BarbsRescue-1 BarbsRescue-2

The summer is officially here and with it the warm weather, kids out of school and lots of activities to enjoy. Definitely a great time to head out to spend some beach-time in Rocky Point or to stop by Barb’s Dog Rescue to play with one of the many puppies and dogs. Better yet, pick up a rescue dog for a bit and take him or her for a fun day at the beach!

There are always a whole lot of young puppies this time of year which is what we call “puppy season” and we really would appreciate any volunteer help socializing them. With so many dogs that come into the rescue on a weekly basis, we are always in need of people to come play with the puppies and dogs and get them used to being held, walked and played with. Someone is always at Barb’s Dog Rescue so stop by anytime even if you just have a few minutes of time to give! We have more dogs than ever before thanks to a recently expanded shelter and larger dog runs and play areas so there is always work to be done and play time to be had.

All of the dogs at Barb’s Dog Rescue are up for adoption and we believe that each and every one of them – young or old, shy or extremely playful, small or big – deserve a home and a second chance. When a puppy or adult dog arrives at the rescue, we quarantine them to be sure that they are given the proper shots and are monitored for any health issues before introducing them to the rest of the dogs. All of the animals are spayed and neutered so that the cycle of pet overpopulation cannot continue with more litters of puppies – at least with the animals we are able to reach. All of the costs that go into helping each and every dog add up and now that Barb’s Dog Rescue is an official non-profit organization, we hope you will consider making a tax deductible donation to supporting our efforts.

Your support helps dogs like Kaylee who is our feature dog of the month! She is an 8 year old spayed female Chow mix and she is up for adoption at Barb’s Dog Rescue. She is a sweet and gentle dog that wants to be your best friend and we hope you will consider giving her a second chance at life. Rescued off the streets of Mexico, she will be a grateful and loyal companion.

We would not be able to help dogs like Kaylee without your support and all donations are greatly appreciated. Donations can either be dropped off at the rescue, mailed to P.O. Box 116 Lukeville 85341 or at We can also coordinate donations to be transported from Phoenix to Rocky Point.
