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!

"Because Animals is a small company with a big mission: to create nutritious pet food without ever harming any animals or the environment. We believe that factory farming has no place in pet nutrition, which is why all of Because Animals' products are made without slaughtering animals. "

"Our ultimate goal is to end the raising and slaughtering of farmed animals to feed our pets.
Until we get to that point, we are so very grateful there are sanctuaries like The Gentle Barn’s three locations to give refuge to abused, tormented, neglected and suffering animals who deserve so much more from the world."

~Dr. Shannon Falconer, CEO, Because Animals
