Help POMDR Build an Intake and Care Center
Since October 2009, POMDR has helped over 1,400 dogs left behind and has helped over 550 pet guardians keep their pets with them by providing financial or volunteer assistance. Help us save more dogs and help more senior people.
The exciting next step for POMDR is a veterinary clinic of our own!
POMDR has grown each year since our inception. Our tremendous growth is due, in part, to Patricia Bauer, whose dogs we cared for during her final illness. In 2012, Mrs. Bauer left us a house that is now our headquarters.
The growth and expansion of adding our own Intake and Care Center makes good business and financial sense. In 2016 alone, we spent $450,000 of our generous donors’ contributions on medical care for the dogs in our program. In 2017, we will match that by the end of the year. We know that if we hire our own veterinary staff, we can bring the cost of medical care down per dog which will help us save more dogs and help more senior people in the long run.
To accomplish this next level of growth and to save more dogs, we have been fortunate enough to receive a lead gift of $500,000 from the Boand Family Foundation to purchase the house next door to our headquarters. We will be spending the next year converting, renovating and equipping it, while working with the City of Pacific Grove throughout the process to acquire the necessary permits.
|The house will accommodate offices for several more staff people as we grow over the years, and will provide an additional conference room for meetings, meet and greet space for dogs, and storage space for the veterinary clinic supplies.|
|Our immediate plan for the property is to tear down and rebuild the garage, which is currently in deplorable condition. The garage will be rebuilt to house our Intake and Care Center with the needs, comfort and safety for the dogs as a priority (including climate control, sound proofing, a sprinkler system, and the latest design in dog runs and kennels).|
We would like to thank our generous donors who have kicked off our campaign, and would like others to join them in making the Intake and Care Center a reality.
See below for our remaining major gift naming opportunities.
Gifts of $25,000, $10,000, $5,000, $2,500, $1,000 or less will be gratefully accepted as well.
