Dogs2We are proud of our hometown Rocky Point for many reasons, and others agree. According to TripAdvisor, our city is the most popular destination in all of Northern Mexico. Beautiful beaches, friendly locals, good food, fun bars, kayaking, jet skiing and so much more! People come here from all over the world to visit our wonderful city, and we want this to continue for many years to come. In order to keep our city as a tourist destination and to continue bringing jobs and money into our economy, we need to solve the pet overpopulation problem. Here at Barb’s Dog Rescue, we are trying to do just that and we hope you will join in and support our efforts!

At the rescue, we take in dogs that visitors to Rocky Point and locals find wandering around the town. We also help the city’s animal care and control department when they are overrun with stray and abandoned animals. There are even times when dogs just show up on our doorstep, sensing that this is a safe place where they can get a good meal and out of harm’s way. In fact, this past year in 2014, we adopted out a record number of 101 dogs – our best year and most adoptions ever! This does not even count all the dogs that were saved and that are still at the rescue waiting for their forever homes (there are many more animals waiting for people just like you to come adopt them!) That is 101 dogs that are now in good homes, off the streets and won’t ever have to spend another night cold, scared and alone.

Beauty2One of the dogs that we have at the rescue now who would love to add to these adoption statistics is Beauty! She is a 7 year old spayed female Australian Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix and she is a very gentle girl. Beauty was found roaming a dirt road in town and scrounging around for food. A wonderful local woman rescued her from starvation and brought her to Barb’s Dog Rescue where she knew Beauty would be given a second chance at life. Now Beauty is happy and healthy and would really like to finish her remaining years with a family of her own. Remember the many benefits of adopting an adult dog – you will not have to worry about all the puppy issues like chewing and house-breaking and they don’t require 24/7 monitoring! Not that we don’t all love puppies too but with Beauty, you can save yourself some time and work!

Please come by to meet Beauty and all of the others here at Barb’s Dog Rescue. We are always open, so stop in to say hello and visit with some of the rescue gang. As always, we are grateful for any and all donations and we are especially in need of dog food.
