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:


Breed: Medium Mixed Breed

Gender: Male

Liam, aka Jake, is a good boy. He has a great attitude and a mellow energy level. He walks nicely on leash and is eager to go out and explore. He can be a little nervous with introductions, especially with men, but warms up quickly. He has great dog-manners when meeting other dogs and his behavior actually mirrors other dogs, so a good doggie-role model could help him in a home.

Liam will do best in a home without cats. He has some hair loss but his health will improve in a new home.

Liam's senior guardian could no longer care for him and Animal Control from San Jose had to intervene. POMDR learned about Liam and is excited to help him find a new family.

Liam is currently in boarding and would love a foster home and a yard to explore. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Breed: Miniature Pinscher
Age: 6 years
Weight: 25 pounds
Gender: Male

Hello! I am Maximus. Can we play? Can't you see how excited I am to meet you with all my hopping around and tail wagging? I love people, especially when they give me rubs and pets. I am good with children, and if you have dogs, I'd be happy to play with them. I have a lot of energy, so it's best if I can play or go on long walks and runs. However, I love snuggling and relaxing with family, too. Will you be my family?

I am potty trained once a routine is established. I respond to basic commands. I could probably live with a cat and would love a yard to zoom around in. I am also asking for your help in losing some weight. I am healthy and will be even better when I slim down. I pull a bit on leash and could benefit from guidance.

I am looking for a new home after my guardian passed away. Her daughter loves me but is unable to give me the time and care that I need.

Maximus is excited to find a foster family to give him attention and get him out and about to find his forever family. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
