Anyone who has ever loved and cared for an animal knows that they have so much to teach people and that the immeasurable bond created between people and animals can be life-changing. The Gentle Barn Animal Sanctuary in Santa Clarita, CA enriches this bond by offering comprehensive and often alternative treatments (like acupuncture!) for its 170 rescue animals — and by providing programs that benefit children from the inner-city, living in foster homes, or with special needs. Founded by Ellie Laks, whose own experiences with animals helped her throughout her childhood and inspired her career path as an adult, The Gentle Barn has seen over 400,000 visitors in its fifteen year history and has served as the home for hundreds of animals who have been deemed otherwise unadoptable.
