A Good Month for New Beginnings

Bienvenidos, October

October has never been so welcomed. The harsh summer’s heat is behind us, and, if Labor Day weekend was any indication, our neighbors to the north are still drawn to the many wonderful things Rocky Point has to offer. October is always an important month to our economy, but even more so this year. Covid-19’s impact on the area’s economy has been significant, so we send an especially sincere thank you to all who visit our beautiful town by the sea.

Much More Than Adoptions

For those of you visiting our city for the first time, Barb’s Dog Rescue has provided shelter, food, and desperately needed health care to the abandoned and broken street dogs of Rocky Point for many years. While we found homes for over 2,000 dogs in 2019, there is so much more that we do. Local dogs almost always arrive at the Rescue having never received any medical care or much needed vaccines. Upon arrival, they must be quarantined for a period of time to avoid the spread of potential disease to the other dogs within our care. During that time, they receive medical care, vaccinations, and are scheduled to be spayed or neutered.   Many, if not most, of the abandoned dogs we receive are severely undernourished, dehydrated, or both. But all too frequently, there are those who have been purposely neglected or harmed.

Meet Harlow and Jellybean

Two-year-old Harlow was abandoned to the streets after contracting mange. Weakened by the disease and near starvation, Harlow is currently receiving medical care and the attention she needs to be healthy and adoptable. When well enough, she will receive her shots and be spayed. Harlow is an affectionate dog waiting for someone to provide her the love and care she so richly deserves.

Jellybean is an adorable pup who was abandoned after her mother died. She arrived at Barb’s literally covered in ticks. It took days of dips, baths, and painstaking tweezing to eliminate the parasites and, then, multiple rounds of antibiotics to attack the infection. Thanks to the care Barb’s provides, Jellybean is now recovering and will soon be ready for her vaccinations and spaying. Soon, this sweet pup will join others like her who excitedly await their forever homes.

Help Needed

Because of the pandemic, we are short on almost everything. We are a U.S. 501c3 organization, and all donations are tax deductible. Cash is always the most practical donation, as we can use it to purchase whatever is in shortest supply. Today, that might be water. Manana, it might be antibiotics. We urge you to visit us. Our nursery is full of puppies in need of socialization and fostering, and the Rescue is overflowing with juvenile and adult dogs waiting to find an individual or family perfectly suited to provide their permanent home.
