Let me start off by saying that I don’t apologize for the length of this; it’s worth all of my words and then some...

I’ve been working at The Gentle Barn, and The Healing Center, for almost 2 years now. I’m a psychology major that’s working toward obtaining my doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology…

A Mission To Love & Learn

                           

This week we had an amazing group of children from the Los Angeles Mission, made possible by Sun Chlorella. Like our animals, these kids have gone through some terrible times and have had to grow up too fast. They came out to the barn to hug cows, cuddle turkeys, give tummy rubs to the pigs,…

Remembering Buddha

                     

It is impossible to celebrate The Gentle Barn’s 15th Anniversary without talking about Buddha. Buddha was The Gentle Barn’s very first cow. She was also the same age as The Gentle Barn, so she would have been 15 years old now. Buddha was the wisest animal we have ever met and it was very common…

We Have Come A Long Way!

                                               

The Gentle Barn was my dream since I was seven-years old. Animals were always my best friends and confidantes when I was a small child and when I grew up I wanted to have a place to heal animals and love them as they have always healed and loved me. I started The Gentle Barn…

Faith

                          

Last week, I received three different emails from three different people asking if we could help save two beautiful senior labs left at the pound because their person was moving and didn’t want to take them with him. My fingers scrolled down to see the attached pictures as my brain screamed,…

What You Might Not Know About Chickens

                                                                               

                           

You would think that the most costly rescued…

Humble

                               

I hosted a group of teenage foster kids at the barn this week. They were pretty shut down and uninterested at first, as most teens are that come to the Gentle Barn. I asked them to have a seat at the picnic tables in the shade and everyone…

Jesse is a Hero

                                       

In January 2008, we rescued over 200 dogs from a hoarder that were left for dead in a never-ending sea of cages. Many of them were either injured or sick. We had 24 puppies who had Parvo and upon examining the weakest one, the vet said that we should just put all of…
