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:

Jefferson
Looks like: Chihuahua/Terrier mix
Male, 9 years old (estimated), 10 pounds
Jefferson is a regal little fella who has a lot of change and is ready to start his new chapter! He can be shy when first meeting new people so a slow introduction would work best with him. He enjoys going for a nice stroll but then would like to cozy up for an afternoon snooze session. He gets along well with other dogs but we aren't quite sure how he feels about kitties or kiddos.

Jefferson's guardian recently moved into hospice care and has been being cared for by a Good Samaritan.

Jefferson is coming to us for evaluation on Wednesday, May 1st and we would love for him to go home with a foster that day!

Taz
Looks like: Terrier/Chihuahua mix
Male, 9 years old (estimated), 10 pounds
Taz is a devilishly cute little guy who has had a rough time lately and is looking for his luck to change! He may take a minute to warm up so he needs someone willing to go at his pace when meeting people. He gets along well with other dogs but we don't know how he interacts with children or kitties at this time.

Taz's guardian had to move into hospice care and is being cared for by a Good Samaritan.

Taz is coming to us for a temperament evaluation on Wednesday, May 1st and we would love to have a foster home lined up for him!

Rex
Looks like: Fox Terrier mix
Male, 10 years old (estimated), 20 pounds
Rex is quite the worldly pup! His previous guardian spoke Spanish to him so he is bilingual. Rex is a loving guy and likes meeting new people in the hopes that he will get some affection. He enjoys meeting doggy friends out on a walk around the neighborhood and then a nice little nap to round out the afternoon. He gets along well with other dogs and children but we aren't sure how he is around kitties.

Rex is coming to us because his guardian recently passed away.

Rex is coming to us for a temperament evaluation on Wednesday, April 24 and we would love to have a foster home for him to go straight into!

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 gets along well with other dogs, but 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 needs a new foster home with dogs that would be up for playing with him and don't mind his over-excited attempts to make friends!

Maggie
Looks like: Lhasa Apso mix
Female, 11 years old (estimated), 16 pounds
Sweet, sweet Maggie! This girl is bound to steal your heart in a heartbeat! With those incredibly soft, soulful eyes and her sparkling personality, what's not to love? She gets along great with other dogs, and don't let her age fool you, she will even run around and play with other pups who are up for it! Maggie would be an excellent addition to any home ready to shower her with love.

We don't know yet how she is with children, but she has gotten along well with a dog-savvy cat.

Maggie joined us from Santa Cruz County Animal Services to find that lucky forever home!

Maggie is currently cozied up at our vet clinic but with how loving and people oriented Maggie is, we'd love nothing more than to see her join a foster family soon!

Jessie
Looks like: Terrier mix
Female, 8 years old (estimated), 11 pounds
What's not to love about sweet Jessie? This loving little lady adores spending time with her people- that's her favorite part of her day! She'd love a home where her humans can be with her most of the day! Jessie gets along well with older children but we havent seen her around little ones yet. She gets by just fine with other dogs although she can be intimidated by some larger dogs so a dog of her size or smaller would be her preference for a house mate. She's also happy to be the apple of your eye as an only dog. She even gets along well with kitties!

Sweet Jessie joins us after her guardian's work situation changed and working long days, is not around enough for Jessie's best interest.

Jessie is joining us on Wednesday, April 24th for evaluation. We'd love for her to land in a foster home that same day for an easy transition.

Finn
Looks like: Labrador Retriever mix
Male, 10 years old (estimated), 55 pounds
In many ways, Finn is a quintessential Lab mix. This sweet goof wants to be where the people are, whether that means going on an adventure or lazing about on the couch. Despite his senior dog status, he's got plenty of energy to burn. But, in other ways, Finn is uniquely himself. He always wants to stop and smell the roses on walks (literally), and if you have treats and love (and more treats), he'll never leave your side.

Finn was recently treated at our Monterey vet clinic for a mass and some hair loss. He will require additional vet trips to ensure he's on the mend properly. This lovable guy is working on reducing his leash reactivity, and we're excited to share the tools of his continued success. Finn does have experience coexisting with cats and has done well with other dogs in our program, but we have not yet seen him interact with kids.

This adorable guy joined POMDR from Santa Cruz County Animal Services after he was found as a stray.

Finn's current foster has had a change in her situation and needs to find a new foster for him before the end of April.

Toblerone
Looks like: Chihuahua Mix
Male, 11 years old (estimated), 6 pounds
Toblerone is as sweet as his name suggests! This little nugget gets along well with people of all ages and still gets zoomies when he is extra excited. Toblerone will accompany you on a walk if you insist, but he is also happy to nap the day away snuggled in blankets.

He has lived with cats and other similarly sized dogs before, but can get scared of larger, rowdy dogs after being attacked by a large breed dog when he was a puppy.

Toblerone came to us after his guardian could no longer care for him.

Toby is coming to us for evaluation on Friday April 12th and we're hoping to find him a nice foster home he can nest in!

