Become a Bully Ball 11 sponsor!

Please show your support for our mission by becoming a sponsor of Bully Ball 11. The annual Bully Ball is our major fundraiser that enables Georgia English Bulldog Rescue to continue to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome 100’s of English Bulldogs.

The yearly overhead for these abused and neglected bulldogs is staggering. In 2018 alone, 60 dogs were rescued with 35 currently in foster care; veterinary costs exceeded $180,000. – even with our veterinary care providers extending rescue discounts. As of July 2019, we have already hit the 2018 numbers.

Georgia English Bulldog Rescue is a 501(c)3 charity organization. All sponsorships and in-kind donations may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes. Contact your tax expert for qualification.

100% of the net proceeds of The Bully Ball go directly to the support and care of rescued bulldogs throughout the South.  Georgia English Bulldog Rescue rehabilitates and re-homes English Bulldogs that are sick, neglected, abused, or injured. We rescue regardless of medical condition. Veterinary care is our biggest ongoing expense. As a Bully Ball 11 sponsor, you will help us achieve our goal to first ensure the safety and well-being of all English Bulldogs that we take in and second to educate the public in the care of English Bulldogs.
