Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Old Friends is a sanctuary for Thoroughbred horses whose racing and breeding careers have ended, and who have no other place to go where their well being will be guaranteed. We are the only such organization in the country that accepts stallions, and every horse is given a safe environment where they can live out their natural lives.

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 is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.
