Every Wednesday I look forward to seeing all my friends at The Devoted Barn. I can’t wait to cuddle Hank and Harley, nuzzle with Honey, work on making friends with Hannah, and getting kisses from the feral dogs. A ton of money and energy goes into this place on a daily basis. The lives that are being changed and enhance by the existence of this barn range from disabled adults and children, teenagers that are already in “the system”, retired people who are looking something to do and people like me. If anyone has time, supplies or funds to help keep us afloat, consider an afternoon with the animals or a tax deductible donation to the Devoted Barn.
