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
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Bella and she would love sponsors in her honor. Bella is an energetic 9-year-old Rat Terrier with a winning personality.

Bella came to POMDR from Santa Cruz Animal Services. Her medical expenses include exam, blood work, chest x-ray, dental cleaning and extractions, mammary mass removal and biopsy. The mass was benign! Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Bella.
