Thanks to all of you who have made the short drive out to Barb’s to donate food and other supplies, and to visit with all the loving dogs and puppies. It truly makes a difference in the dog’s lives, and also helps the rescue to continue to grow and be a part of our wonderful community. We’ve had a constant influx of new dogs and puppies this summer. Many of them are starving and underweight, some need medical attention, and all need love. Our construction projects still continue on the house, clinic and yard areas and hopefully will be complete in the very near future. Please excuse our mess while we complete these upgrades.
There are newly erected, eye-catching, bright yellow and red signs on Highway 8 to show everyone where Barb’s Dog Rescue is. Just go north of the Caborca exit about two miles, and follow the signs on the west side of the road. It’s the best place in town if you need to see wagging tails and get a loving puppy fix. We continue to strive to find loving, forever homes for our dogs/puppies. We adopted out a little Chihuahua and a puppy named Ashley in June which takes us to 50 adoptions for the year!
Sadly, we lost Sambo, one of our long time dogs in June. He passed in Barb’s arms as she was rushing him to the vet. And Buddy, our big black dog, is suffering through a tick disease that affects so many of the dogs in the Rocky Point region. Tick collars and spray would be very much appreciated.
We are in the process of putting together our first annual fundraiser this coming November or December. If you have an idea or would like to help us organize event, we welcome your help! We are also looking for people who travel between Phoenix and Puerto Peñasco that would be willing to bring back supplies that have been donated in Phoenix. We also need foster families who can take in puppies or small dogs for a few weeks. We supply all the food and cover any medical costs. Fosters usually have the dogs/puppies for two to four weeks. Contact us if you can help.
With summer upon us, we have some hot weather needs that would help this canine crew live more comfortably. Five gallon or larger plastic water dishes would be very helpful. We would like to put wooden lattice panels (or plastic slats that fit in chain-link fencing) around parts of the outside fences and some of the pens that are out in the open. That would block out the sunshine, and still allow the breezes to get through. As always, we need a lot of dog food. Financial donations help cover medical expenses. Donations can be made on our website or Facebook page.
