We Did It!

Worthy, Indie and Chris are now in a lush, green pasture together, reunited at long last. Worthy has a straight leg, they are all a great weight, socialized and healthy; a very happy ending to a long and trying story. But, in a w

Biscuit

Exactly 6 years ago Jay and I took our family to a pumpkin patch. We didn’t know there were animals there, we just went to enjoy the music, food and pumpkins. While there we discovered a baby pig in a cage who looked very lonely and bored, so of course we spent the day feeding him and giving…

Never Give Up

This week Chloe came to visit us and we were so excited to see her. When we rescued her from the pound, Chloe had head trauma and neurological damage. Two different vets wanted to put her down and said she would never walk again. We took her home to The Gentle Barn instead and gave her Sun Chlorella Algae Superfood…

Charlie

Most of you know that Charlie and Lacey lived in a backyard for 14 years until they were incontinent and could no longer walk and were then sent to the pound to be put to sleep. With therapy and support, Charlie and Lacey can now walk and are not incontinent anymore. Charlie has become a playful young pup! He…

Happy Endings

Milo was given to a family as a gift. Sadly they didn't want him so they tossed him into the backyard where he stayed by himself for 9 years. Recently the couple got divorced and neither of them would take him, so they were going to bring him to the pound to be put to sleep but we intervened and brought him to…

A Very Happy Ending

Tux was abandoned at a vet’s office when he was only 2 years old. Trying to be kind, the vets kept him as a hospital mascot. He is now 18 years old and is in kidney failure. Wanting to find him a home of his own before he left this world, another rescue contacted us in the hopes we would help them. We posted Tux on…

Thankful To Be Alive

Every year The Gentle Barn rescues two turkeys from the Thanksgiving table. This week Jay headed out with Chelsea, a teenage supporter of The Gentle Barn, and her mother, Kim, to save two for this year. Chelsea became a vegan animal supporter at an early age. Now 15, this is her second year helping rescue…

Dolly Made A Friend

Dolly was raised for 15 years with little interaction from humans and no association with other cows. When she first came home to The Gentle Barn she ate, slept and hung out generally by herself. Slowly over the last few weeks she has been getting closer and closer to the other cows and even sunbathed with the…

Charlie and Lacey

Today Charlie and Lacey went to the vet to get their teeth cleaned and have their weekly therapy of massage therapy and acupuncture. When we saved them from being euthanized at the age of 14 from the shelter, they were incontinent and could barely walk. Now they are fully healed and walking strong! Thanks for…

Chris

Chris was taken away from an abusive situation in South Carolina along with Worthy and Indie. The #GentleBarn got Worthy and Indie checked out…
