I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
It was a cold rainy October morning about a year after Payton had been adopted from Cedar Farm that she and her new master were walking back to the house after their daily trip to the mailbox. They were almost back when her master fell to the ground. Payton didn’t know her master had suffered a stroke but she knew something was wrong. She pushed him up under the car out of the rain and put herself between him and the elements to keep him warm and dry. She stayed with him all night, never leaving his side until the next morning when a friend of her master came to visit. She ran to the friend and he called an ambulance to take her master to the hospital. He recovered and is doing well. Sadly, he had to return Payton to us. He was moving to a place where he could not take her. She is a little older now, almost 7 but still as spunky, friendly and wonderful as ever. She is heartworm negative and on monthly preventatives for heartworms, fleas and ticks. We would love to introduce you to Payton! The first step in our adoption process is the application. Our form can be completed at our website www.cedarfarmrescue.com . After you have submitted the form, please call Tony at 336.251.8877 with any questions about Payton or our adoption process and to make an appointment to visit. If you don't reach Tony, please call back instead of leaving a message. Meetings are held at our adoption center in downtown Mocksville by appointment only. Thank you so much for considering a rescued dog!
We are a small rescue in central North Carolina, devoted to finding loving, caring, permanent homes for dogs in need. We have 6 rescued dogs of our own and began assisting with rescue transports in the spring of 2005. In doing the transports and making contacts with various rescue agencies, animal control officers and shelter volunteers, we realized the need was overwhelming for places to get dogs deserving a second chance to safety and began fostering dogs in the summer of 2005. Many of the shelters we assist are in very rural areas and have virtually no adoption traffic. Some of the shelters are not well-funded and can be scary places for the public to visit. We provide a temporary home where the dogs can get out of a shelter environment or away from an abusive or neglectful situation and actively work to find qualified permanent homes for them. We insure that all dogs are up to date on age-appropriate vetting and on heartworm preventative and have them spayed or neutered if they have not already been altered. Cedar Farm, Inc. is registered as a non-profit corporation with the State of North Carolina. and has been given 501c3 status by the IRS. Donations are tax deductible and non-refundable.
