Acquisition team: As part of the acquisition team you will visit shelters and evaluate dogs using a screening form. Your training will be to accompany an experienced acquisition volunteer to learn how to determine if a dog will match our temperament requirements. We receive information from shelters about available dogs and we pull the poodles or poodle mixes.

Sometimes people surrender their dogs, you may also be accepting surrenders if they are in your area. This is a great opportunity to interact with dogs, save lives, and make a difference.

You will set your own schedule and volunteer times.

If you are interested in being a foster home we also have openings in the Sacramento Area.

Mission Statement

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.
