The Gentle Barn

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have chosen for this post is a clip about The Gentle Barn...it is a sanctuary that houses and rehabilitates more than 100 animals that have been neglected, abused or abandoned. They have a large group of volunteers including the elderly and people with special needs who help to take care of the animals.  It is great therapy for both the volunteers and the animals.  It is amazing how love and kindness can go a long way for both people and animals!  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took on a recent walk.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.



Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.

  15. What a great idea The Gentle Barn is, we hear too many stories of animals having to be put down after being rescued.

    Lovely pictures Linda

  21. Dear Linda - for some reason the video wouldn't play on my computer - love the fact though that there are folks who care about these animals and help out. Those marigolds are absolutely beautiful...puts me in the mood for fall with those butternut colors. Have a great day.

  23. Hi Linda,

    What a beaultiful work they have there!
    I do love animals and I became a vegetarian 15 year ago, because I can't imagine myself eating a dear friend...
    I give workshops for groups of women here, but it is a non profit activity. To participate, they have only to make a donation for some NGOs that we support. This year we are helping those who rescue and rehabilitate animals.

    Have a nice weekend!

    Your photos are lovely. The yellow flowers are amazingly beautiful!
