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.

The Big Idea

Peace of Mind Dog Rescue (POMDR) is dedicated to providing lifesaving care to homeless senior dogs in Monterey County, pulling vulnerable dogs from shelters and placing them in loving foster homes. This organization’s Big Idea builds on its mission by providing veterinary care through its private clinic, performing simple procedures and maintaining a local network for cardiology, oncology or other specialties. POMDR delivers customized care for hundreds of senior dogs and offers financial assistance for pet parents.

“Thank you for the absolutely amazing work you do. Being able to place Cleo with an organization like yours is allowing our family to find peace in the passing of my grandmother. My grandma was a lover of all animals and would be so happy knowing Cleo was under your care.”

- Megan B

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 $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
