Redwings Horse Sanctuary, a 501(c)3 nonprofit horse rescue in Paso Robles, is having a special event during the month of February called SHARE THE LOVE FOR REDWINGS. The idea is to “Tell a Friend” why Redwings is a nonprofit worth donating to, while sipping, eating, and shopping in and around Paso Robles. People then take a photo of themselves Sharing the Love, tag the business and Redwings on Instagram, and are entered to win a gift basket of Redwings merchandise. Look for window cards displayed by participating businesses in and around SLO County, then click on the QR code on the table tent card inside on the register or counter to get to the link. 

This month-long event is not limited to Paso Robles. You can SHARE THE LOVE from ANYWHERE. Go to the Redwings Horse Sanctuary website, and go to “Events.”  You will find the SHARE THE LOVE EVENT and learn how you can donate. We also have some t-shirts printed specially for our event under “Shop.” Check out our new updated website and find out more about our public tours, volunteer opportunities and signature equine adoption program. Redwings is a 30-year strong GFAS (Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries) accredited horse rescue and sanctuary for many wonderful reasons!

Marilyn and I have been associated with Redwings Horse Sanctuary for over twenty-one years. We started to support Redwings shortly after it was founded and have served as volunteers, officers, and board members. We have visited the sanctuary to view with compassion the horses who had been rescued from dire situations and rehabilitated and restored to good health.
“We also helped in the relocation of the sanctuary to Paso Robles, California. The wonderful care given to the animals by the staff and volunteers of Redwings has been the driving force in our continuing to support the mission of the organization. I am sure the new facility will enhance the care of the animals and we wish Redwings continued success.

Paso Here We Are

Prior to moving to its new spread in 2021, Redwings Horse Sanctuary led a capital campaign called “Paso Here We Come” to pay for its new permanent facility. Even though Redwings has arrived in Paso Robles, the fundraising campaign continues with a target of $1 million. “Now that we’ve completed the move, we expect to have additional volunteers and to be able to offer more guided tours and educational outreach to the public. With our new proximity to the San Luis Obispo County community, we anticipate more interest in Redwings, which hopefully turns into more fundraising support,” says Linelle Soxman, a board director.
