Uptown Girl's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Uptown Girl's Story...
Poor Uptown Girl was in the worst shape of our recent mill rescues, but is a complete sweetheart that just wants to be loved. She is a ~6 year old mini poodle who has a HUGE mammary tumor (a result of not having been spayed), rotting teeth, and her legs are covered in bites and bruises from being attacked by another dog. She lived her whole life in a cage in horrible conditions being used for breeding but is desperate to finally have the loving home she deserves. Please email an application if you are interested.

Saving puppy mill dogs is very rewarding but costly for us- these dogs all come to us in need of medical care to prepare them for adoption and our vet bills are already huge. All need to be spayed/neutered, most need dental care to clean and remove rotted teeth from their years of neglect, many have ear, eye, and skin infections, and some have hernias, tumors, etc. Please consider donating through our website to help us continue to help them. These dogs are usually timid at first but sweet and forgiving and LOVE other dogs. They do best in calmer adult homes that will give them time to adjust and learn to enjoy life in a "real home" for the first time in their lives. Thank you to our rescue partner No More Tears for helping to save these dogs from horrible fates!

We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Uptown Girl, a Oak Ridge Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Oak Ridge, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Oak Ridge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Ridge already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oak Ridge breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
