We Need Foster Homes!

We typically have about 80 dogs in our care at any given time. We also typically have up to 15 dogs waiting to get into foster homes.

POMDR provides supplies such as crate, bed, collar, harness, leash, id tag, bowls, toys, flea prevention. We also cover all medical expenses. We ask that our foster homes provide the food and a loving, safe home until your foster dog is adopted.

Fostering is a wonderful way to help dogs left behind find their forever homes. You may also want to foster as a way of finding the perfect match for your home if you are looking to add a dog to your family.

The following dogs need foster homes:

Barney
Looks like: Boston Terrier
Male, 6 years old (estimated), 18 pounds
Bouncy and bubbly Barney is just such a joy to add to any home! Don't let this boy's senior status fool you, he's an active Boston, ready to keep up with the pack! Barney would do best in an active home that can keep up with his high energy. He'd love to go for some long walks or even runs in his next home. Barney does great around other dogs, but some dogs don't appreciate all his energy, so a patient doggie sibling in his next home is a must.

Barney does have some immature cataracts. While he still has some decent sight, he is losing a bit of vision and can be a bit clumsy. He does not let this loss of some vision slow him down one bit though! He's ready to explore every inch of the world with you!

Sweet Barney was found as a stray and brought in to Hitchcock Road Animal Services. We'd love to see him land in the loving home he deserves!

Barney is currently at Hitchcock Road Animal Services awaiting rescue commitment. We need a committed foster in order to bring this sweet guy into our program. Does he sound like the right fit for your home?

Stella
Looks like: Chow Chow, Australian Cattle Dog
Female, 9 years old (estimated), 33 pounds
Stella is definitely a star! This sweet girl has been through a difficult chapter, and can be a bit cautious when she meets new people. But earning her trust reaps major rewards. This unique lady will closely bond with you, and will keep you entertained. She'd love to lounge with you while you're working at your desk or in the yard, or hop in the car to run errands with you- she LOVES car rides!

Stella is polite and gentle when walking on leash, she loves a leisurely stroll and may even get trotting when there are interesting smells ahead. She is a master sunbather and a tug-of-war champ. When Stella's ready to play, she will find a toy and invite you to play with her by bowing! She might even trick you into thinking she's a cat--she's been known to rub up against her human's legs and let out something that sounds a lot like a meow!

Stella finds herself searching for a home with other dogs that can respect her space and a spot with people who have herding dog experience and are knowledgeable about training. She would also be happy to be the apple of her adopter's eye as a solo dog.

After being found as a stray, Stella was taken to Hitchcock Road Animal Services before arriving at POMDR.

Stella is hoping to move into a new foster home soon who can continue working with her on socialization with people!

Dingo
Looks like: Chihuahua mix
Male, 7 years old (estimated), 12 pounds
Dingo, named for his striking looks, shares no behavior qualities with his distant cousin he shares his name with. He does have a unique look to him that adds to his charm and that smile of his lights up any room! You can't help but smile when meeting this sweet little guy! A staff favorite at the shelter he came from, he gets along great with other dogs both big and small and of course loves his people friends! He'd love to join you on a nice walk around the block or even a hike to get out and see more of the world. Dingo was found as a stray and brought into Hitchcock Road Animal Services. He joins Peace of Mind to find his more senior savvy forever home.

Sweet little Dingo is currently at Hitchcock Road Animal Services. We are looking to secure a foster for Dingo in order for him to join our program. Ready for this happy boy to join your pack?

Beau
Looks like: Border Collie mix
Male, 10 years old (estimated), 90 pounds
Beau is a mellow guy who is looking for a forever home. He gets along well with other dogs and enjoys a short stroll around the neighborhood. He is a low-energy guy but is a little overweight so is looking for a home where he can work on a plan to shed a few pounds.

Beau's guardian has to move into a facility and is devastated that he cannot take him with him.

Beau is looking for a foster who can commit to fostering through adoption before we can bring him into our program.

Ozzy
Looks like: Doberman Pinscher mix
Male, 6 years old (estimated), 70 pounds
Ozzy is a high-energy boy who is looking for a foster that can help him burn some of it off! He gets along well with other dogs and enjoys meeting new doggy friends while out and about. He loves people including children and knows basic commands. He would fit well into an active family that can get him the activity he needs.

Ozzy's guardian is moving into a facility that doesn't allow dogs and is heartbroken that she can't take him with her.

