Each month, a hard to place dog in foster care will be featured to give them extra exposure to find it a forever home.

Sweetie is being fostered by NorCalPoodleRescue, Inc (NCPR). She is a 2½-year-old 8-pound mixed-breed poodle. Her non-poodle heritage is unknown, but best guesses are either Italian greyhound or Chinese-crested. One thing is for sure – she’s 100% cute and a “pawsitively special dawg”.
This poor girl was rescued from a shelter in October 2017. She has recovered from 2 broken bones and is now ready to find her fur-ever home. This fun-loving dog is all about playtime. In fact, she’d rather play ball than eat. Sweetie prefers to get her exercise indoors because big dogs in the outside world intimidate her. Sweetie loves all people, but due to her small size, a home with adults or older children would be best. Sweetie sports a retro shaggy look and will have moderate grooming needs. Her adoption fee is $350. If interested, please fill out an adoption interest form: http://www.norcalpoodlerescue.net/adoptioninterestform.html. NCPR hosts adoption events in Walnut Creek.
NCPR is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3). In addition to tax-deductible donations, you can support their rescue efforts by donating your car, sponsoring a poodle, or buying a calendar. Another option is to donate new or clean and gently used leashes and dog clothes for their July 21st Pup Stuff Sale by contacting norcalpoodlerescueinc@gmail.com.

Pokemon – ARF dog, Pokemon, (Diablo Gazette, April 2018) was adopted and now has a doggie brother in his new home.



Lucky – “Thanks to your article, (Diablo Gazette, May 2018) Lucky was adopted. It was the first and only inquiry he had.  He now lives in Reno with Sue and Chuck Kozak and two fun doggies. Kozaks had just lost their rat terrier a couple of months ago. While visiting at Rossmoor, they saw Lucky in your paper and immediately wanted him… Lucky instantly took to Chuck which made my heart melt.  Again, thank you for doing an article on him.” — Barbara Heuring, Founder of Paws and Pooches, Inc., Concord.

Peanut Butter – Congratulations to this special dawg, Peanut Butter had been in rescue for 295 days in CA, but after having his story told (Diablo Gazette, March 2018), he was transferred to another state and adopted in five just days.
