Kindness, Compassion to Animals, Each Other and our Planet.

There are people and animals at risk during these times. We’ve been working hard to made our Curious Critters available on holiday products to support our charity.

50% of profits from CURIOUStotheMAX Zazzle sales is donated to:

The Gentle Barn*

(the other 50% goes to the cost of our URL’s)

We were planning a trip to visit and then the pandemic hit.  We can’t show you the pictures we were going to take of the horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens, llamas, peacocks, emus, cats and dogs in sanctuary at The Gentle Barn

In substitute, take a look at these animals!

The Gentle Barn is on a six-acre paradise in Santa Clarita, CAThe Gentle Barn has a second location in Nashville, Tennessee, and a third in St Louis, Missouri. It is their goal to open Gentle Barns in every state so that everyone in America can hug cows, cuddle turkeys, give pigs tummy rubs, and look into the eyes of these animals and know for certain that we are all the same, and deserving of the same rights, respects, and freedoms.

Since its inception, The Gentle Barn has saved thousands of animals.  Once rehabilitated, the animals help us give hope and inspiration to children with the same stories:

Giraffe life lesson:

Very easy to succeed

Just stick your neck out

“Giraffes are the tallest land animals. A giraffe could look into a second-story window without even having to stand on its tiptoes! A giraffe’s 6-foot-long neck weighs about 600 pounds. The legs of a giraffe are also 6 feet long. The back legs look shorter than the front legs, but they are about the same length.”

“There is only one species of giraffe. The recognized subspecies include reticulated, Nubian, Uganda or Baringo, Masai, Angolan, and southern. The different kinds can be recognized by their spots and also by where they live in Africa. Masai giraffes, from Kenya, have spots that look like oak leaves. Other kinds have a square-shaped pattern that looks like the giraffe is covered by a net. Some zoologists think that the giraffe’s pattern is for camouflage.”

“Both male and female giraffes have two distinct, hair-covered horns called ossicones. Male giraffes use their horns to playfully fight with one another.”