Samee
Looks like: Shih Tzu mix
Male, 14 years old (estimated), 15 pounds
This sweet guy bonds deeply with his human companions and enjoys spending time around people. He gets along great with other dogs and has been sharing his home with another pup for much of his life. This sweet guy would love nothing more than to cozy up with you while you enjoy a movie together or take a nice walk around the block.

Sadly, Samee joined us after his guardian passed away. We're heartbroken that Samee has to experience this change, and for such a sad reason, but we are excited to see him bring joy to his next family.

Samee is joining Peace of Mind on Saturday, June 8th. We'd love for him to have a home to land in that same day!

Hazel
Looks like: Terrier mix
Female, 6 years old (estimated), 26 pounds
Spunky and sweet, Hazel is as happy-go-lucky as they come! This resilient gal landed at the shelter in 'ruff' shape. She had some considerably-sized mammary masses and needed a lot of TLC. We can't wait to see what a beautiful flower she blossoms into in our care.

Hazel joined POMDR from Ventura County Animal Services along with a few other senior pups who hitched a flight up to us when the shelter there was over capacity.

Hazel is currently at Ventura County Animal Services. She is set to arrive on Saturday, June 8th. We'd love a foster home for her to head straight into.

Pearl
Looks like: Poodle mix
Female, 10 years old (estimated), 10 pounds
Pretty little Pearl is a darling senior lady who is ready to find her forever home! She's always on the lookout for a comfy snuggle spot. Pearl does well socializing with other small dogs exchanging sniffs and tail wags. Sometimes she can be protective towards other dogs of her bed if she's snuggled up, or treat toys, so she would prefer to eat separately and live with other dogs who are respectful of her space. She would also be happy to be the apple of your eye as an only pet!

Pearl does best riding in the car in a crate, otherwise she can be a little too active and might try to climb into your lap to drive! We don't know at this time how Pearl does around kitties or children, but with her protectiveness around food, we think she might be best in a home without kitties or kids.

This curly girl joined us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services after she was picked up as a stray with a severely injured eye. We removed her painful, non functional eye and she is healed up and feeling much better!

Pearl is currently cozied up in a boarding suite at our Monterey vet clinic. She is looking for a foster who is willing to work with her to help her feel comfortable with all the change she has been through lately and where she can be the only dog in the home or with respectful other dogs who won't be offended if she gets protective of her bed or food.

Mando
Looks like: Maltese mix
Male, 10 years old (estimated), 13 pounds
Mando has had a rough time lately, but his luck is about to change! Mando is a happy guy who hasn't let adversity get him down. He has a tail wag for everyone he meets and gets along well with other dogs. He enjoys playing so much that you wouldn't think he is 12 years old!

Mando was surrendered to Hitchcock Road Animal Services after his guardians could no longer afford to care for him. The shelter reached out to see if we could help.

Mando is currently in a suite at our clinic in Monterey and would love to go home with a foster right away!

Woofy Biscuit
Looks like: Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshund
Male, 6 years old (estimated), 9 pounds
Woofy Biscuit is a darling boy eager to waddle his way into the good life. This sweet soul joined us from a shelter where he was found to have a slipped disk which, if left untreated, could leave him paralyzed. Luckily our wonderful medical team has been working closely with him and he's on his way to recovery. Now that he's starting to feel better, he is a happy go lucky little guy with a wagging tail for everyone he meets!

Due to his medical state, we do not recommend a home with young children, though if the right home were to come along with pet parents willing to ensure his safety, we would be willing to make an exception.

Sweet Woofy joined us after the amazing team at Hitchcock Road Animal Services reached out for help with his medical care.

Woofy is currently in a suite at our vet clinic but would love to go to a foster home that can help him with daily physical therapy exercises and eventually short leashed walks when he can do that safely.

Chloey
Looks like: Long-haired Dachshund/Chihuahua mix
Female, 4 years old (estimated), 12 pounds
Chloey is a sweet girl who has been through a lot lately and is looking for her luck to change! She is a sweet girl who would like to go for a stroll around the neighborhood and then curl up in a nice cozy bed. She gets along well with other calm dogs but we aren't sure how she interacts with cats or children. Chloey can be shy at first so a slow introduction is best.

This sweet girl would be ideal for a single homebody.

Chloey's guardian passed away suddenly so she is coming to us to find a new forever home!

Chloey is looking for a foster home who is willing to work on some training with her.

