Help POMDR Build Our Own Veterinary Clinic
Since October 2009, POMDR has helped over 1,700 dogs left behind and has helped over 800 pet guardians keep their pets with them by providing financial or volunteer assistance. Help us save more dogs and help more senior people.
The exciting next step for POMDR is a veterinary clinic of our own!
POMDR has grown each year since our inception. Our tremendous growth is due, in part, to Patricia Bauer, whose dogs we cared for during her final illness. In 2012, Mrs. Bauer left us a house that is now our headquarters. In 2017, we were able to purchase the building next to our headquarters to expand our office and meeting space and in 2018 we were able to purchase a commercial building at 1251 10th Street in Monterey to create our own Veterinary Clinic.
These purchases were made possible by a generous lead gift of $500,000 from the Boand Family Foundation. Our new building is called the POMDR Harry and Jaynne Boand House and our clinic will be called the POMDR Harry and Jaynne Boand Clinic.
The creation of our own veterinary clinic makes good business and financial sense. In 2017 we spent $495,000 of our generous donors’ contributions on medical care for the dogs in our program, and in 2018 we spent another $500,000 on medical care. We know that when we hire our own veterinary staff, we can bring the cost of medical care down per dog which will help us save more dogs and help more senior people in the long run.
We will be breaking ground on our veterinary clinic build out in early 2019. The veterinary clinic should be up and running by the end of the year.
|The new building at 607 Forest Ave, located next door to our current headquarters, will accommodate offices for several more staff people as we grow over the years, and will provide an additional conference room for meetings, and meet and greet space for dogs.|
|The commercial building at 1251 10th Street in Monterey, formerly an Aikido studio, will be home to our very own veterinary clinic staffed by our own veterinarians and veterinary technicians. There will be space for eight POMDR dogs at a time. Dogs will arrive, receive their intake exams and procedures, and then move to their foster homes.|
We would like to thank our generous donors who have contributed to our campaign, and would like to invite others to join them in making our POMDR Veterinary Clinic a reality.
