The town of Pomona was named for the ancient Roman goddess of fruit. Though the name came about due to a contest, it proved prophetic as vineyards flourished here in the 1880's. Citrus orchards and olive groves replaced vineyards in the 1890's, and Pomona has maintained an economic lead as a major producer of citrus fruit. But don't let Pomona's commercial success fool you, as residents here are crazy about their pups! Three veterinarian clinics are available in Pomona to take loving care of all your dog's needs.
