This February We're Helping Rescued Farmed Animals

Peppermint Patty

We love all animals, and we know you do too. And because February is the official month of love, let’s celebrate our shared affection for animals by supporting The Gentle Barn.

The Gentle Barn is a sanctuary for animals who have been rescued from lives of torment, suffering, severe abuse and neglect. For every Because Animals product you purchase this month, one dollar will be donated to this amazing charity to help provide care and love to the animals they have taken in. 

Animals such as Peppermint Patty (top of page), who was born to the egg industry where she lived in a small cage for her first two years of life laying eggs. Then she was sent to slaughter once her egg production waned, and was rescued after falling off the truck. When she was found and arrived at The Gentle Barn Tennessee she was so scared she wouldn’t even come out of her crate. 

Or Forgiveness, the cow, who was born into the dairy industry, removed from his mother at birth and put into a veal crate. At 8 weeks old he was too sick to even stand.

Or Ella the piglet who, as a tiny baby, was rescued after falling off a truck. As she was too young to be away from her mother, Ella was frightened, malnourished, scraped up and only wanted to be loved.

The Gentle Barn team worked diligently to welcome these (and so many more) animals home and make them part of their family. 

The Gentle Barn’s overall message is one of kindness for all beings. They aim to inspire all of us to reconnect our hearts with nature, to have reverance for all life and a desire to protect the planet. 

We share those sentiments. Because Animals was founded on a love of all animals and a mission to create nutritious, sustainable pet food without ever causing any harm to any creatures or the planet. 

Feel-Good Cookies and Probiotics

And so, during February, one dollar from each sale of our Superfood & Probiotic Supplements (one for dogs and one for cats) and our Noochies organic, human-grade, peanut butter dog cookies, will go to The Gentle Barn. 

Wear a Message of Loving Kindness

And, if you are in the market for a super-soft, super-cool sweatshirt that sends a message of loving kindness to the world around you, our Love All Animals sweatshirt may be what you are looking for. All proceeds from each sweatshirt sale will be donated to support the animals of the spcaLA! Click to shop the shirt.
