FINDING FOREVER HOMES FOR BULL BREEDS

Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue’s Virtual Adoption Programme

What is Virtual Adoption? Our Virtual Adoption Programme is an opportunity to support one of the dogs in our care. Choose a dog, sign up, and you’ll get online updates and other benefits (see below) for as long as you choose to participate. If your dog gets adopted, we will let you know. After their successful trial period, we’ll send you a final update so you can see how they’re doing in their new, forever home. You can then choose to support another one of the dogs in the programme!

Email us: dogs@chchbullbreedrescue.org.nz to find out more!

Why Virtual Adoption?  We know that not everyone who would love to help has the time or ability to volunteer - the Virtual Adoption programme gives the community a chance to be actively involved in another vitally important way. By supporting the programme with a weekly donation, you enable us to invest more resources into recovery and training, giving the dogs a better life even before they find their forever homes.

Many people are not in the position to adopt.  Whether you rent, already have pets, or have allergies – Virtual Adoption connects you with a dog who needs your support. It’s the perfect way of being actively involved in supporting our dogs, even if your location or situation would otherwise prevent it.

Virtual Adoption can be gifted.  A pet is for life – which is why surprising somebody with one isn’t always a good idea. Through Virtual Adoption, you can safely surprise someone with a connection to a dog in our care. This includes gifting to young people who cannot adopt!

Virtual Adoption allows the dogs to have more of a presence in the community.  It can be all too easy for rescues to fall through the cracks; they become anonymous, part of a larger issue in which they’re just a statistic. But, with your help, your Virtual Adoptee has more opportunity to find their forever home! With you introducing them to your friends and family, more people will see what makes that particular dog special. The truth of the individual dog’s heart and personality being seen by the right person is all that’s needed for them to find their happy ever after, and you can be a vital part of that.

Proceeds raised from Virtual Adoptions go 100% towards the dogs

Weekly donations allow us to plan for the future – including future surgeries, medications, specialty food, interactive toys, and training resources for all the dogs in our care.

Each one will be catered to your adoptee so they can walk away with one more wonderful experience to reflect on. Some may want to play endlessly, others may just want to cuddle up and enjoy being stroked. There may be dogs that don’t enjoy the company or touch of strangers - this will be specified in their Profiles. If you would like to support one of these dogs, you could potentially use this time to provide a positive training experience. By simply providing your presence at the dogs pace, our volunteers can reinforce the presence of an otherwise unknown person with lots of treats and reassurance! This can help your Virtual Adoptee feel safe and increase their chances of a forever home.
