We know our Sidewalk Dog community is as committed to helping dogs in need as we are, but not every community has the resources to care for the animals in their area.
That’s one of the reasons rescue groups are so important — and we want to introduce you to a paw-ticularly special, small rescue in Puerto Penasco, Mexico.
Barb’s Dog Rescue, founded in 2001 by Barb Mumaugh, takes in dogs from off the streets and provides them with food, shelter, and vetting. These dogs are often in desperate need of care — whether injured, sick, or caring for a litter of puppies — and receive not only medical attention and other basic needs, but socialization and love, too.
Enter to Win a Mexico Getaway!
To help raise awareness of the grrr-eat work Barb’s Dog Rescue does for street dogs in Mexico, generous supporters of Barb’s Dog Rescue are giving away two airline tickets and a three-night stay at this drool-worthy rental home on the Sea of Cortez.*
What’s more, the winner will also get to meet Barb’s lovable fur babies in-person on a tour of Barb’s Dog Rescue. And if you happen to fall in love with one of the pups while you’re there, Barb’s Dog Rescue can set you up with the paperwork needed to adopt your new best friend and bring them home!
To enter, all you need to do is fill out the short form below. Enter between now and July 23, 2018. The randomly selected winner will be notified shortly thereafter!
More Ways to Support Barb’s Dog Rescue
With a very low number of adopters in the Puerto Penasco area, Barb’s Dog Rescue partners with rescues in Arizona to find the pups in their care (often around 200 at any given time!) the loving forever homes they deserve. And if a couch-potato life just isn’t for them, Barb’s shelter serves as a permanent sanctuary. Last year alone, Barb’s Dog Rescue helped over 1,000 dogs on a Chihuahua-sized budget, and they expect that number to grow this year.
Interested in helping Barb and her team continue to serve these special doggos? Barb’s Dog Rescue is in need of donations, adopters, and volunteers. You can also help spread the woof by sharing this article and contest details with friends, family, neighbors, the mailman, etc.
