Thank you for your interest in a rescued cat. Our descriptions contain all that we know about this cat today. We'll update as more information is known.
We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. While we like to know what you like in looks, a cat is more than a pretty face. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days? If so please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and complete the application. You'll find it in the menu on the left hand side. You'll also find a total listing of all our dogs available.

House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.

What in the world is a cat from New York doing in a SC poodle shelter? Twice per year, CPR staffers visit the wide world of New York city with the Best Friends Animal Society super adoption events. There, rescues and shelters from all over the east coast showcase animals and work to find the perfect homes. At the end of the event, animals that must return to traditional shelters that must euthanize for space are often taken home by those of us that are limited entry and have the luxury of time. Abigail was one of those animals. With most of the dogs adopted, we turned to the cat room to find our special save and Abigail was picked. She purred all the way home. I think she likes our climate much better.
Abigail would be great as a kitty with a big screened porch or other way she can lay in the sun. She has been an outside cat and while that's dangerous, she would love to have some access to outdoorsy to enjoy. She is clean with her litter box and likes to purr on your shoulder at night. She's a great classic tabby looking for a home.
Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip.
To apply, please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application.
Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.
