Friendly, inquisitive, happy, playful, affectionate, and quite handsome – these are the words that describe our sweet boy Staccato! We rescued Staccato and a large group of dogs from Kern County that became known as the musical group. He arrived all skin and bones, and we worked on putting more meat back on his bones with every passing day. Staccato enjoys going on walks with our volunteers and checking out his surroundings. The hound in him makes him want to sniff everything in sight and check everything out at least once, including passing two or four legged friends. Out in the yard he loves to explore every nook and cranny with his doggie friends, or run after toys we throw for him. It’s not exactly a game of fetch since he doesn’t always pick the toys up; he just enjoys the chase and exercise. Staccato absolutely loves to get scratched behind his long ears, and this sweet boy will maintain eye contact with you while resting his head on you to show you how much he enjoys getting showered with affection. We estimate him to be right around 50-55 pounds, he is and about 6 and a half years old as of January 2017. When Staccato is not out accompanying volunteers on walks, roaming the play yard or enjoying the company of people, he likes to serenade us while we do our job – he is classic Coonhound through and through!

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.
