Farm Friends Rescue was founded by Pittsboro, NC resident Karen Hall. For her, it all started at a young age when she decided she would like to run an animal rescue for coonhounds. She was 12 years old at the time. As an adult, Karen helped as an advocate for animals with the Lee County animal shelter in Lee County, NC. She also began fostering animals with several other local rescues and as a result, got a taste for what running a rescue looks like. In 2013, Karen was able to see her childhood dream through to fruition. At last, Farm Friends Rescue became part of Chatham County, NC! Rather than being a rescue for coonhounds only, FFR became a rescue for all animals.
