For the Love of Poodles and Pooches Rescue of Richmond, Virginia was founded in 2013. We started as a rescue for poodles and other small dog breeds in memory of O'Brien and Callie, who were my beloved toy poodles and have made their way to the rainbow bridge.
Our goal is to provide compassionate care for our dogs while they are with us and to find them loving, forever homes.We were founded with the belief that each one of us can make a difference in the world, one rescued dog at a time. Our rescue has grown and now helps small to mid sized dog of all breeds and mixes. Most of our dogs have had a rough start in life and we do everything we can to make sure they have a wonderful life. We start by making sure all of our rescues have whatever medical attention they need. We make sure every dog is spayed or neutered prior to adoption in order to ensure we are doing our part to reduce unwanted litters. We provide medical care that many rescues would not, restoring sight, dental work, broken bones and broken hearts with special training provided by our training partners and vets.
We work with our adoptive families to make sure the dogs adjust and are happy and healthy for life. If at any point the adoption is not working out, the rescue dog should be returned to For the Love of Poodles and Pooches as they will always be considered one of our family and we rescue for life. All of our dogs are microchipped so they can always find their way home and are always as safe as possible.
We truly do all this for the Love of Poodles and Pooches and we do it with your help and the help of our rescue partners and volunteers.
God Bless you all for making our dream of making a difference one saved life at a time a reality hundreds of times over and we pray for the honor to continue as long as we can.
