The Gentle Barn Foundation is home to over a hundred 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.

Through the interaction with animals, the kids learn forgiveness, courage, strength, leadership skills, trust, empathy, and kindness. The healing that takes place when the kids get together with the animals is miraculous.

  • 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.
