Connecting Nature, Kittens, and Kids


Our animal sanctuary is nestled within 22 acres of forestland in North Carolina’s Appalachian Mountains.  We believe that time in nature is instrumental to our health and well-being.  Deeper still, offering kids experiences in our natural environment, fosters an appreciation and understanding of the value of all creatures in the interconnected world we share.


Providing a cozy and creative, home-like environment for up to nine homeless kittens at a time, we prepare them for their forever homes.  After an initial vet check and quarantine, they are integrated with our other cats in care.  Our no-kill rescue has placed more than 90% of our kittens into loving homes across six states since our founding in 2019.  Our expansion plans include a cluster of kitten cottages that will allow us to triple our size and rescue more kittens in need.


We offer kids of all ages opportunities for growth and development through experiences with nature and our kittens in care.  From recorded storytime videos to school field trips to programs for foster families, the forest and its inhabitants are here to teach lessons of character, connection, and truth.
