Rayne's story is one of the heartbreaking ones we all hope have a happy ending: she was found perched precariously on top of her dog house in a flooded backyard during heavy rains last winter 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 look. Now at The Barking Lot, Rayne's forlorn look is a constant reminder of the troubles of her past. Despite her history, she is an absolute darling with people. She wants nothing more than the kind hand of a human to show her attention, love, and caring. While in the play yard, her happiest moment is when a volunteer comes to join her where she follows around her people with an adoration that is amazing considering her past. She bathes very, very well (probably loves the pets and rubs that come with a bath!), and handles great. Having probably not been socialized with other dogs fully in her youth, she lacks a few doggie communication skills, but has found a happy friend in both Marcel and other male TBL alumnae, showing potential for dog-to-dog interaction. She needs to be properly introduced to other dogs to ensure she's comfortable with them, but she's hands down fantastic with people.

Rescue Group Info...
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 email@example.com
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!!
Please check our website for our upcoming adoption events, or fill out our application at www.thebarkinglot.net for an appointment.
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.
