Animal Rescue Spotlight - Peep's Playground 501 c 3

Updated: May 11, 2020

At Peep's Playground and Kensington Ridge Farms Rescue & Sanctuary we believe that every animal needs a chance. Especially after humans have failed them. We provide a safe, comfortable environment for animals to rehabilitate, emotionally, mentally and physically. We will do everything we can to find suitable adopters for the animals that are eligible for adoption. The ones that are not eligible, or no one seems to be interested in, we will provide them with a sanctuary for the rest of their day. With our hospice service, we strongly feel that no terminal animal should be euthanized in a shelter environment. We want to bring those animals to our farm for their end of days. Even if it’s only for a few days. We will keep them as comfortable as possible in order for them to have quality of life while on the farm. When we are no longer able to manage their pain we will help them pass over the rainbow bridge with dignity in a home environment, in a warm bed, surrounded by love. No animals should ever suffer at the hands of humans. We are here to provide them a safe haven.

Kensington Ridge Farms Rescue and Sanctuary, is the home of “Peep’s Playground” a Non Profit 501 c 3 Approved Rescue, Rehabilitation, Hospice and Sanctuary for abandoned and stray dogs. Many animals in the animal control system are placed into an adoption program called ‘PetPals.” Those with medical conditions, behavioral issues (or because of limited space) are either sent to rescue groups or euthanized. Recently Peeps Playground applied to be a recipient of these pets.

Peeps Playground was founded in 2018 by Shelly Swetnam, President and Managing Director of Peep’s Playground (aka Kensington Ridge Farms Rescue & Sanctuary). Peeps Playground and Kensington Ridge Farms Rescue & Sanctuary recently moved to a beautiful 70+ acre farm in Canton Georgia. Their new location is conveniently located less than an hour North of Atlanta.

Shelly is a life long animal lover and former corporate executive who spent 20 years managing multiple corporations, employees and accounting. Since then she has turned her attention to her Dressage Farm Kensington Ridge PRE’s and can be found with her partner/husband, horses and dogs year round in Canton Georgia.
