URGENT- Message from the Standardbred Retirement Foundation - an emergency situation exists for our retired horses and immediate help is needed.   Anything you can spare (even as small as a dollar) from thousands of different horse lovers & supporters will help feed and care for these magnificent animals....!!!   PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TODAY....!!!   Urgent Message From The Standardbred Retirement Foundation   Harness Racing Alumni Show

Cream Ridge, NJ - 3/27/2020 - Covid19 is causing the Standardbred Retirement Foundation,(SRF) to cancel, not postpone, three of its very impactful fundraisers.   It is also being slammed by the need for Americans to quarantine, keeping adopters away during the busiest time of the year for finding homes.   More than 400 trotters and pacers are under the SRF's expense and care. What this means is that there will be no funds to feed every one of its horses. THIS IS AN EMERGENCY SITUATION.   SRF desperately needs to reduce its expenses and the number of horses now. It has already reduced staffing by 80%, This extremely productive, 31 year old organization does not receive any regular funds from any source, its support comes primarily from people who care about this beautiful and majestic animal that has given so much.   The following is needed as the first effort to be able to keep all 403 horses fed and to avoid drastic action:   SRF is asking for Standardbred farms, and breeders with pasture to take in a one horse or more. It can be permanent or temporary. It seeks pleasure farm owners who have room to help by either providing a home, foster home, or pasture. Please can you squeeze one in for any period of time. Use of farms with grassy pasture for horses to graze help with the cost of feeding. Foster homes are such a huge help. SRF has everything set up on the website for those who can help with foster homes. This is the perfect time to be a foster, the weather is good, and you can quarantine at your your own farm. Foster a horse Horse sponsorship, this will keep a horse with SRF fed during this crisis; it can be in any amount for any period of time. Sponsor a horse Tax-deductible donations will make it possible to get through this crisis, feed the horses and provide emergency care, if needed. Donate More than 200 Standardbreds are living out their lives with SRF, many had sizable earnings in the past, have lost their adopted homes, and are now considered too old to live a life under saddle in a new home. SRF is requesting all racing owners and breeders whose horses the non-profit is helping, to help SRF now by sponsoring their horse, even if it was years ago that their horse came into the program. Make a donation so care can continue. To get this accomplished, SRF asks all to share its needs and encourage others to help.   Some horses just need a patch of grass, feed and general care, others require a little extra TLC, some are on the rebound from emaciated conditions and need more attention, some are already riding, others need a little training. Their ages range from 3 to aged, are mares and geldings, and are located in about 12 different states. They all have good brains, and great manners. Here is a link to a list of the horses in need, horses are being added until the list is complete.   These are desperate times that could never have been predicted. Every one of these horses is in imminent danger of SRF having to take other measures to get this manageable and must count on good people to reach out to help. On average, the cost per day just to feed the herd is approximately $4,000.   The link below provides information on adoption, fostering, sponsoring, and how to make a tax-deductible donation to help these horses. Please email to offer help, calls are being taken at 609-738-3255, but responses may be slow so please be patient.   To adopt, foster, sponsor, or make a tax-deductible donation please go to AdoptaHorse.org, for questions please email SRFhorsesandkids@gmail.com, or call 609 738 3255. This an EMERGENCY.    Standardbred Retirement Foundation provides humane care and services for horses in need of lifetime homes, and in crisis, through rehabilitation, training, adoption, life-long follow-up or life-time sanctuary, and offers therapeutic equine opportunities for children and adults.   SRF is a 31 year old registered non-profit organization, donations are tax-deductible.     Tammy Cailliau Phone: 609-738-3255 Email address: SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com

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.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation  

Cream Ridge, NJ - 2/14/2020 - On the last day before the truck leaves for the Canadian slaughterhouse, a little more than half of the trotters and pacers are safe, 16 are still in desperate need of homes.   The Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) has enough tax-deductible donations to have the USDA tag removed from each of the remaining without homes, that will confirm they will NOT be shipped for slaughter tonight. There is now $615 in donated funds left to help each horse. What that means is, should the next desperate thing need to be done, Veterinary euthanasia funds are raised. To avoid euthanasia this is what is needed:   Homes - to offer a home please contact SRF and go to the website to fill out an application. Sponsorship - $350 per month, any part of this, or $3885 a total for one year per horse. Foster homes - give one a temporary home while also helping to find a home. These horses truly know when someone is saving them and show it in so many ways. They are very well mannered and have wonderful temperaments.   SRF will continue to seek help over the holiday weekend. Next Wednesday, February 19, 2019, a review of home offers, sponsors, fosters, and additional financial support will be done. Should it remain that they are still in need, sadly SRF will not be able to take on this responsibility, monetarily or management-wise. Euthanasia by a licensed Veterinarian will then be the last resort. SRF has been hoping that harness racing organizations would step up to help, but none have.   To offer a home, sponsorship, a foster home, contact Tammy at 609-738-3255 or email SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com. Tax-deductible donations will provide more time for SRF to seek homes and avoid euthanasia. To donate please go to SRF's GoFundMe, or AdoptaHorse.org. Someone is also on call all weekend.   SRF is Different: * Is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S. * Helps Standardbreds exclusively, young, aged, injured, neglected, or abused. * Is feeding and caring for more than 400 trotters and pacers. * Is providing lifetime homes for more than 200 retirees and provides lifetime follow-up for every adopted horse, never to be at risk again.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation    

