Cream Ridge, NJ - 1/23/19 - The 35 harness racing trotters and pacers at risk to ship to the Canadian and Mexican slaughterhouses received enough support to by-pass a horrific end.   The Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) has either already moved most to safety or are scheduled to in the next 2 days. Those in need of veterinary care have received it already. The mare in foal has a wonderful offer from Fair Winds Farm in NJ to take her on to foal her, both mom and baby will then need homes.   Offers have been received and are being screened for experience, but this is a difficult match to make, therefore, other offers are appreciated.   Fair Winds will also take home the mare they had bred, Speed Week. They already have a few that were in trouble before and are now safe with them.   Morrisville College has reached out to help Sparkling Credit, the Celii family is helping the two they had bred, and Newhart will return to his family in Canada. A couple of other past owners have helped by paying to release the horses, but are unable to take them.   The greatest gifts have come from wonderful people who have offered homes and sponsorship, a long list that will be noted in the year end recognition.   Unfortunately, the youngest one, just 6, had suffered a fractured hip among other injuries and was humanely put at peace.   Home offers may fall through, and others, once screened, may not have enough experience, that will leave SRF in a bind, why more home offers and sponsorships are needed.   Thank you to all who have helped these vulnerable, needy horses.   You have changed their lives.   All 34 horses will be in quarantine for 30 days, in NJ, VA, and PA.   The facilities SRF uses have an open-door policy. Visitors are welcome.   Please email SRFHorsesandKids@gmail.com or call Tammy at 609-738-3255 to offer help with fostering or homing, to make a donation or visit AdoptaHorse.org.   Please email SRFHorsesandKids@gmail.com or call Tammy at 609-738-3255 to offer help with fostering or homing, to make a donation or visit AdoptaHorse.org.                               ‌             About Standardbred Retirement Foundation       Standardbred Retirement Foundation provides human care and services for horse in need of lifetime homes, and in crisis, through rehabilitation, training, adoption, life-long follow--up or life time sanctuary and offering therapeutic equine opportunities for children and adults.   Tammy Cailliau  

Cream Ridge, NJ - 1/21/19 - Eight harness racing trotters and pacers in need of homes are now tagged and on the manifest to ship to the Canadian and Mexican slaughterhouses. The Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) is pleading for homes, other organizations for help, foster homes, and sponsors to get them out of these horrific “kill pens”.   Down from 35 in need, the remaining 8 are:   1.    Rookthatiscastling - or Fire Island (waiting on confirmation) Likely about 14 yr old. Gelding 2.    First Season, 14 yr. old mare. May only be able to walk under saddle. 3.    Bonnie Caviar may not be identified correctly-kill pen volunteer did not have time, may be Spartan Justice, 11 yr. old (not sure if g or m yet). Appears sound. 4.    DG’s Turnaround, 16 yr. old mare about 16.1h, appears sound. (Listed as deceased on her registration but incorrect) 5.    Have It Your Way, 14 yr. old mare, 15.2 needs hoof care immediately, appears sound. 6.    Naomi Blue Chip, 15 yr. old mare, 15.1 mother of 4 babies who earned $250,000. Appears sound. Scared in the pen. 7.    Taylor’s Design, 18 yr. old gelding, big handsome trotter, sore in back likely due to pulling weight much heavier than able to. 8.    Walk Of Shame, 14 yr. old mare, appears sound, may be blind in right eye but she appears to see the world.   Party Lights 13 yr. mare, is injured and being attended to, she has dropped suspensory, she is paid for, has a sponsor, but she needs a home. She has a heart on her forehead. Funny Girl - safe but needs an experienced home for mom and baby due in April.   In these pens the horses are rarely provided for any of their basic needs, shelter, water and feed. The harsh weather has made things much more difficult, however it also gave these horses a few more days of hope for homes, but the deadline is today at 5pm. SRF is beyond full, and it’s not just the large number of horses under SRF’s care that is blocking the help, it’s the financial restrictions. SRF has no regular funding, not privately, publicly, or from the racing industry. Some people feel humane euthanasia is better than shipping hundreds of miles to the borders to be slaughtered, even if that was an option, it is beyond the financial ability of the SRF. It is approximately $500 for the veterinarian and renderer to put a horse at peace.    SRF and everyone who has taken a horse or has contributed to help these animals is begging for help for the remaining eight. Two thousand two hundred dollars ($2,200) is still needed for bail, and eight homes, however, if homes are not found for all, sponsorship will help. In general, a horse will cost SRF $2,400- $4,200 annually, any part of a sponsorship monthly or for a year will save one of these horses.   To offer a home, a foster home, to sponsor a horse, make a donation please call SRF immediately at 609-738-3255, or email Tammy at SRFHorsesandKids@gmail.com.                                 ‌             About Standardbred Retirement Foundation       Standardbred Retirement Foundation provides human care and services for horse in need of lifetime homes, and in crisis.

