Be a Farley Foster Hero
Fostering is a personal and gratifying way to contribute to saving more lives. Providing a loving and stable environment for one animal to thrive, also frees up critical space at the shelter for another.
Champion Their Success
Fostering is important work. By opening your home to foster an animal in need, you’re not only providing the individual attention they desperately need but also helping to build their confidence to ensure their lifelong success.

We recently marked the tenth anniversary of the passing of our first rescue dog, Farley, the namesake of our organization. Our mission during nearly ten years of operation was, and is, to save extraordinary rescue animals from needless destruction so that others may have the opportunity to experience the joy of their companionship. Recent donations (matched on a two-to-one basis by an anonymous donor) allow us to sponsor and support animals like Titan, who came to Sarge’s Animal Rescue severely malnourished, and Owen, who arrived at Stray Rescue after suffering a gunshot wound that left him paralyzed.
Why Are We Killing So Many Animals?
It was reported approximately 18 months ago through several news outlets that Best Friends Animal Society, a 35 year-old non-profit animal rescue organization and the nation’s largest homeless animal sanctuary, completed a state-by-state study of the number of animals killed in public facilities. North Carolina ranked third worst in the United States by killing 55,900 animals behind only Texas and California, states with populations three and four times larger.
