Do you love Goats?!

If you love goats then do we have a fun volunteer opportunity for you!

We have four brand new baby goats and a few more on the way! We need volunteers to come and love on and play with our goats each afternoon. These aren't just any goats either. These are super sweet, critically endangered San Clemente Island goats and there are less than 1,000 registered in the entire world. That's right! And, they have a unique genetic code that isn't related to any other goat breed.

How cool would it be to come love on and play with the sweetest, rarest goats on the planet? If you can't volunteer in person, please consider supporting our herd with a one time or recurring donation. Just search online for Fuzzy Faces Refuge to check out our website and our goats :)

If you can help out, please don't worry if you haven't done it before as we will show you what to do. But, its just big fun to hang out with goats LOL

About Fuzzy Faces Refuge

Location:

600 Ryans Lane, Clayton, NC 27520, US

Mission Statement

Fuzzy Faces Refuge (FFR) is a NC 501c3 non-profit that provides a sanctuary for endangered heritage breed farm animals where people of all abilities can interact safely with animals using positive, therapeutic experiences that build confidence, enable positive progress and afford opportunities that may otherwise be unavailable.

Description

Fuzzy Faces Refuge is dedicated to protecting and promoting endangered livestock and poultry from extinction to preserve our heritage for generations to come. As part of our education and conservancy effort, we offer opportunities for therapeutic interaction and adoption of the endangered breeds that we raise.

As a PATH International Member Center, and through our program Freedom Steps, we are uniquely situated to offer Equine Assisted Animal Therapy to the surrounding community. Our programs include providing equine-assisted activities and therapeutic riding for those who live with physical, emotional or cognitive challenges, or those enduring psychological and/or physical wounds, including children, adults, veterans and first responders.

FFR has a small petting zoo that the local community, schools and therapists can visit by invitation or appointment with their families, friends, students or patients. Get to know our resident fuzzy faces and enjoy the therapeutic value found within a serene farm setting.
