It is with great sadness that Renee’s Rescues and Pit Bull Pride of Delaware announces the loss of Barnaby. In a brief period, Barnaby touched the hearts of animal lovers across the map.

“If love alone could have saved you, you would have lived forever.”

In loving memory of Barnaby.

We are partnering with another Delaware non-profit, Pit Bull Pride of Delaware who is currently on an intake hiatus. This dog, now named Barnaby, came to an emergency vet the other night by his owner with wounds from a dog fight. Upon examination, the animal also exhibits old scarring. He is being surrendered to Renee’s Rescues. In order to save his life, he needs to have both ears removed, in addition to both eardrums. He has open infected wounds all over his body and will need several days of emergency care.  He is going to be an ICU patient for at least a week so we have increased his fundraising goal. We will post all paid invoices to ensure transparency. We were with him at the emergency vet last night. We are praying he makes it.