Cream Ridge, NJ - 2/12/20 - In the midst of the efforts to help horses so desperately in need as they stand in a kill pen, tagged to ship for slaughter, there is a smile to be had. The block buster movie, Little Women, stars all Standardbreds, and most were rescued from the kill pen, landing safely into the hands of the Standardbred Retirement Foundation.   Instigator, R C Kettle Chip, Expensive Dude, Bay Sign, and The Last Hurrah who collectively earned nearly $800,000 are stars again.   www.AdoptaHorse.org SRF is Different: * Is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S. * Helps Standardbreds exclusively, young, aged, injured, neglected, or abused. * Is feeding and caring for more than 400 trotters and pacers. * Is providing lifetime homes for more than 200 retirees and provides lifetime follow-up for every adopted horse, never to be at risk again.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation    

Cream Ridge, NJ - 2/10/2020 - Seventeen of the 27 Standardbreds remain at risk to ship for slaughter, thankfully, they have been given a 4-day reprieve. A deposit from the funds raised as of this morning was used to negotiate more time for Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) to help them.   Leaving them in a kill pen longer is very concerning, as they are crammed in and fighting for something to eat. It's fairly clear in the photo that this one horse is not only in need of such, but he is also frightened. Their deadline is now Friday, Feb. 14, 2020, ironically it is Valentine’s Day.   As of today, the following is needed to help the remaining 14 to be saved from that horrific fate at the Canadian slaughterhouse, these are:   1. Individuals to contact the kill pen and privately purchase and offer a good home. The contact information can contact them directly at 717-360-8558, and can Paypal the funds to them directly for the kill pen fee CROTZ92@gmail.com   2. HOMES, to offer a safe place to land for LIFE, or a foster home, contact Tammy at SRF 609-738-3255 or email SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com.   3. Horse sponsors full or partial, an individual or a group or team sponsorship will provide SRF with the expense of care based on $350 per month.   4. Help for one which includes the fee for the kill pen, shipping to quarantine, quarantine, hoof and dental care, and ship again to SRF approximately $4,500 -5,500. Contact Tammy at SRF 609-738-3255 or email SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com or visit our website at www.AdoptaHorse.org to donate.   5. Tax-deductible donations enable SRF to take one or many into the program. WIth nearly 400 under SRF's care and expense today, taking on new horses cannot be done without financial support.   6. Without any homes, rather than shipping for slaughter, euthanasia may be an option, not an option anyone wants to consider, but sadly better than the alternative. The average cost per horse to purchase from the pen is $700, ship to a facility, a few days of board, and euthanasia by a licensed Veterinarian along with renderer fees ($500) is $1500. This is an absolute last resort.   "This can't keep going on," says Judith Bokman, Executive Director. Either the racing industry steps up and creates a safe way for every one of these animals starting from the day they are bred, or this will fall into the hands of legislators and the general public who will leave racing in the dust.   To help these horses in such a desperate situation with a tax-deductible donation, or any other way noted, contact Tammy at 609-738-3255 or via email at SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com, use SRF's GoFundMe, or the website, and see the list of horses on the website at AdoptaHorse.org.   SRF is Different: * Is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S. * Helps Standardbreds exclusively, young, aged, injured, neglected, or abused. * Is feeding and caring for more than 400 trotters and pacers. * Is providing lifetime homes for more than 200 retirees and provides lifetime follow-up for every adopted horse, never to be at risk again.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation  

