CAROLINA POODLE RESCUE
November 2, 2013

Shortly after my first adoption from Carolina Poodle Rescue I wrote a review from an adopters point of view. Now I would like others to know this organization from my roll as a volunteer. There have been those that have made applications that were not approved and I am sure some of those have been disappointed. Any time there is a question the applicants always get an opportunity to explain and work through the problem. This is done because some of these dogs come from deplorable conditions and no one wants them to go into a home where they will not thrive. That is not good for the family or the dog. We also do not want them returned as it is not good for the dog to be bounced around. The dog and the family are matched as to family conditions and temperament of the dog as best as possible. The people that foster or run the kennel try to get an understanding of the dog and do the best that they can to inform the adopter of any problem the dog has. We have counselors that screen the applications and converse with the applicant, there are people that foster dogs until the right home is found, people are scattered all over that pull dogs from shelters that are on the kill list and transport them to a proper place, a person that keeps track of information and distributes this to the proper volunteers, so many other jobs that are needed to keep this organization going. All of these people are non paid and have only one goal. That is to rescue and find good homes for these dogs. Training is given to those that volunteer and have to be approved. Dogs are not put up for adoption just to get rid of them, in fact dogs that are not adoptable have a home for life with proper care. I work along several other rescue groups and they do the best they can but their method of securing homes for their animals can not compare to Carolina Poodle Rescue. The interest of the dog is primary otherwise why would someone like myself spend thousands of dollars and devote all the time I can give to help? For a person to appreciate what Carolina Poodle Rescue does they have to see the whole picture as I do. I will work and help this organization as long as possible.

CAROLINA POODLE RESCUE
December 7, 2012

I found Carolina Poodle Rescue November 2011 after l lost my poodle Toby. I had always purchased my poodles as pups, but since we are very much older seniors, I did not want a puppy but had to have another poodle. I found the process this organization has to qualify adopters was much superior than most. The care they give their dogs and other animals is excellent and loving. I can't tell you how many volunteers work with this group giving their time and money. I glady give my time and money when needed. Once you start helping you can not stop if you care about animals. I can not praise this organization and the volunteers enough. I have adopted a Yorkie and taken a 14 year old toy poodle that needed a home also have fostered two poodles. I would do more if possible as this organization holds my heart.
