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.

Cream Ridge, NJ - 12/19/19 - The Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) is shouting, "Victory" in more ways than one. The 53 trotters and pacers at risk to ship to slaughter have been diverted to safety. Today, 12 of the 16 of the 53 that will come to SRF are loading (see photo) and will arrive at a boarding facility in Cream Ridge, NJ.   The first effort was to release them from the kill pen so none would face slaughter. That required raising funds to do so, encouraging people to take one directly from the pen, asking for homes, foster homes, and donations. Fifty-three is a very large number and no one could guess if it could be done or not. SRF and people who cared kept at it for days. It was accomplished.   Horses were privately helped directly at the pen once the information was posted and shared on social media and past connections were called. Funds were raised to pay the pen to release the others. Unfortunately, one died in the pen, and one was euthanized there, due to medical issues.   The plan was, because SRF could not take on anymore horses financially, if more homes did not step up, that Veterinary euthanasia would be considered, less inhumane than slaughter. If SRF was able to get to this point, the next effort was to avoid euthanasia. To make that possible SRF calculated what was needed to give each a chance so SRF would be able to take them in with the intent of finding homes for each.   Sadly, help was stalling late yesterday to fund what remaining help was needed for euthanasia, but one special lady was not satisfied with only their release from a horrible death sentence to then be humanely put to their end. Michelle Crawford, from Crawford Farms, went on a mission and contacted several owners, trainers, and a racetrack owner. Enough was pledged and these horses all now have been spared death. It is the first time that so many people associated with racing in these capacities stepped up together like this to make it happen. They should be able to hear the applause from so many!   Today, the12 of the 16 will arrive at SRF in late afternoon and be identified. The photo shows the first load on the truck. Their new name tags will be weaved into their manes, they will no longer be tag numbers. Each will have a general evaluation: temperatures checked, weight and general condition, eyes, bodies examined for injuries, fungus, ringworm, legs and hooves looked over, teeth reviewed, and their soundness and spirit observed. Should any need a veterinarian, one is ready to help. A blacksmith and an equine dentist will be scheduled for next week, but for now these horses will have the space to run in large 20-40 acre fields and just be horses.   Each one needs a home in the next few months to be able to stay within the funds raised. We must assume that a least a few will only be pasture sound. Support needed for lifelong care with SRF was not considered in the funds raised, but a gamble had to be taken to get them out and to avoid euthanasia. These animals have been through so much, given of themselves in so many ways, first racing, and for most, a brutal life in the rural communities followed. Loving homes are so deserving for each of them and we hope more wonderful people will welcome one into their lives.   SRF and everyone who helped in the many ways contributing to the freedom of these animals appreciates what was done. We call these horses and those who helped them “The Blessed Bunch”. Nothing could have brightened the holidays more. Those who donated can attest to how a heart feels from the power of giving.   The intent at SRF is that all horses get a home, not to have to live out their lives with a charity. SRF is counting on horses being adopted from this group, or one already with SRF. To adopt, please fill out an application on the website at Adoptahorse.org/application. To make a contribution to those horses that may find themselves without a home and living out life under SRF’s expense and love, or to sponsor a horse you can make a one-time donation, monthly general donation or sponsor a horse as well. SRF will post arrival photos on its website at AdoptaHorse.org and send one more Press Release showing their steps into their day of freedom.   For any questions please use srfhorsesandkids@gmail, or call Tammy at 609-738-3255.

Cream Ridge, NJ - 12/15/19 - The Standardbred Retirement Foundation's (SRF) 12 Days of Giving comes at a difficult time with the 53 trotters and pacers at risk for slaughter.

Cream Ridge, NJ - 12/13/19 - The Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) is sorting through offers of help for some of the 53 horses tagged to ship to slaughter which is expected to be Monday, December 19, 2019. As of today, it appears that 25 are still in need. This is being confirmed as a few were purchased directly from the kill pen. The kill pen also pulled some from this group to ship anyway, as their other loads of horses were short and they wanted to fill the space. SRF is awaiting confirmation.   Homes are desperately needed, whether a horse is purchased directly from the pen, or through SRF. Without homes the only help SRF can provide will depend on the available donations. SRF has 376 trotters and pacers already under its expense, it cannot take on any more financial obligations. This is a very difficult decision especially when looking at the fear in the eyes of these horses.   How to Help:   Take one from the kill pen directly: There is a price on most of the horses, prices vary from $650-$800 Their soundness is unknown, but typical of the breed, they are extremely well mannered, very sweet, and have wonderful temperaments. The list of horses is on our website at Adoptahorse.org. To take directly send payment through PayPal to CROTZ92@gmail.com, then text (717) 360-8557 to arrange pick up of bailed horse (please no harassing the pen, let's just help these horses right now).   There is room at a boarding facility for quarantine, and board for those who wish to take a horse, but please do not expect that SRF can take the horse in the future. Please help with full understanding of a commitment to an animal. Email SRF for the facility's information.   - Contact SRF to offer a home by using this link for an application to adopt.   -Offer a foster home at no charge to SRF; use this link SRF Foster.   How Tax-deductible Donations Will Help... Donate to Rescue   ...SRF can then incur the expenses for horses that may have a foster home offer, some may include paying the kill pen, transport, quarantine, dental care, Veterinary care, hoof care, etc.   ...to purchase remaining horses without homes and provide rehabilitation due to feed and care neglect, acute or chronic soreness or lameness.   ...SRF can take on another only if a full year of expenses are donated, this averages $4,500. If several people help as sponsors this can be accomplished. If any of our current horses have new sponsors, we can take another in as well. Sponsor a horse   Should horses be left without homes, and donations are not able to cover expenses for a year, humane euthanasia may be an option, as this is less inhumane then shipping for slaughter. If it comes to this SRF will release a statement and ask for help.   These horses have given so much. Every bit of help for them will change their lives. To contact SRF with any questions please use srfhorsesandkids@gmail, or call 609-738-3255.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation

Cream Ridge, NJ -  The Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) learned of fifty-three Standardbreds crammed in a crowded pen to be shipped for slaughter. One has already passed away at the pen for unknown reasons.   Each horse needs a home, someone in their past to help, someone new who will give one a soft place to land. Without help each will endure a brutal trip to the unthinkable end at the Canadian or Mexican slaughterhouse. It is expected that without help, this will happen on Monday, December 16, 2019.   There are a few possible ways to help these animals of which nearly every horse is in Pennsylvania. A few appear to be nearing their last days as they are elderly, several are sound and of a great age to ride and enjoy as pleasure horses, and others are acute or chronically sore or lame and may need rest or humane euthanasia.   How can you help: (Please read before you go to the link of names.)   1. Take one from the kill pen directly: There is a price on most of the horses, prices vary from $650-$800 Their soundness is unknown, but typical of the breed, they are extremely well mannered.To bail directly send payment through paypal to CROTZ92@gmail.com, then text (717) 360-8557 to arrange pick up of bailed horse (please no harassing the pen, let's just help these horses right now). There is room at a boarding facility for quarantine, and board for those who wish to take a horse, but please do not expect that SRF can take the horse in the future. Please help with full understanding of a commitment to an animal. Email SRF for the facility's information.   2. Contact SRF to offer a home by using this link for an application to adopt   3. Offer a foster home at no charge to SRF use this link SRF Foster   How tax-deductible donations will help: Donate to Rescue   1. With donations SRF can then incur the expenses for horses that may have a foster home offer, as there are expenses involved, some may include paying the kill pen, transport, quarantine, a Veterinary care, hoof care, etc.   2. There are several in the pen in need of a Veterinarian due to feed and care neglect, acute or chronic soreness or lameness, and at least two have injuries that need immediate attention. Usually every one of these horses will need a farrier, worming, and TLC.   3. There are a few in the group that Veterinarians will determine that humane euthanasia is kinder.   4. Should horses be left without homes, humane euthanize is an option, as this is less inhumane as shipping for slaughter. The expenses to help one would include: pay the pen for the horse, transport to a facility, Veterinary fee $150., and the renderer $350.   5. There are 376 horses already under SRF’s expense and care, therefore SRF can take on another only if a full year of expenses are donated; this averages $4,500. If several people help as sponsors this can also be accomplished.   These horses have had the help of SRF and volunteers for two days already. Some horses have been helped from individuals who care. Past owners, breeders, and trainers were contacted, and some have stepped up. As of today, here is the list of the 53 with updated notes: SRF Rescue   It is the holiday season which makes this hit the heart harder. These horses have given so much. Every bit of help for them will change their lives. To contact SRF with any questions please use srfhorsesandkids@gmail, or call 609-738-3255.

Cream Ridge, NJ - The Standardbred Retirement Foundation's (SRF) Holiday Fun at the Farm this past Saturday (11/16) hosted a large crowd of guests and offered much fun for all, but the big hit was Horse Plop Bingo.   When 11-year-old, Big Boy Toz, Dylan ( a tag number from a kill pen whose tattoo we cannot read), and 7 year old Cheyenne Western entered the Bingo ring, it took about four minutes to crown a winner. Each five-dollar donation offered a number on the Bingo grid in hopes that the horse would drop his plop right there. Arlene Santhouse, one of SRF's wonderful adopters was the winner of a $250 Amazon gift card!   War Cloud, a towering 17.2 hand gelding hung over the stall guard all day nuzzling every pair of eyes on him. Another strappy fellow, Northern Patriot, blind in one eye, did just the same. Riders from the Rockland County Mounted Police unit, who have SRF horses, brought their children and checked out a few new prospects. A few supportive racehorse owners joined as well, and what a loss for harness racing not to capitalize on the affection the general public has for these horses. The few owners in attendance saw that firsthand.   The firepit to keep warm, toasting marshmallows, the gift auction, roping demonstration, and the numerous horses shown under Western and English tack were all hits.   Numerous college students, regular volunteers at SRF; Delran, and Point Pleasant High School volunteers; and about two dozen other wonderful folks giving of their time made it all come together. SRF appreciates all the support for the event, donors, volunteers, and guests.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation
