I am a fundraiser for
Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge
Eliot and I sharing a tender moment. Eliot was wandering homeless before finding safety at the Refuge.
When I founded Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge in 2012, my vision was to create a safe and loving space for rescued farm animals, who are some of the most overlooked and abused beings in our society. Thanks to endless support from volunteers and donors, that vision is now a reality. I am proud to work alongside so many remarkable people who are passionately dedicated to this cause, and I am honored to care for the animal residents who are brave survivors and incredible ambassadors for others of their kind.
Our first turkeys, Andi, Louie, and Jordan, were rescued in 2014 from a factory farm.Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge is home to over 120 animals rescued from cases of abuse, neglect, and abandonment.
These chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, goats, and sheep are provided with lifelong sanctuary and the highest level of care, including enriching environments designed with their unique needs in mind. The Refuge is almost entirely volunteer run -- we have only two paid part-time staff members.
Coretta and I share a nose kiss! Coretta was rescued from a backyard butchery operation in upstate New York along with almost 200 other animals who were found neglected and starving.
This is our first year participating in the Great Human Race, a fundraiser featuring a 5K run and a 5K community walk on Saturday, March 28th in Durham. There are many ways you can help! The Refuge is looking for walkers, runners (use the code PFA20
and we’ll get a $5 referral), fundraisers, and donors to help us achieve our fundraising goal of $5,000
My work at the Refuge is my life. I help care for the residents on a daily basis and my main focus is their utmost health and happiness. Please consider a donation and be sure to share our fundraiser with others. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
