The Tiny Dog with the Huge Heart

The Tiny Dog with the Huge Heart by Stephanie Turcotte Edenholm is intended to inspire compassion and empathy in readers of all ages through the story of the life of a real dog named Bernie, who was adopted from POMDR by our co-founder Monica Rua.

The book is available on or at the POMDR Bauer Center in Pacific Grove, CA. Proceeds benefit POMDR.

Wooftrax "Walk for a Dog"

You can now support POMDR and help us save more senior dogs by using the Wooftrax app and selecting POMDR as your animal charity of choice. The app is free and it's easy to log your walk.

The more people actively walking with Wooftrax, the greater the donation to Peace of Mind Dog Rescue! Every walk counts, whether it's around the block or a long hike.

No dog in your life right now? No problem. You can still record your walk with the app's "virtual dog," Cassie!
