A word about adopting a rescued dog:

Health questions: Dogs picked up as strays or turned in to shelters come with little or no health history. Every dog taken in to our rescue is seen and evaluated by a vet before being made available for adoption. All dogs are made current on vaccinations and tested for Lyme Disease and heartworms.  They are spayed or neutered.  We can make no health guarantees beyond what a veterinarian is able to find on physical examination.  We endeavor to disclose all health information that is available to adopters.  Owner-surrendered dogs come with as much health history as is available and all health history on these dogs is revealed to adopters. 

 FeesWe ask for adoption donations on every dog we place with no exceptions.  Fees may be reduced for geriatric or special needs dogs. 100% of the fees collected for our dogs go to pay the vet bills of the dogs to help get them into loving homes. 

 Children: Our rule of thumb when placing rescued dogs in homes with small children is to err on the side of extreme caution.  We prefer not to place a small Poodle (Toy or Mini) in a home with small children.  We prefer not to place a Standard Poodle in a home with children under the age of 6. We will accept and review applications and can make decisions based on home visits with the child or children present.

 Fences : Our preference is to place a rescued dog in a home with a fully fenced yard; however our goal is to place dogs in homes. We will consider each circumstance with the best interest of the people and the dogs uppermost in mind. 









 Five year old black neutered male SP. This dog requires patience and skill; he is very sweet but he is reactive.

He is probably best as an only dog and in a home with no children.  Inquiries to cindy@midatlanticpoodlerescue.org 


Chase is very young and full of energy.  He is neutered, current on all vaccinaitons, heartworm negative, microchipped - in short - he is ready for a new home.  He has a degree of separation anxiety and so he expresses his anxiety by barking.  He will therefore do best in a home where someone is around a lot of the time.  He will also require a fenced yard.  He is good with people and curious about other dogs, but given his exuberance, he should not be in a home with small children. Inquiries to cindy@midatlanticpoodlerescue.org Adoption fee $500


Handsome Jagger is ready for a new home.  He is 4 years old, neutered and current on all vaccines.  He is microchippedand heartworm negative.  Jagger has an eye condition that will require eye drops every day for the rest of his life.  He is patient and cooperative for his eye drops.  Adoption fee $500.  Inquiries to cindy@midatlanticpoodlerescue.org


 We will refer interested applicants to reputable breeders of health tested dogs if they would like a puppy. 

We believe that everyone who wants one, and can care for one, should have a Poodle, but we recognize that Rescued dogs may not be right for everyone.

We prefer to have applications in advance so that when we take in dogs from owners or shelters, we can place them in homes as soon as possible. 

Thanks for considering Rescue!!
