We Need Foster Homes!

We typically have about 80 dogs in our care at any given time. We also typically have up to 15 dogs waiting to get into foster homes. If you are interested in fostering any of the dogs on this page, email us.

POMDR will provide supplies such as crate, bed, collar, harness, leash, id tag, bowls, toys, flea prevention. We also cover all medical expenses. We ask that our foster homes provide the food and a loving, safe home until your foster dog is adopted.

Fostering is a wonderful way to help dogs left behind find their forever homes. You may also want to foster as a way of finding the perfect match for your home if you are looking to add a dog to your family.

The following dogs need foster homes:


Breed: Medium Mixed Breed
Age: 10 years
Weight: 25 pounds
Gender: Male

This gentleman is easy to handle. He does well on a leash and likes to go for walks. He is observant of his surroundings, while having a great ability to stay attentive to his guardian. He has a soft mouth for treats and is food motivated.

Grayson's tail is always wagging! He adores human contact, and his upbeat and loving behavior extends to dogs as well as humans.

Grayson came to us from Monterey County Animal Services in the hopes of finding a home. Grayson went to an adoptive home but their home set-up and situation was not best for him. They believe him a fabulous dog and would make a great companion in almost any other other home.

Grayson is hoping for a foster to help him find the right forever home. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Large Mix Breed
Age: 9 years
Estimated weight: 50 pounds
Gender: Female

Serenity is an intelligent, loving dog that is hoping for a forever home. She is excellent with children, other dogs, and farm animals. She has never lived with a cat but does chase them off her last property. She loves walks and often would go with a pack of dogs on a hike. This friendly girl will stay by your side, patiently waiting at your feet. If you are looking for an exceptional companion with a kind soul, then Serenity is your dog.

Serenity is coming to POMDR as her family is moving and cannot find pet friendly housing. They love her dearly but are unable to keep her.

Serenity is a great dog in the home and should be an easy transition into a foster home. Please consider helping her in her journey to a forever home. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Gilmore is a sweet, beautiful Hound that is interactive and gentle. She enjoys sniffing everything but checks back frequently to see what her humans are up to. She is best monitored in a yard or while on leash as she will get over excited and venture forth by herself. She is a lovely companion that will surely warm you heart.

Gilmore came from Monterey County Animal Shelter.

Gilmore is wonderful! Would you like to foster her? Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

He could use some guidance on leash but loves being outside and getting to sniff new things. It is wonderful seeing his joy for life. Marty is a cute boy that will look even better and learn a lot with the structure of a good home.

Marty came from the Salinas Shelter after being found as a stray.
