Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Klondike! This darling dog would love sponsors in his honor. Klondike is an 8-year-old, 17 pound small mixed breed.

Klondike came to us when his guardian passed and the other had a stroke. His medical expenses include an exam, blood work, and consult with an internal medicine specialist. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Klondike.

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
