Boxer3As we continue enjoying the beautiful weather in Rocky Point this time of year, we also have a great deal of other wonderful things to celebrate here at Barb’s Dog Rescue. We have saved the lives of over 160 dogs since the beginning of 2015. This is more than ever before and every day the number keeps getting higher and higher. Spay/neuter and wellness clinics are being planned and carried out to help reduce the pet overpopulation problem in the city – thanks to a lot of hard work by the Rocky Point animal care and control, veterinarians, rescues and volunteers. A lot of amazing construction has taken place at our rescue facility and American Home Services has put up new enclosures for the dogs, shade structures, a fountain, trees and a quarantine area. Please come by for a visit to see for yourself – we would be happy to show you around! Most exciting of all is the news that Barb’s Dog Rescue is now officially a 501c3 non-profit organization which means that your donations to help homeless dogs are now tax-deductible!

Barb’s Dog Rescue is a no-kill dog rescue facility here in Rocky Point. The dogs are saved from the streets or from owners who can no longer keep them and are brought to us by concerned citizens, tourists and the city’s animal catcher. We keep all of the dogs for however long it takes to make sure they are 100 percent healthy before placing them up for adoption. This also enables us to get to know each dog and their behavior and personality so that we can make rescuing and adopting easy and fun for all of you. Whether you are looking to save a life or just want to say hi some pretty great dogs, we would love to have you pay us a visit!

Our feature dog of the month is Chata, a loving and friendly 2 year old pure Boxer that is up for adoption at the rescue. She was brought to us by Rocky Point Animal Control and she had 6 babies that she nursed and raised until they were healthy pups. They have all been adopted out and now it is Chata’s turn to find a good home and second chance she deserves! She is a wonderful dog that gets along extremely well with other dogs and would make a great pet for any family. All of our dogs including Chata, have all of their vaccinations, are spayed/neutered and have been vet checked. We provide paperwork and shot records required for a safe and easy border crossing with your new pet.
