The Gentle Barn rescues animals from severe abuse and neglect who are too old, sick, lame, or scared to be adopted into homes. We are sanctuary to horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, llamas, peacocks, emus, cats and dogs. Once rehabilitated, the animals help us give hope and inspiration to children with the same stories.
We Did It!
It's official—we've moved to our forever home in Nashville! Thank you so much for supporting, donating, fundraising and praying to get us there. We are eternally grateful for the outpouring of love that made this happen. The Gentle Barn is ready to serve Middle Tennessee at our new forever home just outside Nashville. The new location will allow us to save more animals, reach a larger community, heal more children, and open many more hearts.
But we still need your support! Now that we have purchased the property, brought the animals home, and begun our programs, we still have things that we need to do to make it a perfect sanctuary. We still have fences to build, and barns to repair and winterize. We need your help. Thank you for helping us make The Gentle Barn Nashville Dudley's perfect legacy!
