Neglected Poodle Gets A New Look And A New Home

A frightened poodle was rescued from a terrible neglect situation. The poor dog’s fur was matted and she didn’t trust people. It is uncertain what the poor dog had endured so far, but she was finally safe.

Autumn was surrendered to Needy Paws Rescue in need of some serious TLC. After a few gentle people spent some time with Autumn, she started to come around. She was immediately treated to a doggie spa day that alleviated her of all her matted fur. A couple hours later, she emerged looking beautiful and happy.

The sweet dog’s life was about to change forever. Someone recently submitted an application to the rescue in search of a Standard Poodle. A meeting was scheduled and it was love at first sight. The woman renamed Autumn to Harlow. Harlow’s days are now spent surrounded in love and full of belly scratches.

It is National Feed A Rescue Pet Week. Last year we beat our goal of feeding 3 million rescue pets. This year our goal is to provide 5 million meals to rescue pets, but we need your help!

Thanks to money saved from donated food from’s Rescue Bank program, Needy Paws Rescue can shift funds to provide medical care to injured and sick animals. “Without’s Rescue Bank, we would not be able to receive donated food and supplies that reduce our overhead costs and help us continue to use our monetary donations directly for the rescue dogs.”

Rescue Bank has donated over 275 million meals to animals in need. It is the world’s largest pet food distribution network. The goal is to donate pet food to shelters, rescues and sanctuaries to help feed the animals until they find forever homes. Pet food is the number one expense for rescues, usually taking their whole budget. This leaves little or nothing for vet care and treatment. Rescue Bank steps up to help by sending donated food to rescues in need. The money a rescue or shelter saves on buying food can then be used for vet care, vaccinations, adoptions and much more.

Help feed animals in need by donating to Rescue Bank. Just $10 ships 400 meals – donate now! For every $1 donated, you save a rescue $17 to help an animal in need.
