Sweet Trumpet, affectionately dubbed Booger by the TBL volunteers, is certainly a crowd favorite! On most given days you can see this peppy little guy roaming the front office taking his job as one of the office greeters to stride. Trumpet is the last of Opahs instrument puppies, born at TBL February 2013. Shortly after joining the world, he caught a nasty infection and there was a short time when we were afraid he was not going to make it, but the little trooper fought the odds and emerged a happy, healthy, and vivacious puppy! Fast forward 4+ years, and we are boggled as to why this little cutie is still with us. Trumpet is a friendly, spunky, hearty, and fun-loving little guy. He loves other dogs of all shapes and sizes (you should watch him play with pups at least 5 times his size!), and he's a ham for human affection. Since he has been in foster all his life, this smart fella comes crate and house trained. He also has great recall and loves to run around with his canine and human companions at Fiesta Island off-leash. Trumpet weighs in at around 15 pounds, and is 4 years old as of 2017. Even though we all love Boogs, it is time for our favorite pint-sized buddy to go to his forever home!

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.
