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.

When left alone, he just relaxes and sleeps and the foster has not heard him bark. While in the car, he settles into his spot and is a real good boy. He is content in a kennel but prefers to be sleeping next to his person.

Wynn has seizures that seem to be mostly controlled with medication three times daily. He is a champ at taking his pills and enjoys pill pockets! We are hopeful we can find someone who is able to understand sweet Wynn's medical needs and give him the happy life he deserves. He promises to love you for it!
Sadly, his guardian could no longer care for Wynn, and that is why he needs to find a new home.

Zoe was adopted from POMDR several years ago by a wonderful couple who adored her. She was attacked by a dog walking in the neighborhood and needed emergency care. Her family took great care of her and she recovered very well. She does have some residual hearing and visual impairment, but she gets around just fine and loves to go on short little walks and cuddle up for naps.
Zoe came back to POMDR because the adoptive family could no longer care for her. As much as they loved her, they knew that she needed a new home. Since POMDR has a lifetime commitment to our dogs, we took her back into foster care.
When she came back to POMDR she was very overweight. She has lost 10 pounds!! Her new family will need to make sure she maintains a healthy weight. Zoe would do well in a mellow home where she can get lots of love, and maybe has a yard to explore. She could be an only dog in the home, but she also gets along very well with other dogs. Zoe deserves her new forever home after the challenges she has faced.
Zoe originally came to POMDR after her guardian passed away. We hope to help her find her forever home!
