"Angel Dog Seeks Angel Person"
That would be the title of my listing on a dating site.  And it really describes my situation.  I'm something of a "special needs" dog, which is why I'm looking for an angel to scoop me up and take me home.  But my special needs notwithstanding, I really am an angel of a dog.  I am a heavenly white color and have a poodley non-shedding coat (great for your furniture and your new black dress pants!)  I love people and other dogs, perfect if you like to take walks around the neighborhood and want a dog that is a perfect angel with everyone you meet along the way and who walks very nicely on the leash.
Now for the "special needs" part.  I haven't had the best of luck in my short life; my spine was injured and I have nerve damage that is probably permanent.  That causes a few problems.  One pretty unimportant one is that my tail doesn't work quite right, so I can't wag it properly.  A little embarrassing for me since I'm so friendly and want to wag my tail constantly for you, but as I said, not important.  A bit more serious is that I don't have feeling in my lower parts, which means that while I might be "mentally" housebroken, I really can't control my "output," if you know what I mean.  However, if you are the angel that adopts me, the poodle rescue people have some ideas about how to manage this and will share those ideas with you.
I hasten to add that  this spine injury in no way affects my mobility.  I run, I jump, I play ball.  I am devilishly energetic -- in fact it is really hard for me to sit still (I am still a puppy after all, even though I'm an angel).  I hope that you are someone that can be MY angel.  Even though everyone is  very sweet to me here, life in the kennel is really not for me and every night before I curl up to sleep I pray that I am adopted soon.  
Dogs are vaccinated, microchipped  and spayed/neutered before adoption. 
The necessary first step to inquire about any dog, is to complete the NCPR Adoption Interest Form. Once we receive the NCPR Adoption Interest Form, a volunteer will contact you promptly. We need your information to match you with the perfect companion. NorCal Poodle Rescue places dogs within northern California only.

About NorCal Poodle Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of volunteers who rescue, rehabilitate and find loving homes for more than 100 poodles and poodle mixes each year. Serving Northern California and Southern Oregon, we rescue and adopt standard, miniature and toy poodles, as well as poodle mixes. We respond to county shelters, humane societies and individuals via our website and phone hotline. Each poodle is microchipped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and groomed before adoption. In addition, we provide extensive medical care, fostering, boarding and training if needed before placement. We have a return policy in the event that a poodle adoption doesn't work out.

We are always grateful for your donations and 97 per cent of all donations are dedicated to our poodles. As we are an all volunteer organization we incur only 3 percent administrative cost. The generous gift of time by our volunteers, support and services by pet care businesses, and your tax-deductible donations make this work possible.

Our Adoption Process...

We are dedicated to rescuing Poodles and enriching the lives of those who adopt them. Our adoption procedure is designed to find a good match between the Poodle and adopter. If a person see's a Poodle on line or meets one at an adoption fair, and is interested in getting more information, they are required to complete adoption application at: One of our volunteers will get in touch with the person as soon as possible.

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: 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.
