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.

The following dogs need foster homes:

Whiskers
Looks like: Miniature Pinscher, Dachshund
Female, 13 years old, 11 pounds
Whiskers gets her name from the long, wiry hairs on her snout that seem to belong to a different dog! In addition to her namesake whiskers, she has a pair of very expressive ears. Sometimes they fly out to the side like wings, sometimes one is up and one is to the side, and when she's very, very excited, they both stand straight up!

Whiskers is such a sweet girl. Though she can be a little sassy with other pups when she sees them through a fence, when she gets to meet them face to face, she can't wag her nub tail fast enough. She also adores human attention, and will put her paws on your knees and do a little hop to let you know she'd like to be picked up!

Whiskers is without teeth, but she still enjoys gumming chew toys. She is quite spry for her age, and has great energy walking on leash. Whiskers came to us from the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter, where she was surrendered by her guardian.

Whiskers is currently snuggled in a suite at our vet clinic, where she's awaiting her initial exam. She's already up to date on all of her vaccines, and is ready to go to a foster home anytime!

Fiona Apple
Looks like: Terrier Mix
Female, 11 years old, 14 pounds
Fiona Apple is a talented terrier! She knows multiple commands, including shake, sit, lay, and spin, and she enjoys showing off her skills (sometimes while wearing a tutu, sometimes not). Although she shines on any stage, she is sometimes a bit shy when meeting her fans out and about on the street. After ducking behind her mom's legs to check her makeup, she'll emerge with tail wags, ready to greet her new friends.

Fiona Apple is polite when meeting other dogs, although she does occasionally become vocal in her greetings. At night, she enjoys snuggling in her person's bed, but she is also comfortable sleeping in her own bed on the floor. She has been left home alone for up to 8 hours, but she does sometimes have separation anxiety and may bark for a while after her person leaves the house.

Fiona was adopted six months ago from the SPCA, but her guardian's health has declined significantly since then, and she is no longer able to provide Fiona's care.

Fiona Apple will be joining us on Friday, September 17th. She would like to go to a foster home the same day!

Brie
Looks like: Terrier, Poodle
Female, 7 years old, 22 pounds
Brie is a mellow girl who is comfortable with being held and picked up even by strangers. She greets other dogs politely on leash with a quick sniff, then is eager to move on to sniff all the good smells in the world! She gives especially happy tail wags to other dogs of similar size to her, but doesn't want fully engage in play.

Brie has some hair loss, likely due to untreated flea allergy dermatitis. Now that she is on a regular flea prevention regimen, her hair should come back and she'll be much comfier.

Brie came to us from San Jose Animal Center after she was found as a stray.

Brie is currently staying at our vet clinic. She has had her initial exam and is ready to go to a foster home anytime!

Cottonwood
Looks like: Maltese, Poodle
Male, 5 years old, 16 pounds
Cottonwood loves attention, and will gaze lovingly into your eyes if you give him pets. He walks beautifully on leash. This sweet boy has a limp on his left rear leg from an old injury that didn't heal correctly, but he gets around just fine, and it doesn't cause him any pain.

He's been polite and friendly with other dogs, with occasional posturing about who's boss. He was not particularly interested in toys or treats at the shelter, but he might open up more and show more interest in play once he finds his forever home.

Cotton joined us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services after he was found as a stray in Salinas.

Cottonwood just returned to us from a trial adoption that wasn't a match. His adopter was looking for a dog who could walk 4 to 5 miles a day with her, while Cottonwood prefers shorter jaunts. He is currently boarding at our vet clinic, but would love to go to a foster home as soon as possible!

Reks
Looks like: Border Collie
Male, 8 years old, 50 pounds
Reks is a very sweet, gentle boy who loves people! He will press his head into your leg to let you know that he'd like to be pet. When he does receive pets, he shows his appreciation with an enthusiastic tail wag.

Reks enjoys the company of people and dogs alike. He seems to gain confidence when around other dogs who don't mind how excited he is to meet them.

He is missing some of the fur on his back legs and tummy, likely from a flea allergy that should be resolved with monthly flea treatment. Until his fur grows back, it is a little like a baby elephant's skin!

Reks came to us from the Hollister Animal Shelter after he was brought in as a stray.

Shrek is currently relaxing in a suite at our vet clinic, where he's awaiting his initial exam. He's looking forward to moving to a foster home sooner rather than later!

Toodle
Looks like: Terrier Mix
Female, 7 years old, 9 pounds
Toodle is a curious and energetic gal who acts younger than her estimated age. She loves human attention and has an enthusiastic tail wag for anyone who will give her pets or scratches.

Toodle doesn't seem to mind other dogs much, but isn't as excited to interact with them as she is with people. She sometimes will tell another dog that she wants the human giving pets all to herself, but she is all talk and no action.

This sweetheart came to us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services after she was brought in as a stray.

Toodle is snuggled up in a suite at our vet clinic, where she's awaiting her initial exam. She's looking forward to finding her foster home very soon!

Dolly Girl
Lhasa Apso
Female, 15 years old, 20 pounds
Dolly Girl is a beautiful senior Lhasa Apso. While she prefers to spend most of her day in a cozy bed, snoring gently, Dolly also has quite an independent streak! When she wakes up from a nap, she loves to explore, and when she has a destination in mind, she can move pretty quickly and nothing can get in the way of her getting where she wants to go. When she meets younger dogs, they sometimes inspire a burst of playfulness in her, and she'll play for a good five minutes before she's ready to nap again.

Dolly came from a home where she was living with another dog as well as several cats, and she got along well with all of them. She uses daily drops for her eyes, and she has some arthritis that causes stiffness in her left knee, but otherwise she's quite healthy for her age. She is slightly overweight, and is looking for someone who can take her on several short daily walks. She does not have separation anxiety and will settle down to nap while you're out of the house.

Dolly came into our program because her guardian moved into assisted living and could no longer care for her.

Dolly Girl has been thriving in her temporary foster home, where she enjoys short walks with her foster's three other dogs. Because of her foster's work schedule, she's unable to keep Dolly long-term, so Dolly Girl is looking for a new foster home.

Tula Girl
Lhasa Apso
Female, 15 years old, 20 pounds
Tula Girl is a senior Lhasa apso who enjoys napping and spending her day snuggling on her person's lap. She enjoys short walks and she's not particularly interested in toys. Tula has no separation anxiety and chooses to nap when her person is away from home. She has been living with another dog and three cats, and she gets along well with all of them.

Tula takes eye drops for chronic dry eye, and she is beginning to lose some of her vision. Aside from that, she is in pretty good health for a 15 year old!

Tula came into our program because her guardian moved into assisted living and could no longer care for her. She has been with the same guardian since she was a puppy, so this will be a big change for her, but she has a peaceful demeanor and will adapt quickly to her new home.

Tula Girl has been enjoying her time in her temp foster home, where she takes slow walks around the block and naps most of the day. Unfortunately, Tula's foster isn't able to continue fostering her, so Tula is looking for a new foster home where she can lounge in the sun in the backyard!
