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.
