Little One - Phase Three

Since we got her, Little One has overcome so much. When we met her, she was so scared of everything and everyone. She would tremble at the sound of my husband’s voice or if anyone came near. She would run and hide if she heard noises outside the house and she was terrified of our other dogs. Little…

Saving a Soul

This week we had a little dog left on our property in the middle of the night. When we found her in the morning, she was trembling so hard I thought she would fall over. We brought her into our house and it took two hours to get her out of the…

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…

Happily Ever After in Ohio

His stitches are mending and he is even starting to smile again. We are doing everything in our power to find his family, but if we are not able to by next week we will be putting…

What wouldn't you give to save a life?

The Gentle Barn received a phone call about a pug who was attacked by a coyote, was lying in a horse pasture and was still alive, but barely. Jay and Ellie rushed over there and found the little guy lying on the ground with a huge gash in his back and wounds on his neck, near his jugular. Judging…

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…

Spirit’s Work

When we first saw Benjamin lying on the side of the road at our fence in the hot sun, he was extremely lethargic, severely dehydrated, and would not stand or look at us. At first, we thought he had neurological problems caused by distemper, but at the same time he smelled…
