Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge is a non-profit organization that works to rescue farm animals in need, educate people about the cruelties of factory farms, and promote veganism by offering knowledge, support, and community to people interested in living cruelty-free lifestyles.
The Refuge is working to build a sanctuary that will care for rescued chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, goats, pigs and cows who come from lives of abuse, neglect and abandonment. These animals will find peace and protection on 16 acres of pasture and woods where they will be provided with top notch, life-long care.
Factory Farming Education
Farm animals living in factory farms suffer from intense confinement, physical mutilations and denial of their most basic natural desires. Routine practices in these facilities equate to animal cruelty that would be illegal if done to dogs or cats. The Refuge is working to educate the general public about these cruel practices through providing innovative literature, guided sanctuary tours, and other creative educational experiences.
The Refuge strives to inspire and encourage cruelty-free living by offering a non-judgmental, supportive community of compassionate advocates who will work to answer questions and offer solutions for people interested in moving towards a vegan lifestyle. Through taking small or large steps, each of us can work towards fully living our values by examining the every day choices we make in what we consume. Through cooking classes, bake sales, food samplings, and other food-based events, we will work to demystify veganism and provide the tools people need to make compassionate choices.
