Standard Poodles In Need, Rescue & Rehome (SPIN) is a non-profit, foster-based organization primarily concerned with the welfare of homeless or unwanted standard poodles but also with the welfare of toy poodles, mini-poodles and poodle mixes. All dogs entering our program are spayed or neutered, microchipped, brought up-to-date on shots and have had their medical needs attended to. Once we deem a dog to be ready for adoption, SPIN then actively seeks out well-matched permanent homes. Our foster program enables us to observe the disposition and needs of each individual dog and work on any required behavioural or training issues. Our adoption screening process is quite rigorous and is designed to aid prospective adopters in the selection of a pet that fits the personality, desires and lifestyle of the family. SPIN strives to educate and raise public awareness about how to be responsible for and share your life with a companion animal. We talk about the importance of spay/neuter programs, the deplorable conditions found in puppy mills and advocate for change. We are most proud, however, of our work in engaging like-minded people together by providing a forum to discuss how to care for and celebrate the poodle breed, but also to come together when necessary to help poodles in need.
