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. If you are interested in fostering any of the dogs on this page, email us.

POMDR will provide 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.

The following dogs need foster homes:

Princess Mononoke

Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 4 years
Weight: 8 pounds
Gender: Female

Princess Mononoke is a darling little dog. Mononoke refers to the Japanese movie and the word for shape-shifting spirit. She is perfectly content being called Princess, for which she is. This princess is happy to run-around, play indoor or out, rough-house with some toys, and get her fill of exercise. She is just as happy being a lap dog, though. She is interested in playing with other dogs and would be happy to have a canine sibling. She is curiously playful towards cats but is overall friendly. She is good with kids and is a sweet little dog. She walks well on leash and is learning some basic commands.

Princess is looking for a new home because her previous person moved to a nursing home and can no longer care for her.

Princess is already smart and aware, but has the potential to learn more and be a wonderful dog. Hopefully a foster could help her achieve this. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

He has learned to respond to some commands and aims to please. Boomer is looking for a home with a retired person or couple and would be happy to have canine siblings.

Boomer needs a new home as his guardian has become ill and is no longer physically able to care for him.

Imagine having a little friend that you call Boomer! Sounds wonderful right? You can make it a reality by fostering this little nugget. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
