Everytime I think that we are in a lull with regard to Poms in need I get the reminder directly to my e-mail in box! More poms need our help! We recently adopted out 3 of our long time rescues only to get in 5 new ones!!!
This is fortunate for those who want to adopt but sad to see so many of the breed we love in need of love themselves. We keep pushing forward to rehabilitate those who come to us and find them homes where they can thrive.
This is not without expense. I'll provide a rundown here of the costs involved to get a rescue pom ready for adoption:
Spay/Neuter $145 - $200 Rabies vacccine $12 - $15 Microchip $25 - $40 Regular vaccines $10 - $12 Vet Visit $40 - $55 Worming $1 - $5 Flea & Tick $10 - $15 Heartworm Test (we don't do unless asked) $27 - $33 Stool Sample $30 - $50 Dental $175 - $225
At the low end it's about $475.00 to do all of this for a dog and at the high end it's $650 to get them ready for adoption! Some of the shelters have done many or most of these things for us. However, that's not very often when we get dogs that have had most or all of the care before coming to us.
This is why your donations are so important to keeping us operating and available for the dogs.
We have incured many vet expenses over the last few months and would love to have some donations to cover them. Vet visits are one of the biggest expenses at any rescue and they are an absolute must. Please help us out with any amount you can give. Thanks!

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!
