Sweet Bear Rescue Farm
Flat Rock, North Carolina
The farm is a beacon of hope for animals of all species -- a place where kindness and compassion are the norm, and all individuals are treated with love and respect. Sweet Bear is dedicated to changing the world, spreading the values of veganism, and creating a safe haven for those who've experienced abuse and neglect. The bucolic setting may be the the first place where many people encounter farmed animals -- species typically exploited and slaughtered by the meat, dairy, and egg industries. Here, visitors can engage with the individual personalities of the residents, and learn about the intelligence, deep emotional capacity, and amazing complexity of these wonderful animals.
