Assemblyman Moooved By Gentle Barns Efforts

gentlebarn16Assemblyman Cameron Smyth presented Gentle Barn Resolution in recognition of their efforts to rescue animals as well as their contributions to the community.

Smyth and his staff toured the Canyon Country facility, fed the animals, and posed for pictures Friday morning.

“I first became aware of the Gentle Barn as a parent.  I came here for my sons fourth birthday party and really thought it was an amazing place,” said Smyth.  “Hearing their mission really inspired me.”

According to Smyth’s staff only 20-30 of these honors are given out a year.

The barn is operated by Jay Weiner and Ellie Laks, and was founded in 1999 as a safe haven and place of recovery for abused farm animals.

Gentle Barns current project is to save 60 dairy cows from slaughter after the farm they were housed in closed down.

“The plight to save 60 dairy cows speaks to the plight of the Animal Protection Caucus,” said Smyth.

As the co-founder of the Animal Protection Caucus, Smyth is working with Senate and Assembly members from both sides of the aisle to tailor public policy to balance the humane treatment of animals and the agricultural industry.

According to Weiner, Smyth has helped with a number of the processes to move the cows from their current location to Gentle Barns pasture.gentlebarn9

“Cameron has been absolutely supportive in our efforts in the growth and protection of the animals we have here, and on the new property were working on to bring in our dairy cows,” said Weiner.

The Gentle Barn also works with special needs groups and at-risk youth groups like Phoenix house.  The two groups partner together to help the kids learn about the animals and also acts as a therapeutic session for many.