Cream Ridge, NJ - 1/16/19 - Several of the thirty-five harness racing trotters and pacers tagged to ship to slaughter have past owners and breeders stepping up to help them. They are paying the kill buyers to release their horse and several are taking them back home, but most are still at great risk to ship to slaughter.   For the past few days the volunteers at Save Our Standardbreds From Slaughter, (SOSS), active on Facebook and are associated with Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF), have been working around the clock trying to find past connections to help these horses. So many have no help at all and will be shipped to the Mexican and Canadian slaughterhouses in the next 48 hours. These horses need caring homes and donations to divert them from this horrific trip on Friday, January 18, 2019.   There is an article that confirms what is going on when these horses ship south. Many of them originated in the northeast but have passed from dealer to dealer, often not fed or watered and now being closer to Mexico would ship there. https://www.texasobserver.org/business-burying-horses-presidio/   The most urgent are the mare in foal due in April, Funny Girl, and two with injuries that are in need medical attention, a common occurrence in kill lots. One past connection to Naomi Blue Chip has informed SOSS in the past that they would like to find her and asked to be contacted if found, however, we are unable to reach them. Hopefully someone sees this and contacts them.   SRF will do all it can to help, but taking in more horses at this time will weigh further on its financial burden with 378 trotters and pacers under its expense and care. A spreadsheet is attached.   Those in the most urgent need of help, the mare in foal and those injured are highlighted in the darker shaded of red, but all the horses need help. These horses can be paid for and homed directly from the kill lot or through the help of SRF or SOSS; go to the SOSS page on Facebook for information or message them through Facebook.   You can also contact SRF directly, via email to SRFadoption@gmail.com, or call 609-738-3255 to offer a home or make a donation.   SRF asks for help from other organizations but they must have a strict and active policy of lifetime follow-up. Many of these horses are in Pa., NJ, and Kansas. Tax-deductible donations can be made on our website at AdoptaHorse.org or via Paypal. For questions, please call Tammy 609-738-3255.   Attached below is the most current list, you can visit Adoptahorse.org for a more up-to-date information as the hours count down.   Click here to see a list of horses at risk       Click here to see a list of horses at risk         ‌         ‌       ‌         ‌         ‌       ‌         ‌         ‌       ‌         ‌         ‌       ‌         ‌         ‌       ‌         ‌         ‌       ‌         ‌         ‌       ‌         ‌         ‌       ‌         ‌         ‌       ‌       ‌     ‌         [Caption]         [Caption]       [Caption]         ‌     ‌       About Standardbred Retirement Foundation       Standardbred Retirement Foundation provides human care and services for horse in need of lifetime homes, and in crisis.

Cream Ridge, NJ - 12/11/18 - The Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) raffle winner of the trip to the Prix d'Amerique in Paris or to enjoy a castle stay and ride in Ireland is Donna Wenskoski of Iselin, NJ.   When SRF shared the news she replied with, "You're kidding." That was repeated a few time until it finally made sense to her. A recent adopter, Linda Spoto, had bought the ticket for Donna, her co-worker, as a Christmas present, and Donna had promised to take her along if she was to win.   Forchu Linda Spoto, and her husband, Victor, adopted Forchu and Hopefull N from SRF, and live fairly close by. Lucky for the horses, Victor is retired and fusses over them a great deal. His farm may be the only one with horses, yet not a speck of horse manure.   The Spotos stop by the office on occasion with gifts for SRF's horses, halters, bits, lead ropes, and more. Being supportive of the mission, Linda thought it would be ideal to buy a ticket as a present, an idea that makes a whole lot of sense, as holiday shopping in these times is not an easy task.   SRF appreciates the kindness of the Spotos and that of everyone who supported this important fundraiser. Tickets were still being sold up to the drawing time by telephone and email.   Proceeds assist in the cost of approximately $3,000 every day to feed and care for the horses under its expense. Donna and Linda now have the delightful decision to make, Paris or Ireland.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation  

Cream Ridge, NJ - 12/10/2018 - Only hours left to purchase tickets to win a trip to the famous Prix d'Amerique race in Paris or to Ride in Ireland to benefit Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF).

