Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
Shaggy Rogers
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Shaggy Rogers! This darling dog would love sponsors in his honor. Shaggy is a 12-year-old, 26 pound small mixed breed.

Shaggy came to us from Santa Cruz Animal Shelter. His medical expenses include an exam, blood work, urinalysis, two mass removals and an ophthalmology consult. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Shaggy.

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
