Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
Lady Boxer
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Lady Boxer! This darling dog would love sponsors in her honor. Lady is a 7-year-old, 44 pound Boxer.

Lady came to us from Salinas Animal Shelter. Her medical expenses include an exam, blood work, dental, thoracic radiographs, an ultrasound, cardiac evaluation and biopsy. She is also having surgery on April 4th to remove an orbital tumor. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Lady Boxer.

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
