Peace of Mind Dog Rescue


Our mission is to be a resource and advocate for senior dogs and senior people on California's Central Coast. We focus on helping dogs and people from Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties.

The Big Idea

Peace of Mind Dog Rescue (POMDR) has recently begun running their own vet clinic. Dogs are either surrendered to them by seniors who can no longer care for them, or are senior dogs POMDR takes in from local animal shelters. The goal is to re-home all dogs, and an essential element of success in re-homing older dogs is the nonprofit’s ability to provide vet care and treatment for dogs so the adopters do not incur astronomical costs immediately upon adoption. All of the dogs who come into their program receive a thorough veterinary exam, blood panel, dental cleaning and extractions as needed, biopsy/excision of suspicious lumps and masses as needed, spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, a microchip implant, medication for arthritis and other chronic conditions, and other diagnostics and procedures as deemed necessary by the veterinarian. Many of the senior dogs they bring in are in bad shape after suffering from neglect because their senior guardians were unable to pay for veterinary care and quality nutrition over a period of years.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for having so much love and compassion to help these babies of ours when we do not have the means, and in very crucial moments of life and death.

We’re In This Together.

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful.

Look for the 2020 Monterey County Gives! RFP (for applying nonprofits) in the Monterey County Weekly this June/July. Monterey County Gives! 2020 campaign kicks off in early November.

Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.
