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:

Buddy Boy

Breed: Medium Mixed Breed
Age: 8 years
Weight: 30 pounds
Gender: Male

Buddy Boy comes to us because his guardian can no longer afford to care for him as she recently got divorced and has 2 kiddos to focus on. Buddy Boy is one of those happy-go-lucky dogs. He finds a spot in the sun and is perfectly content soaking up some rays. He is happiest outside and since he is a chunkier guy he would benefit being in a home that will take him on regular walks.

Buddy Boy is currently with his guardian. We are searching for a foster for him because the guardian can no longer afford to keep him. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Ollie Ollie

Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 13 years
Weight: 9 pounds
Gender: Male

Ollie Ollie is such a cute little guy and just needs you to give him a chance. He's on the shy side but will warm up to you if you take the time to get to know him. He relaxes when picked up and gives endless kisses to those who want them. He is ready to bond to a person and thank them every day for giving him a home.

Ollie came to us from Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter after being surrendered by a family that had him his entire life. The guardian became ill and they could no longer care for Ollie.

Ollie Ollie came to us from the shelter. He is currently awaiting his medical workup at the vet and needs a foster home once he is medically cleared to leave. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 14 years
Weight: 12 pounds
Gender: Female

Remy will be an easy fit in a relaxed home where people are home more often than not. She loves to greet everyone, and she has a special fondness for children. She is playful and loves snooping around new places. She enjoys her walks as much as her snuggle time and loves to ride in the car. Remy is oh so sweet and is very easy to have around. She really looks forward to meal time. She loves to hang out in the kitchen, especially if you're in there fixing food. She gets along fine with cats.

Remy needs a new home because her person entered assisted living and could no longer keep a dog.

Remy is currently in a loving foster home but work has picked up and suggested to us that Remy be in a home that can dedicate more time to her. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Mr. Dusty

Breed: Medium Mixed Breed
Age: 12 years
Weight: 37 pounds
Gender: Male

Dusty is a 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. He does get a anxious with new visitors once established in a home, but socializing could help him understand. Dusty needs to live in a single story home without cats. He LOVES to go for walks, and is excellent gentleman on leash. He will be a great companion for some lucky person.

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 was adopted and did well until recently with new visitors entering the home. He has become protective of the house and a change of environment could really help his insecurity and break him of this behavior.

Dusty is currently living with his guardians who love him! They worked hard on his training and are looking to find him a new home with someone who can spend as much time as possible with him. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Ebonee and Wilma

Breed: Large Mixed Breed, Basset Hound
Age: 11 years, 11 years
Weight: 75 pounds, 55 pounds
Gender: Female, Female

Ebonee, the large mixed breed, and Wilma, the Basset Hound, are two lovely ladies who are most comfortable having each other near. Ebonee is the more outgoing of the two, but once acquainted, Wilma loves receiving attention and affection. They are a little pack, exploring areas and sleeping together. Both are good in the home and enjoy walks. They are good at taking direction and aim to please people. These ladies do chase cats and need a home without them. They have played with many children, but overly hyper kids can intimidate them.

Wilma and Ebonee may get a little protective of their toys, but that has never escalated. They are calm, relaxed ladies as long as they have each other. They like to sleep on dog beds and are comfortable being left alone while their person runs errands. They should be fed separately.

Wilma and Ebonee came to POMDR because their previous person is ill and no longer able to care for them. They were adopted but Wilma is insecure and protecting her area when the resident dog comes near. It is best if Ebonee and Wilma go to a home without other dogs.

Wilma and Ebonee may be nervous in transition but will settle in and be ever so grateful to the people that give them a chance. They are currently living with another dog that they must be kept separate from, so hopefully we can get them into a home without restrictions and where Wilma and Ebonee can be a happy pair.

Snoopy Beagle

Breed: Beagle
Age: 10 years
Weight: 30 pounds
Gender: Male

Snoopy can travel through time right in front of you. One moment, he's a calm senior of 10 years old. But pull out a treat, and in the very next moment he's a much younger, much more enthusiastic dog. What we're saying is, Snoopy loves food. He'll even sing you a little song of thanks when you give him a nibble of something delicious.

This happy beagle boy loves everyone and everything. Walks? Let's go! Kids? So much fun. Going for a ride? Can't wait. Kitties? Well, maybe he's a little too excited about them. Snoopy has lived with and without dogs, so he can fit into any situation. He's fine being left alone all day - as long as you give him a treat and maybe a belly rub when you get home. He's potty trained with doggy door access and responds well to verbal direction. Strangers often comment on just how bright he is.

Snoopy is taking several medications and an anti-inflammatory to shrink a tumor and will require some follow-up visits to the vet. He is looking for a new loving home because his previous guardian was no longer able to care for him.

Snoopy is currently with a foster who loves him however, at this time she needs to focus on her family. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound
Age: 15 years
Weight: 92 pounds
Gender: Female

Cinnamon, or Sage, is about as easy as a dog gets. She is friendly, loves contact, loves dogs, loves to sniff, and loves to play. She acts much younger than her age. Cinnamon is the poster girl for graceful aging. If you adopt her, you are bringing home a winner.

Cinnamon is needing a home without cats.

Cinnamon came to POMDR from the SPCA for Monterey County.

Cinnamon is currently with her loving foster parents. They are expecting their first baby in May and want to find a new home for Cinnamon. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Cockapoo
Age: 9 years
Estimated weight: 18 pounds
Gender: Male

Poe's social exuberance is wonderful. He is ready to meet new people and receive all the attention they are willing to give. Poe will look forward to walks in his future home and is surprisingly spry. On walks, he will pull with excitement and needs to be in his harness while on a leash. He is used to backyard access, and will do better in a home with a doggie door but can learn your routine. His curiosity is strong and he often wants to leave to explore, but thankfully you can draw him back with treats. He also loves soft, fabric chew toys, which will entertain him for a good while.

Poe should go to a home without children since is desire for food is so high he eagerly takes it. Poe does not have many teeth after an extensive dental but understanding his behavior is important.

Poe was born with an eye socket that didn't grow properly. This does impair his vision, especially at night.

Poe adores people and is a really good boy. His whole personality is endearing. He has been in a loving home, but the guardian is ill and is no longer able to care for him.

Poe is currently with his loving guardian who is having some health issues and is no longer able to care for Poe. We would love to provide his guardian some relief so she can focus on her own personal health. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Reno Raines

Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 9 years
Weight: 12 pounds
Gender: Male

We don't know much about Reno's history, but we're pretty sure he was suffering from a love deficit before he came to us. This striking fellow with the quirky smile is happily soaking up every drop of affection from his foster family. He follows them around with adoring eyes and loves to snuggle close by. As his sense of security increases, his personality is really shining through.

Since he's used to being on his own, he's fine being left home alone. But, fair warning, when you add Reno to your family you should expect an excited greeting when you get home. He loves having people company once he gets to know someone, and he even gets along with other dogs and cats.

Reno is good on a leash, loves riding in the car and only barks when someone's at the door. With trips outside in the morning, midday and before bed, he's great with housetraining. If that middle of the day walk is difficult, he knows how to use a doggy door or potty pad. At night, he sleeps in a crate without a peep.

He loves to chase stuffed animals and balls, and will play fetch.

Reno Raines came to us from Salinas Animal Shelter. He was picked up as a stray.

Reno Raines is currently living in a loving foster home but they are only available short term so we are looking for a new foster for him. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
