About Barney’s Friends

Barney’s Friends is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit PRIVATE foundation. All grants go 100% to animal support.

Barney’s Friends was established in 2012 by Robert A. Mecca and Barbara J. Mecca, as a way to give back to the community in honor of their ‘best friend’ Barney, a Whippet.

The Mecca family has also been been blessed with past fond memories of loving dogs who shared their lives with us.

Each had their own personality of fun antics and love.

Bob and Barbara have a love of animals and wanted to demonstrate ways to provide support for issues impacting domestic animal welfare, preservation, and protection.
