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. 


Each month features beautiful photos of the dogs at Barb’s Dog Rescue, taken by photographer Cheryl Nestico. The stories of the featured dogs will warm your heart, bring you joy, and inspire you.


Calendars are $25 For an 8 1/2” x 11” size, or $30 For an 11” x 14”.


Best of all, each purchase you make helps support the dogs at the shelter!


Plan ahead for the holidays! The calendar makes a great gift for the dog lovers on your list!

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.
