Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida (PPR) rescues dogs in need with a focus on seniors and those with special needs. The PPR mission is to save as many “leftover” dogs as possible. These are dogs that were passed over by adopters and other rescue groups and usually they have a special medical need or are older, or fearful due to past abuse/neglect. PPR believes very strongly in specific adoption programs that find homes for older, harder-to-place dogs, as these dogs have so much to give and deserve to live out their golden years being spoiled and loved.
The Grey Muzzle grant allows Poodle and Pooch Rescue (PPR) to expand the Saving Seniors Program, take in more senior dogs, and give them the medical care needed to get them ready for adoption. Funding helps dogs like Ami, who was completely matted and had inflamed skin and mammary masses when PPR rescued her from a neglect situation. After two surgeries and lots of TLC, this 11-year-old girl is now loving life in her foster home. Ami loves car rides, long naps in her comfy dog bed, and lots of cuddles. In between naps, this sweetheart of a senior girl is looking for the forever home that she so deserves.
