If you would like to apply to adopt one of the PRCT dogs on this page, please read about our Process and then complete our Application.If none of the dogs listed below seem to fit what you are looking for, you are welcome to complete an application.  Please indicate whether you are interested in a Toy, Miniature or Standard Poodle, and list any other information you want us to consider.  We will keep your application on file for 6 months and contact you if we feel an appropriate match can be made.

Donner and Dancer are two very timid creatures. They don't really like to be handled. They prefer to be in their own beds. They love to eat!
Donner, the white male in the blue sweater seems younger and more hardy. He weighs 9 pounds.
Dancer, the apricot female is emaciated, fragile and weighs 4.5 pounds.  She has a grade 4-5 heart murmur. Dancer is a little less timid and accepts some touching.
We are hoping in time that they will blossom. It's like they have never been anywhere and have had no stimulation. We are thinking that they may like to be placed separately, but the decision is yet to be made. It will be determined what is best for both of them.


For Adoption


No family came to claim her at the West Haven Animal Control.
Because she will need a dental and possibly need to be spayed and has hookworm, we have her here in rescue!
Thank you Linda B for fostering.
A much needed dental is scheduled for April 21st!
We are not sure of her age but she is perhaps about 8-10 years and 5.6 pounds, a peanut!
Applications are now being accepted!

Hello friends, I'm a 14 year old Poodle mix who just lost my home. My Mom has to move and I can't go with her.  I haven't seen a vet In 5 years and my foster Mom is taking me in to see what can be done with the apple sized tumor on my leg and my stinky breath.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers!
Love Max
PS: Sue and Tiffany at Naugatuck Pet Salon said I was a very sweet (and GOOD) boy!!! 


It is almost impossible to remove the tumor because there wouldn't be enough skin to cover the excision site. The second option of amputating the leg is out of the question for a 14 year old dog whose gait is off enough because of the size of the tumor....so what to do?
We just don't know. We are thinking that we try to manage the pain and the comfort level and give it time to really see what goes on with him.
We sure wished we were called a long time ago to help him.
So we watch and wait. Suggestions always welcome.
Or, can you give him a hospice home for however long he has that he feels well? We will help medically.  Please call Daryl at 203-729-8846.