Zoe
Looks like: Miniature Pinscher
Female, 10 years old (estimated), 20 pounds
Don't let Zoe's age deceive you! This gal is still full of energy and loves her walks and playing. She may take a bit to warm up to you, but once she does she loves being around people. She is good with other dogs and children, but tends to chase after kitties so would do best in a feline-free home. Zoe is looking for a fairly active home where she can get in the walks and playtime that she loves.

Zoe's guardian recently passed away and is looking for her new forever home.

Zoe is coming to us for evaluation on 4/19 and we would love to have a foster home for her to go straight into!

Clark
Looks like: Beagle mix
Male, 11 years old (estimated), 40 pounds
Clark is on the case in true Beagle fashion! He loves to put his nose to the ground and sniff out all he can. He has recently discovered walks as his owner was too frail to walk him and loves a little stroll around the block. Clark is a loving guy willing to accept scratches from anyone doling them out. He loves children and gets along with other dogs, but has had no interaction with kitties. After a short walk, he is ready to snuggle into his bed for a nice long snooze.

Clark's guardian recently passed away and is looking for a loving home to land in.

Clark is coming to us for a temperament evaluation on Friday, April 19th and we would love to have a foster home lined up!

Clover
Looks like: Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix
Female, 8 years old (estimated), 6 pounds
Clover is the cutest little ball of fluff! She's so cute, we aren't even sure she's a real dog! She is a happy girl who will greet you with tail wags and body wiggles! She loves her people. In fact, her favorite place is right in your lap. Her second favorite place is out on a walk!

She gets along well with other dogs when off leash in the house or yard, but she does seem to have some considerable reactivity when wishing to guard her favorite people. Her next home will need to be up for some training fun with their new family member. We aren't sure yet how she is with kiddos or cats.

Little Clover came to us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services after they reached out to see if we could help her find a forever home.

Clover is currently snuggled into a suite at our clinic in Monterey but would love to go home with you right away!

Harley Boy
Looks like: Mastiff, Pit Bull mix
Male, 5 years old (estimated), 75 pounds
This beautiful Pittie boy is a Lab/Pitt/Mastiff mix named Harley. He would love to land in his next home that can give him loads of attention and take him for some fun adventures. This incredibly smart lad knows his basic commands, walks well on leash, and is even crate trained. Harley does great with other dogs and even cats but people are his favorite company. If he could, he would be a lap dog, he is very social and loves to be around people and kids. He's a gentle giant with so much love to share with his next family!

Harley is looking to come to POMDR because his former guardians living situation has changed and they are no longer able to keep him.

Bobby
Looks like: Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua mix
Male, 9 years old (estimated), 13 pounds
Bobby has had a rough time lately. This poor sweet little gentleman was getting bullied by some other dogs at the shelter and started to shut down. We're grateful that we were able to scoop him up to help him find that perfect landing spot where he will be bullied no longer!

Bobby is looking for a home that can go at his pace, allowing him to open up in time and provide the nurturing he needs to come out of his shell. We can't wait to see him flourish once he has the love and care that he needs! We aren't sure quite yet how he is with kitties or children.

Sweet Bobby came to us from Kern County Animal Services after they reached out to see if we could take him in to get him the care that he deserves.

Bobby is currently snuggled into a suite at our vet clinic but we would love to get him into a foster home right away so that he can begin to blossom!

Mojo
Looks like: Yorkshire Terrier/Poodle mix
Male, 13 years old (estimated), 10 pounds
Mojo is an absolutely charming little fella who would love to bring some joy into your home! This brave little guy is vision impaired and can see some shadows, but can be slightly startled if you don't first announce your presence with a gentle touch. He also has some hair loss so will likely need some follow-ups at our vet clinic to get him looking his best. He gets along great with other dogs, but we aren't sure how he is with kids or kitties.

Mojo joined us from San Jose Animal Care and Services so that we could address his medical needs and find him that senior savvy home.

Mojo is currently snuggled into a suite at our clinic but would love to go into a foster home right away!

Jeff
Looks like: Chiweenie
Male, 10 years old (estimated), 9 pounds
Jeff is quite a dashing young gent! This sweet guy is a bit shy when first meeting new friends, but he warms up quickly, especially if you have an open lap to cuddle into. He just loves to curl up in a lap! This boy is an excellent snuggle bug.

Jeff gets along great with other pups! So much so, that he's known to cozy up in a warm bed with a dog friend. We don't know yet how he is around kitties or children.

This sweet, shy boy joined us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services after he was picked up as a stray.

This sweet, snuggly boy needs a new foster by 4/19. Could that be you?

Bradley
Looks like: Chiweenie
Male, 8 years old (estimated), 9 pounds
What's not to love about Bradley? Those big brown eyes of his are bound to melt your heart! He's looking for his forever snuggle buddy, could that be you? Bradley loves other dogs! He's even known to cuddle up in a bed with another dog for comfort and support. Bradley is a bit on the shy side so he asks for some gentle warm up time in his next home.

