Now You See Me, Now You Don't! 
I'm hiding, right?  You can't see me? These are the coolest goggles, they make me disappear. I can just hang out and watch the action, completely invisible. Oh, and since you can't see me, my name is Puppers. ​I'm visible on the Adoptable Dogs page of the PPR website. Hey, you can even apply to adopt me. But for now I'm gonna keep playing this really fun hiding game. Wonder if my foster mom Amy will ever find me?  Oh wait, I'm hungry, game's over! 
Adopt me, Puppers. I'm full of surprises!

______ Honey and Her "Friends" ______ 

Honey Bunny has made a lot of new friends in her foster home.  She's given them names like Pinky, Monkey and ​Fluffy. They are very quiet friends, always happy to do what Honey loves best, which is snuggle up on the bed, relax and enjoy some down time. The only thing they can't do is give belly rubs, so that's what Honey needs from You!  She's ready to be your best friend, keep you company and offer lots of snuggles. Adopt Honey Bunny today by applying on this website. 

Wet & Wild ............... Dry & Styled! 

​Yucky ole bath time always sneaks up on Miss Mimi.  Baths are NOT much fun but being a diva is hard work, after all. Between the bath, the blow dry, the nails, the bows, and a touch of powder, a girl has a lot to do to keep herself presentable.  Mimi wants to be fluffed, puffed and ready to meet her new family. Could that be you?  Apply to adopt Mimi today. She'll powder her nose and pour you a glass of sweet tea.  Come on by!!  ​

A Whole New World for Cody....

Cody arrived at PPR afraid and worried.  He didn't know what we had in store for him. He soon realized that we had lots of amazing things planned for his new life. First, Cody received a soothing bath and a beautiful new hair do.  He was confused by all of the attention he was suddenly getting, but he soaked it all in!  Then he received the veterinary care he needed at East Orlando Animal Hospital, including his heartworm treatment.  After a clean bill of health, Cody settled in with his foster mom Maria where really started to feel special! Look at the change in Cody's eyes from his arrival to today.  He has come to life!! If you want to meet Cody, apply to adopt him today.  If you want to help us save more dogs like Cody, please donate any amount by clicking the button below.  THANK YOU!

Cody Today, Full of Life!

Baby Bear Finally Found Her Mama!! 

Grace and her daughter Lilla agree that Baby Bear is exactly the baby that Lilla has been wanting to spoil as her very own. Baby Bear feels very special that she was chosen by such a special young girl! That is quite an honor and ten year old Lilla has all sorts of plans for the two of them! Baby has a wonderful family with mom Grace, dad Cassidy, and not just one, but 2 girls and 2 other doggies to hang out with. Baby has all the makings for a perfect life!  We love that Miss Lilla has chosen to rescue a pet.  Lilla is a compasssionate young lady and we know she will teach others that rescued pets are the best!  Hooray for Lilla and for Baby Bear!

Toys & Treats & Chewies... Oh My! 

It's not just the ladies who love a shopping spree. Pup Toby was in doggy heaven when his foster mom picked him up from the vet, then surprised him with a trip to the pet store!  Toys, treats, chewies, oh my!  The goodies are everywhere in this place and foster mom Melanie let Toby choose a treat, just by following his nose.  She's so nice and this place is so amazing. Life is good for Toby and he hears it's only going to get better when his forever family adopts him.  Apply for Toby today and make his day!!

Life on the Outside

Newly adopted Sully, pictured on the right, still can't believe he's taking a hike on a beautiful spring day, when just a few short months ago he was staring at the walls of an animal control cage. He could only imagine days like the ones he's living now, with his awesome new family and fur brothers Big Bear and Reggie.  Sully would be the first to tell you that tall trees, blue skies and a hiking trail make for a much better view that the one he had from his kennel. And the fresh air sure smells a whole lot better!  Life is good on the outside, outside of the shelter, that is.  Enjoy every single minute of it Sully!!

I'm Blind, not Deaf!!