Mini
Looks like: Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix
Female, 6 years old (estimated), 10 pounds
She may be Mini, but Mini has a mighty big heart. This sweet little girl is just looking for her forever family, where she can spend her days getting all the cuddles she could ever want. Mini shows her love with full-body wiggles, which she gets overcome by whenever she can spend time snuggling and chomping on her favorite treats.

Mini is great with dogs of her size or smaller, but she may be happiest as the apple of her next family's eye, allowing them more time to give her all the cuddles she could possibly want without having to share. We have not seen Mini interact with kitties, but she's great with kiddos, especially if they like to cuddle! This little lady is vision-impaired, so she needs eye drops and requires patience and redirection, especially when on walks. She is also looking for a home without stairs to keep her safe.

Little Mini came to us from San Jose Animal Care Center so we could provide her with the medical help she needed.

Mini is looking for a new foster as her foster will be traveling extensively starting about June 12th.

Copper
Looks like: Shih Tzu, Terrier mix
Male, 13 years old (estimated), 12 pounds
Copper is another sweet pup you really can't help but fall in love with! Copper is a bit more independent, but also enjoys time with his people and other pups. He'd love an active home that can take him out for nice walks or even some beach time. Ready to add a pup to your home? Copper would love to be that lucky dog!

Sadly, Copper joined us after his guardian passed away. We're heartbroken that Copper had to experience this loss, but we are excited to see him bring joy to his next family.

Copper is currently at our clinic in Monterey and we would love for him to go to a foster home right away!

Pinky
Looks like: Rat Terrier mix
Male, 12 years old (estimated), 17 pounds
Little Pinky is a dog of few words but has a way of expressing his personality in a big way! This goofy character is ready for any adventure you have in mind for him. Going for a walk? He'd love to join! Need company at dinner? Of course Pinky would love to be there!

Somehow this sweet guy landed at the scary shelter. Despite the overwhelming sights, sounds, and smells of the shelter, Pinky showed himself to be a friend to all dogs, both big and small, and loved seeking comfort from humans.

Pinky joined POMDR from Ventura County Animal Services.

This adorable little guy is currently at Ventura County Animal Services. He is set to arrive on Saturday, June 8th. We'd love a foster home for him to head straight into.

Tikal
Looks like: Chihuahua mix
Male, 12 years old (estimated), 8 pounds
Tikal is a handsome fellow who enjoys playtime with his doggy friends, cuddles with his humans, and a nice afternoon snack. He gets along well with other dogs but really enjoys the company of his people.

This sweet boy has a deformed eye and stiff gait, likely due to arthritis.

Tikal joined us from the Sacramento County Animal Shelter after they reached out to see if we could help address his medical needs.

Tikal is looking for a committed foster so that we can bring him into our program. He will need some follow-up visits at our vet clinic to treat heart worm.

Zoe - 7/7-7/18 only
Looks like: Miniature Pinscher
Female, 8 years old (estimated), 19 pounds
With her happy personality and zest for life, Zoe is ready to be someone's co-pilot! This affectionate and high energy gal is always up for an adventure! Zoe loves her walks and will greet all new people and dogs of all ages and sizes. This super smart girl has quickly bonded and acclimated to her foster family's routines. Her perfect day is eating a yummy breakfast, exploring the yard, morning walk, napping in cozy blankets or a sun puddle, playing independently with her stuffies, afternoon walk, dinner and cuddling on the couch. Zoe is a big snuggler who loves to give her people kisses and will wiggle her whole body with excitement upon seeing them. She will make a loyal and loving companion for a lucky family!

Zoe walks well on leash, good with car rides, and is people and dog friendly. She tends to chase after kitties, so is looking for a cat-free home. Zoe would do best in an active and child free home.

Zoe came to POMDR to find a new home after her guardian passed away.

Zoe is looking for a temp foster while her current foster is out of town.

Cadbury
Looks like: Chihuahua mix
Male, 10 years old (estimated), 10 pounds
This fun and active little dude is generous with his tailwags, is engaged, happy, and inquisitive all day long, and will provide undivided moral support to whatever you do. Cadbury loves to hang out with his people, snuggle belly-up on the couch, and soak up all the attention he can get. He enjoys roaming around the yard and going for brisk walks or trail hikes. On car rides, he is an excellent co-pilot, preferably taking in the scenery with his nose out the window. He can be selective about other doggy friends, and he will chase after and bark at cats and is thus looking for a feline-free home. We don't know yet how he behaves around children, but we assume that he will enjoy their company.

