Happy spring! Did we have a winter? If so, we missed it here at the shelter. But we can tell it’s getting hotter and the days are getting longer. Summer will be here soon. The hot summer months are the hardest for us. Donations drop to almost nothing. If you have ever thought about stopping in to drop off some donations or see our facility, please do so! Barb is always there to greet you with a smile and show you around. We need to stock up on dog food, money and shelter supplies now to carry us through the hot summer months. Look for the big yellow signs on the side of the road as you drive into or out of Peñasco on Highway 8. We are on the west side of the road, a short drive down the dirt road. Look for the house with all the dogs.
Also, if you know of a vet or vet tech that could donate time or supplies to help us keep the dogs in our care healthy please have them contact Barb. We have a great new clinic onsite. We just need a few vets or techs to volunteer some time. Even if it’s for a few hours the dogs would really appreciate it!
We also have some great puppies and dogs of all sizes that need forever homes. Stop in and spend some time with us. Not ready to adopt? Consider fostering a dog to give it a break from the shelter and help it find it’s forever home.
Someone asked us the other day why we help the stray dogs in Peñasco. We replied, “Why not?” If you want to see things change, let’s change them. Together we are stronger!
All donations are welcome. Please help us save as many dogs as possible. You can make an online donation on our website or Facebook page. You can also stop out to the shelter we are located north of town on Highway 8, the main highway between Puerto Peñasco and Sonoyta. When heading north out of town, Barb’s is located on the west (left) side of the road, about 2 ½ miles north of the Carbora turn off. Look for our bright yellow signs.
In case we don’t say it enough, we are so thankful to The City of Peñasco for their help and support. We also wish to thank all the animal rescues in Peñasco. Please consider adopting one of our Mexico mutts. They make the best pets!
