Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone

Sunshine was rescued from a pet store where she and her 29 siblings were crammed in a dark, dirty, crowded cage. After many complaints they released the birds to us.

Spotlight Sponsor of the Month

A message from Catie Wiggy, Vice President of Marketing for MyChelle Dermaceuticals and CRYSTAL:

It's unfortunate that animal testing is still such a problem in the beauty industry and personal care products. Throughout September, MyCHELLE and Crystal are proudly running cruelty-free campaigns featuring our sponsorship with The Gentle Barn to help spread awareness on animal testing. We believe in giving back to the people and places who need it the most and helping all find that bigger purpose in life that motivates every one of us to keep getting up, showing up, and making a difference whenever we can. We are proud to partner with like-minded, grass-roots organizations like The Gentle Barn, who are in the trenches, working hard to innovate, problem-solve, inspire, and uplift each other every single day. Are you ready to join us?
