Red Bell Run Stories
Red Bell Run accepts animals, from law enforcement and other 501(c)3 rescues, whose quality of life is still acceptable, but who need more intensive or special care to remain comfortable. It is one of a few of its kind in the country, providing individualized care to over 100 equines.
On Dec 2, 2019 we lost our beloved Phoebe, assistant farm manager and sanctuary mascot. Her unique spirit will never be forgotten.
