A Little Bit of Heaven Incis a new and upcoming business located in North LawrenceNY! We are formally known as the Silver Star Ranch, but in March of this year opened as a non-profit through the state of NY. We are an EquineRehabilitationCenter. We take unwanted horses that were heading to slaughter and have potential and rehabilitee them, and adopt out to good homes.

Recent headlines have brought us much attention and our number of volunteers and interest from the public is growing at a rapid rate! In five short months we have taken in 31 horses. These horses have come from places including Long Island, Vernon, Owl’s Head, Syracuseand Connecticut. The word is rapidly spreading as many callers with unwanted horses state that all other facilities are full or there is an extensive waiting list. In five short months we are almost at max capacity.

We will be hosting a Jamboree on November 15th at 1:00pmat The American Legion in Winthrop, NY. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to the care of all the new horses.
