Charles2We are so excited for great weather and spring-time in Rocky Point this time of year! It is also the start of “puppy and kitten season,” a period of several months when we have a lot of babies born to the female dogs and cats in town – many of them being animals with no owners to begin with. At Barb’s Dog Rescue, we take in as many of these little ones as we possibly can hold, in order to socialize them, vaccinate them, spay/neuter and get them off the streets and away from a life of homelessness. We are a 501(c) 3 non-profit dog rescue located a few miles north of Rocky Point and we would love to have you come by to visit us and all of our puppies and dogs. The animals would love to have a few extra pets and if you bring treats or food, you are bound to get a whole lot of kisses!
We definitely all love adorable little puppies but don’t forget that there are also many wonderful young adult, middle-aged and senior dogs that are available for adoption at our rescue as well. One of our happy-ending success stories at Barb’s Dog Rescue is of a sweet young dog named Charlie – a friendly and loving Chihuahua who came to us in terrible shape. Looking like he hadn’t had a meal in days and severely dehydrated, Barb and her team at the rescue nursed the little dog back to health with specially prepared meals, a warm, safe bed and a lot of love and prayers. Charlie was recently adopted out to a family in Phoenix, Arizona where he now has 2 young kids to play with each day and all the food and treats he could ever want!
Thank you to all of you who helped out this past month when we were running extremely low on dog food. We are always in need of dry and wet dog food to keep the 100 plus dogs and puppies that are in our care well-fed and nourished. Many of them come in extremely thin and emaciated having led a life of scavenging for scraps in the street and trash all their lives. It can take weeks, and sometimes months, to get them to the point that their ribs are no longer showing. So you can imagine how much food that is for just one animal! Anytime you are down here in our beautiful city of Rocky Point and can bring by a bag of food or 2, it would definitely be put to good use!
We would not be able to help any of these dogs without your support and all donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Donations can either be dropped off at the rescue, mailed to P.O. Box 116, Lukeville 85341 or sent online at We can also coordinate donations to be transported from Phoenix or Tucson to Rocky Point.
