Happily Ever After in Ohio

                     

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…

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…

Charlie and Lacey are 15 years old now

We rescued Charlie and Lacey a year ago when they were 14 years old and could not walk. We gave them superior nutrition to give them strength, Sun Chlorella to boost their immune system, and acupuncture, massage therapy, cold laser, chiropractic, and water therapy to keep them pain free and mobile. It…

Chickens

We have about 25 chickens right now and most of them are older hens who are the products of the egg industry. In the egg industry, chickens are genetically engineered to reach sexual maturity at only a few months old instead of at 2 years old as nature intended. Since they are designed to lay eggs very early…

Charlie and Lacey: One Year Later!

Charlie and Lacey were rescued a year ago this month and are doing so well! After living outdoors for 14 years, they are finally in a home where they are loved and adored.

Their therapy continues to support them and enable them to walk and be pain free. They love going for walks and adventures…

Lilly

Our pig, Lilly, was rescued many years ago from being put down at an animal shelter. She had been used as a breeder pig her whole life, where her food was thrown to her and her babies taken away from her. When she could not get pregnant anymore she was sent to the pound to be put down. She had never known…

Lacey and Charlie

As you probably know, Charlie and Lacey were rescued eight months ago from being put down at an animal shelter. They were arthritic, incontinent and old. Over the last several months, we have been giving them acupuncture, massage therapy, chiropractic, and water therapy and it has really helped them with their…

Rakki (Japanese for lucky, pronounced rocky)

Our little champion, Rakki, had to have surgery again this week because his skin was so thin and fragile after the coyote attack that his wound opened up. After an overnight stay at the hospital he is now all stitched…

Rakki (pronounced Rah-Kee) is Lucky

The pug who was found torn open by coyotes is recovering very nicely from surgery. He is in a foster home and eating and drinking like a champ. His stitches are mending and he is even starting to smile again. We are doing everything in our power to find his family, but if we are not able to by next week we will be putting…

What wouldn't you give to save a life?

The Gentle Barn received a phone call about a pug who was attacked by a coyote, was lying in a horse pasture and was still alive, but barely. Jay and Ellie rushed over there and found the little guy lying on the ground with a huge gash in his back and wounds on his neck, near his jugular. Judging…
