Please read the Bio information thoroughly for each dog and make sure that you meet the qualifications that are required for that dog, before applying.

After over 24 years, we are known for matching the right dog with the right forever home. We are hoping to save your time and ours, as we continue to rescue Bichons in need.

Thank you for contacting Small Paws® Rescue! Our goal is to adopt loving Bichons, to responsible, loving, permanent homes. We would appreciate you filling out this form, so we may find out more about you and your family, for your sake and of COURSE, the dog's!
