Welcome to the home of the English Bully rescue everyone is talking about! Don’t be fooled by our name, we cover a very large Midwest territory.  

Chicago English Bulldog Rescue (CEBR for short) and our volunteers have been helping pure-bred bullies and their families for almost 10 years now. We are a licensed Illinois shelter and a 501c3 charitable organization. The care we provide our English Bully rescues exceeds any you will find from a breed rescue…heck, any rescue! This love includes a high quality diet, the best veterinary care around from a bulldog specialist, and behavioral evaluations of the highest quality.  

We serve Chicago-proper and the surrounding suburbs, the state of Illinois, Northwest Indiana, and Southeast Wisconsin including Milwaukee. Made up of 75 volunteers, CEBR has rehomed almost 800 bullies and counseled hundreds of families to provide support, encouragement and training consults to help keep bullies in their homes.

The national economic downturn in the past few years has presented some unexpected challenges for CEBR with an unprecedented rise in bulldog surrenders both by owner families and various animal care and control organizations that turn to CEBR for assistance in appropriate placements. Our dedicated group of volunteers has enabled us to not only respond to this increased need for our services but also to strategically expand both our service area and our exceptional Rescue Program which focuses on puppy mill, dog auction, and large scale surrender situations.
