Springtime Brings Lots of Puppies
You don’t have to be a Rocky Point resident to recognize the iconic yellow and red billboard that greets residents and visitors, alike, as they enter or leave our little oasis by the sea. Barb’s Dog Rescue has saved and eventually found homes for thousands of animals in the almost 20 years that Barb has dedicated herself to this cause.
This March we find the Rescue blessed with the addition of several large litters of puppies. With 350+ dogs at the Rescue at any given time, giving our youngest pups all the time and attention, they crave is a challenge. Young puppies need human interaction to prepare them for adoption. Our puppies enjoy visitors and have so much love to give. Can there be anything more fun than playing with puppies? If you agree, stop by Barb’s any day between 10 am and 2 pm. We guarantee you will leave with a smile on your face.
This mother and her puppies were rescued in the nick of time. The mama dog was exhausted from constantly searching for enough food to allow her to continue to care for and feed her puppies. At Barb’s they are safe and have a warm place to rest with plenty of nutritious food and water. In a couple of months, they will all be ready for their forever homes.
Some arrive at the Rescue with histories almost too painful to imagine. The beautiful puppy below arrived at the Rescue with part of her back leg missing. We don’t know how this happened. Barb named her Gracie, and she is receiving all the special care, medical treatment and love she needs to grow strong and healthy in mind, body, and spirit. Without the generous donations from those who support the Rescue, saving dogs like this would be unbearably difficult.
Even though this article is about puppies, we must remind you that at Barb’s Dog Rescue there is an incredible variety of dogs waiting for a new family to arrive and take them to their forever home. Whether you are looking for a larger, active dog or the tiniest of lap dogs, exactly what you are looking for can be found at Barb’s. All colors, all sizes, all waiting to share their life with you.
