Dog Rescue Never Ends

Barb’s Dog Rescue has been rescuing dogs for over 20 years and this is a never ending job.  Summer is the hardest time for the rescue as the winter visitors who volunteer have gone home, thus they are short handed, but also what is more important as they can’t find the dog food needed for the mom’s and puppies.  We have to rely on having people bring the puppy chow down case by case.  The Why Not Travel Store has been generous in giving a space for food to be dropped off and then transported to Puerto Peñasco.

At any given day there are over 350 moms and pups.  That doesn’t include the ones that good Samaritans drop off, that have have found injured or badly malnourished and dehydrated.  It cost about $1000 per week for dog food alone and that does not count the medical attention that is needed.  Every dollar that is donated goes to everything involved with the dogs.  In summer, the water is not reliable so it needs to be trucked in to keep fresh water for these sweethearts. The electric costs are very high here in summer and the mom’s and newborn puppies need to stay cool. These are just a few of the major expenses every week that keep are needed to keep the doors open.

It is so rewarding to see the abused dogs flourish once they come to the rescue knowing that they are safe and will receive good food, clean water, a soft and safe place to sleep, but also loving hands to hold them and not abuse them.  If you are in town, you are invited to stop by and give puppy  love.

There is a constant need for dogs to be transported to their adoptive families or the partners such as HALO while they wait to be adopted.  If you are traveling back to Phoenix or Tucson and would love a furry travel companion, please contact the rescue to arrange to transport a couple.  Barb’s provides all the papers and shot records for you to take them across the border to their destination.  Transporting them allows the rescue to make room for more new arrivals that need help.  All dogs are also spayed or neutered before leaving the rescue. Remember there is never a charge to adopt a dog, but donations of either food or cash are welcome to continue the work of the rescue.

If you are thinking of getting a new furever family pet, please check out all the energetic puppies as well as senior dogs that reside at Barb’s Dog Rescue that are available.  They can be visited from 10 am to 2 pm every day of the week.

Come out and join the fun while enjoying the beautiful weather in Puerto Peñasco and the stunning  Sea of Cortez views.  Remember Rocky Point is only a 4 hour drive from Phoenix or Tucson.

Barb's Dog Rescue Online Auction is calling YOU!

Let me introduce you to Barb’s Dog Rescue, if you don’t already know her. Barb has been doing this for nearly 18 years and has rescued and adopted out  1,000 dogs every year for the past several years and growing.  She gives of herself 100% everyday to these discarded little souls. The rescue center is located just north of Puerto Peñasco, look for the big yellow signs.  You can donate dog food that you can purchase here and it is the Kirkland Chicken as well as Kirkland Puppy Chow.  About the same price as buying it at COSTCO and then having to haul it down.

As a community, we are helping her to raise funds to keep up with all the hungry little mouths.  These dogs come from all over the city and in some cases communities from outside the city.  People drop off puppies at the gate or drop off the pregnant mom. Sometimes animal control calls and out she goes to get them rescued.  In winter Rocky Point is full of generous visitors, but in summer many of the visitors go for cooler weather.  Unfortunately, the hungry mouths are still here.

Look at this face!

There are so many success stories of puppies as well as older dogs being adopted.  Every Veteran’s Day weekend we have our annual Bike Rally Festival and this year will be number 18.  These bikers and volunteers not only donate but many also adopt.  One such adoption came from of the crew that registers people for the “biggest rally this side of the border”.  Below are just a couple of the adopted puppies with their forever owners.  As you can see both puppies and older dogs are being adopted out.  Adopt.. don’t buy.  Barb charges nothing to adopt and the puppies are current on all shots and are either spayed or neutered and you will have all the paperwork to take them home.  All she asks is for a donation of food.