Bradley gets along great with other dogs but we don't know how this sweet little guy does with cats or children quite yet.

This sweet, shy boy joins us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services after he was picked up as a stray.

Bradley is looking for a new foster who is home most of the time as he gets sad being left out of all the fun!

Fergie
Looks like: West Highland Terrier/Poodle mix
Female, 13 years old (estimated), 15 pounds
Fergie is a fabulous girl who is looking for a loving, mellow, calm spot to land! She has some significant visual impairment and is a bit unsure of the world around her, so would need a home that can keep her safe in this respect. She will likely need to be carried outside to go potty and should be in a home free from stairs or other potential dangers due to her vision impairment. She gets along well with other dogs, but we don't know how she is around children or kitties.

Fergie came to us from San Jose Animal Care and Services so that we could address her medical needs.

Neptune
Looks like: Labrador Retriever mix
Male, 6 years old (estimated), 53 pounds
Neptune is the perfect combination of high energy outdoor goofball and mellow indoor cuddlebug. Outside, he is a very active guy and loves to run, play, and explore. After he has burned some energy, he enjoys indoor chill time with his people, getting hugs, belly rubs, doling out face licks, sneaking kisses, and stretching out on top of you if you let him. His foster family adores many traits about Neptune, including how very trusting he is, gentle around feeding time, his slobber-free drinking, and perfect score on no-potty-accidents. This amazing pup is friendly with any person and dog he meets and is excited about all interactions. He would be very happy as a single dog or have an equally active canine buddy, but he has a pretty strong prey drive and is looking for a home without feline housemates. Neptune is a super curious and strong guy and he would appreciate a patient human companion with whom he can practice how to walk on leash without pulling or jumping and who can teach him how to be calm when he needs to be. He already knows some fun commands and can sit, lay down, shake, and stay on command as long as you have some yummy treats to reward him with. On car rides, he likes sticking his head out of the window, or, if the window is not down, he just curls up quietly.

Neptune is a dog who would really would prefer to be with his humans most of the time receiving lots of love, attention, and continued training. He dreams about being part of an active family, who will keep his smart brain engaged and take him on lots adventures.

This sweet boy joined us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services after he was found as a stray.

Neptune needs a new foster to take over his care before May 10th. He would love a foster who is able to continue his training with leash skills and polite greetings with humans so he can learn not everyone wants a big dog jumping in their lap to greet them!

Mini - 4/29-5/10 only
Looks like: Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix
Female, 6 years old (estimated), 9 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 temp foster home while her foster is out of town.

Pearl
Looks like: Poodle mix
Female, 10 years old (estimated), 10 pounds
Pretty little Pearl is as sweet as they come! She's a tiny bit rough around the edges at the moment, but we know in time and with some TLC she's going to come into her namesake as a beautiful gem! She's always on the lookout for a comfy snuggle spot. Pearl would do best as the only dog in a home as she'd prefer to be the apple of your eye and center of your attention!

This girl sweet girl can be bit fearful of change. She isn't the biggest fan of car rides at the moment, so it would be safest for her to travel in a crate while in the car. We don't know how Pearl does around kitties or children at this time.

This curly little girl joined us from Hitchcock Road Animal Services after she was picked up as a stray.

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.

Rusty
Looks like: Pit Bull mix
Male, 10 years old (estimated), 95 pounds
What a gorgeous boy Rusty is! This incredibly loving guy is looking for his forever landing spot. Could that be with you? Rusty was saved earlier this year after being found in the countryside with a rope embedded in his neck. Ouch! The wound was badly infected at the time. This super guy is incredibly resilient and has come a long way with the help of some very caring people who have given him the TLC that he needed.

Rusty is a lovely, mellow senior boy. He enjoys his leisurely walks and spending lots of time with his human companions. He gets along well with dogs of all shapes and sizes, but we are not sure yet how he does around children or kitty friends.

This handsome guy is hoping to join us as a rescue transfer from Pinky Paws Search & ResQ now that he is all healed up, feeling better and ready to find a new home.

We need to find a foster committed to fostering Rusty through adoption before we can bring him into POMDR.

Pepper
Looks like: Husky mix
Female, 9 years old (estimated), 85 pounds
Beautiful Pepper has quite the story to tell. She was saved a few years back after being found living on a mattress off the freeway! This poor girl has been through a lot in her days, but luckily she landed with some very caring people who have given her the TLC that she needed.

This sweet lady loves her exercise time and would love to join you for some walks or yard time. Pepper gets along well with dogs of all shapes and sizes but we are not sure yet how he does around children or kitty friends.

After being saved from the side of the road and decompressing in her temporary foster's home, this sweet girl is ready for her forever home, and we would love nothing more than to help her find it!

We need to find a foster committed to fostering Pepper through adoption before we can bring her into POMDR.
