Get Involved

Join us in standard poodle rescue! We are a lively, high-spirited bunch, much like the dogs we love so much. LOL The work we do is all thanks to the support we receive from people like you.  We could not do this without you.





The generosity of supporters like you helps SPIN cover  veterinary bills. We are extremely grateful for all monetary assistance, regardless of the frequency or size! Please consider helping us help our poodles in need.

We accept donations via Canada If you are making the donation on behalf of a loved one or pet please let us know in the notes with your gift!

Helping Homeless Pets manages our charity status and gives SPIN the monies you donate to cover our veterinary expenses. Helping Homeless Pets will issue a tax receipt for donations over $20.00.

Fostering is a very rewarding experience and important to the success of dogs in our program.  By volunteering to become a foster home, you are the bridge that allows a pet to become an adopted, cherished member of a family.

Foster dogs come in all sizes and ages; some already have training, others don’t. We try to make fostering a happy experience for both the foster family and the dog by matching the dog with a foster home that can meet its needs. Fostering not only provides a healthy atmosphere for the dog, it also helps us get to know their character and behaviours. This information is crucial to finding just the right home for the poodle's personality.

Fostering for our standard poodle rescue is simple, although it does require commitment. Foster parents need to agree to: treat the dog as part of the family, bring the dog to meetings with prospective adopters, and use only SPIN authorized veterinarians if vet care is needed.

If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please fill out and submit the Foster Application.

With a strong team of committed volunteers SPIN is able to do so much more for poodles in need. Opportunities to volunteer for our standard poodle rescue vary from participating in fundraisers,  to driving dogs to the vet, to helping with a meet and greet, to picking up donated items, to undertaking a home visit. We are always grateful for any help we receive.
