In the Barnyard: May 18, 2017

Chico and his brothers are safe in a temporary foster home. In the meantime, we found the perfect property in St Louis for them. We put in an offer and it was accepted, but we have been given three weeks to raise the funds and show the seller that we can do this. We are off to a great start and have promises from some donors of larger contributions coming our way. Please help us succeed, open a Gentle Barn in St Louis, and bring the St Louis six home forever.

We have separated our campaigns for now, so we have the go-fund-me campaign that will cover the purchase of the property, and the website which will cover the naming of the cows, and get us set up to open. Thank you so much for all of you who are donating and sharing, we cannot do this without you!

We have chosen to work with The Gentle Barn over the years because we have been able to personally see how much love, care and dedication Ellie and Jay’s team give to their mission. I really feel like they are kindred spirits, and I am always so proud to be a part of anything they do. It is rare for people to have an opportunity to look a cow in the eyes, give it a hug and see that this is a sentient being. It is meaningful work. --Brook Harvey-Taylor
