Poodle and Pooch rescue is run 100% by volunteers. No one is paid. We do this work because we love dogs and we want to save lives. If that sounds like you, please consider joining the Poodle and Pooch team! There are lots of ways you can help! We specialize in the rescue, rehabilitation, socialization and re-homing of abandoned, neglected, and abused dogs. We provide safe foster homes and necessary veterinary care which often includes much more than vaccinations, spay/neuter and dentals. Our veterinarians perform all necessary diagnostics, procedures, and surgeries to make these dogs well, to repair the damage inflicted by others. Compassion, generosity, and love of our fellow creatures is what bring us all to dog rescue. We are dedicated to honoring and continually inspiring and nurturing these qualities in our volunteers, donors, and adopters. We appreciate each other and our donors for bringing the courage, joy, and humor that makes such challenging work possible.
Adopt a Dog
By adopting a dog from Poodle and Pooch Rescue, you are not only rescuing that dog, but part of your adoption donation helps us save other dogs. Adopting a dog helps us pay for the costs associated with rescuing your new friend, but it can also help our special needs dogs get the medical care they deserve. When your rescued dog comes from Poodle and Pooch Rescue, you save more than just one life! All dogs from Poodle and Pooch Rescue are fully vetted, groomed, spayed or neutered.

Foster a Dog
When you become a foster parent, you are playing a significant role in our rescue program. When you invite a dog into your home, you provide the love, patience, and guidance to a little dog in need, and Poodle and Pooch Rescue provides the rest! We are responsible for all vetting, grooming, and medical needs the dog may have, all you have to do is treat the dog as if it's your own. A typical fostering lasts 2 to 3 weeks, and you are never stuck with a dog. You choose the dogs you want to foster, and you are free to foster at your own convenience. If for whatever reason the dog you choose doesn't fit into your lifestyle, we will simply place the dog into a new foster family. You get to enjoy the companionship of a dog without the lifelong commitment. If this sounds like something you would like to do or you would like more information, simply fill out the form at the Apply to Foster tab and write "foster" in the additional comments section.
Donations are always appreciated and needed, because we rescue a high percentage of special needs dogs. The number of special needs dogs we rescue is determined by the funds we have available. We are a network of unpaid volunteers who care for the dogs we rescue in our homes. There are no salaries or occupancy costs. Your donation is used only to save dogs and provide the veterinary and grooming care they need. A "General Donation" helps the dogs that are in the most urgent need. You can also set up a monthly donation, just click the donate button below, and click the box under "Make This Recurring." If you can help, please click on the paypal button below. All donations are tax deductible.
If you can't bring a dog into your home or provide a financial contribution, volunteer. Organize a bake sale at your church or hold a neighborhood garage sale and donate the proceeds to Poodle and Pooch Rescue. We are also in need of assistance with short distance transportation to pick up the dogs from animal control and take them to our vets for care. You can also use your hobby to help dogs! Do you sew or know someone who does? We need people who can follow simple sewing directions to make belly bands for some of our new arrivals. If you have a passion for photography, we love getting great shots of our dogs! We also attend events throughout the year and are sometimes in need of extra hands. If you can help, email events@PoodleandPoochRescue.org and tell us what you can do to help!
