A Long Island Winery Supports Horse Rescue

Mirage: Proceeds Benefit Horse Rescue

Bait Hollow Farms Vineyard is a winery and vineyard that is making a difference to more than 30 horses who would have been sent to slaughter. Sharon Levine and Richard Rubin became interested in saving horses that were destined for slaughter. Sharon learned all she could about horses that are sent to slaughterhouses even if they were healthy. In 2012 Richard and Sharon received the Pet Hero Award from the Pet Philanthropy Circle.

Today the horses at Bait Hollow Farms Vineyard have comfortable paddocks. Visitors can take a tour and greet the horses. An array of horses will be seen. Look for the Clydesdale, an Arabian, and miniatures.

According to their website, the mission of Baiting Hollow Farm Horse Rescue is:

To stop the slaughter of American horses through raising funds for…

  • Maintaining and expanding our own horse rescue sanctuary facility.
  • Rescuing other horses who are in need and finding suitable owners and homes for them.
  • Educating and guiding the public as to how they can help support the legislation which will stop the export of American horses to Canada and Mexico for slaughter.

Granting funds to encourage and incentivize new horse rescue organizations as well as the expansion and improvement of existing ones so as to achieve a sustainable system to accommodate mass numbers of horses whose lives have been saved.

Currently the winery is producing three wines of which the profits of the sales go to support their horse sanctuary and rescue organization. Anyone interested in helping Horse Rescue is encouraged to contact their Senators to support shipment of American horses to Canada and Mexico slaughterhouses.

Cheers! Kathy
