In this conversation, we explored...
- How is animal communication used in the running of your sanctuaries?
- How does it help you and benefit the sanctuary residents?
- How does animal communication affect policies and missions? Are the animal consulted?
- How does the ability to communicate with the animals affect you personally when dealing with difficult animal cases in rescue situations?
- What do you wish more people understood about animals and their voice? And what can other people do to help animals and communicate with them?
Dawn is one of the pioneers in the field of Animal Communication. Her professional work started in 1987 when she began doing consultations. Since 1991, she has been teaching workshops in beginning and advanced Animal Communication as well as mentoring and ethics workshops for aspiring animal communicators. Dawn has helped over 8,000 human clients and has communicated with over 50,000 animals during this time. Her many years of experience as an Animal Communicator, as well as her years of running Spring Farm CARES and the thousands of animals that have come through there, have provided Dawn with a very profound understanding of animals and how they perceive their world and their connection with humans.
Dawn also has many years of experience working with animals and people going through the death process and has helped many people feel their connection with their loved ones as they go through the process and later stay connected in Spirit. Her knowledge, compassion, and sense of humor combine to lead workshop participants into a whole new understanding of our connection with all of life from the physical realm to the spirit realm.
Dawn also works as a Spiritual Intuitive, weaving together her life experiences as an empath, working in the Spirit realm, her experiences in Animal Communication, and living her mission in the sanctuary of Spring Farm CARES.
Dawn co-founded Spring Farm CARES, an animal and nature sanctuary, with Bonnie Reynolds in 1991. Home to 200-240 animals including horses, donkeys, ponies, goats, sheep, pigs, cats, rabbits, ducks and chickens, as well as a 250-acre Nature Sanctuary, Spring Farm is her home base and life’s work. Dawn has co-written two books with Bonnie: If Only They Could Talk, The Miracles of Spring Farm and The Magic Years. Dawn also is the author of Animal Wisdom for Mankind as well as many other articles for journals and
Dawn teaches several workshops throughout the year. Most are taught right at Spring Farm CARES, utilizing the great gifts and talents of the animal teachers who live at the farm to share their wisdom with all who wish to listen.
"The heart of Spring Farm CARES always has been and always will be the animals."
They have been and continue to be our teachers and guides on a most amazing journey. We learned long ago that we are not the ones rescuing them but we are the ones being rescued by them. We stand in the presence daily of animals of all sizes, from gerbils to draft horses, who teach us about forgiveness, non-judgment, and unconditional love. Most of them did not get to us on an easy path. But they have shown us repeatedly that the path to love is always right in front of us. We give them a respite and they give us their hearts and their teachings and gifts" (keep reading here).
"We believe that when our Mother Earth and all her living things were created, a loving balance, respect, and communication existed between Humans, all other life forms, and the Earth. We believe that Humankind has forgotten the original plan, to the detriment not only of others in the animal kingdom, and of the Earth, but of ourselves. We believe that a return to an understanding of our oneness with All That Is will cure the cruelties and horrors, and the illnesses with which we find ourselves surrounded. Through our caring contribution, we hope to help Humankind remember that original plan of love and respect, to remember our natural ability to communicate with All That Is, and so return to balanced health, physically, mentally, spiritually, and in relationship to all.
Blessings to everyone. Keep your visions. Dream your dreams. And NEVER give up hope."

She is an animal communicator, powerful speaker, celebrated animal welfare advocate, humane educator, and the author of My Gentle Barn: Creating a sanctuary where animals heal and children learn to hope.
Ellie founded The Gentle Barn in 1999. She invented her own “Gentle Healing” method that allows old, sick, injured, and terrified animals to recover fully using a mixture of Western medicine, holistic healing modalities, holding therapy, and lots of love. Ellie is the creator of cow hug therapy and has hosted hundreds of thousands of people who have come to The Gentle Barn seeking hope.
Ellie has appeared on some of the most influential media outlets including The Ellen Show, People Magazine, Life Magazine, Animal Planet, The Huffington Post, Turning Point, Women’s World, The New York Times, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and many more.
Ellie is a TEDx speaker and keynote speaker who motivates her audiences toward higher awareness, profound compassion, realizing dreams, and an enhanced sense of purpose.
To date, Ellie has saved thousands of animals and hosted over 500,000 guests. The Gentle Barn is currently home to approximately 200 animals. The Gentle Barn has three locations in Los Angeles CA, Nashville, TN, and St Louis, MO. It is her goal to be the voice for animals, share their stories, and open the hearts of humanity toward all living beings, “Teaching people kindness and compassion to animals, each other, and our planet.”
"With your support, we work each day to create a gentler world by rescuing animals, giving them rehabilitation and sanctuary at The Gentle Barn, and then hosting people looking for hope, and opening people’s hearts to the intelligence, affection, and magic of animals."
A Founders Message
"We live in a concrete, violent, noisy, high tech, busy world. We have lost our connection to animals, to nature, and most of all, to ourselves. Animals are living lives of torment from beginning to end, their cries are unheard, their pain is unseen, and they are suffering. The rate of heart disease, cancer, obesity, and diabetes has never been higher. The rain forests are being destroyed, we are in a global drought, we are polluting our air, and species go extinct every day. But by having reverence for all life and by reconnecting with Mother Earth we each can change all that.
At The Gentle Barn we stand up for the innocent, and we help animals and children alike remember that they matter. We open people’s hearts to the connections with nature. We open people’s minds to what is happening around us. And we inspire people to be an integral part of the solution. Through the stories and interactions with our animals, we can raise future generations to have reverence for all life, protect our planet, live good healthy, happy lives, and we will all be closer to having peace on earth!"
