The Devoted Barn, a 53-acre non-profit Animal rescue & rehabilitation center in Monroe County, MI is a place of hope, love and strength. It devotes itself to challenging cases of animal abuse & neglect. They are also one of the few feral dog rehabilitation facilities in the USA. More than 200 animals have been placed in loving forever homes after being cared for at The Devoted Barn-animals who were stabbed, shot, starved, beaten or confiscated from hoarding situations. Melissa Borden, founder of The Devoted Barn is a woman whose commitment, character, determination and strength are focused on being the change she wants to see in the world. In addition to rescuing horses, pigs, goats, llamas, cats & dogs, Melissa is a single mother to five amazing kids. They have worked alongside her to make every rescued animal know they are now out of harm’s way. If that is not rare enough, Melissa opens her doors to at-risk youth & individuals with special needs to provide them with the experience of interacting with the animals. The Devoted Barn’s motto is “Teaching Compassion through Positive Action.” Melissa visits schools, often taking special needs animals with her, to teach compassion through stories of resiliency & the challenges these animals have overcome while providing education on how working together can make a difference. The Devoted Barn relies financially on donations and fundraisers. Melissa is not paid and there are no funds to hire staff (or fix the leaking roof or the pasture fencing) but that does not stop her. The Devoted Barn is run entirely by Melissa and her “Barn Family”.
