Feeding and Rescuing Together is located in Timberlake, North Carolina. FRT is primarily run by individuals from our community who volunteer their time and expertise to keep our support programs running.

Our Mission

Our mission is to ensure no pet owner should have to chose between them or their pets when they are faced with temporary financial hardships. Utilizing our Blessing boxes and food pantry we will provide basic necessities for the owners and their pets. Our future goals are to rescue more animals in need and reduce the suffering of animals through our adoption, interactive education programs and utilizing our Blessing Boxes/ Community Pantry.

Feeding and rescuing are only part of what we wish to accomplish. Our ultimate goal is to become a place where the community can go to learn about animal husbandry, urban homesteading and basic home vet care. Future partnerships with local Vets, will enable us to offer low cost vaccinations and spay/neuter.

Our History

FRT started with one woman’s big heart, a dream and the goal of helping neglected, unwanted, abandoned and homeless animals. Starting with dogs and cats, her love has progressed to fill the void in our community for a safe and welcoming place for farm animals to find their fur-ever homes. With help from supporters the Community Pantry will be just the beginning, leading the way to opening a larger farm animal rescue, animal sanctuary and interactive education center promoting humane farming.
