Frequently Asked Questions
Do we have Charitable Status and why have we registered?
Poodle Network UK (PNUK) is Registered with the Charities Commission and our Charity Number is 1163333. PNUK wanted our donors and supporters to have the absolute certainty that 100% of their donations goes to the care and continued welfare of the Poodles. The founding Trustees wanted to ensure no individual or volunteer benefited from the donations we received; our registration ensures this.
What Poodles do you rescue?
How are our fosterers chosen?
Each fosterer is required to complete a comprehensive assessment about their knowledge and experience with Poodles and their traits, behaviour and training and must pass a thorough home check before being approved as a fosterer. If you would like to be a fosterer, please contact the trustees.
What assessments do the dogs go through?
We ask previous owners to complete an assessment form about the dog they are turning over to our care; we expect this to be an honest assessment about the dog but have no way to verify the information. We take all poodles (except dangerous dogs which fall under the Dangerous Doga Act 1991 & updates) no matter what their needs; the assessment is needed so we can find the correct fosterer and home which is best suited to the dog. Fosterers complete a thorough assessment of the dog and any issues and prepare the dogs to be rehomed. When needed we have behaviourists who work with the fosterers to develop rehabilitation programs.
