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.  We are pleased to announce that we are now working with Hunt Valley Animal Hospital - www.huntvalleyanimalhospital.com - a state of the art facility with a group practice located in Hunt Valley, Maryland.  We can make no health guarantees beyond what the vet 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. 



"Gigi" - 5 year old black female Standard Poodle.  Vetted, microchipped and ready for her new home.  Probably best as an only dog, or to a home with a male dog.  House-trained.  Very sweet.  Inquiries welcome.  Adoption donation $500. Contact cindy@midatlanticpoodlerescue.org


"Gus" - 6 year old cream male Standard Poodle.  Vetted, microchipped and ready for a new home.  Gus is a sweet-natured, easy-going, playful guy.  He gets along with other dogs and would do best in a home without cats.  Adoption donation $500.  Inquiries to cindy@midatlanticpoodlerescue.org




Buster is a 6 year old black and white parti-colored, neutered male Stadnard Poodle looking for a forever home.  He is a sweet, easy-going guy who gets along with the ladies.  He is current on all his vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped.  He is crate trained and has done well in the house.  He walks great on lead and potties on lead.  Why is he not adopted yet???  Adoption fee $500.  Inquiries to cindy@midatlanticpoodlerescue.org




In application process.


Fozzie and Gonzo are brothers looking for a new home, preferably together.  They are being lovingly fostered in PA.  For more information about them, please contact Tammy - tambaker@roadrunner.com










 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!!
