TerriersIt’s August and we are finally towards the end of the summer – days filled with the sun, beach, fireworks, cold drinks, ice cream and watermelon! We all have our favorite ways to get through the blazing heat and to stay cool and comfortable. We are lucky to have these “creature comforts” to help us survive these summer months! But this is also the time to think of those who are not so lucky – those creatures, big and small who depend on us for their own survival and well-being. Do you know that dogs sweat through their feet only? And that the hot concrete can heat up to 130 degrees, which can scald and burn dog’s pads right off their feet? Dogs can only cool off through water or cool ground to sit or lie on. Again, they are dependent on us to provide these most basic of “creature comforts” for them. So next time, you are relaxing on your beach chair, with a cold drink, please remember to make sure your pet has a cool spot to lie down and plenty of fresh water!
Here at Barb’s Dog Rescue, we are doing our best to provide as many dogs as possible with a relief from the extreme summer heat and from a homeless life on the street. Recently, we have had several litters of puppies come to us that were found severely dehydrated, weak and hungry. We have nursed them all slowly back to health with bottle-feeding, trips to the vet, patience, love and care. Please come visit our little rescued pups on your next trip to Rocky Point. They had a rough start but they are ready for a second chance at a wonderful home and happy life.
Cock a pooWe have rescued hundreds of dogs this year already and we have been able to adopt out many of these pups so that they are able to live the life they deserve. We are fortunate to be working with some great partner rescues in Phoenix, Arizona and recently even with a group in Canada. These rescue organizations have helped us place dogs and puppies in homes in the United States and beyond. We also hope that you will spread the word about Barb’s Dog Rescue to your friends and family so that when they are thinking of adopting a new member of the family, they will consider saving the life of a wonderful Mexico pup. At any given time, we have over 100 dogs and puppies up for adoption – and they would all love to meet you so we do hope you will come by!
We would not be able to help any of these dogs 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 www.barbsdogrescuerp.com. We can also coordinate donations to be transported from Phoenix to Rocky Point.