Besides missing a good number of his teeth, Cadbury is in excellent health. His muscles are toned and his joints are creak-free. With his smiley face and beautiful rich chocolate-colored coat, this lucky little charmer has everyone around him swooning in no time. He is very much looking forward to being part of a loving household and to be your best buddy forever.

Cadbury came to us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services so that we could address his dental disease.

Cadbury is looking for a foster home starting on June 12th.

Birdie
Looks like: Coonhound mix
Female, 8 years old (estimated), 50 pounds
Sweet, sweet Birdie charms everyone she meets! She has gotten along beautifully with other dogs of all shapes and sizes, and would love a home to call her very own.

This gorgeous gal was found wandering the streets of Salinas as a stray. She was brought to our local shelter, Hitchcock Road Animal Services, and then transferred to POMDR to find her forever home.

Birdie is currently in a loving foster home but we would love to have a back up foster offer for her in case she needs to move homes as she is an active girl and would do better staying out of a clinic suite. There are lots of other animals in her current home and we want to make sure to have a place for her to land if she doesn’t end up meshing with the rest of her foster siblings.

Artemis
Looks like: Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher mix
Female, 12 years old (estimated), 9 pounds
Artemis would like to find her very own pooch support person. This very sweet and lovable gal was found as a stray and had a pretty rough time until she finally landed with us at POMDR. At her foster home, she has been so grateful for a caring and peaceful environment to decompress in and has started to come out of her shell. Arty is in her own little world most of the time and does not engage much with people. By now though, she trusts being gently pet and kissed on the head, but is unsure about other forms of affection. She really enjoys yard explorations and slow, easy walks. This little Missy is mostly indifferent towards other dogs (and likely also towards cats) and gets a bit intimidated when fellow canines get right into her face. Arty would love to find a safe, quiet, and patient home with a nice cush bed where she can curl up and just be near you. She will follow you around, making sure that she does not lose track of you. She is fine when home alone now and then, but also appreciates coming along on car rides.

Arty appears to be a little hard of hearing and only has a few teeth left, but she very much enjoys three good meals of her special food. She will need frequent reminders to go outside to do her "business." As time goes by and Arty feels safe and loved, we expect her to relax more and more and let her guard down little by little. She will need people who are patient with her "Artemisms" and considerate of her space and pace. We can't wait to see her making the best of her second chance on life and are so looking forward to happy tail-wags sometime down the road.

Artemis came to us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services where she was very shut down and overwhelmed.

Artemis is looking for a calm foster home where she can feel safe and start to come out of her shell.

Bobby - 7/12-7/22 only
Looks like: Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua mix
Male, 9 years old (estimated), 14 pounds
Charming Bobby is a sweetheart that truly just wants to find his place in this scary world where he can live his dream of feeling safe and loved. This gentle and affectionate pup enjoys the simple pleasures in life. He enjoys a relaxing snuggle, light walks, the company of his human companions, and napping the day away.

Handsome Bobby joined us after spending some time in a shelter with dogs that would regularly bully him. Unfortunately, that led to him becoming very insecure and shut down. Thankfully we were able to bring him into our program where he's come out of his shell quite a bit while in his loving foster home. While he is understandably a little fearful of dogs he would likely do well coexisting with a home that has like minded pups willing to give him his space. We have not yet had the opportunity to see how he is with cats or children but we can imagine with his shy and gentle nature he would be just fine under the watchful eye of his pet parent.

Bobby joined us from Kern County Animal Services.

Bobby is looking for a temp foster while his current foster is out of town.

Lili and Suzie - 7/15-7/22 only
Looks like: Pekingese mix
Female, 8 years old, 20 pounds
Looks like: Pekingese mix
Female, 8 years old, 11 pounds
These fluffy sweethearts may already be a bonded pair, but we think you're going to bond with them right away, too. Suzie and Lili are a perfect pair, both sweet and loving, with personalities that complement each other beautifully. Whereas Suzie is a bit more independent and energetic, Lili is a little more low-key and mellow. But for both of them, their favorite thing to do is snuggle straight into your heart.

These snuggly sweeties would do great in a home where they're the only fuzzy family members. However, these loving ladies are great with children. They love nothing more than cuddling up with their human siblings.

Suzie and Lili came to us as guardian surrenders after their senior guardian passed away. Now, they're looking for a forever home just as loving as their former.

We are looking for a temporary foster home while their long-term fosters are out of town.
