About Our Rescue Group:

We are a group of volunteer poodle fanciers who have shown in performace and confirmation, own grooming or/and boarding kennels, have previous rescue experience, or just have a love for the breed. There was an unmet need for the rescue of poodles in this area and we came together to help these dogs become mentally and physically healthy so that their next home will be successful. We do it for the love of dogs and the realization that the talents within our organization can address many needs. We believe that with all of our combined years of experience in rescue/dogs that we can provide a professional service for the placement of poodles. We currently have an application for 501c3 non-profit status pending with the federal government.

Presently, we have potential applicants meet the dogs at one of our facilties in either Baltimore, Crownsville or Silver Spring, MD, by appointment only.

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.
