"Our first rescue, Scarlet, was the catalyst and reason for founding Scarlet Oak Farms. Upon learning of her cancer diagnosis in 2017, I knew her legacy would live on through the continued rescue work we're dedicated to."
Scarlet Oak Farms was founded in 2018 by a couple of animal advocates in Ayden, North Carolina after learning the harsh realities of shelter adoptions and that our area was inundated with stray and relinquished animals. By partnering with local shelters, Scarlet Oak Farms formed to rescue as many homeless and stray animals as possible. With our network of volunteer advocates, veterinarians, and donors; Scarlet Oak Farms is able to rescue numerous animals in our area every year.
Scarlet Oak Farms is fully incorporated by the state of North Carolina and organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes of companion animal rescue. The organization is not-for-profit and obtained 501(c)(3) status from the IRS in 2018.
Scarlet Oak Farms obtains nearly all rescued animals from Pitt County shelters and surround areas. We work to take animals whose time has expired in the shelter's care and are at risk of being immediately euthanized. While we are mindful of not overextending ourselves, we take in as many rescues as possible while ensuring that all animals in our care are receiving proper medical attention, rehabilitation, and respect.
