Puppies on Board
A van driving down the highway seems like a simple thing, but for Barb and the dogs in her care, it provides a link to a whole new world. With the help of our benefactors and the matching fund donations, we were able to purchase this much needed, used van. It is reliable, provides more space, and the working rear air conditioner will make the ride to the border more comfortable for the dogs. Inside the van on this day are 35 dogs headed north to an awaiting shelter in the States. Barb’s has been operating at full capacity for over a year, and the weekly transport of dogs to our partnering shelters is critical to our ability to provide space for new arrivals.
It’s spring, and more than flowers are in bloom. We have a puppy boom. At any given time in these spring months, we will have fifty or more puppies in our nursery. They have no idea they are beginning their journey to a life of happiness and never being alone, hungry, or thirsty again. Weekly, 30 or more of these fur-babies reach five months old. They will have been neutered or spayed, had all their shots, and be eligible for adoption. All this is at no cost to you, but donations are always welcomed and gratefully accepted. Remember, Barb’s is a 501 C-3 organization, and all donations are tax-deductible in the U.S.
Beautiful, loving and gentle, Lacey came to us from the streets of Mexicali. She is about two years old and one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. If you love big dogs, this 58-pound fur-baby is your girl! We receive many dogs, but few are as special as Lacey.
Quality dog food is still difficult to find locally, and we are restricted, just like you, on the amount of dog food (50 lbs) we can transport weekly on our border runs. We currently are in need of Kirkland’s Adult and Puppy kibble, Purina Pedigree Adult and Puppy kibble, as well as cans of Purina Pedigree Puppy chicken or containers of Little Caesar’s chicken.
Additionally, we are limited on the number of dogs we can transport weekly to our partnering shelters. Consequently, we have many dogs that have been adopted and are simply waiting for transportation to their new home in Arizona. If you can help us transport a dog to his/her new owners, please stop by the Rescue daily between 10 and 2 for more information.
We are forever indebted to our supporters for enabling us to be able to take-in these dogs. Whether you have held a fundraiser, volunteered, adopted, fostered, transported puppies to forever homes in the states, made a donation, picked up supplies at the WhyNot store, listed Barb’s Dog Rescue as your philanthropy of choice on Amazon Smile, shared a post or told someone about the rescue, we thank you. It’s because of you that “Rescue Never Stops!”
