Cream Ridge, NJ - 2/20/2020 - According to the Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF), which has been diligently working to save nearly thirty trotters and pacers from slaughter, a few wonderful new homes have been offered and three very kind sponsors have changed the lives for two others. Sadly, Princess Lola, and Thro Time, both who had homes, now have nothing, their offers have fallen through.
 
The thirty-one-year-old non-profit says fourteen are still without homes and it cannot financially get through the year with all of them in need. SRF is now in a tough position to avoid euthanasia for these animals; either the number of horses must be reduced with new home offers, foster homes, sponsors, or a means to raise $14,000 is a must.
 
Where does that leave things?
 
Judy Bokman, SRF's Director said, "We have been in the generous pockets of our good friends and we are exhausting them with our pleas. A few racing folks have helped with donations for horses they had owned or bred, even trained, or groomed. Racing is a multi-billion-dollar industry, but only one significant gift came in from other racing constituents. We are pleading to everyone, especially in the racing community to help. A charitable family fund, a significant relationship with a company that will step up, or an employer may even offer charitable giving opportunities. Every home, foster home, sponsorship in any amount, and donation makes the difference. People make things happen; we are asking everyone to make this happen."
 
The remaining horses in need are: Nod Ya Head, Victory Chief, Bamboo Hanover, Powerfulball, Princess Lola, Pleasemesleazy, Thro Time, Beat My Drums, Love's Last Storm, Logans A Winner, Airy Heir, Oxford Sport, Hoosier HH King, Hoorayforvacation.
 
To help please contact Tammy Cailliau at 609-738-3255, SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com to offer a home or foster home, sponsor a horse, or make a tax-deductible gift so SRF can provide for them and avoid euthanasia for every one of these noble animals. To donate please go to AdoptaHorse.org.
