The Sanctuary at Red Bell Run

We are a 501(c)3 located in Columbus, NC providing a forever home to special needs equines from across the United States.

The Sanctuary at Red Bell Run is home to special needs equines, those with medical or behavioral issues that make them unadoptable. Many times our residents are able to have a good quality of life with managed care; care that other organizations may not be able to provide due to staffing or financial restrictions. We strive to give each horse, mule, or donkey we care for the things that they lacked before coming to Red Bell Run. We do a lot of things here but at the Sanctuary, the most important thing we do is simply love them. They come here in need. We fulfill as many of those needs as we can.  

Our Mission

To rescue abused, neglected or at risk equines and other animals, offering rehabilitation and permanent placement including lifelong sanctuary. Foster the animal-human bond through empathy building, community assistance, educational and therapeutic programs. 

the vineyard

Seven Chimneys, LLC produces several varietals of grapes at Red Bell Run including Merlot, Chardonnay, Viognier, and Pinot Grigio. While we do not make wine at Red Bell Run, our grapes can be found in wines produced by Mountain Brook Vineyards in Tryon, NC.

The vineyards were planted 20 years ago by our vineyard manager, Silvano Chavez, for the Mize Family. We are very proud of being a part of the grape-producing region of Polk County, NC, and feel that the atmosphere and beauty of Red Bell Run is enhanced by our 40-acre vineyard.
