Adoption Fee: NorCal Poodle Rescue often incurs substantial costs to provide our rescue and adoption services including boarding, fostering, spaying and neutering, vaccinations, treatments, training, etc. To partially cover these costs we have the following fees for adoption:
Standard $300-500; Miniature $200-400; Toy $200-400
Return Policy: We provide a two-week trial adoption period during which everyone can assess if the adoption works for the Poodle and the new family. If the family or person decides not to keep the Poodle within this two-week period, the adoption fee will be refunded. After the two week period the Poodle may be returned at any time, but the adoption fee will not be refunded. If at any time or for any reason the family or the person cannot care for the Poodle, please call us and we will take the Poodle back.
Adoption Interest Form: http://www.norcalpoodlerescue.net/adoptioninterestform.html If you wan to adopt, but you don't see a Poodle that matches your needs, you can file an adoption interest form. This is especially true if you want a Standard Poodle. We have a waiting list for Standard Poodles. We always contact people on our waiting list before posting a Standard Poodle on our website.
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.
