Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

FL. We adopt to the state of FL residents. We require a home visit so as long as we have a volunteer near you, we service your area.

About Our Rescue Group:

Coastal Poodle Rescue was officially established on March 8, 2004 by a small group of dedicated volunteers who, combined, have decades of experience with statewide and local rescue efforts.
The number of abandoned and abused poodles in our local area was increasing at a disturbing rate. Therefore, we decided the best way to assist these animals was to form a regional rescue group.

We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. We are 100% volunteer-run, which means overhead costs are minimal and your donation is put to direct use for the good of the dogs. We do not receive government funds. We are entirely supported by charitable donations. We concentrate our activities in the eastern, coastal corridor of Florida from Duval to Dade County.

Our Adoption Process:

Our goal is to make wise and permanent placements for each poodle. Think about it: all of our dogs have been abandoned at least once in their lives.
Minimum donations are between $150 and $400, depending on the age and health of the dog, among other factors.
In most cases, this does not begin to cover the medical expenses incurred. All dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and tested for heartworms and intestinal parasites.

What to Know About Our Adoptions:


A donation to Coastal Poodle Rescue, Inc. is required to adopt a poodle.
Home visits and interviews help us determine the kind of dog that will best fit your home environment and lifestyle.
Filling out an adoption profile does not guarantee adoption nor does it obligate you to adopt a poodle. Some dogs have special needs, so not all dogs will be a good match for every home.
Compatible poodles may not be immediately available; your patience is appreciated.
Most dogs in rescue are adults; puppies are rarely, if ever, available.
Most dogs in rescue are male...females are less common.
Remember, the more restrictions you place upon your desired dog (color, age, sex, etc.), the longer it will take to find a suitable poodle to match your environment.
By submitting an Adoption Profile, you are making a formal request to adopt a dog from Coastal Poodle Rescue, Inc. Please consider carefully before submitting your Profile. We encourage you to discuss the matter with all your family members.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
