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. Click here for more information about volunteering and fostering and to fill out an online volunteer questionnaire.

The following dogs need foster homes:


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 9 years
Weight: 15 pounds
Gender: Female

Autumn really needs our help! She was picked up as a stray and was really struggling to even move. She has a severe limp that the shelter thinks is a broken pelvis. She was likely hit by a car. She is sweet as can be despite being a bit down on her luck and we are happy to get her the medical help she needs.

We are looking for someone who can keep her on crate rest while she heals up from her injury.

Autumn will be coming to us as soon as we have a foster lined up to help her recover. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 10 years
Weight: 7 pounds
Gender: Female

Ophelia has a wonderful little personality! She is curious and wants to explore her surroundings but also is happy being in your lap. Bring out the treats and you will have her full attention. She wags her little tail and sticks out her tongue in anticipation of anything remotely food-like. Ophelia is a slam dunk dog!

Ophelia joined us from Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter.

Ophelia is currently at one of our partnering vet clinics awaiting a foster. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Baby Blanca

Breed: Small Mixed Breed
Age: 1 year
Estimated weight: 9 pounds
Gender: Female

Blanca is excellent with people! She has no hesitation about approaching you, putting her paws on your knee and asking to be picked up. She doesn't mind being held and will give you kisses while you carry her around. That being said, she is a little under socialized to the world and hesitant about meeting new dogs. Her ideal adopter has some experience socializing a puppy or is willing to take her to classes to help her become more confident.

She is playful with small dogs at home once she is feeling comfortable. She has a very happy personality and really enjoys the company of gentle children. She has also lived with cats without any issues.

Baby Blanca came to us when her guardian could no longer keep her.

Baby Blanca is looking for a foster and hopefully in this home she will have ample opportunities to become more socialized and confident. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.


Breed: Papillion
Age: 7 years
Weight: 12 pounds
Gender: Male

Keeper is a little bashful at first, but he warms up eventually and wants to sit in your lap. Beyond that, he's adorable! He has those big Papillon ears that are too cute. Keeper seems like he has been through a lot in the past few months and he'd appreciate some stability. Since he is a bit timid, he should go to a quiet, calm home with no children.

Keeper is easily stressed and his reaction to stress is vomiting. To keep him comfortable, he should avoid active areas and be removed from things that are bothering him. He does not care for car rides so would prefer to avoid them. He does love walks around the neighborhood. Ideally, someone home more often than not is best as he does have separation anxiety.

Keeper comes to us from Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter where he was surrendered by a disabled guardian who was no longer able to care for him.

Keeper would love to find a quiet, calm foster home. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Mr. Dusty

Breed: Medium Mixed Breed
Age: 11 years
Weight: 39 pounds
Gender: Male

Dusty is a calm, sweet dog with a constant wagging tail. He will give you a gentle nudge with his muzzle for more attention. He is affectionate and friendly. He will bond quickly to his future person.. Dusty has some age related hip and leg issues, so he needs to live in a single story home. He LOVES to go for walks, and is excellent on leash. He will be a great companion for some lucky person.

He recently went to lunch at a restaurant patio with other dogs, diners, and the usual activity, and he was perfectly well behaved. He is very treat motivated for training, but ignored the diners and their food.

Dusty was picked up as a stray and went unclaimed at Salinas Animal Services. His exceptional personality drove POMDR to help him find a new home. Dusty has chased a cat in his yard so will need a careful introduction to any cats in his new home. He prefers not to be left alone for too long and a home with a nice calm dog would be helpful.

Mr. Dusty is currently with a foster but he isn't getting along with their personal dogs. We are looking for a quiet foster home that doesn't have any other dogs that would be open to fostering him. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.
