All rescues are not the same. Want to adopt from a reputable Poodle Rescue but maybe The Poodle Patch doesn't have who you are looking for? Or you live too far away? Please see Poodle Club of America's Rescue Referral. They also have lots of good Poodle information for us Poodle Lovers!

These are my Standard Poodles. They are Certified Therapy Dogs. They were also rescues.

Sophie is a wonderful example of what a rescue can blossom into. Sophie was living on a chain in a backyard, without shelter, producing puppies before we met. In addition to battling health issues, we had to work through multiple behavioral issues. Sophie later graduated top of her obedience class with ArkLaTex Obedience Training Club. She is a now a Canine Good Citizen and Certifed Therapy Dog with Therapy Dogs International. She is also an excellent water retriever.


Donations of food are always welcome. Unlike city run shelters, we have no paid employees, receive no city funds, and have no facility. Our volunteers give their time and homes to these animals. We use adoption fees and donations to provide vet care, food and supplies.

Luau Sophie

In case you didn't know Sophie's chauffer at Wadley Regional Medical Center was not accoustomed to giving Luau girls a ride. He made an exception today and drove Sophie to the front door so she could make her therapy dog appointment as scheduled.

From living on a chain producing puppies to top of her Obedience class and Therapy dog certified


We are primarily a Standard Poodle Rescue. We rescue all others in need when there is space available. We are a small group of volunteers trying to make a difference. We work full time jobs and volunteer countless hours of our time to this organization. We can always use more volunteers.

Where is Texarkana?

Well, we are on the border of Texas and Arkansas in the southwest corner of Arkansas and the northeast corner of Texas. We are 2 hours from Little Rock, Ar., 1.5 hours from Shreveport, LA., and 3 hours from Dallas, TX.

Pet owners, please have ID on your pets at all times.

We often get calls about "found" pets with no ID. Please take the time to be sure your pets have proper ID tag, Rabies tag, and City tag.

1. An ID tag with name, address, and phone number. This is inexpensive. Having a microchip is more costly, but it never comes off.

2. A current rabies tag. The law requires pets have this, and owners can be fined if they donít.

3. A city tag. You can get this from City Hall at 3rd & Texas Boulevard in Texarkana for $3.00, and this tag must be renewed each year. Again, a fine can be assessed if pets donít have a city tag.
