Frank Ferrante on De-clawing and Cats
May,7,2014.1:00pm est Today we are going to speak with Ellie Laks Ellie Laks was born in Israel and raised in The United States. She has always loved animals and from the time she could walk she was out in nature playing with animals. As soon as she was an adult Ellie started a dog training, walking, boarding and grooming business that she used as a means to rescue animals from being put down at the animal shelter. Over the several years that Ellie did this she successfully placed over 500 animals into loving, forever homes. Ellie was attracted to the old, sick, lame or scared animals that were often times not adoptable, so in 1999 Ellie founded The Gentle Barn Foundation, home to severely abused and neglected animals that no one else wants. She came up with a special healing process that allows old, sick, injured and terrified animals to recover using a mixture of Western medicine and holistic healing modalities as well as nutritional products, holding therapy and lots of love. The Gentle Barn is now home to over 170 animals in Santa Clarita, California. Once healed and happy, the animals help Ellie heal at risk, inner city and special needs children who have the same stories as the animals. Ellie lives on the property with her husband and their 3 children. Her husband Jay Weiner works at The Gentle Barn with her and together they get to see miracles every day. It is their goal to build Gentle Barns around the world.
