Review for Carolina Poodle Rescue, Pacolet, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Two years after my standard poodle passed away I was finally ready to adopt another. We still had a standard that was my husband's baby but I was ready for my new furbaby. After filling out the application I recieved a call from one of their "caseworkers" and we talked for about one and a half hours. Sue asked me many questions that would affect the dog's health and happiness as well as that of our current poodle and my husband and myself. Then we waited to see if they thought they had a poodle that was right for our family. We finally got a call and an appointment to visit the farm. We were shown around the entire farm and introduced to any of the dogs we particularly showed an interest in. After our tour we were asked if there was anyone that we wanted more time with and they also suggested Kyle as having the personality like I was looking for. (I was interested in a poodle that could be trained as a therapy dog.) There was a beautifully groomed poodle named Ginger that I was also interested in. We went in a small enclosed porch with Ginger and Kyle and Kyle chose me. We had been encouraged to bring our dog with us and brought her on the porch with Kyle and they got along like littermates. Kyle came home with us that day and I could not be happier. He stays at my heels, passed obedience and therapy tests. Carolina Poodle Rescue not only got us the dog we wanted, but Sue had made sure with her questions that our place was right for their standard poodle. We saw with our tour that they care for the wellbeing of the animals in their care. We first found out about this rescue two and a half years ago when we got Kyle. We think highly enough of the volunteers there that we donate monthly and give extra as we feel we can. They asked for Pack N Plays for their puppies and for seniors so I have gotten several at yard sales along with other supplies. They are a no kill shelter so they use the Pack N Plays for the little blind seniors to sleep together when they are not out. This is a firstclass non-profit organization and in my opinion, if anyone has a problem with them it is because they were not accepted by the "caseworker," they didn't take the time and patience that is required with any new animal coming into your home, or didn't understand that some of these furbabies have been through a horrible existence in the first part of their life and need special acceptance to understand that they now have their own people that are going to teach them to love. A group of volunteers at the rescue that frequently are forgotten are the transporters. Kyle was found in Virginia and after looking for the owners, transporters use their time and money to pass the dogs from one volunteer to another as they drive the many miles to safely and lovingly care for the dogs to get them to the farm. I will definitely adopt again from Carolina Poodle Rescue. They care!
