MonicaBeautiful weather this spring brings smiles to many people and animal’s faces! We love our city of Rocky Point this time of year. However, it also is puppy season which means we are taking in litters of unwanted puppies on a weekly basis. Puppies are adorable and everyone loves them, of course. They are a lot of work to take care of, especially if they come in without their mother, Barb’s staff spends hours nursing and giving extra supplements to these pups. They need to be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, given meds and many other life-supporting measures, including love and attention….. and we need you to stop by to help us in the giving of the love department! There are many puppies that need cuddling!

For example, a litter of puppies came in with their mother – named Momie –and she was very scared of people and not trusting of our help. After weeks of love, care and consistency, Mom and her puppies all survived and became socialized. Mom dog is up in Phoenix right now hopefully finding her forever home and second chance at life. The puppies were all adopted out and are happy and healthy and living in their new homes with their own families. Dogs get adopted by people coming through our city and adopting or by stopping by and then telling their friends who end up adopting. We have dogs of every kind – small, large, black, white, old, young or any other combination you can think of. Dogs also get adopted by you liking our awesome Facebook page and by sharing the available dogs we have posted on there. We partner with several rescue groups in Phoenix and in Tucson that help us adopt out some of these dogs and puppies as well. If anyone wants to come by and get some pictures of our dog to send to our Facebook volunteer, we would love that!

Don’t forget Barb’s Dog Rescue is a non-profit 501c3 tax deductible organization that survives solely on your donations and your help. We always need dog food so, if you are driving through Rocky Point, stop by on your way in or out of town. Every bag helps us feed our over 150 homeless rescue dogs and puppies. Toys, leashes, bleach, treats, bedding and volunteers are always welcome and our doors are consistently open for you. We need you to help us save all these wonderful lives!

Every penny goes to helping the stray and homeless dogs – come visit and see for yourself!

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 sent online at We can also coordinate donations to be transported from Phoenix to Rocky Point.
