Bichon and Little Buddies Rescue is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit dog rescue located in Mukwonago WI (Waukesha County), just a short drive southwest of Milwaukee.  It is licensed by the State of Wisconsin #268555-DS.

Founded in 2000 as a rescue organization for the popular Bichon Frise, the need for services for other small breeds was quickly noted and our Mission was soon expanded to include other small breeds, as well.  On any given day, you will find Bichons, Chihuahuas, Mini Poodles, Dachshunds, Shih Tzus and many others, as well as a great variety of wonderful mixed breed dogs … all needing new homes for various reasons.  Some dogs are surrendered by their owners, some are unclaimed strays, and others are rescued from puppy mills.

We hope you will take some time to peruse our site and see not only the adorable dogs currently available for adoption , but also those who we were able to place in their forever homes, fondly called our alumni.  We look forward to questions and comments and hope you will also visit our Facebook page for the very latest updates.

We firmly believe that every dog deserves a loving forever home, and we are dedicated to making this canine vision of Heaven come true for the hundreds of dogs we take in every year.

Please remember to make an appointment to visit and see our super adoptable dogs (after filling out an application), or come visit during our regular open hours on Thursday afternoons from 2:00 to 6:30 p.m.
