Porchlight Animal Sanctuary will be a permanent home for rescued animals, where visitors can meet the individuals typically seen as food. Through our programs, we hope to inspire others to create change that will benefit animals, people, and the planet!



Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge (The Refuge) is a non-profit organization that provides lifelong sanctuary to farm animals in need, educates the public about the cruelties of factory farms, and promotes veganism by offering knowledge, support, and community to people interested in living cruelty-free lifestyles.

Founded in 2012, The Refuge is located in North Carolina just 15 minutes away from the downtowns of Carrboro, Saxapahaw, and Pittsboro and 20 minutes away from downtown Chapel Hill.

Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary is a 400 acre non-profit refuge in Poolesville, Maryland for farm animals and wildlife that relies entirely on public donations for support. Their mission is to offer care, rehabilitation, and permanent sanctuary for neglected, abused or abandoned farm animals, as well as providing a protected habitat for wildlife. They promote compassion and the humane treatment of all animals by educating the public on farm animal and wildlife issues. From Petunia the pig, our first rescue, to the over 200 animals currently living at the sanctuary – your donations and support ensure their continued happiness and comfort.

The mission of Prevent A Litter Veterinary Hospital is to eliminate the killing of healthy, otherwise adoptable companion animals simply because they are surplus and cannot be placed in loving homes. P.A.L. plans to accomplish this goal by providing high quality, affordable, and accessible spay/neuter services to the public without regard to income or geography.
