Shayna, the housemate of Bogart is a Poodle mix that weighs too much at 24 pounds. She will need to lose about 6 pounds. Shayna appears to be approximately 11-12 years old.  She has a spay scar so all she needs is a dental before she can go home.

Cody is a 12 year old 23 pound boy from Tennessee who came up on a 2 day transport, adopted on Saturday and brought to us as an emergency on Sunday because he had a few accidents in the house in the 24 hours that the family had him. Rescues take more time than 24 hours. It’s just how it is. Please consider this darling boy who is on a weight management schedule to lose about 8 pounds. His bloodwork is wonderful. If you can be firm with his diet and help him to get settled and acclimated to your home...please apply!

I am great with people and other dogs! I am pee pad trained but will easily learn to go out with a little patience.  Pass the word! I am really a great little dog!

Bogart is a 16 pound Shih Tzu cross who is 11 years old. He and his housemate Shayna came to us after a lengthy stay alone in an apartment.  Kindly people fed them and finally got them help ... us. Bogart is going in for Cryptorchid surgery and a dental before he can be adopted. He is working on potty manners but we expect that now that he is let out on a schedule he will relearn what he has forgotten.

Zsa Zsa

Zsa Zsa here at 5 years old, 5.4 pounds of incredible sweetness! I am pee pad trained and will go out but I hold it so I can use my pee pad. I had my dental yesterday and lost 4 teeth. Please apply if you want a “cuddle bug” because that is what I am.

My rescue donation is $400.

Kingston is a Shih Tzu/Poodle cross so they tell us. Yes we questioned it when we did see him but by then he was at the vet hospital all signed in. Kingston is about 2 years old and weighs 12 pounds. He was given up because the landlord changed his mind once the family had him. The family’s vet gave them our number. Kingston is doing well and would love an active family.

Rescue donation $350. 

Charlie Jack

Charlie Jack (because we aren’t sure what his name is) is here with us from a very nice Mom and Daughter duo who have to move and can’t find an affordable rent that accepts pets. He’s a great guy, about 8 years old and about 20 pounds. Looks something like a miniature doodle mix. Watch for an update once he is groomed! 


Charlie is an 8 month old puppy with very little, if any, Poodle in him. We were told Shih Tzu and Chihuahua. Given up because of a job change and longer hours, we were asked to help. Charlie is very active and would do well with an active family. He loves to run and play. He’d be an awesome agility dog! Charlie is probably full grown and weighs 12 pounds....12 pounds of tiny, mighty and fun!

Willy aka Possum

Remember me as Possum? Well, I’m Willy now...my wonderful Mom unexpectedly passed (only 50 years old 😢) recently. I love my Dad and he loves me but his work keeps him from home too long for me. My foster Mom suggested that if it wasn’t working out well I was always welcome to come back “home”...
I’m baaaaccck! 
I’m 2 years old and I weigh 9 pounds. My foster Mom is thinking of doing a DNA test because I’m very different looking! Stay tuned. 

Love Willy! 

For Adoption



Say hello to Kris, a young playful boy who came from an unfortunate circumstance.  Kris is looking for an adult home with someone who is dog savvy and can work him through some of his fears. When Kris first came in two months ago, he was afraid of everyone.

He now is an active, happy, cuddle bug with his foster Mom, but is still leery of strangers.  He is making progress and we would like to find that patient, special person who is going to continue working with Kris and give him the life he so deserves.  Kris is approximately 2 years old, weighs 13 lbs. and is up to date on shots and neutered.

Please also consider the listing for





These dogs, while not PRCT dogs, are also looking for new homes.  Please use the contact information provided on their listing.


Arlo came to us as a two year old 8 years ago. We adopted him out then. His adoptive family gave him back recently because of their declining health issues. Arlo is a great little guy that we are getting to know once again. As is the case with most toys, Arlo has only 4 canines left, so no need for yearly dentals.  He eats well..as a matter of fact he is watching his calories! He will need eye drops daily. Arlo is probably happy to be back...he most likely was not a fan of the young mini Poodle puppy that got to stay with his family....


McKenzie came to us from a family that couldn’t care for her any longer. This little 1-2 year old Maltese/Yorkie Mix who weighs 10 pounds has been with us for a while decompressing and getting to know that the world is a good place, not a scary place! She’s making progress in her foster home, one day at a time. We are hoping that McKenzie keeps on progressing! Her grooming appointment is coming up. We will update! 


Meet GiGi an 8 year old, 10 pound Poodle who has a story to tell. The rage right now is to bring up dogs from the South that you pick from a website with cute photos. What happened to GiGi and probably countless other dogs is that once here...if the match is not a good one for either dog or family, as was the case with GiGi, it’s a problem!  Yes, the Southern rescue will take the dog back but the contract states 14-28 DAYS before the transport can arrange for pick up. We were called to help by the family. Through a myriad of back and forth emails, texts, tears, phone calls between the Southern rescue, the family and us, GiGi is here. And now we have this darling little girl WITH HEARTWORM!!!!

Of course she is in treatment...a long drawn out affair of about 120 days with fingers crossed that all goes well. 
Please keep this very sweet girl in your thoughts and prayers. The treatment is long, hard, expensive and totally avoidable.
