We Need Foster Homes!
We typically have about 80 dogs in our care at any given time. We also typically have up to 15 dogs waiting to get into foster homes.
POMDR provides supplies such as crate, bed, collar, harness, leash, id tag, bowls, toys, flea prevention. We also cover all medical expenses. We ask that our foster homes provide the food and a loving, safe home until your foster dog is adopted.
Fostering is a wonderful way to help dogs left behind find their forever homes. You may also want to foster as a way of finding the perfect match for your home if you are looking to add a dog to your family.

Diamond Girl will be coming to us for a behavior evaluation on Friday, 3/12. If she passes her evaluation, which we expect she will, she will be available to foster beginning that afternoon.
If you are interested in fostering and you are already a POMDR volunteer, email us. If you are interested in fostering and are not a volunteer yet, please fill out a volunteer application. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
Male, 11 years old, 12 pounds
While on leash, he walks very quickly, pulls a little, but responds decently. He mostly wants brisk walks but will occasionally stop short and cuts across one's path. He will also stop and look at any dogs that come near but he prefers not to engage. With new people, he is a little distant, willing to meet adults and allows a sniff of the hand and a brief pet. While home, he likes to explore the house and yard but does not have interest in playing. Georgie is not crazy about car travel, although he jumps in as if it's a natural thing to do. Then whimpers or whines a little. Sometimes he quiets down, and curls into his car bed.
Since Georgie is deaf, it is necessary to communicate with him visually. He seems to be quick to learn the territory--the doors, the furniture. He is very self-consoling and does not beg for attention. Georgie needs a quiet home with one or two adults, might be fine with other small dogs since he previously lived with two others. He will also do best in a home without stairs.
Georgie's guardian's home tragically burned down in the recent fires in Santa Cruz. His senior guardian decided moving into an assisted living facility would be her next step so she had somewhere to live, and unfortunately couldn't take Georgie with her. He was adopted from POMDR and unfortunately it did not work out due to an intense bladder stone complicating his health. This has been treated but he is susceptible to urinary crystals and will need future monitoring and care. He also has a heart murmur and will be on heart medication for life.
Georgie has been thriving with his current foster, but unfortunately she is unable to continue fostering him. He will be available to foster beginning 3/20.If you are interested in fostering and you are already a POMDR volunteer, email us.
