The mission of Florida Poodle Rescue is to place unwanted, abused and abandoned poodles in loving homes where they will be cherished family members for the duration of their lives; to educate others about the nature and behavior of poodles; and to help all who are interested in experiencing the joy of owning canine companions who have a sense of humor, are extremely loyal and greet each day with great delight.
Florida Poodle Rescue, Inc. came about because of the efforts of two women who care deeply about the plight of unwanted dogs: Patricia Bonati and Martha Harrington. Gradually word spread of their commitment to finding good homes for poodles, and "poodle rescue" was born. Since the creation of Florida Poodle Rescue, Inc. in 1994 it has found homes for over 4,000 standard, miniature and toy poodles who were abandoned, abused or unwanted by their owners.
FPR ensured that each was spayed or neutered and examined by a veterinarian. They were placed in foster homes that provided love and patience to help the animals adjust before being adopted. Their stays in foster care varied from several days to several months; the time depended upon the condition of the dogs when they were received by Florida Poodle Rescue. Since its inception, Florida Poodle Rescue, Inc. has provided more than a few dogs with facial reconstruction, hip surgery, cataract operations, and treatment for active heartworm. These rescued dogs now lead joyful lives as cherished companions to loving owners.