"I can hear you, silly!!  I might be blind, but my ears are A-OK!" Ariel & Ally are best pals just waiting for a home!  This funny pair will keep you in stitches with their silliness. And who cares if Ariel is blind? She has her sister Ally as her seeing eye dog, who likes to double as her voice, as well.  Sweet and spicy, these two will entertain for years to come!

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 2,700 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.

Race Into Summer!

Lolly is ready to race into summer, her favorite season of the year!  The days are long, the sun is bright and the lizards are out in force. That means lots of time outdoors playing with her pup friends, chasing those lizards or strolling with her family. And summer means long, lazy afternoon naps, too, just another of Lolly's favorite things. This beautiful girl is smart, loving, happy and exceptionally sweet!  Make her your summer fun buddy by adopting her today. Apply right here on this website.

** Happy Memorial Day to All! ** 

Our very own Binky is sporting her patriotic colors to celebrate Memorial Day with her foster family and friends.

Adopt our Binky, aka Winky, today by submitting an application on our website.

Sponsors Save Lives

It isn't often that a sponsor gets to meet the dog they saved!  For Cathy, it was all by chance that she learned that her sponsored dog, lab girl Maggie, was living in foster care right in her very own neighborhood!  Both of these beautiful ladies are residents of The Villages, Cathy permanently, and Maggie temporarily until her forever family adopts her. It's sponsors like Cathy who make it possible for PPR to save a dog. That initial donation is what is needed to bring the dog into our care and provide basic vet care. Sponsors, like Cathy, literally save a dog!  How awesome is that!  Getting to meet Miss Maggie was truly the icing on the cake for Cathy, and as you can see, Maggie knows just how special Cathy is.

Thank you Cathy and every single person who donates to PPR. Your donations mean the world to the dog you save or the dog you provide needed funds for surgery, medications or special treatments. If the dogs could thank you, they would, but we can speak for them and say "Thank You" and a big Paws Up to every person who supports the ongoing efforts to save more pups in need.  We love you guys!

Thank You Melanie & The Club at Bella Collina

Volunteer Melanie reached out to us and asked how she could help. There are certain supplies we always need--harnesses and quality dog food being at the top of the list. Melanie set up a harness and leash collection box at The Club at Bella Collina in Montverde where she works. A new harness with a PPR tag symbolizes that these previously homeless dogs are part of the PPR family now. Melanie's harnesses will welcome new dogs into their new life. Thank you to the staff at Bella Collina for your generous donations and thank you Melanie for being our newest foster mom!  If your office supports non-profit organizations, there are many ways to help.  Just give us a call for some ideas!

Can't Resist This Face? Adopt Hinkley! 


Hey there!  I'm the one and only Hinkley, mostly known for my million dollar smile.  Who cares if the other dogs make fun of my goofy grin, I think I'm adorable just the way I am!  I'm unique, one of a kind, and pretty darn special if I must say so. Just imagine waking up to these pearly whites every morning!  Come on, you know I'm irresistible, admit it. Adopt me, Hinkley, I'm goofy and promise to keep to you giggling for years to come!!

____ Young Volunteer Spirit _____ 

​Maya, along with her family, are active volunteers for PPR.  Through her love of dogs, young Maya has assisted the organization in many ways, from working at events to fostering dogs like poodle girl Bella, pictured on the left.  All of the hours spent giving back didn't go unnoticed as Maya was recently recognized as a Student Leader in Volunteerism. Because of volunteers like Maya, we are able to save more dogs!  And no one appreciates Maya more than little pup Junie, pictured on the right. Junie started as a foster dog in Maya's home, but is now an officially adopted family member! Thank you Maya for your outstanding contribution to Poodle and Pooch and helping us save dogs like Bella and Junie!  If you would like to volunteer with PPR, please submit an application today and let us know how you'd like to help!

Holly wants to say THANK YOU for your donations that saved her from a disgusting breeding facility where she spent the first 3 years of her life. Holly and her pups are safe with PPR. Her life has started over and she can hardly believe how wonderful her world is now. She loves being clean and inside a warm home with soft blankets. And she really loves all the love! Holly has had more hugs and kisses in one week, than she has had in her entire life. Thank you for changing Holly's world!  Let's save more dogs like Holly!