Cream Ridge, NJ - 2/05/2020 - It’s a matter of a few days before more than 100 horses, now in Shippensburg, Pa., meet their horrific end at a Canadian slaughterhouse. Some appear to be in foal; others are tossed away broodmares; a few are in great shape; others in dire need of a meal and veterinary attention; a few are elderly and have served racing then worked hard in rural areas until they were worn out and have given up. In this group, 27 Standardbreds have been identified.  The Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) is speaking for these horses, asking for help for them.   Homes are needed for these horses. People who wish to help a horse directly from the pen can contact them directly at 717-360-8557, and can Paypal the funds to them directly for the kill pen fee CROTZ92@gmail.com, or can call SRF for guidance.  SRF is overloaded right now with 401 trotters and pacers.  Several remaining ones from the Christmas holiday rescue group of 53 are still in quarantine recovering from a respiratory issue. SRF has no space available at any of the boarding facilities they use (SRF does not own a farm),this is why homing them right from the pen is so urgent. SRF can look for other facilities, but will need funds to manage any horse it may take in.  Funds needed are for paying the kill pen, shipping to quarantine, quarantine, Veterinary care, rehabilitation and rest, and time to find homes.   A top Standardbred breeding farm, located outside of the state of Pennsylvania, is pledging $10,000 to help. With the total of  $75,000 needed, should no homes step up directly, SRF will locate other facilities to board and provide the care and homing needed. SRF is asking everyone to help whether it is $5 or $5,000 every dollar will make a difference.   A GoFund Me is set up by clicking here however, to avoid the high fees of GoFund Me,  tax-deductible donations can also be made through the website at https://www.adoptahorse.org/donate, or by calling SRF at 609- 738 3255. The list of horses and other information is at this link.www.AdoptaHorse.org     Nothing short of a complete overhaul of racing, and maybe an act of Congress is going to stop this process in racing where the end of the lives of these horses is slaughter.  These animals cannot wait for that possibility and are depending on you and everyone to offer help during this emergency, you are all they have. The deadline for these desperate horses is Monday evening, when the truck leaves for Canada.   www.AdoptaHorse.org   SRF is Different: * Is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S. * Helps Standardbreds exclusively, young, aged, injured, neglected, or abused.   * Is feeding and caring for more than 400 trotters and pacers.   * Is providing lifetime homes for more than 200 retirees and provides    lifetime follow-up for every adopted horse, never to be at risk again.     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.     Media Contact:   Tammy Cailliau Phone: 609-738-3255 Email address: SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com

Cream Ridge, NJ - 12/27/19 - When the Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF), called Michael Goldberg of Sarasota, Florida, the winner of our 2019 harness racing raffle, the amazement in his voice was clear and so great to hear. We love to make that call!   A long-time supporter of SRF, Mr. Goldberg is also a racehorse owner since 1992 racing at Foxboro, Ohio and other tracks, and has horses today in training in NJ. He shared his feelings on the importance of SRF's work several times on the phone. Thirty minutes later he called to say the Prix trip is his choice, and in his wonderful way of supporting these horses, he will be making a gift to SRF. Mr. Goldberg certainly understands that these horses never stop serving, and giving back is so important. His support and generous gift is very much appreciated.   SRF is grateful to everyone who supported this important fundraiser. Tickets were still being sold up to the drawing time by telephone and email, it's very popular, especially with the Disney options. Proceeds from this fundraiser assists in the cost of approximately $3,500 needed every day to feed and care for the horses under its expense.   SRF is Different:   Is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S. Helps Standardbreds exclusively, young, aged, injured, neglected, or abused.

The new fosters will be recognized in the upcoming newsletter once they are approved as foster homes.   7. SRF's horses live long healthy lives in fields with sheds, so preserving hay by using hay racks saves a great deal and keeps the bossy horses from the sweet and meek so all can keep their bellies warm this winter! 2 hay racks are needed - $249 each THANK YOU to Howard Ouriel, PD   8.GIFTED! Be SRF's special sponsor for the Elitlopp fundraising trip in May; This makes our very important fund raiser possible. $4000. THANK YOU to Marc and Marcy Goldberg and family in memory of one of the greatest horses of all time, Arch Madness.   9. A pedicure! When these noble warriors come out of the rural communities in-particular, after working so hard plowing fields and serving as transportation, it is horrifying to see their feet (and their teeth). Not one angle on a foot matches another, and all are sooo long in their toes yet have heels about 4 inches high, like Stilettos. It’s just $35 to trim once, but most need several trims to get them right. Would you bring us the blacksmith for one or more, please, we have 396? THANK YOU to Jean Bokman, and Sue Skipper.   10. Just like us, horses’ teeth need regular care and the older ones need it more often. Their teeth break and fracture, wear down, move, and loosen. Please help one or more in any amount $40-$160 depending on the actual need of the horse sitting in that dreaded chair.   11. GIFTED! A new Server - we are an Apple (Mac) based non-profit and are in need of a new server due to upgrades on software. The Apple Mac Mini fits our needs perfectly with a 3.6Ghz 6-Core Processor, lots of storage (for all those gorgeous horse photos!), and a super fast processor for running our databases. Cost range from $1200 to $1600 depending on storage purchased. THANK YOU to Lisa Stith.   12. Wormer, my goodness with 396 we go through a lot of wormer. Boehringer-Ingleheim is generous during the year, but we cant expect them to donate it all. When on sale and in bulk the cost is about $1.99 to $5.50 each. Eqvalan, Zimectrem or anything similar that is Ivermectim paste, and any number of them is appreciated.https://www.statelinetack.com/Search.aspx?query=wormer   Need a gift giving idea? Sponsoring a horse is perfect! Who needs another ugly sweater anyway? Any amount monthly, or one time makes a great gift and if it totals more than $250 we will send an SRF sweatshirt to your favorite person.

Please don't assume someone else will help, these horses are in need and every day SRF spends approximately $3,500 just to keep them fed. Only 4% of SRF's funding comes from harness racing organizations, more than 80% comes from people like you who care. Thank you and we wish you happy holidays and the best of good luck in 2020!   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation
