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:
Male, 4 years old, 40 pounds
Elco came to us because his guardians moved to a location where they could no longer have him.
Elco is currently at the vet clinic awaiting his medical workup. He will need a foster lined up so he can leave once he is done! Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
Male, 10 years old, 55 pounds
Sailor came to us from Hollister Animal Shelter where he was picked up as a stray.
Sailor is currently in a foster home but sadly discovered that her roommate is very allergic to dogs. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
Male, 9 years old, 27 pounds
Wynn has seizures that seem to be mostly controlled with medication three times daily. He is a champ at taking his pills and enjoys pill pockets! We are hopeful we can find someone who is able to understand sweet Wynn's medical needs and give him the happy life he deserves. He promises to love you for it!
Sadly, his guardian could no longer care for Wynn, and that is why he needs to find a new home.
Wynn is currently at a temporary foster home but we are looking for a new foster home for him. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
Female, 13 years old, 23 pounds
She enjoys the company of adults and would prefer to be the only doggie in the house so she can get all the attention, all the time. She is great with other dogs though and can do well in a home with other dogs. Matilda loves her regular walks and knows how to use a doggie door.
She has Cushing's disease, which is treated by medication she will need for her lifetime.
Matilda originally came to us from Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter after her previous guardian entered hospice care. She was adopted from POMDR in October 2017, but then that person passed away. She has been bounced around a lot, but it is her turn to find her forever home now!
Matilda is currently at the clinic and REALLY would rather be in a foster home. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
