Become a sponsor for The Bully Ball!

Please show your support for our mission by becoming a sponsor of The 15th Annual Bully Ball. The annual 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 2022 alone, 107 dogs were rescued with medical costs exceeding $320,000– even with our veterinary care providers extending rescue discounts.

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 and French Bulldogs that are sick, neglected, abused, or injured. We rescue regardless of medical condition. Veterinary care is our biggest ongoing expense.

As a sponsor for The 15th Annual Bully Ball, you will help us achieve our goal to first ensure the safety and well-being of all English and French Bulldogs that we take in and second, to educate the public in the care of English and French Bulldogs.
