Picket Fence Poodle Rescue / Rehome Mission Statement:
PICKET FENCE POODLE RESCUE and Re-home is a charitable and educational organization to rescue and supply Poodles with love, shelter, food, human companionship, medical care and spay-neuter services until permanent placement is secured into a pre-screened loving home, as long as the Poodle is not dangerous to humans or other dogs.
PICKET FENCE POODLE RESCUE and Re-home will accept an adoptable Poodle who is either abandoned in a shelter, or purchased/rescued by any concerned person, or living with an owner who can no longer care for the Poodle. We also participate in rescue and placement of Poodles who are culled from Breeders or Puppy Mills.
PICKET FENCE POODLE RESCUE and Re-home feels educating and informing the public about responsible pet ownership is very important as well as reviving the spirit of volunteerism in our great country along with knowledge about the commercial dog breeding industry in America.
PICKET FENCE POODLE RESCUE and Re-home wishes to eliminate the euthanasia of any healthy, adoptable Poodles. We do not accept euthanasia as a means of population control for animals. We believe each Poodle’s life is meaningful and each deserves a loving home. We take responsibility for each Poodle rescued and placed through Picket Fence Poodle Rescue for the rest of the dog’s natural life.
We enjoy meeting with families interested in adopting one of our Poodles. However, everyone must understand that because we are a home, family and foster care environment and NOT a shelter, we do require an “Application For Adoption” to be filled out first.
Please let us know which Poodle you are interested in adopting. We do not keep names and information about people interested in adopting a Poodle from us as this becomes very time consuming and many people find another Poodle somewhere else. Thank you for understanding.
As with most all rescue groups, our time is precious and our safety is important. The Application is to help us determine if the Poodle is right for your situation and also used for our security.
Sadly, it is the world we now live in so thank you for your understanding and patience with us as we receive and go over the applications we receive for the Poodles available for adoption.
Like most all rescue groups, because we do home visits before and occasionally after the adoption, we do NOT adopt our Poodles to homes more than 500 miles (1 days drive) from our location here in central Minnesota.
Also, you must put the NAME OF THE POODLE WHO IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION on our “Adoption Application”. Any applications without a specific Poodle’s name will not be accepted.
Answering the questions on this questionnaire does not constitute a contract on our part to provide you with a Poodle, nor does it obligate you to adopt one. Your answers to these questions are not the only factor in the determination of your suitability as a rescue or rehome Poodle owner.
Please take the time to answer these questions to the best of your ability. We have many questions on our Adoption Application (which is standard procedures at most reputable adoption places), so please allow enough time to complete.
