Featured Video: Day 1 in Missouri

Day 1 in Missouri: This place is heaven! We got a lot done today to set up the house and office and walk the entire property to get clear on what fences we have to put in. It's going to be a lot of work, but we're off to a good start. Once we have internet and phone lines we'll post our first volunteer day. Stay tuned

"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
