Inspiring Kindness and Compassion towards Animals, Our Planet, and Each Other
Inspiring Kindness and Compassion towards Animals, Our Planet, and Each Other

With your support, we work each day to create a gentler world by rescuing animals, giving them rehabilitation and sanctuary at The Gentle Barn, and then hosting people looking for hope, and opening people’s hearts to the intelligence, affection, and magic of animals.

Name The Gentle Barn's New Baby Turkey

Exciting News! We have a new arrival at The Gentle Barn, A NEW BABY TURKEY!

She's absolutely adorable and we want YOU to help us name her! For every $25 bale of hay you donate, you'll get to suggest a name for our newest addition! The more bales of hay you purchase, the more times your suggested name will be entered into the drawing.

Join The Legacy Giving Society

To offer a new and meaningful way to give that will provide security for The Gentle Barn in the years to come, we’re launching a Legacy Society. It’s for people like you, who care deeply and want to ensure that The Gentle Barn is funded in perpetuity.
