The name Kitara comes from the word Kithara, an ancient Greek musical instrument resembling the lyre or modern day guitar. Much as the Kithara was played to accompany dances and epic recitations, Kitara the pup was made to accompany you on life’s many epic adventures! Kitara is the embodiment of a faithful sidekick, and her favorite pastime is following her favorite people around like a happy little shadow. Kitara is 6 and a half years old (as of 2017) and weighs roughly 50 pounds. She is truly one of the mellowest and easygoing girls you will meet. She knows how to go to the bathroom outside, and walks very well on a leash. When she’s not enjoying daily walks with volunteers, or following her favorite humans around, Kitara likes to lay back and people-watch. This beautiful lady has a short and easy-to-care-for coat, a reassuring smile, and lovely brown eyes. If you are looking for a sweet, friendly, and laidback gal, then Kitara is definitely worth a visit!

About The Barking Lot

About Our Rescue Group...

The seed for The Barking Lot was planted a few years back when I took in my first foster dog, Patti Cake, in hopes of making a bigger impact by helping my favorite furry friends. Before I knew it, I was put on some rescue email list and received an email stating, "This dog to be put down on Tuesday at 3pm". I was utterly horrified and jumped into action figuring out how I could save her. Well, I did and I'm glad to report Raspberry (my nephew named her!) is living happily in Encinitas to this day! After getting her adopted, I thought, "That wasn't so tough." And so it goes...over 500 dogs adopted into loving home and 2 1/2 years later...we are now creating The Barking Lot.

As well as being wonderful companions, dogs are amazing teachers and we've learned so much from them...first and foremost that they all deserve a chance at a better life and their behavior will balance beautifully if their needs are meet and good leadership is applied. These pups will be the most grateful creatures you've encountered. We rescue our furry friends from area shelters, humane societies and Mexico as they are at risk of being euthanized and/or abandoned.

We are a small organization with a handful of key volunteers and we are just getting started as a 501c3 non-profit, so we're looking for more volunteers to add to the fun and reward! We need both people and donations to help our furry friends, so we'd be grateful for either. Please contact

Thanks for choosing rescue,
Stacy, The Barking Lot crew and all the rescued recruits!

P.S. Patti Cake, my original foster dog, is among The Barking Lot residents as I couldn't possibly have given her up & I'm fortunate to call her mine! Yes, I'm proud to report I was a failed foster my first go around!!

Our Adoption Process...

Our goal to find the right match for each pooch based on lifestyle, energy level, exercise regime, environment and living situation. To ensure we find a great match for each pup, the process entails an adoption application, a play date with your furry friend, a home check of the potential adopter and an adoption contract.

The adoption fees include spay/neuter, up-to-date shots, rabies vaccination, microchip & microchip registration, de-worming and the benefit of getting a pooch who has been living in a stable and loving environment.
