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:

Mr. Max
Looks like: Terrier Pug Mix
Male, 4 years old, 8 pounds
The first thing you notice about Max is his serious underbite! It's very cute. He is excited to see people and desperately wants to interact with someone. When we let Max out of the kennel at the shelter, I was crouched down to greet him and he shamelessly lept into my arms. Such a love bug but also has lots of energy still. Apparently he belonged to a couple and they are getting a divorce, so no one wanted to come get Max from the shelter. Max is a little nervous but will be fine once properly introduced.

Max is currently at our vet clinic awaiting a foster home. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Dot
Looks like: Terrier Mix
Female, 2 years old, 13 pounds
Dot was very ready to get out of the shelter! She was a bit shell shocked by the all the loud noises while she was there and is very timid. We think she will open up more when she feels safe in a loving home. We promised her she would never have to return the shelter ever again.

Dot is safe and sound at our vet clinic patiently awaiting her foster family. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Petal
Looks like: Poodle Mix
Female, 4 years old, 12 pounds
Petal is totally loving. When we met her at the shelter, she was quiet at her kennel door but she had very soft eyes and you could tell she really wanted you to pay attention to her. She seems to say "please" with her expression. When we opened the door she climbed into the nearest lap, gave kisses and said "PLEASE get me out of here." She has serious skin issues, possible mange. She is going to be a beautiful, super sweet dog for someone!

Petal is currently safe and sound at our vet clinic awaiting her foster family. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Queso
Looks like: Chihuahua
Male, 7 years old, 8 pounds
Queso is the kind of dog who is eagerly waiting at the kennel door asking for attention. Queso point (case in point), he will jump up to let you know he really wants to interact. He cheeses it up for your attention. Someone is going to fall in love with his peppy personality. He is talkative if he thinks you're ignoring him!

He joins us from Monterey County Animal Services.

Queso is currently at our vet clinic patiently awaiting a foster. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Marble
Looks like: Chihuahua
Female, 11 years old, 9 pounds
Marble is a sweet little thing that was very sad at the shelter. She much prefers being loved on by a person to the loud environment of the shelter. She was shivering and petrified at the shelter so were more than happy to rescue her.

Marble is our biggest priority to find a foster for right now since she is so timid and scared when boarded. We need to find her a soft place to land ASAP. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Oreo Cookie
Looks like: Medium Mixed Breed
Male, 8 years old, 15 pounds
Oreo has been at the shelter for such a long time. It has definitely stressed him out and he is eager to get out of there. He is cautious of people at first, likely because he has lived in a kennel since August. Despite his long stint there, he does like to be pet and picked up. He, like everyone, just wants to be loved.

Oreo Cookie is currently at our new vet clinic awaiting a foster home. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Coop
Looks like: Cairn Terrier-Westie Mix
Male, 9 years old, 31 pounds
Cooper was found by a good Samaritan, along with his brother Oliver, and brought to Monterey County Animal Services, and subsequently to POMDR. His guardian was located, but has decided to surrender them both because of overwhelming family circumstances.

Cooper is a mellow fellow who loves to cuddle, snuggle, and follow his person around the house. His quirky personality has endeared him to his foster mom! Cooper is friendly to adults (not known how he responds to children) and greets other dogs politely. His energy level is medium to low, and is happy with short walks and low couches.

Cooper behaves well on leash. His ideal home would be a quiet loving place with someone home most of the time. Cooper has had some skin issues that we are treating, but his hair is growing back nicely. He also needs a daily eye lubricant. If you are looking for a darling boy who will not require much exercise but will give lots of love, Cooper is your guy!

Albus
Looks like: Pomeranian/Papillon mix
Male, 9 years old, 9 pounds
Albus enjoys giving kisses and loves attention from people. This guy would love a quiet home where he can spend ample time with his people, joining them on outings and walks. He was once in pain and became afraid that being picked up would hurt him, however, now he is comfortable and social again. It is truly wonderful to see! Reminders that people love him will keep this cutie happy. He is amazing with other dogs; big or small, he assimilates quickly into the pack. He is excited to receive treats and responds well to human voices. He even walks well on leash and is good in the car.

Albus came to us from Monterey County Animal Shelter.

Albus is looking for a new foster as his current foster has to move. If you'd like to help this little guy, let us know! Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Captain
Looks like: Chihuahua mix
Male, 12 years old, 8 pounds
Ahoy there! Captain is on the lookout for his forever home. A mellow guy, Captain enjoys being around his person, but is not clingy. While he is polite with other dogs, he doesn't have much interest in playing with them. Captain loves to explore the world around him, walking well on a leash and sniffing everything he can. Captain does have a vision impairment, but doesn't let them stop him, which means he will need a few extra precautions taken around the house, such as a baby gate or a pen, so he can wander with some level of freedom. He is a small, polite little gentleman who would be perfect for someone interested in having a dog they can take with them everywhere.

Captain came to POMDR from Salinas Animal Services where he won the hearts of the shelter staff and spent his time keeping them company in the front office. Are you ready to become Captain's first mate?

Captain is currently with a relief foster that offered to help him get out of the shelter as soon as possible. She would love for him to go to a longer term foster. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Mr. Dusty
Looks like: Australian Shepherd mix
Male, 11 years old, 39 pounds
Dusty is a calm, sweet dog with a constant wagging tail. He will give you a gentle nudge with his muzzle for more attention. He is affectionate and friendly. He will bond quickly to his future person.. Dusty has some age related hip and leg issues, so he needs to live in a single story home. He LOVES to go for walks, and is excellent on leash. He will be a great companion for some lucky person.

He recently went to lunch at a restaurant patio with other dogs, diners, and the usual activity, and he was perfectly well behaved. He is very treat motivated for training, but ignored the diners and their food.

Dusty was picked up as a stray and went unclaimed at Salinas Animal Services. His exceptional personality drove POMDR to help him find a new home. Dusty has chased a cat in his yard so will need a careful introduction to any cats in his new home. He prefers not to be left alone for too long and a home with a nice calm dog would be helpful.

Mr. Dusty is currently with a foster but he isn't getting along with their personal dogs. We are looking for a quiet foster home that doesn't have any other dogs that would be open to fostering him. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
