The goal of our Oodles of Doodles, Inc. Rehome Service is to assist owners who need to rehome their dog due to various reasons. We never want to see dogs listed for rehome on Craigslist or "free to a good home" ad. Those methods can lead to disaster to your pet.
Our Rehome Service is free to rehomers and dogs are advertised to people specifically looking to adopt poodles, doodles and poodle-mix dogs. All applications are screened, then are forwarded to the Rehomer who has the dog and with assistance, references are checked, home checks are done and dogs are placed in homes according to their needs. We can aid with vetting if needed to ensure healthy, happy dogs are rehomed. We DO NOT adopt intact (unspayed or un-neutered) dogs.
The way our Rehome Service works is, the rehoming family provides information on the application, including temperament of the dog(s), vetting and what they consider the perfect Forever Home. The rehomer provides several pictures and agrees to these Terms and Conditions. We then list the dog to people specifically looking to adopt a dog like yours, here on our website and on other listing services. Rehomer is asked to approve the final copy of the advertisement.
Applications that come in, that match the criteria and needs of the dog(s), are then forwarded to the Rehoming Family and if they like any of them, the applicant is called and interviewed, references are checked and a meeting is scheduled. A Rehome Fee is always asked as "Free" dogs are not safe and if someone cannot afford an adoption fee, how are they to afford the dog?
Our main goal is to keep the dogs in the situation they are most comfortable in until a home is found. That way the dog will experience the least amount of turmoil. We work with the rehoming families and in many cases the family will decide to keep the dog and make it work, in many cases the perfect home is found and in a few instances, the dog has been returned as it did not work out. In general, however, this is a safer way to rehome, it creates less stress for the family and the dog and has been a success since we began this service in 2010.
If the dog cannot stay in the home, Oodles of Doodles, Inc. will try to either take the dog into our rescue program or find another rescue that can fit him or her into their rescue program.
In all cases, we work with owners in vetting, advice, and look through every application to screen applicants. Unless otherwise stated, we do not transport a dog out of the area he/she is in.
We ask rehomers to ask for a Rehome fee to keep those who are not sincere from applying and only ask a donation after adoption. We also ask for all dogs to be adopted on a contract, which we provide. This helps the adopter to know that the animal is protected if ever they cannot keep him/her and who to contact, if that becomes necessary.
