We Work Solely on Donations
Available Dogs
Ladybug is a little 5lb Phantom (coloring) Poodle, that came to Toy Poodle Rescue as the family wanted to euthanize her. Ladybug had back surgery and her physio therapy was never done so she did not learn how to use her back legs again. She has been fitted with wheels so she can get around but we will be going to the Neurologist we use to have a full examination and to see what else can be done. Our goal is to get her walking again and doing physiotherapy daily. Lady bug has so much spirit and really wants to be a normal little Poodle and we hopefully are going to give her that. Her treatment is going to be costly and we are hoping for financial support from our supporters and cheering section for Ladybug. Her progress reports will be updated along with her videos showing her improvement. We want to thank you for your support.

Adoption donation $450  Lyllie Mae was born on 9/9/12  and is a small Mini Poodle at 11lbs. Lyllie Mae was surrendered to Toy Poodle Rescue due to a broken leg as a puppy and the owners could not afford to pay for her to be treated. As you can see we took over her care and she is doing wonderful. She is fully recovered as the video shows. We also had Lyllie Mae Spayed and her baby teeth removed. She is an amazing little girl, she has not skipped a beat and her cast did not slow her down, she loves playing with toys and other dogs and has a gentle and very sweet personality. Lyllie Mae is a typical young dog and is very playful and is well trained and listens well. She is not a biter and can be trusted not to 'get into things'. She sleeps right next to you in the big bed and after cookie time settles right down to sleep and does not move for the rest of the night. Lyllie is also totally potty trained and has excellent manners. A beautiful red coat, she is well bred and has her ACA papers (American Canine Association)

Travis down from 18.1lbs to 11.8lbs After    6/5/13

In the hospital I was so weak I could not lift up my  head and they gave me a blood transfusion   
Travis 18.1lbs Before  







No adoption fee for Travis:
Travis ws born on 5/28/2006 he is nearly 8 years old. Travis was taken to his vet office to be euthanized, due to peeing in the home. It was discovered that he had untreated diabetis. The vet refused to euthanizes him and called us. Travis then went to Mass vet referral in Woburn and was in intensive care for many days. Poor Travis was very overweight and once stabalised he went into his foster home and on weight watchers. Travis is now down to 11.8lbs and is doing fantastic. He is regualted on his insulin which is two shots a day, he could care less and is only interested in the cookie he gets after his shot. Insulin costs $25 every two months and needles are $14 for 100. Travis is a very happy and healthy boy, he loves to go for walks, I mean REALLY loves to walk, it's as if becuase he has been overweight most of his life he has found a whole new him and lifestyle. No longer a couch potato, he is excited everyday about playing and getting out and visiting. All of the doctors and nurses that have helped Travis absolutely love him. Travis's gosl is to greet everyone with his same happy exuberance, there isn't a human or animal that he doesn't love. Travis lives in his foster home with a cat, so other dogs and cats are fine with Travis, the more the merrier!
Please give this little guy a chance, we did, and got him to where he needed to be medically and now he just needs a wonderful home, who will love and care for him.We have purchased a blood glucose meter for him that will go with him to his new home.

Toy Poodle Rescue

Toy Poodle Rescue is a private recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that is dedicated to Poodle rescue, re-homing and rehabilitation based in Massachusetts. ben4

We are a small group of people who love Poodles and are passionate about maintaining the well being of this breed. Because we are small we offer a personal approach that can be lacking in larger national rescue groups. We want to remain small and keep everything we do on a very personal level, maintaining care and concern for all involved whether that be the adoption of a Poodle or the surrender of one, we have an open door policy where we can be contacted at any time regarding the placement or surrender of a Poodle, our phone number is listed and we answer our phone or return all messages if we miss your call.

We are committed to good health, nutrition and quality of life for every Poodle that we rescue and re-home. All of our Poodles are placed in private, safe and loving foster homes that have knowledge and experience of the breed.gigi4

We take extreme care when working with the Poodles that are surrendered, evaluating their temperament and needs as soon as they come to us, so they are placed in a foster home conducive to their specific needs. Because we are small we can also offer a more personal approach by working directly with the previous owners or care givers. This allows them some input so they may know what type of home their ‘baby’ will be going to. They may even choose to get updates on how he or she is doing in their new home. We also offer this same service to Poodle breeders in finding the perfect homes for their retired Poodles or ones that cannot be placed. Many breeders work with rescues and re-homing organizations and we are thankful for this networking. With this type of chain in effect together we could conceivably meet the demand for Poodles eliminating both the need for pet store puppies and puppy mills, resulting with Poodles ending up in kill shelters.

Total anonymity is offered to any surrendering party.

We are an all volunteer organization, no-one is paid for their dedication to these Poodles. We would never turn away a Poodle in our connecting New England States due to injury, illness or being elderly, as long as we have space. We believe that if we call ourselves Toy Poodle Rescue then that is exactly what we have to do. Therefore we need homes that will accept the special needs and elderly Poodles also so please visit our senior page.

Our Poodle rescue, come from Breeders, personal homes/owners and shelters. Shelters call us when they have a poodle rescue that needs to be moved to a home environment in order to flourish. houdini4All of our Poodles receive any medical care that is required. Prior to adoption all our Poodles are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, heatworm tested (if old enough), dental cleanings if needed and have had all their veterinary needs met.

All the Poodles you see that are available for adoption are living in our homes as loved members of our families They beg for treats, sleep in our beds, snuggle in our laps while we watch TV, go for rides in the car, chase the vacuum, and happily celebrate our return home, even after just collecting the mail!
We are not a shelter and do not have a facility you can visit.
We keep the foster Poodles in our homes and give them lots of TLC while teaching potty training, how to do stairs and learn general commands. During this time, we evaluate the dog's temperament, socialization and health. This helps use choose the best possible match for the Poodle and the adopting humans.

We are extremely picky in choosing homes for our Poodle rescues, (hence breeders and past owners trust us so much) once they become foster members of our family, we treat them as we do our own pets. We want our foster Poodles to go to the home that best suits their needs. Although we don’t always have a history on the Poodle’s past or always know how it eventually came to us, we do have a sense of its character, temperament and needs.

If you see a Poodle rescue, or have an idea of your needs in a rescued Poodle that you would like to adopt, please fill out an adoption application.
We get quite a few applications, so please be patient with us as we are all volunteers and work full time jobs, as we do get back to each and every applicant.

If we feel that you would be a good match for one of our Poodle rescued, we will phone or email you and make an appointment for a home visit. We, generally, do not adopt our Poodles to families with children under the age of 6 years due to the small size of our rescued Poodles and then each individual poodle has it's own requirements for adoption which may require older children only.
