The Gentle Barn Foundation is home to 170 animals rescued from abuse.

The Gentle Barn is host to abused children, kids recovering from substance abuse, kids on probation, foster kids, and children and adults with mental, emotional, and physical challenges.

  • Really great place to visit with your family and friends. A great organization to help out by your visit. Great to get up close and personal with animals, learn a bit about then and what they go through on a day to day. We have visited here a couple of times and always really enjoyed our visit. Parking is easy and the staff is friendly, helpful and informative.
