Looking for a Happy Ending

Perhaps it was a coincidence. Maybe it was luck. It might even have been fate, but something    

put a caring person in the right place at just the right time. One of our newest residents at the Rescue needed what we could offer at a most important time. It was evident right away she was in labor and desperately needed a safe place to deliver. By the next morning we had an additional 10 puppies to care for. In less than 12 hours this sweet mama went from alone, scared and hungry to knowing she and her new brood were indeed safe.

This is all too often the fate of unwanted dog births in our city where unneutered animals roam the streets at will. Fortunately for these new residents, they will never be hungry, thirsty and alone again. In about three months all will be ready for adoption. By then each will have been spayed or neutered and received all vaccinations and paperwork necessary to cross the border.  Until then, Barb and her staff will provide the consistent and loving care they need to grow strong and healthy. Check Barb’s Facebook page for the latest information on these and some of the other dogs in Barb’s care.

As you can imagine, this is a task that comes at a cost. Utilities, staff salaries, food, water, medicine and vet bills add up quickly. The needs seem endless when you are caring for hundreds of dogs. It is a Herculean effort that requires Herculean support. If you can help in any way, now is the time.

Returning to the U.S.?

On your way back to destinations in Arizona? If so, would you be willing to transport one or two of our residents to our partner Halo Animal Rescue in Phoenix or to families waiting to adopt in various cities? Every adoption from Barb’s is critical as it opens much needed space for other dogs in need our care.

And finally…
