When I first started to volunteer at the Gentle Barn, I did it to just try it out. I originally didn't have a certain animal I wanted to work with, but after a few weeks of volunteering, I found my love for goats. I continue to volunteer for the Gentle Barn because I love the energy everyone has, and the personal experiences volunteers have with the animals. I think the most amazing thing is when the animals began to recognize me and greet me whenever they see me. It makes me feel elated that I am spending time with them, and they with me.
