Fuzzy Faces Refuge is a North Carolina 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. We are a PATH International Member Center offering therapeutic equine activities for Veterans, First Responders, their families and others who have sustained psychological and/or physical wounds in service to others by restoring a sense of self, quality of life and hope.
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 primary focus is on Veterans, First Responders and the Heroes within our community and their families.
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.
