In the heart of North Carolina, a young couple is shedding convention and creating a
new design for animal care.
Featuring award-winning cinematography and an endearing cast of animal characters, this new documentary sparkles with unbridled imagination, brilliant workarounds, and a huge dose of compassion.
Forever HOME offers a blueprint for a more compassionate way forward.
Lenore Braford and Paul Drake, an architectural designer, are pursuing their dream to build a refuge for rescued farm animals by using a new set of blueprints. With a team of passionate volunteers, they're pioneering a concept they call "Animal Centered Design."
Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge is the antithesis of factory farms; the structures are unique to each species: the goat house is vertical, the chicken house has wings that open with the sun and close for protection at night, and the duck house is cantilevered over a pond.
The Refuge houses 120 residents, but that's about to change. Calls are mounting to provide a home for cows rescued from the dairy and ranching industries...The film follows the hurdles as they build a structure designed specifically for cows (not Old MacDonald's barn!) The story climaxes as the first cows arrive, two mothers and their calves rescued from a ranch in Oklahoma.
Designed for the animals...
