For more than 30 years, PAWS has been at the forefront of efforts to rescue and provide humane sanctuary for retired or abandoned performing animals. They provide these animals the space, natural habitat and quality of care which they deserve.
"We have valued our long-standing community relationship with the Phillips family. The generous support from Michael David Winery will be put to work immediately at our ARK 2000 caring for our rescued elephants, tigers, bears, and other animals," says Ed Stewart, PAWS co-founder and President.
Michael David Winery is owned by brothers Michael and David Phillips, who have built their Lodi winery into one of the fastest growing wineries in the United States. The Phillips brothers released their first commercial wine in 1984 under the Phillips Vineyards label after years of growing grapes for other wineries. Now celebrating more than 30 years as a bonded winery, Michael and David have over 800 acres of vineyards in Lodi. They pride themselves on their meticulous farming practices and sustainable wine grape growing, which result in superior quality in the bottle. Their hard work has paid off as the wines regularly take top awards and recognition nationwide. Michael David Winery is located one mile east of Interstate 5 on Highway 12 in Lodi, California.
