Bichon and Little Buddies Rescue is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit dog rescue located in Mukwonago WI (Waukesha County), just a short drive southwest of Milwaukee.  It is licensed by the State of Wisconsin #268555-DS.

Founded in 2000 as a rescue organization for the popular Bichon Frise, the need for services for other small breeds was quickly noted and our Mission was soon expanded to include other small breeds, as well.  On any given day, you will find Bichons, Chihuahuas, Mini Poodles, Dachshunds, Shih Tzus and many others, as well as a great variety of wonderful mixed breed dogs … all needing new homes for various reasons.  Some dogs are surrendered by their owners, some are unclaimed strays, and others are rescued from puppy mills.

We hope you will take some time to peruse our site and see not only the adorable dogs currently available for adoption , but also those who we were able to place in their forever homes, fondly called our alumni.  We look forward to questions and comments and hope you will also visit our Facebook page for the very latest updates.

We firmly believe that every dog deserves a loving forever home, and we are dedicated to making this canine vision of Heaven come true for the hundreds of dogs we take in every year.

Please remember to make an appointment to visit and see our super adoptable dogs (after filling out an application), or come visit during our regular open hours on Thursday afternoons from 2:00 to 6:30 p.m.


HamBingo at Hamburger Mary's in Milwaukee:

Thursday June 28, 2018, Bingo starts at 8:00 pm and reservations are recommended 414-488-2555

We need to make this a very successful fundraiser.  Our medical costs are well exceeding our adoption fees, which means we need to fundraise to pay our vet bill.  We are looking for some donations to be used as bingo prizes.  We need to provide at least 10 prize baskets (usually $20-40 value).  Let us know if you would like to provide a gift or basket for this event.  

This isn't your Grandma's Bingo!  It is PG-13 Drag Queen Bingo.  It is free to play bingo but Hamburger Mary's does have a minimum order and a show fee in place during bingo nights and there is a free will donation jar available for Bichon and Little Buddies.  There are always great prizes if you win Bingo.  Hamburger Mary's is at 5th and National in Milwaukee.  We hope to see you there!

Featured Pets

Featured Pet:

Buddy, long hair Chihuahua, and Minnie, Min Pin, have been with Bichon and Little Buddies a long time.  They would love to be adopted together, and Minnie has some special needs as she is blind.  They did have a family, but their owner was no longer able to care for them.  Buddy is a nice guy, social and friendly.  Minnie is very sweet, but blind due to cataracts.  She still gets along very well and loves to get attention and go for walks.  If you are interested in this special pair, fill out the preadoption application and we can start the adoption process.  Their adoption fee is reduced to $300 (for the pair) for the month of January.  Buddy is 9 years old, and Minnie is 11 years.
