Who will care for your dog if you no longer can?
Our mission is to be a resource and advocate for senior dogs and senior people on California's Central Coast. We find loving homes for dogs whose guardians can no longer care for them and for senior dogs in shelters.

Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
Momma Chow
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Momma Chow and she would love sponsors in her honor. Momma Chow is a 15-year-old Chow who is mellow and sweet as can be.

Momma came to POMDR from the Los Banos Animal Shelter after being surrendered because her guardian was moving. Her medical expenses include exam, blood work, chest x-ray, and mass removal. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Momma Chow.
