Buy a bottle of “Sequoia” wine and help save animals at a no-kill shelter

By Millicent Arko
January10, 2012 (Warner Springs) -- During January, the owners of Hawk Watch Winery in Warner Springs will be accepting donated items for Living Free, a nonprofit no-kill animal sanctuary. Dog and cat collars, beds, food, scratching posts, treats, biscuits, and items the staff needs to maintain the animals’ living spaces and grounds are all needed. In fact, Living Free has an animal “wish list” posted on its website www.living-free.org/about/our_wishlist.html 

You can also buy a bottle of “Sequoia” wine and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Living Free.

The Hawk Watch Winery is a small San Diego mountain winery in Warner Springs founded by Mike and Lisa Schnell in 2008. Hawk Watch Winery opened to the public. The wines are hand-crafted using Old World winemaking techniques. In the first year of operation, inaugural wines won 13 medals in regional, national and international competitions. The winery and tasting room is located at 27054 Chihuahua Valley Rd., Warner Springs and is open for tasting Friday 12:00– 5:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m. – 5:00p.m. The tasting fee is $8.00 for six wines and includes a crystal logo wine glass.
For the past three years, Hawk Watch has produced a Dry Rose called “Sequoia”. A donation of $2.00 for each bottle sold is given to the Living Free Animal Sanctuary in Idyllwild, CA. From the sale of this wine, and through the publics’ generous contributions in the winery tasting room, a check for $2000.00 was presented to the Living Free this week. This makes the winery’s total contribution to this no-kill animal shelter over $3,500.
Living Free Animal Sanctuary  is a donor supported 501 (c) 3 non-profit, no-kill animal sanctuary that saves, rehabilitates and finds qualified homes for orphaned and abused cats and dogs facing imminent shelter euthanasia. Learn more at http://www.living-free.org/
