Meet our boy Pancakes! Pancakes is a Labrador Retriever/Vizsla mix and came to us in December, 2015 after being rescued from a high-kill shelter in Riverside. This handsome guy came to us extremely overweight and a little sluggish, weighing in at 90 pounds! Even if he’s a little chubby, his syrupy sweet personality is helping him make tons of new pup friends in his big play group. He and his kennelmate, Grits, have been caught playfully chasing each other around our play yard every chance they get! Volunteers gush about Pancakes’ leash manners and offer to walk him regularly, which is part of how we are helping Pancakes get back to his ideal healthy weight. We estimate that his goal weight should be around 75-80- pounds. At 3-years-old, Pancakes is a gentle giant and we think he is housebroken, given that he has not had one accident in his kennel since his arrival. His short, auburn coat will require minimal grooming and is very soft to the touch. With his mature temperament, Pancakes would love a mellow home and would be great in either a suburban or urban environment. This affectionate boy has a lot of love to give and is waiting for his forever home! If you have the forever home he is looking for, submit an app today!

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.
