Drake’s Organic Spirits Gives Animals in Need a Second Chance
Fast-growing spirits brand funds rescue center for animals in urgent need
Minneapolis, Minnesota ( March 25, 2019 ) - – Drake’s Organic Spirits, an environmentally conscious and growing brand leading the spirits industry with its commitment to a better planet for man and beast, announced today that it will provide financial and material support to Long Lake Animal Rescue. The non-profit foundation located on 40 acres in Long Lake, MN provides a safe and loving environment for a variety of animals including horses, donkeys, dogs, cats, deer, goats and virtually any animal that needs a second chance.
Drake’s Organic Spirits produces premium organic vodka, white rum, spiced rum, Spiked Ice ice pops and organic mixes. The company’s founders, Mark and Kristen Anderson, have long had a passion for causes that support animals. It’s a passion that has been passed down to their three daughters.
“Long Lake Animal Rescue provides a life-saving home for animals who have been given up on, abused or abandoned. All they need is a second chance and unconditional love. Drake’s Organic Spirits is committed to supporting our four-legged family members who bring so much joy to our lives every day,” said Mark Anderson.
One such example is Spud, a horse at the end of his racing career. Instead of being shipped off to be slaughtered for food, he was brought to Long Lake Animal Rescue. Over the next year Spud will unwind by spending time in grass filled pastures playing with other horses. Eventually Spud will provide therapeutic relief to others by providing grooming and trail rides.
In addition to its support of the animal rescue, Drake’s supports other important animal-related causes such as the recent Drake’s Banquet Celebrating 21 Years of Compassionate Action for Animals. The event raised funds the nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage people to embrace their empathy for farmed animals and move toward a plant-based diet.
Drake’s is the first and only spirit line in the world to achieve five certifications: USDA Organic, Vegan, Gluten Free, Non GMO Project Verified and Kosher. It’s received Gold Medals at the prestigious San Diego International Spirits Competition and the Asia International Spirits Competition.
