This weekend in St Louis, with the help of amazing volunteers, we fenced our largest pasture, cleaned out an entire barn, dug holes, poured concrete, installed 2 gates, moved 2 stalls to a different barn, cleaned 3 pastures of trash, old fences, and fallen logs, and started building our gift shop. We got so much done!

"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
