Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Horse Welfare

Our organization operates programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement.

Our organization's primary activity is equine rescue, adoption & retirement.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) is a non-profit, tax exempt organization created to care for, rehabilitate and secure lifetime adoption of non-competitive racehorses, to ensure their proper care with follow up, and combine the needs of youth at risk and these horses in therapeutic equine programs to benefit both.

Volunteer Opportunities

Office And Event Support
Minimum Age: 18
Office support helps with mailings and filing. Event support is the various fundraisers and shows we go to promoting and educating people about SRF and to raise money to support the horses.

Barn Work And Horse Training
Minimum Age: 18
We always need help at our Cream Ridge, NJ training and rehab facility. Help to clean stalls, groom and ride our many horses in training for adoption.

Wish List Items

Grant Writers
SRF has a staff of 4 that oversees and manages 217+ horses awaiting adoption, and manages the follow-up on more than 3000 adoptions twice a year. Grant writing takes time and we are eligible for many, but need help.

Foster Homes
With the expense of rehab, retraining, feed, hay, vaccines, transportation, medical attention and every day proper care, SRF needs help. We provide full care for 217 horses at any given time and over 140 are companion only who need help from good foster homes and sponsors.

Our NJ facility is leased. We have about 70 horses at a time. The rest of our horses are at our various boarding facilities. Consolidation would be a savings in many ways.

Horse Guardians
SRF follows up for life on all of our adopted horses twice a year. Occassionaly we run into an issue and need one of our horses to be spot checked to insure they are receiving proper care. Since SRF adopts throughout the US we need special people in each state willing to help if ever needed.

Horse Sponsors
SRF currently has over 140 companion horses that will be with us for life or until we find that special adoptive home willing to care for a companion only horse.
