Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Huckleberry! This darling dog would love sponsors in his honor. Huckleberry is a 12-year-old, 8 pound small mixed breed.

Huckleberry came to us from Salinas Animal Services. His medical expenses include an exam, blood work, mass removal, and x-rays. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Huckleberry.

Help POMDR Build an Intake and Care Center

Goal: $2,000,000
We are currently raising funds for our very own Intake and Care Center. We will hire our own veterinary staff to provide medical care for the dogs we bring into our program.

With the support of several generous donors, we were able to purchase the property next door to our headquarters in Pacific Grove. The next step is to raise the funds needed to build and staff the clinic
