IBR Adoption Guidelines

The following are the guidelines for adopting an IBR Bullie & adoption fees.


Adoptive families should:

•Reside in Indiana, Ohio or Kentucky
•Have no children under the age of 8*
•Complete the entire adoption application - leaving blanks only delays the application process
•Upon application approval, be available for and pass a home visit
*As a general guideline, IBR and most other rescues do not place bullies into families with children under 8 years old due to young children being unable to understand appropriate Bullie interaction and not fully knowing a Bullie's history. This policy is in both the best interests of the children and our Bullies.

Adoption Fees**:

•2 years and under - $650.00
•3-5 years - $ 550.00
•5-6 years - $450.00
•7 and up - $350.00 or less
**IBR takes into consideration if a Bullie has expensive monthly medications for life or is a special needs Bullie before determining their final adoption fee. All adoption fees go directly into IBR's rescue fund to pay for health care and rescue expenses.
