My Story

At The Barking Lot, we’re constantly surrounded by dozens of fun, cute, and loving dogs of all shapes and sizes. Yet, ask any Barking Attendant (volunteer) to name a favorite and you’re likely to hear Rayne’s name make their short list. Why? Well, what’s not to love? This 7-year-old girl is simply an awesome dog whose heartbreaking-to-triumphant story is just as amazing. Rayne was found perched precariously on top of her doghouse in a flooded backyard during heavy rains, where her owner had left her for three weeks while he was in the hospital. Then, while boarded over the holiday season, another dog tore off a piece of her upper jowl through a kennel cage, leaving her with a permanently lopsided grin. Now, at The Barking Lot, Rayne's somewhat “unique” look serves as a constant reminder of what she’s been through. However, despite that rough patch in her journey, Rayne is one of the most loving and lovable dogs you’ll ever meet. She craves attention, and will return the favor by way of giving endless kisses. She loves to hang with people, whether in the play yard, on a hike, or chilling on the couch. She’s housebroken, awesome on a leash, and she loves the “spa treatment” of a bath, soaking up the petting and rubs as much as the suds and water. She probably wasn’t socialized much with other dogs in her youth, and lacks a few doggie communication skills, but became besties with Marcel and other male Barking Lot alumnae. She needs to be properly introduced to other dogs to ensure she's comfortable with them, but she has demonstrated potential for successful dog-to-dog interaction and she has hung out happily at dog-friendly breweries.

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.

About the Rescue GroupLearn More

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 stacy@thebarkinglot.net

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!!
