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.

We LOVE updates. This one is precious.

“A year ago today we adopted Rody Rhodes! He was rescued from the streets of Mexico. He looked so sad and scared in the photos from the adoption group, Barb’s Dog Rescue. He’s definitely a happy boy now!!

That same day we got word that our Maggie was born! I wasn’t sure I wanted two new dogs at the same time, but now I can’t imagine them without each other.

These pups definitely have my heart.

Happy Gotcha Day, Rody! And Happy Birthday, Mags!"

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.
