Fuzzy Faces Refuge believes that every person has value and not only the ability to contribute to society in meaningful ways but a strong desire to do so. That is why FFR and our volunteers are strong, sincere educators of inclusion for all persons. We are wholehearted advocates for universal design and possess a core belief that everyone working together can and will create a better world.

A Safe Place
FFR cooperates with organizations that support the mentally, physically and emotionally disabled in order to promote therapeutic opportunities for this population of children and adults at our farm. We can assist with recommendations for adoption of appropriate animals for therapeutic interaction at home.
A Community Partner
FFR supports our community by partnering with local organizations, participating in local events, and hosting events at our 72 acre farm. FFR ensures that each individual having contact with our animals is provided with training to ensure success for everyone!
