Lily’s Pad Rescue

About Us

Lily’s Pad Rescue facilitates care for medically fragile bulldogs in need of loving, accepting devotion.  This can include hospice care for dogs at the end of their lives, transportation to and from foster and adoptive families, rehabilitation or rehome bulldogs when able, or be the last home on their life journey.  We educate and advocate, providing information of injustices animals face at the hands of abusers, and replace cruelty with love, to make each day their best possible day.

What do you mean by “special needs bulldogs?”

Lily’s Pad Rescue is focused on rescuing bulldogs with medical needs, most often Spina Bifida. These dogs have special medical considerations in regards to their daily care.

Why do your babies wear diapers? What is involved in the daily care for them?

Bulldogs with Spina Bifida are most often incontinent of urine and feces. This means they are unable to control their pooping and peeing. When indoors or out in public, they wear diapers. We use baby diapers as they are more cost effective. They also require good hygiene with each diaper change. This involves use of incontinence spray, baby wipes, and a & d ointment to protect the skin.  It is also very important that your bulldog gets plenty of “nudie booty” time to get air to the area. If the bulldog also has mobility issues, there may be other daily care needs. This would always be discussed prior to adoption, if issues are known to us.

Why are your adoption fees so much less than buying from a breeder or pet store?

We keep our adoption fees low because we understand the cost associated with taking on the care of a special needs bulldog. We want the money to go toward caring for your new baby. That said, we always accept donations and if you are inclined to donate more than the adoption fee, we will gladly accept!

I want to adopt from Lily’s Pad Rescue. How do I do that?

The first step is to request an application via PM or email at Once your completed application is reviewed by the LPR team, we will call for a phone interview. If you and LPR is in agreement to move forward, we would conduct a meet and greet and home inspection. Then, once the adoption fee is paid, we will deliver your new family member!

I don’t live in Lily’s Pad area, can I still apply to adopt a rescue?

Absolutely! If you are the right family for one of these pups, then we will work with a transport team to get him or her to you. We also work with other rescues around the U.S. so we could work with them or a volunteer of LPR to complete the home inspection. We would also Skype or FaceTime with you to see your environment in real time. The only thing that may not be able to occur is the meet and greet with the pup, unless you were willing to come to us.

I’m not able to adopt or foster right now, is there any other way I can support Lily’s Pad Rescue?

Yes! We accept and appreciate donations of any amount. In fact it’s the only way we can continue to save lives. We accept donations via PayPal at, and snail mail at 1701 Broadway #258, Vancouver, WA 98663.  We also have an Amazon wish list for supplies that we always need to have on hand. We add to this list as we get new kiddos, based on their individual needs.

YOU can show HEART promote HEALTH and share HOPE with your generous donation.
