My Gentle Barn
Creating A Sanctuary Where Animals Heal and Children Learn to HopeBook - 2014
"Ellie Laks started The Gentle Barn after adopting a sick goat from a run-down petting zoo in 1999. Some two hundred animals later (including chickens, horses, pigs, cows, rabbits, emus, and more), her shelter brings together a volunteer staff of community members and at-risk teens to rehabilitate abandoned and/or abused animals. The caregivers learn a new language of healing that works wonders on the humans as well. The story of how the Barn came to be what it is today, and Ellie's own journey. Filled with heartwarming animal stories and inspiring recoveries"--Provided by publisher.
