You should get rid of this page. Ellie Laks at The Gentle Barn never rescued the 60 cows. The 60 cows needing rescue never even existed. They raised $200,000 for their rescue and spent the money on other things. Currently Ellie Laks and her husband are under investigation by the Dept of Justice, Attorney General and IRS for donor fraud. They beg for donations to raise certain animals they are not rescuing. Anyone who dares speak the truth is kicked out as a volunteer and threatened. Here are some lawsuits and investigation information.

Hoping that you have been able to contact NASCAR driver Ryan Newman and his wife, Krissie, who are working on opening the Rescue Ranch in Statesville, North Carolina this summer. Y'all should compare notes on fund-raising, celebrity support, etc. Check them out at or at the Newman Foundation. Great minds think alike!
