Our Featured Pet...



Shadow - Special needs toy poodle. Shadow was brought into a local shelter in December after suffering a spinal injury. An accident had occurred in September and Shadow could not stand up, walk or use his back legs. After a visit to the Pet ER, Shadow received medical treatment which included steroids and pain medications, His owners couldn't afford anything else. Shadow gradually began improving and was able to walk again although his walking was still not normal. He couldn't control his bladder or bowels well either. Apparently the nerves that controlled that were injured too. He spent over three months recovering, but did not completely recover so his owners brought him to the shelter and surrendered him. Many shelters would have just euthanized Shadow, but Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter is a great shelter and contacted Creole Poodle Rescue. We got x-rays and more steroids and got a neurologist vet (actually two of them) to evaluate Shadow and see if surgery could help him. The disc space between T12 - T13 is narrowed and probably affecting him neurologically. Unfortunately, since the injury was over 4 months ago, the vets did not think surgery would help him very much. So Shadow wears a belly band and has some control, but is not normal and probably never will be. BUT, no one has told him that he is "special needs." Shadow is the SWEETEST dog. Shadow is a tiny little 5-6 Lb peanut. He is happy and loving all the time. He is only about 2 years old and is still playful. He would love a furever home with someone home to give him lots of attention. Could you be the one to give Shadow the home he longs for? I know we can find someone who wants a tiny sweet baby to love.

Update - Colby is ready for a fur-ever home of his own.!

Colby os the ultimate lap dog. He came from a neglect situation which is such a shame because this boy deserves the best. He had to be shaved down to the skin, but he is fluffy now and just waiting for a great home. Could it be yours? You won't be sorry that you gave Colby a chance...look at that face...

Tyler's story - a happy ending below.

Tyler’s legs were injured by a car and his owner did not get him vet care for 6 days. He was finally surrendered to our rescue when he was close to death. He had to have one leg amputated and the other one splinted for 8 weeks. He now uses that leg about 75% of the time. He really gets around great. We were able to save him thanks to your generous donations because his vet bills were really big!! Thank you! Your help is very appreciated.

Who We Are

We take in all sizes of Poodles in need & then place them in the home that is best suited for the poodle according to the poodle's personality & needs and the desires of the prospective 'adoptive' parents. This helps to assure that each poodle finds the right home for a lifetime and is given the love, dignity and respect that he/she deserves. All poodles are up to date on shots, wormed, spayed or neutered, heart worm checked, and groomed before they go to their new home. Our desire is for the dog to become a cherished family member & in return to give his/her family a wonderful & faithful companion/friend for a lifetime. All applicants are carefully screened & must meet certain qualifications before being referred for a poodle. Please remember that a poodle is a breed that has to be groomed, so your budget needs to include this cost every 6 - 8 weeks. The right poodle for you and your family may not be available immediately - so patience is a needed virtue!

Adopting a friend

We work with veterinarians, shelters, other rescue organizations, private homes, & the other Poodle Clubs to care for and place our poodles in the appropriate home. Placement is based on the best "matches" between the poodle and the people on our adoption waiting list. We strive hard to make permanent placements for each poodle...every poodle deserves to lead a joyful life and to become a very valued family member- FOR A LIFETIME. We can email an application for adoption...You must be 21 years of age in order to fill out an application. You MUST fill out an application to be considered for adoption. Submitting your application does not guarantee adoption. A liability release is required to be signed by the new owner. Our normal adoption fee is $175 - $200 for toys and miniatures and $400 for standards - some exceptions are made for older poodles. Any dog that we adopt out to a home is to be returned to our rescue program AT ANY TIME if the adoption is not working out.

SURRENDERING A POODLE: -We accept poodles into our program for almost any reason ( NO aggressive dogs!). -We accept dogs from any area as long as the dog is brought to us or arrangements are made to get the dog to us. We drive to a limited area only. -Will will not pay for surrendered dogs. -We will pay only shelter/rescue fees. -If you own a poodle you can no longer care for, or know of someone who does, please email us with your name, phone #, & details concerning the dog...
