As poodles are well-loved by many people around the world, it comes as no surprise that thousands of dedicated volunteers have formed local and regional rescue organizations that are devoted to placing abandoned and abused poodles in new homes. These rescue organizations are responsible for matching caring pet owners with the poodles in their custody everyday. By doing so, they give these poodles a second shot at life, knowing that they will be very well taken care of and deeply appreciated in their new homes.
In America alone, there are a number of poodle rescue organizations spread throughout the country. Here are two of the most notable ones recognized for their good work:
- Poodle Club of America Rescue Foundation, Inc.
The Poodle Club of America (PCA) is one of the oldest breed clubs registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC). It was established in 1932 and since its inception, it has helped rescue abandoned poodles through its affiliate clubs and wide network of rescue organizations. In 2006, the PCA decided to establish The Poodle Club of America Rescue Foundation, Inc. and it strives to save each and every poodle that it can.
- Animal League
Animal League is the world’s largest no-kill pet rescue and adoption organization. One of its subsidiaries, North Shore Animal League America, actively works with other groups to conduct puppy mill rescues to save dogs including poodles from cruel and inhumane conditions. The organization takes custody of the dogs until they are able to find him or her a new forever home.
Apart from these two organizations, there are a number of local rescue organizations in the United States that are also doing a good job in making sure poodles are permanently placed in caring homes. From Alaska to New York, and Texas to Hawaii, there are surely poodle rescue organizations located in your city that are dedicated to saving the lives of the breed you have come to love.
