Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
Ruby Rose
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Ruby Rose! This darling dog would love sponsors in her honor. Ruby is an 11-year-old, 12 pound, small mixed breed.

Ruby was surrendered to POMDR when her person could no longer care for her. Her medical expenses include an exam, blood work, dental, allergy test, and mass removal. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Ruby Rose.
