How does Poodle Rescue work?
Reputable rescue organizations spend time and money on the dogs taken into their programs. Poodles that are rescued are given a full veterinary exam, updated immunizations and are spayed or neutered. The dogs are screened for temperament issues. The dogs are often placed in foster homes for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to evaluate their health and temperament in order to make the best placement possible. Reputable rescue organizations always take back a dog they have placed if the arrangement does not work.
The Importance of Breed Rescue
Dogs are not responsible for their own existence. Dogs exist as a result of either human intervention (planned breeding) or human neglect (accidental breeding.) Members of Poodle Club of Central California feel very strongly that it is their responsibility to help save the lives of abandoned and unwanted Poodles whenever possible. Unfortunately, not everyone who breeds Poodles feels the same way, so PCCC steps in to pick up the pieces where needed if possible.
Unfortunately, non of our members are set up to bring in rescue dogs so we defer to NorCal Poodle Rescue.
