“During these tough economic times, rescue groups and shelters are seeing a lot more pets being surrendered or abandoned and we need money and resources to care for them” said Jennifer Miler, Coastal Poodle Rescue Coordinator for Tampa Bay. “We rely solely on donations and are increasing our fundraising efforts so we can afford to properly care for the dogs.”
Coastal Poodle Rescue has rescued over 1,000 dogs over the past five years. The dogs mostly come from puppy mills, animal shelters, and owner surrenders. Each dog is evaluated and cared for by a Veterinarian and lives with a volunteer foster family who socialize and further evaluate the dog. The average stay with Coastal Poodle Rescue is 51 days although some stay longer, and some are unadoptable and remain in the rescue’s care for the duration of their life.

Coastal Poodle Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3), 100% volunteer, and run solely by charitable donations which is put to direct use for the good of the dogs.
