laurette Richin. Long Island Bulldog Rescue is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to help English Bulldogs through education, prevention, intervention and adoption. We fulfill our mission by helping, healing, and homing abandoned, neglected, abused, or released English Bulldogs.
