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: 13 years
Weight: 12 pounds
Gender: Male

Dewey is a furry little friend to all. He loves people and getting attention or being by them. He is great on a leash and I have even seen a young child walk him. He does get a little nervous around big dogs but 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 put smiles on their face.

Dewey has a rare genetic disease that causes his sclera to continually grow. This has caused his eye to expand as well and so he almost appears to have a monocle. He no longer can see out of that eye and does have cataracts in his other eye leading 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.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 5 years
Estimated weight: 8 pounds
Gender: Female

Patsy loves people and all people at that. She gets so excited and loving with anybody willing to give her attention. She will wiggle and waggle all about and give endless kisses. She adores being held close and sitting in a lap. Patsy isn't just a lap dog though as she is great at walks on the leash and is a goer, happily keeping pace with her person. She likes being around other dogs but will completely ignore them for people.

Patsy came to us form Monterey County Animal Services

Patsy is in boarding at the vet clinic and would love to go home with a person until a forever home is found. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Medium Mixed Breed
Age: 12 years
Weight: 22 pounds
Gender: Female

Matilda is a happy girl with a lot of energy. She loves a routine and is emphatic about her walks, as they keep her active and happy. Matilda is a healthy girl who enjoys the company of people and other dogs. She will do better in a home with adults only, as she doesn't like being tugged on or heavily handled. Matilda is house trained and very loyal. She has a soft mouth and is a true doll. She listens well and could be a wonderful addition to your family.

Matilda came to us from Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter after her previous guardian entered hospice care and could no longer care for her.

Matilda is looking for a foster to take her on walks, care for her, and help her in this transition. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Chloe JRT

Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 8 years
Weight: 15 pounds
Gender: Female

Chloe is a precious little lady who can be shy when first meeting you but quickly warms up, especially if a treat is involved. She's a smart, adaptable girl who walks well on leash, loves going for car rides and knows basic commands. While you're running errands or at work, she does great at home on her own. When you're back, she's happy to cuddle next to you and soak up your love and attention.

She enjoys short, rambling walks, but doesn't need a lot of exercise to be happy. Chloe may be bursting with love, but she's not bursting with energy. She's good with other dogs, especially those close to her size, as bigger pooches can be a little intimidating. Chloe is housetrained and quiet and just generally the perfect little companion who's easy to take care of and easy to love.

In her past life, she lived in a family with children, and her best friend was a kitty. Her family sadly lost their home and couldn't keep her. She has been a loyal, loving companion and can't wait to share her new life with new people.

Chloe's current foster mother works full time and it would be better if Chloe has someone around more often. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Buddy Bear

Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 13 years
Weight: 16 pounds
Gender: Male

Buddy Bear is a fantastic lap dog who is perfectly content sleeping by you all day. He is friendly with dogs and got along well with a pack of curious dogs greeting him at our office. He prefers slow introductions with people, but enjoys doing so and having their company. He is great in the house and is crate trained, considering it his room and happily sleeping in one. Buddy Bear looks like a little fox and is a gentle comrade who would be excellent to have in your home.

Buddy came to us from SPCA of Monterey County.

Buddy Bear is most comfortable in a home and would love a foster to take him in until an adopter discovers him. 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.


Breed: Large Mixed Breed
Age: 10 years
Weight: 55 pounds
Gender: Female

Jersey is a beautiful and unusual looking dog! She has the personality of a herding dog - sensitive, loyal and intelligent. She enjoys your affection and quietly approaches for some love. She is people-focused and loves staying by your side while you walk around the house. She does best with other mellow dogs or as the only dog in the home. She loves her walks but does pull a bit on the leash.

Jersey has mild arthritis that will require inexpensive medication for life.

Jersey came to us from a good samaritan who found her as a stray in Hollister. She came to POMDR when the guardian could not be found.

Our sweet Jersey is looking to find a new foster home. Her current foster family loves her but she is having a hard time getting along with the other dogs in the home.

Jersey has some mild arthritis and vision loss so she has decided she prefers to be the only dog in the home at this point in her life. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Miniature Pinscher
Age: 8 years
Weight: 8 pounds
Gender: Male

This adorable fellow likes to experience the world through his nose. He sniffs everything in his path on walks, including other dogs and the people he meets. Whether he's around strangers or friends, Marlon lives for just a little bit of attention. He blisses out on little scratches and loves to curl up in a friendly lap. Same goes for car rides - if your lap is available, he's happy to keep it warm.

Marlon gets along great with other dogs and cats and anyone who'll give him love. He relaxes in his crate at night or when you're gone and loves being by your side during the day. Marlon is going to make someone a loving companion and fun partner for getting out and exploring the world.

Marlon has a grade 4/6 heart murmur that was checked further with an ultrasound revealing no symptoms. This should be checked once a year.

Marlon came to us from Salinas Animal Services after being picked up as a stray.

Marlon is in need of a new foster home. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
