Kobe's Feelin' Good and Being Silly!! 

Kobe in his foster home today!

Kobe on arrival.

Look at what one week of love and donations can do!  We removed Kobe's infected, non-visual eye and removed the teeth that were causing him so much discomfort.  We gave him medicated baths and started him on medications for his skin and heartworms. We gave Kobe a new life where he feels good and can be silly!

A Poodley Pair 

Laverne and Shirley take their cues from each other. One eats, the other chows. One watches TV, the other figures, "why not". One takes a nap, well, you get the picture. This bonded mom and daughter pair are about as sweet as can be. Of course, mom Laverne keeps Shirley in line, but Shirley doesn't mind; she's a devoted daughter after all. This sweet pair can't wait to have a forever home with love enough for 2! Could that be YOU? Please visit our Adoptable Dogs Page. for more info on this precious, Poodly pair! They are waiting for you!

Elmo Says "Happy Easter"!! 

Elmo wants to thank the volunteers who saved him and the donors who repaired his legs.  He is enjoying his first Easter with his new mom and dad.  PPR volunteers do the work and PPR donors make it possible.  We thank everyone in the PPR Family for their hard work and generosity.  Happy Easter!

Don't You Want Some Bunny to Love? 

Tony Does! 

Please take a moment to visit Tony & his pals on our Adoptable Dogs Page

Olive Her!

Olive has been learning to trust people. She came to us a timid little spirit.  But just look at her now!  She'll do a little dance for a treat, she'll come a runnin' when called, and we think she has perfected the,  "Hey, wanna give me a home?" face.  What do you think?  Check out Olive and all of our great pooches on the Adoptable Dogs Page!

Welcome to Poodle and Pooch Rescue

Poodle and Pooch Rescue is a 501(c)3 non profit organization that saves dogs that truly need help.  We rescue the "leftovers" from animal control, the dogs nobody wants because they're older or suffer from neglect, abuse or a medical need.  Their "last" day becomes the first day of their new life.  We provide the veterinary care they need, a foster family they love and when they're ready, we adopt them to a family who cherishes them.  We are all volunteers, 100% of your tax-deductible donation saves dogs.

Pretty in Pink!

April has come a long way baby!  She has recovered from her left-side mastectomy and spay.  In May, we'll do her right-side mastectomy and dental, then she'll be ready for a forever family!  In the meantime, she has a full social calendar. Her foster mom keeps her on the go with strolls around Lake Eola, dining at the outdoor cafes, and shopping for designer dresses of course! 

The First Day of Ally & Ariel's New Life! 

PPR just took in 7 more Special Needs dogs including Ally and Ariel.  Watch the video below to share their first day with PPR.  We are asking for your help. You can see just some of our new arrivals on the In Recovery page.  We are in the process of evaluating the others.  April, May and June are tough months for us because our donations slow down during this time.  We get through this period every year by reducing the number of Special Needs dogs we bring in.  But it's so hard to say "no" when animal control asks us to help a Special Needs dog.  We know that we are their last resort and every "no" means a life lost.  We ask you for so much on behalf of these dogs.  Many of you cannot help with another donation.  But maybe you can help by spreading the word.  Please share this video and ask your friends if they might help us during this tough period.  The thought of saying "no" to a Special Needs dog that needs help, is breaking our hearts.  Please make a donation of any amount by clicking on the donate below or share this with your friends.  Thank you for helping us save them.

Cheryl Brings Duchess to Safety 

Cheryl is one of our newest volunteers, who after moving to Orlando recently, wasted no time jumping on board to help PPR. Cheryl is a rescue advocate who asked to be involved in any way she could best be used. One of our greatest needs is transporters, as these little dogs often have no options at the shelters. It takes a rescuer to literally bring them safely to our vets, where they get the care they need. The added bonus is the dog gets to feel the love of a human heart, and the comfort of a human hug, while on their way to their new life.  Cheryl doesn't mind that Duchess is dirty, matted and afraid.  She knows this is the first step to a wonderful forever home. Thank you Cheryl for joining PPR, where our volunteers Rock!  

Recovery Room 

Many dogs aren't rescued from animal control because they need a little extra care. They need certain diagnostics or procedures to make them well.  We save as many of these dogs as we can, with your help.  Then we find them loving homes with the best families! Visit our Recovery Room to meet some of our current Special Needs dogs.  You can help them start their new lives with a small donation.
