This woman has been following The Gentle Barn for years on Facebook and had also read my book, My Gentle Barn. She felt so connected to our organization and to the animals that live here that she decided to come all the way from Ohio on a train to visit us. She and her…

Angels Visiting Angels

                                                

     

This week, we had forty-five foster children brought in by The Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS),…

Faith

                          

Last week, I received three different emails from three different people asking if we could help save two beautiful senior labs left at the pound because their person was moving and didn’t want to take them with him. My fingers scrolled down to see the attached pictures as my brain screamed,…

About four years ago, there was a pound in Ohio that was keeping the dogs outside in the snow during the winter. The dogs were getting very sick and after a public outcry the authorities in charge decided to euthanize all the dogs…

Courage

                                 

Courage was saved from a veal crate when he was eight weeks old. He was born to the dairy industry and taken away from his mom when he was born as they both cried for each other. He was put into a veal crate, kept alone, and fed an insufficient, anemic diet.…

Thumper's Adventures

                    

Almost five years ago, we discovered a backyard butcher who was doing horrible things to animals. We started pulling animals from there (that were literally on the verge of death) and bringing them home to The Gentle Barn to save them. Meanwhile, the authorities were working on making conditions…

New Babies at The Gentle Barn

   

This month we got a desperate call from a lovely woman who has been rescuing donkeys from abuse for many decades. Sadly, she recently got ill and needed several surgeries. Because of her poor health and the operations, she could not…
