The Poodle Club of America provides resources to help connect hopeful adoptive pet parents to poodles in need of a new home nationwide. Those who wish to adopt can find an affiliated club or shelter through their website at PoodleClubOfAmerica.org.
The PCA is an especially good resource for anyone who wishes to adopt a purebred poodle, as it is committed to recognizing and promoting the American Kennel Club standard for excellence in the breed.
Local chapters of the Humane Society are also excellent resources for pet adoption. Most chapter websites keep up-to-date information on all adoptable animals, allowing those who wish to adopt to quickly access breed and age information. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals also keeps a database of affiliated shelters and adoptable animals through its national website.
Finally, most veterinary clinics facilitate less formal pet adoption by connecting clients who can no longer care for their pets with others who are looking to adopt. Choosing this method may help offset some standard adoption fees, as the animal is likely to have up-to-date vaccinations and a readily available medical record.
