GENTLE BARN FOUNDATION
February 22, 2013

I started as a volunteer five years ago and have seen so many wonderful and magical things happen at the Gentle Barn.
The Gentle Barn is not only here to rescue and save hundreds of animals from likely death and abuse but also to teach children,!some learning disabled some physically disabled and some with no disabilities about violence prevention.
I have seen adults with disabilities go through here and leave with a smile from ear to ear.
I have helped raise 50 plus animals saving them from severe neglect and abuse. They are now strong and healthy and very happy to spend their lives here.
This is an amazing organization .
It's really sad that some of the past employees and volunteers who didn't see the big picture and were ultimately here for them selves trying to fill a void in their lives have stooped to such childish behavior and leave nasty and FALSE comments here.
Well you can't please all people but we shure do please all our animals!

As for living at the gentle barn, I am now currently employed by the gentle barn and as part of my pay am able to live on the premises so the animals are under constant supervision. Many of the animals need 24 hour care and that's why I'm here.
The coward "truthwillbeknown" who posted I must leave positive feedback is just that. You lash out at people for their own feelings and how dare you post anything different. You cower behind a false name and slander people for their views because they are not the same as yours.
Perhaps this behavior is why you were asked to leave?
Your statements are a false and you should just go on with your life and leave us to do our job and speak freely about what we love.

GENTLE BARN FOUNDATION

I am a different person now because of The Gentle Barn. For three years I have volunteered for the Gentle Barn and have seen first hand the MIRACLES they perform. I helped a terminally ill man hold a chicken which immediately produced a child like smile on his face a week before he passed on. I witnessed a troubled youth describe himself as dirty only to leave calling himself brave. I witnessed a wheelchair bound child get his first kiss from a horse, I have helped them with animals of neglect and abuse recover and be loved again. I've seen horribly sick animals get 24/7 hands on care and love, along with western and eastern medicine. I have seen numerous people give up meat and become Vegan saving tens of thousands of animals lives because of Ellie and Jay and the Gentle Barn. This last christmas The Gentle Barn and LAPD's P.A.L. program gave out over 200 "Cars 2 "toys to inner city under privileged kids. All this in three years. I look forward to volunteering 10 more years! So yes I am a very different person now, for the better. I highly recommend a visit to the Gentle Barn to see for yourself.
