If you are interested in going on a waiting list for adopting a dog from
MAPR, please download and return the application on this page below. There will be an adoption donation for every dog.
The required donation will be discussed with applicants for individual dogs. Applicants are pre-screened so that when
a Poodle comes into our Rescue, we can get the dog placed quickly and thereby lessen the stress to the dog.
Please tell us on the application
if you are ready to adopt or not. Dogs are not placed on a first-come, first-served basis. They are placed with
everyone's best interests in mind. If two applications happen to be fairly equal, the earliest dated application will
be offered the dog.
Poodles in rescue are different. They have been through a lot. They may have gotten lost and been taken to an animal shelter. They may have been raised in a puppy mill and never known kindness. They may have had their world turned upside down when the people who once owned them could no longer take care of them and sent them to a shelter or to our rescue group. The dogs may seem aloof or skittish. They all are frightened. They all want someone to love them. An adopter must be prepared to give these dogs time and space. In return for their effort, adopters will be rewarded with the unconditional love and eternal gratitude of a poodle in need.
If you are an owner of a dog that you must surrender to Rescue, please contact us by email and we will send forms to you. Once you receive the forms, please tell us everything you know about the dog: how does it get along with children? cats? other dogs? men? Has the dog ever bitten anyone or anything (like another animal)? When was the last rabies vaccination? Has the dog been tested for heartworms and is it on heartworm preventative? To help you and help the dog, we need to know as much as possible about the dog. We need as much information as possible in order to be able to be open and honest with adopters about any dog they take from us. To request information on dogs that must be surrendered, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I expect to pass through this world but once; any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. Etienne De Grellet
