Barb-01Fall is finally here! Welcome back to all of our fall visitors – we will have beautiful weather for you here for your vacation and we look forward to everyone coming back. Definitely come by the rescue to see the changes that have been occurring here. We have new dog runs to keep different litters of puppies separated from each other for health reasons, and distinctive dog houses and areas for some of the bigger dogs that might need some extra socialization before they are ready for adoption. We always have our main area of close to 60 to 70 dogs that are ready for adoption so please come by anytime to meet them.
Every day we adjust and learn better processes on how to help some of the sick or injured animals that come to us either from the City or from owner surrenders or strays. Recently we have had a couple of partially blind dogs that we have helped get adopted out to special people who understand their disability. All of our dogs and puppies go through an intake procedure of immediate vaccinations, de-worming, checks of their skin condition, dehydration and malnutrition status as well as eventually getting spayed/neutered to discontinue the cycle of the pet overpopulation problem.
We had several happy endings to report including quite a few dogs adopted. A little terrier pup went home with a family who could not resist his adorable demeanor and big brown eyes! When you stop in at Barb’s, you are guaranteed to fall in love – if you are ready to add a family member, we can make that happen and if not, we would definitely love you to visit. Each new set of people that these animals come across that are kind to them is a victory towards getting them socialized and adopted! So please feel free to stop by for any reason and for 5 minutes or 10 minutes or however long you have.
We thank all of you that came by with plastic water pools to make the heat a bit more bearable for the puppies and dogs during outside play-time. They loved jumping in and out of the water and just sitting and soaking in it. All of the donations made to Barb’s Dog Rescue are tax-deductible, even items like food or water pools or physical items. Also we are still and always running low on puppy food so any dry or canned puppy food that you might be able to bring to us would be put to great use.
We would not be able to help any dogs or puppies 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 or Tucson to Rocky Point.
