Cedar Row

“Cedar Row has been in existence since 1999 and is one of the oldest farm sanctuaries in Ontario. Siobhan and Peter Poole run the sanctuary with help from with their two children Cicada and Patrick as well as a group of dedicated volunteers. Hundreds of animals have been rescued over the years, each just as special of the other. Prior to establishing Cedar Row, Siobhan and Pete worked with wildlife rescue and purchased the sanctuary property with intention to continue this work. Soon after purchasing the farm the Poole’s heard of many local animal rescue groups looking for homes to place rescued farm animals. Soon many animals in need made their way to Cedar Row changing a hobby to a full-time focus for the Poole family.”

Oppose Uranium Exploration and Mining in West Quebec!
