Update 12/12: Indigo charmed her fans at our recent Walk a Dog In Need event! She did great walking on the leash, but decided to stop and roll over for some belly rubs right in the middle of the sidewalk (silly girl!) While getting some rubs, she nuzzled up into our volunteer for a little extra affection, showing off what a great lovebug she is. She would love to charm her way into your life as well!
Indigo is a spunky, playful gal who loves a good romp off leash with other dogs, attention from people, and a high-spirited life to live. Indigo is between two to three years of age, so she's in her prime. She came to us by way of the Santa Monica shelter, and she's found her favorite play mate in Bruce, another one of our temporary barkers. Indigo likes some rough and tumble play with her four-legged companions, so would do best with another dog who likes this style of play. However, she does not have to go into a home with other dogs as all she wants is an opportunity to explore, live, and learn about all the wonderful opportunities of living in a forever home.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
