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.

This adorable waif comes from a puppy mill/hoarding situation in Ohio.  She and 12 other poodles were removed from an open-air barn in early May, matted to the skin and emaciated.  She is blooming as a house dog but will need consistent, gentle, & understanding handling to bring out the best in her.  She does well with other dogs, both on and off leash and has shown no sign of interest in her foster home's pet birds or pet rat.  A quieter home with another dog would be ideal for her; she loves wrestling on the floor with one of her foster home's standard poodles.  Anya does very well in her foster mom's home office and snoozes while her foster mom works.  Anya is housebroken but should be leashed at first in her new home while she learns that it, too, is not an acceptable place to eliminate. Anja is spayed, microchipped and current on all vaccines.  She is ready for a new home.  Adoption donation $500

Sampson is an 8 year old cream-colored male Standard Poodle.  He worked hard for several years making goldendoodle puppies but he has retired from that job.  He is now looking for a loving home of his own.  Sampson will be neutered, microchipped and brought up to date on his vaccines.  He is a sweet loving boy that will make a very good pet for any home.  Adoption donation $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!!
