Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) is a non-profit, tax exempt organization providing humane care and services for horses in need of lifetime homes, and in crisis, through rehabilitation, training, adoption, lifelong follow-up, or lifetime sanctuary.

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 organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Horse Sponsors
SRF currently has over 190 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.

Any Item For Auctions And Raffles At Events
Concert/show/event tickets, travel vouchers, horse supplies/tack, art or any item we could use for live auctions or in baskets for our raffles.

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.

Grant Writers
SRF has a staff of 8 that oversees and manages 390 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 390 horses at any given time and over 190 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.

*Guardians are organizations on the Equine Welfare Network that demonstrate a commitment to public transparency and accountability by their willingness to publish and share extensive data about their operations. The Guardian Designation is awarded annually.
