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.

Meet the kindhearted Cholula. This little one went through a stage of neglect and we are so glad we can help her. She is a little shy but warms up quickly to a gentle person and a warm lap. She is smart and so sweet. She is a heart melter.

Cholula came to us from Salinas Animal Services. She is looking for a quiet home that is secure. She likes to explore but she will likely end up burrowed in blankets. She is a snuggle-bug and would love for you to give her a soft place to land.

Cheeka came to us because her guardian had to move to a location that will only allow two dogs. They had to reduce their pack size to accommodate the rules. Cheeka was left needing a new home, however, it may be a blessing in disguise as she is socializing more and have positive experiences with people. She is more curious and outgoing and it is wonderful to see her seeking attention and affection. She is super cute and loves to cuddle. Cheeka is ready, and if you are looking for a dog to fall in love with and grow a special bond to, then she is your dog.

Cheeka is currently with a temporary foster and is looking for a full-time one. This little cutie wants to cling by your side. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

This unconventional beauty is our goofy, darling Rebecca. With her shortish, freckled legs, copper eyes, and gorgeous brindle coat, Rebecca turns more than a few heads.

Four years ago, Rebecca was a homeless dog on the streets of Mexico, unspayed and abandoned. A rescue mission intervened and brought her to safety. When the animal sanctuary where she was placed closed, POMDR stepped in to take Rebecca. She had ruptured the ligaments in her knees so POMDR funded a series of surgeries to fix her knees.

Despite the streets and the surgeries and the other ordeals that she has endured, Rebecca's positive nature and ability to trust has survived. She is a resilient soul who has weathered her misfortunes and transitions with grace. She's attentive, affectionate, playful - the queen of bellyrubs. She has a mischievous sense of humor and will untie your shoelaces just for fun. Rebecca enjoys interaction but also knows how to settle. She's crate trained, great in the house and sleeps through the night. She can be left alone when you go to work and will nap quietly until you return. Such a good girl!

At the sanctuary, where she lived for three years, Rebecca lived with dogs, horses, cattle and cats. While she would be fine as an only child, her first choice would be to have a dog sibling to play with.

Shortly after getting adopted, Rebecca began having seizures. She is now on seizure medication to prevent the seizures. She'll need to be on medications for this for life.

Rebecca is smart, food motivated, and learns quickly. She was adopted in 2018 but her guardian is facing health and needed to return Rebecca. This dog has lots of love to share and is ready to spend the rest of her life being some lucky person's BFF.

Rebecca came to POMDR in May of 2018. She was in foster care for 8 months before being adopted. She has been with her adopter for 6 months now. Her adopter adores her, but is having medical issues of her own and can not keep Rebecca. We need to get Rebecca into a foster home and back up for adoption.

Drew comes to us from Monterey County Animal Services. He was brought to our attention because the shelter staff and one of our volunteers noticed he was not doing well in the shelter. He is super timid and the stress of being at the shelter was taking a toll on him. He is great in meeting people and dogs, so we wanted to help him. There was almost an immediate change in his demeanor once he was out and mingling! He seems much happier and is ready for a home and family.

Drew is currently in a temporary foster home just to get him out of the shelter. This is a temporary solution so we are looking for someone to foster him Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Jack White

Breed: Jack Russell Terrier
Age: 7 years
Weight: 22 pounds
Gender: Male

Jack White is a playful and cuddly little guy who loves to chase the ball. He is hoping for a home where he will get ample time to play fetch and a yard in which to do so. As much as he loves outside activity he loves to cuddle on the couch. Jack is good with other dogs after an enthusiastic first meet but can be reactive towards them on leash. He is good with older kids in the home and has been sweet and all smiles when meeting younger kids on walks but would be best suited with older children. He cannot live with cats. Jack absolutely loves car rides and is ready to be your companion.

Jack is looking for a calm, assertive leader who is willing to get him into basic obedience. He would do best in a home with a big yard where he can play fetch, but not have to meet a ton of other dogs. He can peacefully co-exist with another mellow dog, once he gets over his vocal introduction.

Jack was a guardian surrender and we hope to find him a great match for his forever home.

Jack is currently living with his guardians but they are looking for an emotional support dog and he just isn't quite the right fit. They wanted to hang onto him until he got adopted but we're hopeful that with the right foster, he will be the attention he needs to find his forever home. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 9 years
Weight: 18 pounds
Gender: Male
