A word about adopting a rescued dog:

Health questions: Dogs picked up as strays or turned in to shelters come with little or no health history. Every dog taken in to our rescue is seen and evaluated by a vet before being made available for adoption. All dogs are made current on vaccinations and tested for Lyme Disease and heartworms.  They are spayed or neutered.  We can make no health guarantees beyond what a veterinarian is able to find on physical examination.  We endeavor to disclose all health information that is available to adopters.  Owner-surrendered dogs come with as much health history as is available and all health history on these dogs is revealed to adopters. 

 FeesWe ask for adoption donations on every dog we place with no exceptions.  Fees may be reduced for geriatric or special needs dogs. 100% of the fees collected for our dogs go to pay the vet bills of the dogs to help get them into loving homes. 

 Children: Our rule of thumb when placing rescued dogs in homes with small children is to err on the side of extreme caution.  We prefer not to place a small Poodle (Toy or Mini) in a home with small children.  We prefer not to place a Standard Poodle in a home with children under the age of 6. We will accept and review applications and can make decisions based on home visits with the child or children present.

 Fences : Our preference is to place a rescued dog in a home with a fully fenced yard; however our goal is to place dogs in homes. We will consider each circumstance with the best interest of the people and the dogs uppermost in mind. 






Ollie is a 3 year old Toy Poodle. He will need a home that understands the personality of a Toy dog. He can be a bit reactive around his food and does not seem to love being held, but he loves ear scratches. Ollie is neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm and tickborne diseases negative and microchipped. Adoption fee $500.


This dear little fellow is Pat. He is one of the sweetest Poodles we have ever had in our program.

Pat is being adopted and will be having surgery to remove the cataracts he has in both eyes.

Donations in his name will be gratefully accepted and acknowledged. See the PayPal button on the last page of the website.








We knew that there was a beautiful Poodle under all that hair. And here he is! Meet Harry. A 3 y/o nm Standard Poodle who was removed from a neglect situation, and is now enjoying the feeling of sunshine on his skin.  Harry has made huge progress in Rescue. He is learning to interact with people, meeting and greeting other dogs; he sits nicely for a treat, waits for his lead to be put on.  He is current on all vaccines, microchipped, negative for HW and tickborne diseases. He would do best in a home with a fenced yard. Adoption fee $500








Marshall is a 5 year old neutered male Standard Poodle. He will do best as an only dog, but in Rescue, he has learned to be less reactive of other dogs. He is current on all vaccines, HW and tickborne diseases negative and microchipped. Adoption fee $500.


 This handsome guy is Diesel and he is being fostered in Massachusetts.

See our Poodles !! Does anyone touch your heart? If you have already sent in an application and are still hoping to adopt, send an email to cindy@midatlanticpoodlerescue

Thanks for considering Rescue !







Chloe and Peanut

were adopted together.  





 We will refer interested applicants to reputable breeders of health tested dogs if they would like a puppy. 

We believe that everyone who wants one, and can care for one, should have a Poodle, but we recognize that Rescued dogs may not be right for everyone.

We prefer to have applications in advance so that when we take in dogs from owners or shelters, we can place them in homes as soon as possible. 

Thanks for considering Rescue!!
