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:

Zoey
Looks like: Shih Tzu mix
Female, 10 years old, 10 pounds
Zoey is a fun loving little gal who excited to meet new friends! She loves saying hello to people on walks and getting affection. She lives with another dog and is a sweet little gal, but sometimes tries to act tough and barks when meeting new dogs. She has been known to chase cats. Zoey likes to play with kids and get snuggles from them too!

Zoey is coming to us because her senior guardians can no longer care for her.

Zoey is coming for evaluation on Monday January 30th. We would love to have a foster home lined up for her to land in that same day!

Cupcake
Looks like: Shih Tzu Chihuahua mix
Female, 8 years old, 5 pounds
Cupcake is a petite little lady who loves to be carried, even in a pocket is a cozy way for this tiny princess to catch a ride! She has lived with other dogs and is afraid of cats because they are bigger than she is! Cupcake is pretty shy when meeting new people, but when she gets to know you she will ask to be picked up. She likes playing with children after warming up.

Cupcake is coming into the program because her guardians can no longer care for her due to an illness in the family.

Cupcake is coming for evaluation on Monday January 30th and would love a foster home that can bring her home that afternoon and help her feel safe during this big change.

Coral
Looks like: Black Labrador Retriever
Female, 9 years old, 74 pounds
Lovely Coral is just what you would expect in a curvaceous senior lab- happy, outgoing, and LOVES food! She has tail wags for canine friends of all sizes and sure loves people too. She does not get along with cats so would do best in a home without small animals, including cats, rabbits, pet rodents or chickens. We don't know how she is with kids, but would expect her to be as exuberant meeting smaller humans as she is meeting adults! As long as they don't mind kisses, we think she would be fine in a home with children.

Coral is at Hitchcock Road Animal Services after her senior guardian could no longer care for her.

We would love to find a foster so Coral can come into the program and work on weight loss while she looks for her forever home! She cannot live in a home with cats or other small animals including chickens.

Mona
Looks like: Chihuahua
Female, 14 years old, 10 pounds
With her soulful eyes and silly tongue, Mona is sure to bring a smile to your face! This very sweet lady loves to stick close to her human and is a great companion. She loves meeting new people in and outside of the house. Mona has a mellow energy level, content with a cozy lap to crawl into. Mona would be happiest in a home where her people are around for much of the day. She gets quite sad when left at home, even if she has a furry sibling with her.

Mona adores a nice walk around the neighborhood, but she is working on learning manners when greeting other dogs while out and about. She may be small, but she is mighty when she feels the need to tell another dog of her displeasure in seeing them enjoying a walk as well. Mona is what we refer to as a 'door dasher'. She is just so excited to go for outings that she forgets she needs to wait for her humans. She is searching for an adoptive home that is able to keep Mona safely in the home and can watch out for these moments. She has experience living with both cats and dogs and has done well living with both.

Mona came to us from the SPCA of Monterey County after she was surrendered when her guardian passed away.

This little girl is looking for a loving foster home who can continue working on training with her!

Hank
Looks like: Black Mouth Cur
Male, 8 years old, 60 pounds
Hank is a sweet guy that loves his people! He is fine with other pups and is a very polite boy. This guy has successfully lived with cats in the past but should be with a dog-savvy cat because he enjoys chasing them if they give him the opportunity. This energetic boy LOVES going for long walks and hikes but should have an able bodied handler who can handle his strength. Hank does not have experience with children.

Hank is coming to us as a guardian surrender because his guardian is no longer able to care for him.

We are looking for an active foster for Hank who will shower him with love.

Dahlia
Looks like: Papillon Terrier Mix
Female, 9 years old, 19 pounds
Sweet Dahlia is a cheerful girl who loves meeting new friends and is happiest in your arms. She will shower you with kisses! This adorable pup gets along great with other dogs. She does not have known experience with cats or children.

Daliah came to us from Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter after her guardian surrendered her due to an unsafe living environment.

We are looking for a loving foster home for Dahlia! She is a sweet pup that might need some diapers due to minor leaking.If you are interested in fostering and you are already a POMDR volunteer, email us. If you are interested in fostering and are not a volunteer yet, please fill out a volunteer application. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Biscotti
Looks like: Corgi Mix
Female, 12 years old, 26 pounds
Biscotti is a happy little girl that is very people-oriented! In true corgi fashion, Biscotti meets dogs with a wagging tail and a grumble so we aren't quite sure how she feels about them! She seems excited to meet other pups but would probably do really great as a solo pup. She finds a cozy bed to lay on and seems just fine when people come and go.

This girl has been through a lot and our vet staff is going to get her feeling much better! She does not have known experience with cats or kiddos.

Biscotti comes to us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services after she was picked up as a stray.

