Wow, what a year it's been already! We've had 4 dogs adopted so far this year! Bambi had been here for almost 2 years. He is the most handsome dog ever but had a fear biting problem. We did work with him and he improved but was still fearful of new people handling him. However, a wonderful couple from Berkeley came along and said they would accept him just the way he was. He's now comfortable with them and is no longer biting. They gave him the chance he needed to be a happy member of their family of 2 humans and one other dog! Long live Bambi, whoops he's now LOGAN and that's a great new name and beginning for him. Jinx an amazingly cute black and white owner surrender girl got adopted before she even hit the pages of Petfinder! A lovely woman and her son came to see a couple of the Calaveras girls but spotted Jinx right away. She picked her up and that was that! Ringo (a Chihuahua friend of the poms) never even made it out of his foster mom's place, she adopted him after having him for a few days! And little tiny Licorice now known as Madi is in her new home with her new "matching" black big sis who will teach her all she needs to know about being an adored pet and member of a loving family!!! Thanks to all who make these miracles possible?
If you are thinking about adopting a pom please go to the American Pomeranian Club website www.americanpomeranianclub.org to read all about this wonderful breed.
Great care and consideration should be given to getting a pet or adding a pet to your home and family. All members of the family should be in agreement to getting a new pet and all should meet prespective new pets.
All Pomeranians have some traits in common but temperment, size and prior experiences all have an effect on the individual dog so that too must be considered before adotpion.
Pomeranians have grooming needs greater than many breeds and that is a major consideration before adopting a pom. Another is a safe outside area for exercise and potty breaks, because ot their small size they can escape through many areas that are not even noticable or thought to be a problem with larger breeds. Even if they are good with children they should never be left alone with them because they can be easily injured by an accident with even the gentlest child. These are just a few things to think about before adopting a pom!!!
Nor Cal Pom Rescue is a tiny little Pomeranian Rescue in Santa Rosa, CA. We will accept Poms from shelters and owner surrenders. Once in our care they will receive any necessary vet care and always be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and properly groomed just for starters!
We strive to match the dog with the adoptive family on many levels (not unlike e-Harmony dating service!!!) so that the adoption will be satisfactory for all involved.
Our main goal is a quality adoption with a individual or family that is prepared to care properly for this Pomeranian for the rest of his or her life. Love is wonderful but is not enough to sustain man or animal. Adopters must also be able to provide for the safety, health, grooming and other physical needs of the dog in order for it to be a match!!!
Last but not least is our funding; we are delighted to accept donations as that is our only source of funding other than the adoption fee for each dog.
All adoption fees are tax deductible. If you need a receipt for a donation we can provide one as we are now a registered 501(c)(3) with non-profit status.
Unfortunately we do not have a public shelter for you to visit but fortunately our rescues are living in foster homes around the area. If you are seriously considering one of our Pomeranians for adoption please contact us via e-mail or phone and we can arrange a meeting with that dog.
No adoptions will be completed without an approved application on file!
