Meet Aretha

Aretha was rescued from being eaten. She was so frightened when we brought her home to The Gentle Barn, sure that we would fulfill her old owners intentions. We keep telling her that she will get to live here with us for the rest of her life and once she trusts us we will brush her gently, scratch her back, hug her softly and love her till the end of time. Once her broken spirit is healed, she will get to heal the broken spirits of the children we host and inspire them to shine.
