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:

Muñeco
Looks like: Chihuahua
Male, 15 years old, 7 pounds
Muñeco translates to "doll" in English and that is just what he is! Little Muñeco is an easy keeper and previously lived with cats. He likes keep tabs on where his humans are in the house and will accompany you around the house. He enjoys the company but is also ok with being left at home while you're away.

Muñeco is coming to us because his guardian's work needed them to move into a place that has a strict no pets policy.

Muñeco is still with his guardian's in their old home. We would like to line up a foster home for Muñeco to go directly to when they move at the end of the month.If you are interested in fostering and you are already a POMDR volunteer, email us. If you are interested in fostering and are not a volunteer yet, please fill out a volunteer application. Or, if you're interested in adopting, fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Gustavo
Looks like: Cocker Spaniel
Male, 11 years old, 30 pounds
Gustavo or Gus, is a handsome gentleman with some separation anxiety issues. He tends to get nervous when left alone and needs someone that can help him with that. He would like to best in a calm home environment with gentle, patient people.

Gustavo gets along fine with other dogs and is able to meet them without issues. That being said, we think he'd be fine a solo dog or with mellow companions. He is coming to us from the SPCA for Monterey County.

We are looking for a foster to commit to Gustavo before we can bring him into the program.If you are interested in fostering and you are already a POMDR volunteer, email us.

Dim Sum
Looks like: Chihuahua
Female, 12 years old, 8 pounds
Dim Sum's name is almost as cute as her giant ears. This little lady has an adventurous heart. She is pretty fearless and loves to explore every nook and cranny she can find but is surprisingly not big on walking. She really enjoys being held, though. She has some arthritis, which makes it challenging to go up or down stairs or furniture. She needs help better understanding the leash and is likely the culprit of why walks are not her priority. She is polite with other dogs and cats who mind her space. She will greet them but has no interest in mingling with them, she would rather be in your lap. She enjoys meeting new people.

Dim Sum is great in the home and being left alone, but will cry if crated. She has lived with indoor cats and does fine with them. She is also great meeting children. Dim Sum does have diminished hearing and vision. Her last dental had all of her teeth removed, but it does not slow her eating and a maze bowl is often used to help her eat appropriately. She has no off button when it comes to eating and she needs to be regulated by her future person. She is a mellow dog that is not interested in playing.

Dim Sum craves people. She is a wonderful friend and wants to lie down and be near her people. She occasionally whines if left behind in the car but is otherwise great for rides. A calm home with lots of snuggle time will be ideal for her. She does protect her food and water and we hope this diminishes and can be corrected. Dim Sum is potty pad trained she doesn't quite know how to tell people that she needs to go out but will use a potty pad if accessible. She is on heart medications and needs a kidney diet.

Dim Sum came to us because her guardian has a family member with autism and the disruption to his normal schedule has been really challenging for him. They think Dim Sum would be safer and happier in a new home.

Dim Sum is with a foster that is moving out of state on October 17th. They love her but sadly, we will need to find a local foster who can give Dim Sum a loving foster home.If you are interested in fostering and you are already a POMDR volunteer, email us.
