In November 2016, we began our partnership with the Soi Dog Foundation. With the help of our wonderful supporters and volunteers, we were able to welcome our first group of Soi Dogs who were all rescued from the meat trade in Thailand. Becky, Bingo, Hyatt, Ragnar, and Tina, aka our Flagship Five, flew in from Phuket in search of their forever homes and never looked back! Hyatt is the most outgoing one of the bunch, as she is always the quickest to greet you with a wagging tail and beg for pets. She is a beautiful 4-year-old red and white Basenji/Thai Ridgeback mix. Like the classic Basenji, Hyatt is playful, alert, curious, affectionate, and highly intelligent. She is sometimes catlike in that she likes to rub herself against your leg, lay out and sunbathe, and she even has feline-like grooming habits. Hyatt has a distinct ridge on her back with a strip of hair growing in opposite directions, compliments of her Ridgeback ancestry. Despite the horrors of her past, she is an extremely friendly and trusting girl who won’t hesitate to give you sweet kisses all over your face. Hyatt is a great size of just over 25 pounds, not too big, not too small. Spend just a few moments in her company and you will fall in love!

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.
