Matt Raney of HOMESTEAD RESCUE recently welcomed a daughter to the world! On August 21, 2021, Matt and his wife Katie welcomed a healthy baby girl weighing 6 pounds 9 ounces. The happy parents already have a son, Indy, who couldn't be happier about becoming a big brother.

"Indy has been excited to be a big brother long before we had Ruby in our lives! He calls her “Little Sister” and helps and cares for a Ruby really well," says Matt.

When asked why they chose the name Ruby, Matt said, "Ruby is a beautiful name that we both liked, it also is a place in Alaska on the Yukon river with less than 200 people. Katie’s Dad spent a lot of time working in and around the town of Ruby, and always spoke fondly of it."
