Organizations that rescue standard poodles include Arizona Poodle Rescue, Carolina Poodle Rescue and Poodle Rescue of Houston. These are local groups that specialize in re-homing and fostering standard poodles.
The mission of Arizona Poodle Rescue is to save standard poodles and standard poodle mixes who are in need of care and new homes. The organization says that its goal is "to do what is in the best interests of each individual dog and family." Arizona Poodle Rescue does not have a shelter. Instead, dogs are housed in foster homes. The dogs are primarily from local shelters, but also from owners or breeders who can no longer care for them.
Carolina Poodle Rescue is a no-kill group that seeks to "rescue, rehabilitate, offer permanent sanctuary and, when appropriate, rehome needy poodles and small dogs." It is based in Pacolet, South Carolina.
Poodle Rescue of Houston is a charity chartered by the state of Texas that works across seven states to rescue distressed poodles and other breeds from sources such as public animal shelters and humane centers. It also takes in dogs from individuals who can no longer care for their poodles. The Poodle Rescue of Houston accepts walk-ins from people looking to adopt a poodle.
