We are a small rescue in central North Carolina, devoted to finding loving, caring,
permanent homes for dogs in need. We have 5 rescued dogs of our own and began assisting
with rescue transports in the spring of 2005. In doing the transports and making
contacts with various rescue agencies, animal control officers and shelter volunteers,
we realized the need was overwhelming for places to get dogs deserving a second chance
to safety and began fostering dogs in the summer of 2005.
Many of the shelters we assist are in very rural areas and have virtually no adoption
traffic. Some of the shelters are not well-funded and can be scary places for the
public to visit. We provide a temporary home where the dogs can get out of a shelter
environment or away from an abusive or neglectful situation and actively work to
find qualified permanent homes for them.
We are a registered non-profit corporation with the State of North Carolina and have
been granted 501c3 status by the IRS. Donations to Cedar Farm are tax-deductible.
Saving dogs is hard work. It is very time-consuming and we are often discouraged
by the sheer number of wonderful dogs that we are unable to help. Any doubt that
this is what we should be doing was erased when Buzz, a long-term foster, literally
saved one of our lives. It became more than our passion and we know this is what
our life’s work is meant to be. A rescued pit bull is the reason we are here, alive
and able to do what we do.
