Who Does This?

Who does this to a dog? Guppy has been neglected for years. Who watches this happen every day and does nothing? This makes us angry and sad. But anger and sadness don't help Guppy. Determination does. We are going to change this dog's life. If you want to help too, please make a donation below. Thank you.

Auggie Doggie! 

We're listing Auggie for adoption today! This 2-year-old, 58-pound Lab blend boy is a little shy at first but warms up quickly into an affectionate, happy pup! Auggie loves to be with you. No matter what you're doing. He will sit politely in the passenger seat when you drive him for ice cream, walk next to you on his leash to any place that sells ice cream or just sit by your side on the couch while you share a bowl of cheerios (ha, fooled ya!).  Auggie is a little nervous around new dogs but his foster brothers and sisters are helping him realize how much fun another pooch can be. Auggie is learning basic commands. He's basically still a pup so he just wants to please you by learning everything you want to teach him. Apply to meet Auggie today and see if he's your match!

Changing the World

What is Poodle and Pooch Rescue? It's a group of compassionate, experienced, dedicated, intelligent volunteers who are tired of the ignorance and cruelty that causes so much suffering. PPR volunteers provide the comfort and care abandoned dogs need. We are so grateful to Stephanie and all of our volunteers for the work they do every single day. But they don't do it for our gratitude. They do it for themselves. They can't ignore the suffering. They have to change the world.

The Best Kind of Dog Show 

We ask a lot of our PPR foster dogs, in fact, performing for the public is a must. This is Nala, Honey and Hershey at an adoption event, each showing off the trick they've been practicing in their foster homes--being happy and loved and finally feeling safe. This is a Poodle and Pooch Rescue Dog Show!

"Um, is there something on my back?"

We don't see anything on your back, John.  Certainly not a tini, tiny Chi by the name of Delaney.  Nope.  Nothing there.  

Don't worry, your secret is safe with us, Delaney.  Your foster dad doesn't have to know a thing.  Enjoy the ride and we won't tell a soul.

Keep an eye on our site (or John's back) for Delaney, she'll be available for adoption very soon.  She's oh-so-little and apparently enjoys a good piggyback ride.  Who doesn't?  If you'd like to learn more about Delaney or any of her adoptable friends, you can complete our Adoption Application here.  Whether it's the tinsy Chi's that you fancy or something a little bigger, we can help to match you with the right pooch for your home.  


Henri's Homecoming

Henri's best days are now!​​ ​This wise older fella​ knew his odds of adoption weren't great because people choose the young dogs first. He saw it when he was at animal control and all the ​humans passed him by for the shinier, newer "models​"​.  That is​,​ until PPR rescued him! Finally, Henri felt hopeful! Things ​got even better the day Debbie, Justin and their children, Hannah and Joshua, arrived to ​officially adopt Henri!  Holy Cow, they brought ​toys, treats, a fluffy bed, food and a bright green bowtie--all for him! Now, Henri is ​forever HOME! This amazing family adopted their first dog and they chose an older boy. They did the kindest thing anyone can do for an older dog--give him a home! ​Welcome Home, Henri! 

For kids, Hannah and Joshua, their very first dog will be the best gift they've ever received and also the best gift they ever gave. Thank you ​for choosing​ to adopt an older dog.  Every day ​is a party​ for Henri, thanks to your kindness and love. Adopt your very own older, wiser, loving, perfectly amazing dog today.  Apply right here on the website.

__ Hurricane Hoarder Dogs __ 

Animal control saved 38 dogs from a hoarder. They got these dogs to safety and asked rescue groups for help. We received an urgent request yesterday from animal control that 14 of them had not been adopted or rescued. They needed us to get these dogs out of the facility before the hurricane hit. These 14 dogs are with us now. We will start adding them to the Save a Dog page this week. They are completely unsocialized and terrified. They probably never left the room or cage where they lived. We need very experienced foster families that have the patience and understanding to provide the emotional support and care these dogs will need. Please fill out the Foster Application if you are up for this challenge. Thank you!

Nine Lives

Nine pups were born during the night. The family is headed back to Chuluota Veterinary Hospital this morning for a check up and to ensure there are no more pups to come. Thank you to everyone who already donated to help us afford the extra care this family will need given their rough start in life.

Darby was exhausted last night

It's Going to Be a Long Night.... 

Darby was a stray. She arrived yesterday at Poodle and Pooch Rescue, very pregnant. She's in labor right now at Chuluota Veterinary Hospital. Two pups have been delivered as of 5:56 today. This is a very lucky family who got to PPR just in time. We count 10-11 pups in the radiograph above, which is a dangerously large litter. We will do everything we can for each individual puppy and also sweet Darby of course.  We expect Darby to deliver one pup about every 2 hours. It's going to be a long night. If you are able to help with the care of this family, please donate below.  Thank you.

The Road to Recovery

Booker's road to recovery literally began on the side of the road after being hit by a car. This beautiful, happy pup was discarded by his former owner and left to struggle for survival. He became one of the lucky ones the day Booker met his PPR rescue angels who scooped him up and got him the veterinary care he needed​ to repair his leg. From the day Booker arrived at PPR, his foster mom Hillary ​tended to his physical ​needs while also healing his broken spirit. Booker is ready for his forever home now so if you are looking for the kissiest, happiest boy who loves other dogs and all people, apply to meet Booker today!

Sugar Says Thank You!!! 

I had my mastectomy surgery! Thank you to everyone who donated to help me get this life-saving surgery. PPR will email all of you who donated with photos and updates of my progress. I am recovering now and will go to my foster home soon. I can't wait to show off the new me! Kisses to all of you who helped me!

