Gratitude Speaks: Ellie Laks/The Gentle Barn

                                             

"I'm very excited to feature Ellie Laks on Gratitude Speaks! Ellie's the founder of The Gentle Barn, a glorious place of healing for animals and people. Located in Santa Clarita just about 45 min north of Los Angeles, CA, it's open to the public every Sunday from 10:00am-2:00pm.

The Gentle Barn is a magical place. It's a sanctuary for both animals and kids who have had traumatic experiences. It's the peaceful home to rescued animals who get to spend the rest of their beautiful lives there. And it's also a safe haven for at-risk children and teenagers who, maybe for the first time ever, get to experience that peace, love, and joy are real. The Gentle Barn truly is a giant storybook. By learning about the animals' life stories and interacting with them, the kids experience first-hand that kindness is always available. They're taught compassion and empathy for all living beings."  -Miriam Ava

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

At Katjes we believe that every life is precious and these values extend beyond our plant-based gummies. As part of our campaign featuring rescued animals, we’re honored to join hands with The Gentle Barn, to support their non-stop efforts in protecting animals. By drawing attention to their heart-warming stories, we hope to provide food for thought when we say: Kindness just tastes better.
