Are you looking for your new BEST FRIEND?

Browse through our pack of 'Temporary Barkers' to find a totally loving, grateful and deserving new member of your family! We rescue our adoptable dogs from Southern California shelters, humane societies and sometimes even off the streets to save them from the risk of euthanasia and/or abandonment. Now each of them is waiting for their permanent home and a family to love. Could that be you?
TBL offers both day care and overnight boarding for your canine companions. With indoor/outdoor play yards, puppy runs, individual sleeping kennels and a TLC room for those with special needs, your furry friend is bound to feel like a TOP DOG!

It takes a team to care for our many recruits and we need your help! We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities - from fostering a dog, chaperoning on our four-legged field trips, helping with puppy care, to assisting with our events, and even fur-less tasks like data entry.

The Barking Lot isn't alone on its quest to help abandoned dogs in need. We partner with some great companies and together, we provide hope and homes for many otherwise forgotten dogs. Please help us out by taking a drive over to our "Additional Barking" (sponsors).

The list of items that the Tempoary Barkers need is never ending! So we’ve created an ongoing “Wish List” on of the items and supplies that keep us going. From a $5 dog toy to storage bins and tools, each and every item makes a difference to us! We gladly accept gently used towels, blankets & toys.
