Hospice Care

Sometimes when we bring a senior dog into our care, we find out they have a life threatening medical condition. For some of our dogs who are expected to live only a few months, we provide Hospice Care.

Providing Hospice Care for a dog is a big commitment and a rewarding experience. If you are interested in providing foster care for a dog for the last several months or more of their life, contact us. As with all foster assignments, POMDR will cover all medical expenses for dogs in hospice care.

Please consider becoming a sponsor for one of these sweeties.

Honey T has a gentle soul and is so loving. She came to POMDR with an unsightly ruptured mammary mass, and even though she was undoubtedly in pain, she was friendly with everyone she met - dogs and people alike.

Unfortunately, Honey T's cancer is an aggressive carcinoma. She is happy and comfortable in her foster home and she is undergoing treatment so we can give her the longest life possible. As long as she is comfortable and pain free, she will stay in hospice care with her foster family.

Please consider sponsoring Honey T's forever care.

Freckles is a 15 year old small mixed breed. She originally came to POMDR in 2014 when her guardian could not care for her. She was adopted by a senior citizen who adored her. Sadly, he passed away in August 2018.

Shortly after bringing Freckles back into our program, we discovered that she has a large, inoperable tumor under her front leg. Freckles is in a foster home where she will be cared for until it is time to let her go so she doesn't suffer.

Jenny came to us as a stray from Monterey County Animal Services. After five months in foster care, she was diagnosed with a life-threatening inoperable cancer. Jenny will spend the rest of her time in the loving care of her foster dad.

Jenny is absolutely sweet, gentle and an affectionate companion. She is house trained, quiet, and wants nothing more than a comfy place to be and a person's presence. Jenny is a gem.

Bella came to POMDR in 2016. She has been in a couple of foster homes and a couple of adoptive homes, but for reasons that where not her fault, she came back under the POMDR umbrella. She has been in a loving foster home for several years and has been dealing with some chronic health problems.

Unfortunately, in February 2019, we found out Bella has an aggressive Lymphoma. She will spend the remainder of her time with her foster family. We will make sure she is loved and comfortable until it is time for her to make her transition.

This calm little lady is a gentle nestler. She isn't vocal and doesn't run around in excitement, mostly taking in everything with her tender brown eyes. She responds happily to treats and to affection. Tink came to us from the Salinas Animal Shelter after being picked up as a stray.

Tink has been struggling with Cushings over the past year, and sadly it is now apparent that the disease has taken it's toll on her. She is in a loving foster home with an incredible foster that is keeping her comfortable, but the vet and foster agreed it'd be better for Tink to not move again in her life.

Sampson and Goliath

Sampson and Goliath are brothers and are very bonded to each other. They're precious, sweet and keep their foster family laughing.

Sampson and Goliath came from a very loving home. Their family fell on hard times and could no longer keep them.

Goliath has degenerative disease in his back and it is touch and go some days. He may eventually be completely paralyzed. We have been managing his condition with medication and mobility restriction and that helps. He is very attached to his brother, Sampson, who is being treated for very serious heart disease.

They are being fostered by a veterinary ICU nurse and her retired uncle, so are in very good hands and will stay in their care for the rest of their lives.
