The Carolina Waterfowl Sanctuary was destroyed in spring of 2012 after a tornado ripped through the facility. Buildings were destroyed by the strong winds and many of the waterfowl were injured. Fortunately, with the help of 45 volunteers, Rescue Rebuild was able to assist in rebuilding the sanctuary. Volunteers put in over 5,000 hours of rehabilitating the Indian Trail, North Carolina-based sanctuary. One of the biggest projects involved building a gigantic barn, used to shelter geese, ducks, turkeys, goats, and chicks during future storms. Constructing the barn was the biggest project Rescue Rebuild had completed to date. They also constructed a 2,500 perimeter chain link fence, which encompasses the 11-acre property in order to create a safe haven for their feathered friends.
