Since its inception, GEBR has rescued over 1,060 English Bulldogs.

In 2022 alone, 107 dogs were rescued! Without the support of donors, sponsors and volunteers, GEBR cannot provide the much needed veterinary care and rehabilitation for these dogs. Thank you for your generosity so we can treat these wonderful dogs with the respect and love they deserve.

Georgia English Bulldog Rescue, Inc. is located in Winder, Georgia and is a public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

GEBR is overseen by Ruthann Phillips, Director.

Our mission is to first ensure the safety and well-being of all English Bulldogs that we take in and secondly to educate the public in the care of English Bulldogs.  We rehabilitate and re-home English Bulldogs that are sick, neglected, abused, or injured and provide a safe alternative to shelters for owners that are faced with the already difficult decision of finding a new home for their English bulldog.

English Bulldogs end up in rescue due to many reasons:

  • Owner can’t afford their bulldog’s medical bill.
  • Owner purchased a bulldog without doing research on the special needs of a bulldog.
  • An English Bulldog is located in a high kill shelter and their stray  time is up. The bulldog is not a good candidate for adoption due to their obvious poor medical condition so they are at risk to be euthanized.
  • Family no longer wants their senior English Bulldog anymore.
  • Female English Bulldogs are dumped in the pound or on the side of the road by a backyard breeder because they can no longer produce puppies. Often, these poor girls are covered in mange and have various infections due to lack of proper medical care while with their previous owner.