 Bogey Arrives First Class!

As many of you know, Bogey spent his life being neglected. But with your help, we rescued him. One of our favorite adopters, David who is a pilot for Delta, was looking for a dog for his parents. After the passing of their beloved pooch, David's parents were following Bogey’s story on our website. Bogey touched their hearts and they knew they wanted to spoil him for the rest of his life. When David's parents called from Indiana and asked him to meet Bogey to learn more about his personality, David didn’t hesitate. Of course Bogey charmed David's socks off and David  got himself and Bogey on the next flight to Indiana. Bogey was going HOME!

Bogey is making up for lost time and the rest of his life will be amazing. He never thought he would be escorted on a plane, riding on the pilot’s lap to the cool weather in Indiana to be adored by his new parents who couldn’t wait for his arrival. This is what YOUR donations do. They CHANGE LIVES. Please donate to Poodle and Pooch Rescue so we can continue to save the dogs that need us the most and finally give them the life they deserve.  We can’t save them without you!

Bogey when he arrived. Matted and covered in sores.

After two months of care, on his way to Indiana with David!

Home now enjoying soft laps and the cool weather in Indiana!

___ Please Help Save Sugar ___ 

Saving the dogs that nobody else will is easy with your help. But without it, saving these dogs is impossible. Sugar is a happy girl with years of adventures ahead. After her surgery, we will adopt her to a loving family who will adore her. We need your help so she can live the life that awaits her. Please help us afford Sugar's mammary tumor surgery. If her prior owner would have spayed her, she wouldn't have these tumors at all. Help us get rid of these ugly, painful tumors and make Sugar beautiful and healthy again! Donate any amount below and we will update you on Sugar's progress via email. We hope we will raise enough funds to do her surgery this week.  Thank you.

LeRoy and The Toy

LeRoy's foster mom Bree has promised that wherever LeRoy goes, his new toy goes, too.  Off to bed, take the toy. Play in the yard, take the toy.  A ride in the car, yep, the toy goes along.  And when LeRoy goes for a walk, the toy doesn't miss a stride.  You can adopt LeRoy (and his favorite toy too, of course) by applying on this website.  Bring this happy go lucky, toy tossing, tail wagging, people loving dog home today!

___ Another Perfect Match! ___ 

Another pooch is HOME! Sandy sat at animal control thinking her life was over. Our friends at Osceola Animal Control did everything they could for her, but what she needed was to get sprung! When PPR Volunteer Mary showed up to pick up Sandy, her tail started wagging and it hasn't stopped. After her heartworm treatment, Sandy is home now with her mom Julie and her new life has begun!

Official DDAF Grantee

Welcome to Poodle and Pooch Rescue

Poodle and Pooch Rescue is a 501(c)3 non profit organization that saves dogs that truly need help. We rescue the "leftovers" from animal control, the dogs nobody wants because they're older or suffer from neglect, abuse or have a medical need. Their "last" day becomes the first day of their new life. We provide the veterinary care they need, a foster family they love and when they're ready, we adopt them to a family who cherishes them. We are all volunteers so your tax-deductible donation goes directly to help the dogs. We have saved over 2,900 dogs since 2008. Please help us save even more with a donation marked "Special Needs".  Our greatest need is for donations for our Special Needs dogs, some of whom you can visit on the In Recovery Page.

Ginger is HOME!

Ginger knew there was a family out there somewhere who would think she was special, even with her gray face. She waited patiently for her forever mom and dad to find her. George and Diane fell in love with Ginger even before they met her. From her photos, they knew she was going to be part of their family. When Ginger walked into George and Diane's house for the first time, she made herself right at home, because she knew this was it! She was HOME with a mom and dad that would love her forever. Ginger and her new brother, Riley, are a little older but these two dogs enjoy life every single day because they are loved. Thank you George and Diane for adopting an older dog. You are our heroes.

Please Have a Senior Moment... 

Petey and Buddy are two senior boys who were dumped to die. It's horrible, but true. Petey was dumped in The Redlands to struggle for survival on the rural dirt roads and fields. Buddy was dumped at animal control to be passed over by adopters and other rescue groups. Both dogs are with us now. We believe the older dogs deserve dignity, happiness and love. With your help, we will make the rest of their life, the best of their life. Please help us provide the veterinary care these two dogs need to feel good. Please donate below and we'll use half of your donation toward Petey's care and half to help Buddy. We'll email you updates and photos of their journey to health, happiness and a home!  Thank you.

We will need to remove Buddy's eye. It's infected, painful and non-visual. He will need lots of other veterinary care to undo the damage caused by years of neglect.

Petey was kept alive by the kind volunteers in The Redlands who fed him until they could find a rescue group to take an older dog who was going to need special veterinary care.

Give a Chi a Chance!

We have Chihuahuas in every size, shape and color.  If you want to adopt a Chi, find the one you like on our Adoptable Dogs Page!

Tiny Volunteers

Meet PPR's tiniest and youngest volunteer, Shale!  Shale has already had a "little" hand in helping PPR save many dogs.  He was along for the ride when his parents, Bree and Joel, transported 8 lucky dogs from a local animal control to our vet.  Shale was happy to pose with his new pals when they arrived at East Orlando Animal Hospital. These dogs are now on their way to health and happiness, thanks to  volunteers like Shale and his family.

Shale proves that you're never too young to begin a lifetime of volunteering.  Whether you are a child, a teen, adult or retiree, there is always a place and a need for your time and love.  Apply on this website to become a foster family or to become involved in other ways.  And thank you, Shale!!
