Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Corky! This darling dog would love sponsors in his honor. Corky is an 18-year-old, 16 pound, medium mixed breed.

Corky came to us after his guardian went into assisted living. His medical expenses include an exam, blood work, urinalysis, dental, consult with ophthalmologist, and keratectomy. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Corky.

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!
