John Lewis Thunderheart was born in a slaughterhouse. His mom, Love, never made it out. Because of the stress and chaos around them and his mom being so sick, John Lewis Thunderheart didn't get enough colostrum to build an immune system and came to us orphaned at a week old, fighting for his life with pneumonia.

During his recovery, to avoid the extreme summer heat, we brought him into our house to have a clean and cool environment, and be nurtured round the clock. With great veterinary care, antibiotics, anti inflammatories, nebulizer and oxygen therapy treatments, probiotics, Sun Chlorella Algae Super Food, and lots of love, he slowly recovered. He is now strong, healthy, and loves to play with his best friend, Sky the dog.

Lewis will get to live a long, happy life at The Gentle Barn and be an ambassador for all animals everywhere.
