Sponsoring an animal at The Gentle Barn enables us to continue saving and caring for some of the most vulnerable and neglected animals.Click Here To Learn More About Animal Sponsorship
Forgiveness was born to the dairy industry and taken away from his mom at birth so his milk could be stolen by humans. He was put into a veal crate to be processed for veal. By the time he was sent to slaughter at 8 weeks old he was too sick to stand and we were called to get him off their hands. After several months of pneumonia, high fevers, and racking coughs, Forgiveness survived. He is now over 7 feet tall and 3,000 pounds, has sweet, sad eyes that melt our hearts and bring tears to our eyes. His capacity to forgive is astounding, his capacity to love, overwhelming! Forgiveness will be our gentle giant at our California location for the rest of his life.
