Mission

Bichon Rescue of Orange County California Seniors for Seniors is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of neglected, abused, or otherwise homeless Bichon Frises, Bichon mixes and other small non-shedding breeds, placing these rescues into permanent, stable, and caring forever homes. We believe in the value of our senior citizens as adopters and are committed to their advocacy and support. We believe in promoting awareness of the need to spay and neuter pets, and of the importance of proper medical, dental and nutritional care. We believe in cultivating a volunteer spirit in our youth and educating them about the importance of pet advocacy.

Dental Program

Dental disease is the most common health issue we face with our senior rescues. One of the biggest
problems we see associated with poor dental health is infection. This in part is because older dogs
have diminished immune systems and may be less capable of fighting off the effects of the bacteria
related to the build-up of dental plaque.

Left untreated this can result in inflamed gums and loss of bone under the gums which then leads to
periodontal disease.

Because we do senior blood panels on all of our rescues, we oftentimes find evidence of infection
even if all outwards signs do not indicate a problem. In most cases, this is due to dental disease and if a panel is performed, the markers of infection usually disappear. Additionally, kidney, liver, and sometimes bladder markers also showed marked improvement after treatment the need for medications or prescription diets.

Adults

Unfortunately there is the senior that despite all our efforts we are unable to restore their
health sufficiently for a successful adoption. We provide the best veterinary care and do the absolute
most to insure that each senior has every opportunity to be well, rehabilitated and placed in their own forever home. Still, because of age and/or disability some seniors are considered nearly or fully un-adoptable yet are still able to live with a good quality of life. But special needs seniors are not an adoption priority. Even with wonderful homes available it is unrealistic to expect someone to take on the emotional and financial responsibility of a terminal senior with extremely high expenses, an unsure future, and that may require continuous care and monitoring.

Consequently, we have set up our Senior Sunset Program to help senior and hospice rescues live out
their golden years in a home with amazing people (Sponsors) who love them immensely.
