For these dogs in Puerto Penasco, Mexico, Barb's Dog Rescue is their only hope.

Thousands of homeless dogs roam the streets in this community.  Many are injured or caring for young litters of puppies.  
We open our doors to dogs in need and provide them with food, shelter, veterinary care, and a place to call home, for however long they need. 
We give them hope. Please join us.

Enjoy this update about Scout.


“Hello Barb Dogs Rescue!

I just wanted to send a quick update on Scout whom I adopted in July of 2020. Trying to keep her active and socialized as much as possible. We hike regularly and go camping periodically. She has been back to Puerto Penasco (last May) and we'll be going again this October - staying in a house on the beach in Playa Encanto.

She is the LOVE of my life!"

From Shelter Dog to Movie Star? It might just happen.

We think the dogs in our care have quite a story to tell, and Emmy-award winning host Thomas Baldrick agrees. He recently featured Barb's Dog Rescue in his latest creation, The Rocky Point Podcast. 

Please help Barb with her mission of saving the dogs in Puerto Peñasco. Adopt, volunteer or make a tax-deductible donation.