We are looking for a loving foster for Biscotti that can get her back to feeling her best.

Walter
Looks like: Chihuahua Mix
Male, 12 years old, 8 pounds
Walter is the cutest little Chi in town. He loves to be around his people and soaks up all the love! He gets along well with other dogs but seems to be more interested in the people around him. Sweet Walter walks well on leash and rides well in the car. He would love nothing more than a human companion for going on adventures.

Walter came to Peace of Mind Dog Rescue from Stanislaus Animal Services after he was found as a stray.

Adorable Walter is looking for a loving foster! He would prefer a foster that is home most of the time so he can get lots of snuggles in.

Myra
Looks like: Dachshund Mix
Female, 12 years old, 15 pounds
Myra is as sweet as pie! She is very polite when meeting new doggy friends and loves to play. She has puppy energy when interacting with other dogs and will romp and chase like a dog half her age! Myra loves to go for long walks. This sweet girl might be a little shy at first when you want to pet her, but after just a few seconds, she will be asking for more! Her foster describes her as "a sweet, adoring and devoted companion. She's affectionate and very loyal to her person."

This sweet gal should not be in a home with cats, as she has found it is much more fun to chase than live with them. She does not have very much experience with children.

Miss Myra came to us from the SPCA of Monterey County. She was brought there after her guardian passed away.

Myra is looking for a cat-free, mellow foster home to snuggle up in. She needs weekly trips to the clinic for her sub-q fluids. Her current foster loves her but a family emergency came up so she needs to move fosters.

Micah
Looks like: Schnauzer
Female, 13 years old, 16 pounds
Micah is a sweet and loving little girl that is a little shy to start but warms up once you get to know her. This girl loves walks and will ask to jump up on the couch to snuggle up, once she is comfortable, usually about 10 mutes. Micah is not a fan of being picked up at this time and is looking for a patient, gentle approach to working on this with her. She is nippy when picked up but when worked with at her speed, but luckily has no teeth left so it's really more of a gumming! She has so many kisses to share and loves to greet her foster mom and friends with full body wags and a happy dance when they arrive home! She gets especially excited to meet male friends and jumps up to greet them!

Micah is great with dogs, dog savvy cats, bunnies and chickens. She does not have any known experience with children.

Micah comes to us as a rescue transfer from CA Miniature Schnauzer Rescue.

We are looking for a loving and mellow foster home for Micah.

Lili and Suzie
Looks like: Pekingese Mix
Female, 7 years old, 13 pounds
Looks like:
Female, 7 years old, 13 pounds
Lili and Suzie are two peas in a pod! They are a little shy when you first meet them but once they warms up to you they are all love and cuddles. These girls are fine with other pups and can be found sharing a bed with another furry friend. They do not have known experience with cats but are fine with older children.

Lili and Suzie are coming to us as a guardian surrender because her senior guardian passed away.

We are looking for a mellow foster home for these two to blossom in. She is coming to POMDR for an evaluation on February 8th.

Ellie Mae - 3/17-3/29 only
Looks like: Terrier Mix
Female, 12 years old, 12 pounds
A warm comfy lap and lots of snuggles are at the top of Ellie Mae's holiday wishlist! This little lady with her tousled fur-do and skinny legs is a lovebug whose perfect day is snuggling with her person, sunning outside, going on a short sniffing walk, eating scheduled meals and sleeping in a warm bed. Despite being hearing and vision impaired, Ellie Mae gets around just fine. In fact, she loves to follow her person around the house! She also likes to play with crinkle toys by throwing them up in the air or chasing them.

Ellie Mae does not have known experience with cats or children, but would likely do better in a home without small children who may startle her.

This loving gal came to us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services after she was picked up as a stray.

We are looking for a loving and mellow foster home for Ellie Mae while her foster is away.

Cruz - 3/5-3/21 only
Looks like: Chiweenie
Male, 5 years old, 13 pounds
Watching a dog come out of their shell is always gratifying, which is why it has been rewarding to see some progress with this shy pup. Cruz is ready for a forever home filled with love and treats. Although it can take time for him to get comfortable, he'll want nothing more than to spend his days by your side once he's ready. With a little patience and a lot of love, Cruz will be a wonderful companion.

Because of his shyness, Cruz would do best in a quiet home with experience caring for shy dogs. He'd also be happy in a place with a brother or sister dog or cat. Although Cruz does well with all the adults he's met, he has not yet been introduced to kids.

Cruz came to us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services. He arrived with injuries consistent with an animal attack and was very shut down at the shelter. He is now in a safe space where he can begin to blossom.

Little Cruz is looking for a special foster who has experience with confidence building in shy dogs. His current foster is going on vacation and needs a savvy foster to continue his daily training on confidence building and leash walking.
