Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida Saves the Throwaways Nobody Wants
For Five Years, the Climer School of Real Estate has been supporting Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida
It is amazing how many pets are discarded or dropped off every day, and how many dogs are abused by humans.
Pam Matera and Andy Brown, (the owners of The Climer School of Real Estate) are animal lovers. They love dogs and cats. When they were ready to get their first dog together, they made list of what they were looking for.They wanted a smaller dog and realized they needed a dog that didn’t shed. They were hoping to be able to take their dog up to the office with them on a day-to-day basis.
They also realized they were looking for an older dog because they really were not in a position to handle the energy of a puppy or the constant needs of a puppy.
While they were talking about this, they also realized that one issue that was on both of their hearts was to rescue a dog that needed a new, good home. There are so many dogs in this position, patiently waiting for a loving home and family.
Good friends of theirs, Bree and Joel Goldstein, were foster parents for a local organization called Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida. At times Bree and Joel had up to three dogs that they were actively fostering, in addition to their own dog, who were waiting for adoption for their own forever family.

We went over for a dinner party one night and we discovered Quincy. Quincy latched onto Pam, laying on her lap all night, and got into both of our hearts. We talked about it and we were both thinking the same thing: we wanted to adopt Quincy.
We told our friends and they were overjoyed and ecstatic. Quincy was setting records for being fostered as nobody wanted him because he had so many problems. When we contacted Poodle and Pooch and applied for Quincy, they thought it was a prank.
Nobody wanted Quincy. Quincy was already 13 years old. He had bad knees, bad hips, didn’t see too well, had a chronic sinus infection, and was slightly (meaning extremely) cantankerous. But there was something about him.
|Quincy was 'the man'|
Our friends Bree and Joel actually had to convince Poodle and Pooch that they knew us and that we were serious.
When we picked him up, we were told that it didn’t work out in a couple of days they would understand, and we could return him. We had no intentions of returning him.
After we informed Poodle and Pooch that we were keeping Quincy, it was then that they told us about how we really did save his life. He had been rescued from one of the worst animal shelters in Georgia and was in such bad condition that he had to be flown down to Florida.
By angelic happenstance, we even found a YouTube video on the Poodle and Pooch YouTube channel of Quincy being rescued in Georgia and they delivered to his saviors in Florida.
It broke our hearts all over again. It was also after he became 'permanent' that our friends Brie and Joel told us that when they got Quincy, they had to sleep with him on the bathroom floor for two nights in a row because he was in such bad shape they did not think he would survive the night.
We took a dog that no one wanted and that was on the verge of dying and turned him into one of the most amazing pets anyone has ever met. No one can explain why, but Quincy got into everyone’s heart.
We think it’s because the souls of older dogs realize what is going on and appreciate the quality of life at the end of their years is being gifted to them.

Sadly, we had to say goodby to Quincy too early as his stomach twisted. It took us a few months of grief but when we were ready, we went back to Poodle and Pooch Rescue. We now have Randall.
We renamed him Randall from Rascal because our new favorite TV show is 'This Is Us' and Randall is the adopted one of the trio.
Randall is now 16 years old and he is been with us for three years. He has lived longer than he should because of the quality of life he now enjoys with a loving family and a safe home.
The changes in Randall over time as he finally chose to trust us and let himself be safe and loved are astounding.

Both of these older dogs were neglected and abused. It took them a long time to learn to trust us with their safety and their hearts. But it was worth it. For us and for them.
We love rescuing the older dogs that have been abused and neglected because not as many people want them yet they still need and deserve a safe and loving home.
Many people want to adopt the younger dogs because they have young families. We understand. The older dogs are the ones that are on our hearts so that is the way the we serve and help.
They always have a new and steady supply https://poodleandpoochrescue.org/save_a_dog .
Poodle and Pooch Rescue is an outstanding organization and they work miracles on a daily basis for dogs that have been thrown away by their owners and by society. Andy, Pam, and the Climer School of Real Estate donate to them on a regular basis. Caring for these thrown away dogs is not free and they need help.
