‘Jeopardy!’ Host Mayim Bialik Tours ‘Beautiful’ Animal Shelter With Her Sons

by Kati Michelle

“Jeopardy!” host Mayim Bialik recently celebrated her 46th birthday. Instead of making the day about herself, though, she chose to highlight a whole slew of charities. These included the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, Together Rising, and World Vision USA– all of which have been involved with helping victims of the deadly storms that impacted much of the Midwest and other parts of the country.

It should come as no surprise then that the star spent some of her downtime touring a “beautiful” animal shelter with her two sons Miles and Frederick. According to a tweet from Bialik, the family spent a day at one of the three branches of the Gentle Barn.

The ‘Jeopardy!’ Host Gushes About Her Family’s Trip

Although the “Jeopardy!” host mentions that her sons attended the Gentle Barn with her, you won’t catch them in the video she shared. The actress has been notoriously private about her personal life, so you won’t see them on her Instagram account either. But we can assume they all had a great time based on the clips that Bialik did share.

You can catch the full video here:

Mayim then left this long caption in a series of tweets under the video:

“I’m sure you can tell from the pictures that I had an incredible time and here are a few highlights: I got to meet three llamas (I cried bc I love them so much), I cuddled a turkey, I breathed in time with a cow, and I played with many pigs.

Thank you Ellie and everyone at @TheGentleBarn for your love of these animals who have so much to teach us!!! Please consider visiting the Barn – it’s a great and safe activity for these times and they also can host parties outside!”

More About the Gentle Barn

According to its website, the 501(c)(3) corporation has Gentle Barn facilities in California, Tennessee, and Missouri. They offer private tours, vegan goodies, and even cow hug therapy. I don’t know about you, but you can sign me up for that last one stat.

The founders, Ellie and Jay, have been saving animals since 1999.

A quick blurb from their mission statement reads as follows:

“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…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.”
