Poodle Rescue of California April 26, 2013


Summer Fun With Friends of All Colors - White, Apricot & Black Standard Poodles

Poodle Rescue of Southern California is a small volunteer rescue organization.  We specialize in helping poodles of all sizes, Toy, Miniature and Standard Poodles.  When ever possible we also rescue labradoodles, goldendoodles, and small poodle mixes.

OWNER SURRENDERS:  We try to accept as many owner surrenders as possible.   If you have a poodle, a goldendoodle or a labradoodle that you can no longer care for and are looking for help re-homing your dog, please consider a few things BEFORE you contact us.

  1. Am I really ready?  We are very busy and do not have time to counsel you on your decision.  Please talk to friends, neighbors or family if you are unsure and do what is best for you and your dog. 
  2. Can I drive the dog to Ventura County to drop off my dog?  If not, you need to call a transport company OR talk to us about options. 
  3. We CAN assure you if we have the responsiblity of re-homing your dog, we will find the best possible home for him or her. 


 Madeline 805 529-7405 or Heidi 805 647-6432


    1. Scroll down and look below to see our current dogs.
    2. Fill out and submit our online adoption application. 
    3. Call the person fostering the dog you are interested in adopting or keep checking our site until you see a dog you like and then call.  DO NOT wait for us to call you.

    ADOPTION FEE:  Services to care for sick and injured animals are not cheap and require a lot of time, effort and money.  There is an adoption fee ranging from $50 to $500 for our poodles and mixes.  As you can imagine our incoming dogs have every imaginable illness and injury and we make sure to get them healthy and in an adoptable state.  In addition, all of our dogs are spay/neutered, have shots, grooming and microchip.  Our funding system is called "averaging".  Your adoption fee not only helps support your rescue dog, but also helps the medically needy and older dogs.  One dog may only cost us $100 in Vet. services while another may cost us $2,000 or more.  Old dogs are less and our puppies, standards and standard mixes are usually $500, with the average adoption for mini's and toy's fee being $300 - $350. 

    OUT OF STATE:  We do adopt to people out of the area, but you need to be willing to drive or fly to Ventura County in Southern California to meet and adopt one of our dogs.  If you fly, you will need to have an airline approved kennel and the dog will need a transportation health certificate.

    Please Call!  We are behind in our applications so it really helps to call the person fostering the dog you are most interested in adopting.  Madeline  (805) 529-7405 **** Heidi (805) 647-6432

HAPPY--Before & After

Here is a photo of HAPPY as he looks now, next to the way he looked when he and his two matted, neglected sisters came to us two months ago.  They were brought to us by Good Samaritan neighbors of the people who actually owned the dogs.  The owners realized that they could not afford to take care of the dogs and gave them to the neighbors to bring to our rescue.  These babies had been fed and loved, but unfortunately, the owners did not have the knowledge or the finances to take care of three Poodles.  There is one male, 2 years old (pictured) and a one year old female left.  These are some of the sweetest most affectionate dogs we have ever had.  As you can see from his photo, his tail never stops wagging.  His name could only be HAPPY.  They have lived with children and were allowed to run inside and out through an open door, and the owner says they are housebroken.  Unfortuately they were also allowed to run all over the neighborhood.  They LOVE everyone, including children and other dogs. This boy weighs about 12 pounds. ADOPTED!!!
