Volunteer Opportunities


DIrector Of Veterans Program
Thoroughbred Placement Resources, Inc. (TPR) is a charity that helps retired racehorses find new lives when their race careers end. One day a Wounded Warrior - one of America's Heroes said to me that they relate more to Thoroughbred racehorses because they have so very much in common. That statement resonated with me and we developed our Hero Horses Program for veterans, Wounded Warriors, Active Service men and women and their families. The program works within the work we do to help retired racehorses on a scenic farm.

We now need someone to manage and run the program. I cannot do it as my responsibilities lie with the horses and the original mission of TPR. We have a lot of people interested in helping with the program, but we need a Team Leader. Please take on this wonderful opportunity or spread the word so we can continue this very important program for those who have given us so much.
