FROM FARM TO FAMILY CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
In 2006, Gary and I founded Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network so that ALL types of animals could have a safe place to stay while awaiting a forever family. That vision has been the driving force behind everything we do, from forming the rescue network to expanding the number of species served to acquiring a permanent farm facility in 2019. In order to maximize the effectiveness of the foster network, we knew that the organization needed a permanent “home” and intake facility. In 2019, we moved our headquarters from our leased office space at Bur-Mil Park to the new farm facility in Stokesdale. The farm sits on 21 acres and we have converted the house into office space. It allows our staff to have a space available at a moment’s notice when they
receive a call about an animal in need, regardless of species. It also allows for more opportunities for volunteers to share in the daily work of the organization.
Buying the farm was a leap of faith, but we felt that it was necessary to enable the organization to grow and fulfill its mission. We have begun the process of upgrading the existing barn and fencing but there is so much left to do. If you have not yet seen the new farm, please do consider a visit. It has become a central hub of volunteer and staff activity and you never know what animals you may meet there on any given day. If you are able to contribute any amount to help us continue to maximize the possibilities for helping more and more animals at the farm, we’d really appreciate it. Thank you!

Red Dog Farm provides all animals with a safe, loving refuge before they find a forever home.
Red Dog Farm IS A LEADER IN RESOURCES
Animals come first
Red Dog Farm does more than rescue and care for the animals we take on — we rehabilitate them and help them find a forever home.
Carefully selected foster homes
With the aid of 75 to 80 foster homes, our pets receive excellent care as they await their forever homes.
All Red Dog Farm rescues are treated with individualized care and attention, including basic medical work such as vaccines, spaying or neutering, and various medical treatments.
Help us build a farm and a future
In the first year, 150 animals called the farm home temporarily.
