to Ziggy's Refuge!

Ziggy's Refuge is a non-profit, farm animal sanctuary located in Providence, North Carolina. Ziggy's is dedicated to creating better lives for the victims of animal cruelty (mainly the meat, dairy, and egg industries) by means of shelter, medical care, and education.

Ziggy's Refuge was founded in 2016 by Kristin Hartness and Jay Yontz, and currently, is home to over 60 animals! Over the years, Jay and Kristin especially have grown a soft spot for special needs animals. They are the full time caretakers of several residents with special needs ranging from amputated limbs to spina bifida.

The organization is run completely by donations and the compassion of its volunteers, employees, and the compassionate supporters of Ziggy Nation.
