About NorCal Poodle Rescue

We are a group of volunteers who rescue, rehabilitate and find loving homes for more than 140 poodles and poodle mixes each year. Serving Northern California, we rescue and adopt standard, miniature and toy poodles, as well as poodle mixes. We respond to county shelters, humane societies, and individuals via our website and phone hotline. Each poodle is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and groomed before adoption. In addition, we provide extensive medical care, fostering, boarding and training if needed before placement. We have a return policy in the event that a poodle adoption doesn't work out. 


We are always grateful for your donations; 97% of all donations are dedicated to our poodles.  As we are an all-volunteer organization we incur only 3% administrative cost.  The generous gift of time by our volunteers, support and services by pet care businesses, and your tax-deductible donations make this work possible.


NorCal Poodle Rescue is an Adoption Guarantee Organization: We rehabilitate and re-home all healthy and treatable animals in our care and reserve euthanasia only for unhealthy and untreatable animals in extreme cases, such as those who bite or with unmanageable medical conditions.  NCPR honors the definitions of healthy and treatable as described by the Asilomar Accords.
