Spotlight on an Oldie but Goodie
Prince Ventura
The Oldie but Goodie Spotlight shines on Prince Ventura! This darling dog would love sponsors in his honor. Prince is an 4-year-old, 13 pound small mixed breed.

Prince came to us when his guardian became ill and could no longer care for him. His medical expenses include an exam, blood work, extensive dental, mass removal and biopsy. Consider making a donation today so together we can help more senior dogs like Prince.

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
