The Gentle Barn - Tennessee

Visit Us on Saturday!

Come visit the second Gentle Barn, located in Knoxville, Tennessee, home to Dudley, Worthy, Indie and Chris!

You will get to meet Dudley, saved from slaughter with a missing foot. He is now happy and healthy and has a brand new prosthetic foot. He loves treats and scratches on his back.

You will get to meet Worthy, who was born with a deformed leg (see video below). After months in the hospital she is now happy and healthy with a straight leg. You will also get to meet Worthy's mom, Indie and brother, Chris who will stay together at The Gentle Barn for the rest of their lives.

You will get to watch Gentle Barn rescue videos and shop at our gift store.

The Gentle Barn will be rescuing more animals in Tennessee, so who knows who else you will get to meet?

Come fall in love!

Jackie's Fund

A few years ago at The Gentle Barn, one of our office assistants took a call from a mother and daughter who had nowhere to go for Thanksgiving and couldn't afford to come to our Gentle Thanksgiving event. Before we learned about it, Jackie had paid out of her own pocket to help this family come to the event. Jackie didn't say anything about it to anyone and it would have gone unnoticed, had the woman not said something to us later at the event.

Jackie's generosity is the spirit of The Gentle Barn and what we are all reaching for here. So in Jackie's name we have decided to start a fund, to help pay for families to come share in the unconditional love and hope at The Gentle Barn, when they cannot afford to come. Please donate towards this fund and allow others the opportunity to experience the magic of The Gentle Barn who cannot afford it, so we can continue Jackie's legacy to help people come celebrate love and life with us!
