Meet the Staff


Admin and Marketing Coordinator: Michael Hoerger

Michael became the Administrative and Marketing Coordinator for Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge in the summer of 2018. Before coming to the Refuge, Michael managed marketing for Monroe County Public Library in Indiana and Democracy Now! in New York City. He has been vegan for over 25 years and has been fighting to abolish cages—holding animals and humans—for nearly as long.

When he’s not in the Refuge office or taking photos of the residents, you can find Michael tinkering with analog synthesizers, practicing Shaolin Kung Fu, and hanging out with his partner Mia and their rescued pitbull, Pony.
