The Gentle Barn is currently rescuing ten dogs from a dilapidated shelter in Ohio -- and they need your help! The dogs were supposed to be euthanized when the shelter was shut down, but the wonderful people at The Gentle Barn have stepped in to save them. They're bringing the dogs back to health and are looking for new homes for them in the Ohio area. If they can't find homes, they'll bring the dogs here to Southern California.

These dogs need your help, and I hope you'll pitch in. You can either donate to their cause, or if you live in Ohio, adopt one of the dogs. Find out more on their website.

I can't find how to locate the dogs that were rescued in Ohio. Their pictures are not showing and I can't find any information about them. Also I thought there was a game called Gentle Barn that by playing would help the organization. Where do I find that game? Thanks and thank you Ellen. I have four dogs two cats, ducks and geese and a parrot but would be willing to take in more.

Dear Ellen and Portia
We also run a farm animal rescue. We went to the local farm animal auction and it broke my heart how these beautiful innocent animals are just thrown away! soo sad. We take forgotten, abused or neglected or animals that the owners cir***stances have changed so they can no longer care for their animals. we bring them into our loving farm, love them, rehabilitated them then find loving forever homes for them.

we are self funded and do it all for the love of our animals. At any given time we have approximately 50-70+ animals. My husband tells everyone that he is a full time farmer and a part time police officer.. ha.. im off with PTSD from my service as a forensic specialist. The farm is my therapy.

We would LOVE for you to come visit and maybe help with some fund raising??

I watch you everyday! You make me smile so thank you!! Keep doing what you do. You are an angel.
