Millstone Township, NJ - April 23, 2018 - Since Friday, April 20, 2018, of the 21 horses weighed and tagged to ship for slaughter, Mr. Mystic N was helped by his past owner, Eric Goodell, and trainer Joshua Green, and is being returned to Mr. Goodell; Jeremy Sharky was helped by Linda Maine, and being returned to her; DC Piggy Bank left to go to another organization in Indiana; Captain is going back to his owner Dr. Claude Gedreau in Canada; Forward Action has found a loving home in Kentucky by a dear friend of SRF;  two others have been offered a home at a rescue/sanctuary in NJ, that will be confirmed today. Two adoption applications have been received and will be screened. That leaves 14 others still in need of homes, and donations.
 
Funds have been raised for all expenses to help 2 more horses, but they do not have home offers. Should SRF need to find a place on their roster they can afford to do so with these donations, but by securing homes for them, donations can go to others in great need.
 
"We have asked for an extension beyond Tuesday's deadline, but we worry that the kill buyer will again pull a few from this group to fill his truck, should he have empty space," noted Paula Campbell, SRF's President. "This effort needs a collaboration of good, kind and generous people to get it accomplished. These horses worked hard when racing and most have had a miserable life afterwards. Slaughter is unacceptable."
 
The Standardbred Retirement Foundation(SRF) is presently paying for the all the care, board, and medical needs on 390 horses. It is stretched, and concerned about its financial situation, and without a farm of their own, the concern is even greater. "Since 1989 we have managed to follow-up every horse in the program for life, secure more than 4,000 adoptions, and care for those still not homed," shares Judith Bokman, SRF's Executive Director. "  We need so much more help to give these animals a little dignity. It shocks me that we have survived this long. 

If it wasn't for a few small bequests over the years we wouldn't be here today trying to help these 21."
 
Here is how you and SRF can save these horses:
 
1. If you choose to take a horse back that you bred, owned or trained or wish to help a horse, SRF will assist with the facilitation. The list with their prices is available in the group of photos.

2. For horses with a home offer, but the home is unable to pay for the horses and the shipping (often to rural parts of the US), SRF will collect donations to help.

3. For a horse without a safe place to go, if donations cover all expenses, the price of the horse, shipping to quarantine, then shipping again to a boarding facility for rehabilitation and retraining for adoption and several months of board, SRF will consider whether it can take on the responsibility of another horse. This is approximately $3,000.

4. For horses with no help at all, the controversial option that is being considered is humane euthanasia. The cost is, the kill pen's purchase price, in addition to shipping to a facility, the veterinarian and rendering, approximately $550.
 
To offer a home, make a tax-deductible gift to help SRF Facilitate a horse to a home being offered, or to send a gift for SRF to afford taking on one, contact SRF 732-44604422 or SRF.Horseandkids@Adoptahorse.org
