Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Conga! This darling dog would love sponsors in her honor. Conga is a 12-year-old, 10 pound Miniature Pinscher.

Conga came to us from San Jose Animal Shelter. Her medical expenses include an exam, blood work, urinalysis, extensive dental, two hernia repairs, two mass removals and biopsies. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Conga.

Help POMDR Build an Intake and Care Center

Goal: $2,000,000
We are currently raising funds for our very own Intake and Care Center. We will hire our own veterinary staff to provide medical care for the dogs we bring into our program.

With the support of several generous donors, we were able to purchase the property next door to our headquarters in Pacific Grove. The next step is to raise the funds needed to build and staff the clinic
