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: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 10 years
Weight: 15 pounds
Gender: Male

Weston is a mellow companion with a moderate energy level. He enjoys people and is good with other dogs. He is a big fan of treats and is enthusiastic about getting them. He is a good looking dog who will look even better with proper care and time to recover from a previous flea allergy.

Weston tends to get anxious when new places are overwhelming. He does great in the car though, and is happy to tag along. He is good on leash but would be happiest with a yard to stroll around. He is pretty well potty trained, but he goes frequently, so he will do best with free access to the outdoors. He is hard of hearing, but could respond to calls and whistles with familiarity.

Weston came to us from Monterey County Animal Services after he was picked up as a stray.

Weston attaches himself to a person and would love a foster to follow around. Weston has had skin allergies and could use some help from a foster in recovering. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Raisin is a sweet little guy who is gentle and affectionate. He is tolerant of everything, and with some TLC, will reveal his handsome self. We have no doubt that he will be a great addition to a home.

Raisin came to POMDR from Salinas Animal Services where he landed after being found as a stray.

Raisin is at the vet clinic getting up to date and hoping for a foster to bring him home and show him some much deserved love. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 12 years
Estimated weight: 15 pounds
Gender: Male

It is hard to imagine that Frank was picked up as a stray, as he has such a long, elegant, caramel colored coat, and the sweetest sugar-frosted face. His eyes are a soft, clear brown, and he is as even-tempered and easy-going as his coat is soft. He wags his tail happily, and will eagerly climb into a person's lap. Frank luxuriates in someone's adoring affection, and is so sweet to handle.

Frank is a docile fellow, content being with his person or smelling his surroundings. He willingly enters crates and rides well in cars. He does still need some direction on where to go potty. This little love bug will be a treasure for his new home and will absolutely love getting out for his walks.

Frank came to us from Salinas Animal Services after being found as a stray.

Frank is looking for a foster to share their lap with him and get him out for walks. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 13 years
Weight: 12 pounds
Gender: Male

Dewey is a furry little friend to all. He loves people and getting attention. He is great on a leash -- I have even seen a young child walk him. He gets a little nervous around big dogs, but he does well being introduced to medium and smaller dogs. He has lived with cats, but tends to chase off cats he hasn't met before. Dewey is ready to be someone's companion and continually elicit smiles.

Dewey has a rare genetic disease that causes his sclera to continually grow. This has caused his eye to expand so he almost appears to be wearing a monocle. He can no longer see out of that eye and does have cataracts in his other eye, leaving him with impaired vision. He has also become hard of hearing but is still his sweet, wholesome self.

Dewey came to us when his pervious guardians could no longer care for him.

Dewey is most comfortable in a home and would love a foster to give him temporary lodging. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Walter White

Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 6 years
Weight: 10 pounds
Gender: Male

Walter can be a bit reserved when first meeting you, but a few head scratches later and he's all yours. This little guy isn't clingy, though. He wants to spend his days near you, but he doesn't have to be sitting on your lap the entire time. Great news for people who like to avoid a dusting of dog hair on their pants.

He is an active, alert doggie who enjoys going on walks and saying hello to other dogs. Walter quickly warms up to strangers, but he doesn't always enjoy the energy level (and volume) of young children. He's used to a more laid back scene. Walter will thrive in a relaxed environment with someone looking for a fun, four-legged friend to take on walks and love on.

Walter sleeps quietly in a crate at night and does just fine roaming free during the day. He shares his toys, but he likes to keep his food to himself. If there's a cat in the vicinity, Walter thinks it's great fun to run after it. He's a smart cookie who's currently learning better manners and catching on quickly.

Before coming to POMDR, Walter was the gentle companion of a senior who has since passed away.

Walter is currently in a foster home, but his foster mom has several dogs and thought Walter would be an easy fit in anyone's home. We are looking for another foster home for him to lighten her load. If you can help with that let us know. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
