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!

Saving Grace ......... 

Grace's owners didn't want her anymore and judging from her condition, they didn't want her even when they owned her.  Animal control adopters didn't want her.  Other rescue groups didn't want her.  If you're reading this, YOU are part of the team that will Save Grace.  Grace is 7 years old.  She has cataracts in both eyes, likely juvenile cataracts that dogs acquire at a young age.  She came to us feeling badly.  Her bloodwork was good, her urinalysis was suspicious.  She was peeing frequently and obviously uncomfortable so we radiographed her bladder and found 5 large bladderstones, 4 can be seen in the radiograph below.  This is a painful condition, but the surgery is very successful.  Oh, and Grace also has heartworms.  We have started Grace on certain medications for discomfort, heartworms and infection.  We need to do more evaluation to decide the timing of her procedures and treatment, which will include bladderstone surgery, evaluation of her eyes by an ophthalmologist for possible cataract surgery, and heartworm treatment.  Please help us afford Grace's care with any donation.  Click on the Donate button and type in "Grace".  You'll receive regular email updates of her progress as she gets healthy and evenutally finds a family to love.  Let's continue to save the dogs that are left behind. 

What a Day for a Daydream....  

Sparky loves to spend his days lounging on the sun porch of his foster home. He stares out into the sunshine, wrapped up in the daydreams of his life ahead. Who will come for me?  A busy, active family or a young single go-getter? How about a lovely retired person or couple? Hmmmm, all these options sound so very nice. One day his daydreams will be a reality and his happily ever after will come. But for now, Sparky will bask in the warm sunny rays, wrapped in those dreams. Maybe Sparky is meant for you? Visit him and his fur friends on the Adoptable Dogs Page. They are waiting for you!

Out Cold  

Doggone it, Frank and Toki tried their best to finish the latest James Bond film, especially after all the hype it created.  But alas, as often happens when two wild and crazy guys get together, they just couldn't hang till the end. Must have been all the buttered popcorn. As for Toki, he couldn't care less about the movie's ending, he just knows his new beginning is here and now. With a foster dad as cool as Frank, Toki can't even imagine that it gets even better when his forever family comes along. Well, that can all wait cause these guys have lots of flicks (and some zzzzz's) to catch up on.  Please visit Toki (awake) on our 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.

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. 

______ Spoiled & Lovin' It! ______ 
We love hearing from our sweet pups once they get settled in their forever home. Lily is particularly clever and often jumps on her mom Em's computer to let us know how things are going. Here's a little snippet from her latest update. We feel confident all is well and Lily is definitely "spoilt" rotten!
 
Hi Auntie,
I was thinking this morning after mummy had taken these photos of me in the early hours how I must share them with you and the other babies to give them an idea of what life is like in a forever home.  I had NO IDEA just how spoilt I was going to be - my very own side of the bed with someone watching out for me all the time.  She keeps telling me I'm 'wicked' but I'm pretty sure it's a compliment!!  Lots of love Auntie.  -Lily
 
 

Eye Can't be Saved, But I Can........ 

Kobe is another happy, wagging, thrown away dog.  He arrived from animal control over the weekend. We will spend the week evaluating him, running diagnostics, doing surgeries and making him well.  He will spend the next few days with Dr. Zern at Chuluota Veterinary Hospital getting the care and attention he needs.  Kobe's right eye is not an eye anymore, just tissue that needs to be removed, flushed and the eye-socket closed for comfort.  He sees just fine from his left eye.  Kobe's jaw is broken but it's a very old break and he eats just fine.  We will radiograph his jaw to see if we can repair it.  His jaw isn't painful-- you can move his jaw around and he wags his tail the entire time, happy to get the attention.  We have already given Kobe a medicated bath and groomed him (photos soon) so he's already feeling better.  Although we have to say that he was very happy on arrival!  Kobe was in full celebration mode when he jumped out of the car and sprinted into our vets office, tail wagging! He knew good things were coming his way.  We have a lot of work to do on this sweet boy, please help with a donation.  No amount is too small.  Thank you!
