There are three (3) different ways you can donate to help our beloved Bichon frise breed.
You can donate to Rescue (also known as the BFCA Charitable Trust) – this donation is tax deductible.
You can donate to BFCA Health.
You can make a Memorial Donation to BFCA Health.
Please read the information below about each area.
The Bichon Frise Rescue effort will endeavor to efficiently use the limited resources of volunteers, money, housing, and time to rehabilitate and responsibly place in adoptive homes those Bichons which have been relinquished or abandoned and which appear to have reasonably sound temperaments and health.
When we obtain a rescue Bichon, he/she is taken to a veterinarian for a thorough health check, vaccinations if needed, spay/neuter if needed, and for treatment that may be required to treat anything that is found on exam. As you can imagine, our Rescue veterinarian bills consume most, if not all, of the monies donated. Therefore, any monetary donation received is greatly appreciated! Also, your donation is tax deductible.
If you wish to donate to Rescue (also formally called the Bichon frise Club of America Charitable Trust) using your Credit Card or PayPal account, please by click on this “Donate” button.
One of the goals of the health committee of BFCA is to support research in health issues that affect our Bichons. In order to fund research, we have, in the Bichon Frise Club of America, an ongoing health fund dedicated to research. Already we have funded allergy, bladder stone, and cataract research.
Please click here to Donate on-line to the Health research fund.
Donating to either area of BFCA is a great way to memorialize a lost pet or to honor a friend of the breed.
Rescue or Health Research fund will, of course, accept your donation “just because”. As in just because you love Bichon Frises!
All donations made by check should be sent to our club’s treasurer at the address below. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU ARE DONATING TO BOTH RESCUE AND HEALTH, YOU NEED TO SEND 2 SEPARATE CHECKS BECAUSE THE RESCUE DONATION IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE AND A DONATION TO HEALTH IS NOT.
If you wish to donate to Rescue with a check, please make the check in US dollars payable to the BFCA Charitable Trust. Our furry friends thank you very much!
If you wish to donate to the Health Research fund, please make the check payable to the Bichon Frise Club of America, Inc. (or BFCA Inc). Your donation is appreciated and will be used wisely to improve the health of Bichons everywhere! Please note that donations to Health Research Fund are NOT tax deductible.
If you wish to make a Memorial donation to either Rescue or to Health, please include the address of the person honored or the owner of the dog being memorialized. We will send an appropriate message regarding your donation.

** If mailing a check, please be sure to note that the donation is for Bichon Health Research or that the donation is for Rescue (BFCA Charitable Trust). Again, if donating to both, you must send 2 separate checks.**
We thank you for caring.
