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. If you are interested in fostering any of the dogs on this page, email us.

POMDR will provide 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:

Bogey Girl

Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 9
Weight: 10 pounds
Gender: Female

Bogey Girl is a treat loving, gentle pet adoring sweetheart. She has great energy and is excellent on leash. She can join you for walks and trips to the park or while on errands. She is ready to bond to a loving person and will follow close behind when you walk around your house. She is a proper little lady in the home and finds a comfortable place to relax while you are doing the same. She will likely transition quickly to your routine and life and you'll quickly discover how great a dog she is.

Bogey Girl came to us from Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter. She was dropped off by her guardians and was absolutely terrified while there. We are happy to have her in our program and excited for her to find a forever home.

Bogey will be coming to us on Friday August 16th, we would love to line up a foster for her before then. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 7 years
Weight: 8 pounds
Gender: Male

This poor guy was found by Animal Control who thought he was bitten by another dog. Sadly the bite was harmful enough to have injured his eye and cheek area. He was on his last day at the shelter but they reached out to us in the nick of time. We are hoping to help him gain weight and get back on his feet. Despite his injury, he is a very friendly little guy. He will greet everyone who gives him a chance and bonds quickly.

Since these photos, he has had both eyes removed as they were causing him pain while being no longer functional. He is brave and navigates an area quickly. His affection will melt your heart.

Joshua is safe and sound at the vet getting the medical attention he needs. Once he is cleared, we will need a soft place for him to go. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 13 years
Weight: 15 pounds
Gender: Male

Chesterfield, or Chester for short, comes to us because his guardian passed away. The family was unable to keep him but did their best to find him care. He is a friendly little tyke, often wearing a huge smile and wagging his tail. He is more of a "next to your lap" instead of a bonafide lap dog. He gets along with other pups and even still plays!

Chester is at our local vet awaiting a foster. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Medium Mixed Breed
Age: 8 years
Weight: 55 pounds
Gender: Female

Saige is a total sweetheart. She loves to chase tennis balls, fetching them back to the thrower to go again. She's a smart cookie and already knows some commands, likely a great candidate for further training. She is good around other dogs, being more patient and understanding than playful, but that could change when she bonds with a dog. She has a lot of potential and could really settle into a routine with her new people. She is overly interested in cats and needs to go to a home without them.

Saige came to us from Hollister Animal Shelter, where she landed after she was found as a stray. She was adopted but the person realized that her current lifestyle was not ideal for caring for a dog and knew Saige deserved better.

Saige is currently with her previous person but needs to move to a new foster home by the last week of August. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 8 years
Weight: 13 pounds
Gender: Male

Drew comes to us from Monterey County Animal Services. He was brought to our attention because the shelter staff and one of our volunteers noticed he was not doing well in the shelter. He is super timid and the stress of being at the shelter was taking a toll on him. He is great in meeting people and dogs, so we wanted to help him. There was almost an immediate change in his demeanor once he was out and mingling! He seems much happier and is ready for a home and family.

Drew is currently in a temporary foster home just to get him out of the shelter. This is a temporary solution so we are looking for someone to foster him Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 13 years
Weight: 14 pounds
Gender: Male

Mickie needs our help because his guardian recently passed away and the good samaritan who took him in can't keep him forever. He's been living with several other dogs, of all sizes, in his temporary home and done well with everyone. He waits patiently when left home alone and has a nice, mellow energy level. Mickie needs a soft place to land until we can find him a forever home.

Mickie is currently safe in a temporary home but will be coming into our program on on August 19th and we need to find a foster for him then. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 7 years
Weight: 11 pounds
Gender: Male

Cinco is a bouncy, happy guy that came to us from Salinas Animal Services. He is eager to greet you with a wagging tail and contagious enthusiasm. Cinco remains his happy-go-lucky self around other dogs and should do fine living with canine siblings. This handsome boy is ready to be your shadow. He will be a great companion for in an adult-only home.

Cinco is currently boarding at our local vet. We would love to find him a soft place to land. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 13 years
Weight: 20 pounds
Gender: Female

Sweet Pea gets along well with other dogs and is a bashful, but sweet, little lady. She can be independent and doesn't mind if you work or aren't home all the time. Sweet Pea's guardian passed away recently from cancer, and no one in the family can keep her. She was surrendered with PopEye, who is deaf and more in need of a canine companion. She acts as a great leader for him, allowing them both to have greater confidence. While it would be sweet to have them adopted together, they are fine living separately.

SweetPea is very affectionate and quite the independent thinker too! She's definitely not a needy dog but absolutely loves being doted on. She's quite spry and does exceptionally well on moderate to hard hikes and always gives a gentle hello to canines and humans along the way.

She's a terrier with a strong prey drive and will want to chase lizards, birds, and more on hikes and walks. She is easily corrected while on leash. She will chase while off-leash in a backyard and thus will chase cats.

SweetPea is great in the home and after some coaxing into her crate, sleeps well throughout the night. She adores her naps too. She's an ideal, profoundly sweet, loving pup.

Sweet Pea is currently with a foster. She has become way too interested in her cats and for that reason, we need to find her a new foster WITHOUT cats. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Chihuahua
Age: 7 years
Weight: 13 pounds

Cheeka came to us because her guardian had to move to a location that will only allow two dogs. They had to reduce their pack size to accommodate the rules. Cheeka was left needing a new home, however, it may be a blessing in disguise as she is socializing more and have positive experiences with people. She is more curious and outgoing and it is wonderful to see her seeking attention and affection. She is super cute and loves to cuddle. Cheeka is ready, and if you are looking for a dog to fall in love with and grow a special bond to, then she is your dog.

Cheeka is currently with a temporary foster and is looking for a full-time one. This little cutie wants to cling by your side. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
