Robin Hood was rescued by our founder Barbara.  He was found severely injured on the side of Lawrence Road.  He was lovingly nursed back to health at her home then came to live at the Farm. His gentle loving temperament makes him a favorite with our volunteers and visitors.  Our largest cat, he is well respected by our other cats. His best cat friend is Jo Jo- our smallest cat!

The Farm at Oatland North is an animal sanctuary located on the north end of St. Simons Island.  In the 1700's the land was known as Oatland Plantation.  Doug Taylor, Barbara Hasell Murrah's grandfather, purchased the property in the 1940's. Barbara and her husband, Bascom, returned to the Island over a dozen years ago and began the farm with her horse, Lightning.  They were soon joined by their daughter, 

Natalie, who brought 2 cows with her, Amanda and Panda.  

The family farm continued to grow as the farm adopted retired, unwanted, abused, and abandoned animals. The Farm was primarily funded by the Murrah family and in 2012 it was incorporated and became a 501 c(3) not for profit charity.  Sadly, Barbara lost her brief battle with cancer in July 2013.  With the help of the Murrah family, dedicated volunteers, and friends, the Farm continues to provide sanctuary for animals.
