I have been a sponsor to a Gentle Barn animal for almost 3 years and have given a sponsorship as a Christmas gift to my most cherished sister. I SO wish there were a Gentle barn near me (Minnesota) so I, too, could hug, comfort and love abused animals back to health and the life they deserve. i truly do not know how an organization can be so committed to animals and fellow-sentient-beings that they give them homes until they pass into the next world. I've been a long-time volunteer at a local so-called Humane society - and have walked, played with and, yes, hugged some wonderful dogs - some got adopted and some (a crime in my mind) got sent back to where they came from. When two local "humane" socities tried to combine operations a few years ago, it brought out the same hateful, vitriolic words and actions that some of the posters have written here. When I heard that the director of the combined organization had a salary of $160,000 I quit the organization immediately. Hoow many homeless animals could this ghastly sum have helped find forever homes instead of giving them the "blue" cocktail. Someday my sister and I WILL have the joy of visiting the Gentle Barn and hug each and every animal they will let us hug. Please stop slandering this organization, which showers so many souls with love.
