During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
NorCal Poodle Rescue- rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes Poodles and Poodle Mixes. Some of our dogs are in foster care, but usually up to 7 or 8 are housed at our kennel.
We have walkers come in to give the dogs a walk around the park nearby. Some of them have never walked on a leash, while others need guidance and practice.
This gives our dogs the proper socialization and exercise they need until they can find their furever home!
This is a very necessary and fulfilling volunteer activity.
After the walk, you will email your walker notes so that we can learn of their personality and habits. You choose the day that works for you, and you will be part of a rotation schedule. Time commitment is about 2 to 3 hours on your walking day. This includes time to sit in the park and play with the dogs, and on weekends check food and water. Dogs are walked 2 at time- with a harness. Training is provided. Fill out a volunteer application here:

Dedicated to rescuing Poodles and Poodle Mixes while enriching the lives of those who adopt them.
NorCal Poodle Rescue (NCPR) was founded in 1985 by standard poodle breeder Patty Moulthrop of Blue Skies Standard Poodles in Lafayette, California (now in Clayton). Patty says she couldn’t justify breeding poodles when she knew there were poodles in shelters that needed homes. She started rescuing and rehoming poodles by herself and then enlisted the help of other poodle lovers as NCPR volunteers. Since inception NCPR has rescued and rehomed about 2,000 poodles and poodle-mixes.
We are a group of volunteers who rescue, rehabilitate and find loving homes for more than 140 poodles and poodle mixes each year. Serving Northern California, we rescue and adopt standard, miniature and toy poodles, as well as poodle mixes. We respond to county shelters, humane societies and individuals via our website and phone hotline. Each poodle is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and groomed before adoption. In addition, we provide extensive medical care, fostering, boarding and training if needed before placement.
We'll work with your schedule.
