Everyone at Barb’s Dog Rescue wants to welcome you to Rocky Point this summer! We have numerous outdoor activities and water sports for you to participate in, great restaurants and shops and so much more. Don’t forget one of the city’s most unique highlights during your time here – the countless smiling faces and wagging tails that belong to the puppies and dogs at our rescue! These animals would love nothing more than to receive a visit from you and if you have a little extra time, a scratch behind the ear or a few tennis ball throws would make their week!
The summer is an especially difficult time of the year for homeless dogs and cats on the streets of Rocky Point. Our beautiful city with its pristine beaches and gorgeous blue ocean can be extremely hot for an animal that does not have a roof over its head for shade and protection or plentiful water to drink each day. Dehydration and heat exhaustion can set in quickly and at Barb’s Dog Rescue, we have many dogs and puppies that are turned into us that are in terrible condition and on the verge of death as a result of the heat. Our team of volunteers and rescue workers are on duty 24 hours a day helping the animals that are turned into us and work tirelessly nursing them back to health. All animals are given vaccinations immediately upon arrival at the rescue and will be given their full required set of shots depending on their age during their stay at Barbs. The dogs and puppies are de-wormed, treated for skin irritations, infections or any other illnesses or conditions that they may be suffering from. They are seen by a local vet and spayed and neutered when they are healthy enough (or old enough) to undergo the procedure as well.
We would not be able to help all of these dogs and puppies without your support and all donations are greatly appreciated. Donations can either be dropped off at the rescue, mailed to P.O. Box 116 Lukeville 85341 or at www.barbsdogrescuerp.com. We can also coordinate donations to be transported from Phoenix to Rocky Point.
