If you fell in love with Katinka based on her pics alone, we wouldn’t blame you – Katinka is seriously cute! This little gal arrived at The Barking Lot in August, 2016 with a small group of dogs from Mexico. Our rescue partners in Mexico scooped Katinka up from the pound on the day she was supposed to be euthanized (she was only 3 months old at the time). At the time of her rescue, Katinka was seriously malnourished and neglected, so she went into a foster home in Mexico for some TLC. Katinka’s foster mom reports that Katinka is the sweetest, most loving dog, and she would have kept her if she had room in her home. Now, at 9 months old, Katinka is at TBL and ready for her forever home! This Cairn Terrier/Yorkie mix is seriously cute, and mostly fully-grown at 13 pounds. Katinka has a beautiful, midnight black, wiry coat that will require some semi-regular grooming to keep it tangle free. While Katinka was a little shy when she first arrived at TBL, that shy demeanor has melted away and Katinka has become an outgoing, spunky, playful little dog while under our case. She loves to run around the play yard with her pals, and you will often find her playing with her doggie roommates. Katinka is also great with people and happy to snuggle up in someone’s arms while doling out lots of kisses. Katinka walks pretty well on leash and does great on car rides. Her small size makes her the perfect portable companion for someone who wants a dog they can take everywhere. Katinka would make an amazing addition to any home, so submit an app today and scoop her up before someone else does!

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.