There is a city sightseeing tour of Paris to the Arch of Triumph, Place de la Concorde, Eiffel Tower and more. Among other things, an airfare voucher up to $1,200, and tickets to the famous race, a cocktail party are also included during Jan. 24 - Jan. 28, 2019.   The Ireland trip for 2 includes a 5 day/4-night stay at a fabulous eighteenth century castle, up to $1,200 airfare voucher, and $200 allowance for airport transfer or car rental. Lessons or riding are included for beginners to advanced for three hours a day in many disciplines. There are 1,000 miles of trails through forests, and fields. The castle has a full spa, and other activities are available as well including golf. The dates can be decided at your leisure based on availability. Don't ride, then take lessons right there!   Every day SRF spends approximately $3,000 to feed the horses under its care and supports nearly 380 more horses than any other organization with Standardbreds. Also, different than any other organization, SRF has a lifetime follow-up program in place since 1989 so no adopted horse is ever at risk.   All raffle ticket sales support the 403 trotters and pacers SRF has under its full expense.

Cream Ridge, NJ - 11/27/18 -  Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) offers 10 of the 403 reasons to give back to the harness racing horses on this #GivingTuesday, and every day.   Donations are needed to meet our goal of $12,000 to feed our horses through the holiday season: 1. Because tomorrow morning and the days that follow, SRF must find a way to fill the grain buckets for each of the 403 trotters and pacers. 2. 95% of SRF's help comes from private donations.  3. On #Giving Tuesday, the cost to feed all for just that one day is more than $3,000. 4. 84 cents of every dollar is spent on the care of the horses. 5. SRF is different than every other organization:  It never relinquishes ownership so every horse remains safe in the event an adopter falls on hard times, or has a lifestyle change, and requires semi-annual veterinary follow up. SRF does not limit help to only adoptable or sound horses, or those under the age of 13. 6. SRF exclusively helps Standardbreds. 7. Breeding horses to race peaked 15-25 years ago and those still     gracing the earth are most likely destined for kill pens, or are with     SRF and need help. 8. Because even when an injured or sick horse in need of peace,     humanely, the cost is great ($500).   9. Because SRF is a 501(c)3 non-profit, gifts are tax-deductible. 10. Because SRF's endowment generates less than $300 annually and       needs a way to secure a future, even though it will in the next few       months it will mark 30 years of care for these noble animals.   Your generous tax-deductible gift, sponsorship of a horse, home to one or as a foster will change a life. Help us turn #GivingTuesday into #GivenCompassion.   Gifts may be made through SRF's website at AdoptaHorse.orgor directly by contacting Tammy at 609-738-3255.   For questions by email please contact SRFhorsesandkids@gmail.com.

Cream Ridge, NJ - 11/4/2018 - McCauley Bros. Feed - Standardbred Retirement Foundation's (SRF) Feed Bucket Challenge is a win! For every dollar donated during the challenge, McCauley's Feed offered to match up to $7,000 with their quality feed. Thanks to all the wonderful donors, the challenge was completed in a winning way!   The adopter of Old Friends, the 15 year-old son of Blissful Hall, stepped up in a big way to complete the balance needed of just over $4,000, more than half of the challenge. Old Friends was brought to SRF in August of this year to rehabilitate and to find a home, purchased through the volunteer efforts of Save Our Standardbreds from Slaughter (SOSS) Facebook page to avoid shipping to the Canadian slaughterhouse. He is one lucky horse.   With nearly 400 horses under SRF's expense and care this much-needed challenge gift from McCauley's Feed, a company that has been supporting SRF for nearly 20 years, has been a great help and is very appreciated. SRF extends its warmest thanks to all who supported, to the McCauley's Feed for all their wonderful support, as well as to Reynolds Hay and Straw, the local distributor in SRF's area.   Visit McCauley Bros. to find out more about our wonderful sponsor.   SRF is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S. It helps Standardbreds exclusively, young, aged, injured, neglected, or abused with feeding and caring for nearly 400 trotters and pacers in need of homes and are providing lifetime homes for more than 190 retirees and provides lifetime follow-up for every adopted horse, never to be at risk again.   Standardbred Retirement Foundation | AdoptaHorse.org | Judith Bokman   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation
