Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We serve primarily the Houston, Texas area. However, we have rescued poodles across the U.S, and people come to our facility to adopt poodles from several other states.
About Our Shelter:PRH is a private, tax-exempt non-profit organization chartered by the state of Texas. We are a 501c(3) corporation as recognized by the IRS. PRH rescues distressed dogs, mostly poodles, from a variety of sources. These include public animal shelters and humane organizations across a six or seven state region as well as individuals or breeders who, for various reasons, "surrender" their dogs to our care.
Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate distressed and homeless poodles. Our goal is to match the perfect pet to the
right loving family. Our facility has grown to offer expert veterinary care, safe shelter, clean food and water, plus human
affection. We offer playful poodles for adoption. With an average of 90 poodles in our rescue program.
On many occasions we have rescued large numbers of dogs from court-ordered “puppy mill” seizures. Once we rescue dogs, we rehabilitate them and offer them for adoption to carefully screened families and individuals. In every case, Poodle Rescue of Houston is asked to accept dogs into our care and we usually do accept them. It is our outstanding reputation that makes other organizations, courts and private individuals turn to us for our assistance.
PRH is one of the largest and most fully equipped poodle rescue facilities in the U.S. We are extremely proud to have a vet on site several days a week. Plus we have a surgery suite on our property.
Our dogs are kept in a beautiful facility, part of the five acre Prestonwood Kennels. We are very passionate about outstanding care and placement of these dogs. Very few of our adopted dogs are returned to us.
Donate to Our Shelter...Donations can be sent through the mail or through our website: http://www.poodlerescueofhouston.com/urgent.htm
Come Meet our Pets:We accept walk-ins from 7 AM to 5 PM, seven days a week although the best time to visit is between 10 AM and 4 PM.
However, with the exception of a few paid staff members who see to the basic needs of the dogs, we are primarily a volunteer organization. If you will be traveling to our facility from out of town or have other special considerations or time constraints, we recommend scheduling an appointment to ensure that someone will be ready to help you make the most efficient use of your time.
Our Adoption Process:Adoption fees vary at Poodle Rescue of Houston. Normally, toys and miniatures are $250 for males and $350 for females. Puppies, highly desirable young dogs and Standard Poodles are more; senior and special needs dogs are less. We have an on site animal hospital and a staff veterinarian. Before dogs are released for adoption they are healthy, spayed or neutered, heartworm and parasite negative, current on all vaccinations and their teeth are cleaned if necessary. Few shelters provide this level of veterinary care for their animals. Based upon the cost of obtaining similar services from a private veterinarian, our adoption fees are a bargain.
