___________ It's Maybelline! ___________ 

Every girl deserves a spa day and that's what Maybelline got when she arrived in PPR's care.  She had her lovely blond locks washed, conditioned and blown dry in the breeze.  This beauty rediscovered her inner diva, and along with her sister Lexi, the two are plotting their next move into a permanent home. The double diva duo of Maybelline and Lexi might be high maintenance, what with their boutique style and all, but be assured they will reward their family with genuine love, joy and happiness.  Meet the beautiful blondes by applying on this website today!

Visit Pongo in the Recovery Room 

Pongo, like many PPR dogs, arrived in need of specialized care.  Pongo is recovering now and doing well.  Read about him and some of our other new Special Needs Dogs on the Recovery Room Page. We save as many of these special dogs as we can afford because they have nowhere else to go.  You can help by making a donation of any amount.  Or, try your luck in our Raffle.  Every dollar raised in the Ruff Ruff Raffle pays for the veterinary care of dogs like Pongo.  Thank you for helping us save more dogs!

Dora's Daydreams

Adorable Dora dreams of the day she is cuddled up in a cozy bed in her forever home. She envisions a palace fit for a princess like herself and an adopter who will treat her like royalty.  A fur sister or brother would be nice and Dora will gladly share her throne. Until she's adopted, Dora will continue to charm her foster mom and play with her doggie foster brother.  If you can make Dora's dreams of the fine life come true, apply to adopt her today!

Not a Worry in the World!!!!!!!! 

Hinkley's days of living with owners are over.  Now he's part of a family.  What's the difference?  A family would never abandon their dog at animal control.
After Hinkley was dumped at animal control, PPR saved him and found him a real home with Nadia and Frank, who adore their little boy. Hinkley has a family now! This funny fellow's life has turned upside down and he's enjoying every single, wonderful, beautiful, second of it!

Poodle and Pooch Rescue has its own wishlist on Amazon!  At any given time we have between 50-60 dogs in foster care.  That's a lot of kibble!  Our doctors provide the vetting, our fosters volunteer their time, home, and love, our sponsors donate toward medical care, but we still need the basics.  We can always use food, harnesses, pee pads, etc.  If you would like to send a gift to one of our pups, check out our wishlist at  Our pups thank you!!!

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.

We are in the home stretch of our raffle, but there is still time to participate! The 3rd annual Ruff Ruff Raffle helps us save dogs while giving YOU a chance to win some amazing prizes!

A Lotta Love at A Little Pet Inn!

Saving dogs means working as a team!  We absolutely LOVE having Miki and her gang at A Little Pet Inn on our amazing dog saving team!  Miki is the owner of this happy, safe place where dogs get to have slumber parties, play dates and just plain ole fun while their family works or goes on vacation. As her contribution to dog rescue, Miki often fosters a dog (or two) so the rescued pup gets to experience the joy of playtime, snuggles and love. It's a win-win and the pooches love it! Miki and her staff are all about the little dogs and we know they give the foster dogs extra TLC.  Thank you Miki and the crew for partnering with PPR!  

And if you have a pup who loves to party (or just likes a friendly, comfy, cage-free environment), check out A Little Pet Inn to board your small dog. Click here: 

Kirby & Winston Inspire Mom! 

Jennifer is a two-time PPR adopter, having adopted Kirby 5 years ago and Winston a year ago. Some of you may remember Winston, who came to PPR a blind, sickly, matted mess and was believed to be a breeder throw-away. He’s still blind, but these days he’s happy and healthy and living it up in Jennifer’s new home state of Colorado! Anyway, Jennifer has a small jewelry design business, and she’s such a believer in pet rescue that she’s decided to donate 100% of her jewelry business profits to animal rescue organizations. PPR is happy to be one of only two beneficiaries for 2015! What that means is that when you buy Jennifer’s handcrafted jewelry, half of the profits will be donated to PPR. Talk about a win-win! You can purchase Jennifer’s beautiful jewelry at and help PPR save more dogs!
