Our Mission

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 over 17 years now. We are the OG of bully rescues as a licensed Illinois shelter and a 501c3 charitable organization. The care we provide our bulldogs exceeds any you will find from a breed rescue…heck, any rescue! This love includes a high quality diet, the best veterinary care around 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 over 50 volunteers, CEBR has rehomed over 1500 bullies and counseled thousands of families to provide support, encouragement and training consults to help keep bullies in their homes.
