Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
Sadie Bull Dog
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Sadie! This darling dog would love sponsors in her honor. Sadie is an 11-year-old, 107 pound American Bull Dog.

Sadie was surrendered to San Jose Animal Care Center. Sadie's medical expenses include an exam, blood work, dental, and treatment for her allergies and chronic ear infections. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Sadie.

Help POMDR Build Our Veterinary Clinic

Goal: $2,000,000
We are currently raising funds to build our very own veterinary clinic. 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 a commercial building in Monterey. The build-out has begun, and we still have a little ways to go to meet our goal. Help us raise the thermometer!
