Check Out The Premiere Of Gentle Barn’s Brand-New Reality Series

The Gentle Barn enters its 20th Year of saving abused and neglected farm animals and providing them with sanctuary for rehabilitation and healing.

With three locations and more than 200 animals to care for, THE GENTLE BARN has launched its first-ever reality series highlighting a farm animal sanctuary and rescue.

About The Gentle Barn Sanctuary:

The Gentle Barn was founded by Ellie Laks in 1999; it was a dream of hers ever since she was a little girl. Animals were always very healing and nurturing to her as she faced the challenges of growing up, finding herself, fitting in and feeling understood. She majored in special education and psychology, and with her special love of animals and children, The Gentle Barn was a perfect way of putting all of her talents and passions into one.

In 2002 Jay Weiner joined The Gentle Barn as a volunteer, but fell in love with the sanctuary, and the two joined forces to heal even more children and animals together. Like Ellie, Jay also turned to animals for the support, love and nurturing he needed as a child.

The Gentle Barn started on a half-acre property in the middle of the San Fernando Valley in California. Ellie and Jay moved The Gentle Barn to a six-acre paradise in Santa Clarita in 2003. The property is complete with large horse and cow pastures, a red and white barnyard for the smaller animals, an organic vegetable garden, lots of shade trees, and a panoramic view of gorgeous mountains. Their over one hundred and seventy rescued animals are safe and happy at The Gentle Barn, and there is plenty of room to welcome their visitors and the children they host.

The Gentle Barn has a second location in Nashville, Tennessee, and a third in St. Louis, Missouri. It is their goal to open Gentle Barns in every state so that everyone in America can hug cows, cuddle turkeys, give pigs tummy rubs, and look into the eyes of these animals and know for certain that we are all the same, and deserving of the same rights, respect, and freedom.

Since its inception, The Gentle Barn has saved thousands of animals and has been host to over 500,000 people.

Check out The Gentle Barn’s brand-new series from the perspective of Co-Founders, Ellie and Jay. We’re sure you’ll enjoy it!
