Barney, here! “I love you, you love me. We (can be) a happy family! With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you, won’t you say you love me too?” The big purple dinosaur isn’t the only Barney in need of some love! Barney, a 6-year old Pit Bull mix from Del Norte Animal Shelter, is in need of some love and a home after a domestic violence dispute landed him at the shelter. Despite his rough start, he loves all people! He especially loves the youth group kids who sometimes come to visit him. They are around the age of 12, so Barney would probably do best in a home with kids of the same age. He has never been around other dogs, so it is unknown how he would interact. However, with the proper introduction, he may be open to sharing his living spaces with a female canine friend! A little more about Barney: He’s neutered, housetrained, food motivated, LOVES his ball, and would love you forever if you spent just an ounce of your time playing fetch with him! Barney is desperately searching for his forever family and cannot wait to meet them soon! Will you be the one to change his life?
Born Again Pit Bull Rescue regularly works with the wonderful volunteers at the Del Norte County Animal Control Shelter located out in rural Crescent City, CA (a small coastal town on the OR/CA border). They have a very small shelter with small indoor 3x6 kennel runs, low foot traffic, odd adoption viewing hours and it rains a lot which means the dogs can’t always come outside to play -- so we want you to see some of their really great dogs that they have up for adoption -- it's only a short 5-hour drive from Portland to adopt your new family member!
Del Norte County Animal Control is located in Crescent City, CA. They are open Monday – Friday from 8am to 5pm. They are closed Saturday and Sunday.
Address: 2650 Washington Blvd - Crescent City, CA 95531
Shelter phone: (707) 464-7235
