We are a unique rescue and first rescue-based breed club providing for our dogs and adopters what no other rescue provides. We take in poodles and poodle mixes of all sizes, curly or wavy coated dogs, and occassionally other breeds as space and resources allow. People feel very comfortable surrendering their dogs to us because of our strict policies, finding the type of families the former owners want their dogs to be adopted to, our nutrition program, our lifelong free training program, our environment and because of what we provide for our dogs and adopters for the rest of the dogs lives. Adopters also come back and adopt a second dog because they are so happy with the first adopted dog. However, in 2012 alone we unfortunately had to turn away over 200 animals in need. WITH YOUR HELP, we can save more lives during the times we are full by you becoming a volunteer and/or foster home….for a few hours, days, weeks or year by year. Sometimes there are dogs in danger of being euthanized in animal control and we need someone in that area to pull the dog out of there under our name and hold the dog for a few hours until we can get the dog to us. Sometimes we receive a senior dog that deserves to live the rest of their short lives in a loving, private home. Sometimes there are owner surrenders that live far away and need help getting the dogs to us. Sometimes we have a dog that needs to recover from surgery and needs personal recovery time and attention in a foster home. Sometimes a dog is better in a private home until the dog is adopted. These are situations that we need foster homes for. By being a foster, you are helping to save two lives: the existing dogs life in foster and the one we take into our program in it’s place. This is where we need your help. We want our fosters to provide the love and time for the dogs in need. We will pay for the food and the yearly medical expenses. Won’t you help today? We need you and the dogs need you. Existing adopters are already pre-approved to be foster homes and are allowed to adopt the dogs they foster. New foster homes that have not adopted from us must allow us to show the dog to prospective adopters. If they are interested in adopting a fostered dog, they must go through our normal adoption process. Don’t be selfish and say you would never be able to give up a foster dog but instead think about the dogs and ask yourself how you can help out one of our dogs and help to find them a good home and get them into an environment in the meantime where they can have one on one attention. If you want to volunteer yet can’t find the time then let us bring one or two of our dogs to you to foster in your own home where you can volunteer lots of time with them. Send an adoption application in today and write “foster” on it. There is no application fee for a foster application.

Arnie was purchased from a pet shop by new dog owners who soon realized the responsibilities involved with a job and the daily care and grooming cost of a high maintenance coat. They gave Arnie to Arnie’s former owner who also was a first time dog owner. She did the best that she could with him but when she lost her job she could no longer afford him and had to move in with her parents who already had a dog.

In June 2013 her owner was being evicted and left Amanda behind to fend for herself. She must have been by herself for about a week and her food and water bowl were both empty; Her neighbor heard sounds from the empty apartment and begged the superintendent to let her in. She took Amanda in and cared for her, and brought her back to health but her older dog did not want a high energy little puppy around. Amanda absolutely loves the company of her person and of other dogs; We are looking for someone who will be able to spend most of the day and night with Amanda and provide her with the necessities a puppy needs.

CARLA AND CRYSTAL – TWO ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE RED COCKAPOO SISTERS – We were almost adopted but then the people lost their jobs so we are still here needing homes.

We are well behaved, are cute, love to cuddle, have happy smiles and want so much for a family to love us together.
We believe Carla and Crystal are sisters. They are beautiful apricot cockapoos and are very quiet, friendly, playful and obedient.
