What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The greatest challenges are : -developing regular income to support the horses under SRF's expense that are passed over for adoption; -an endowment that will afford SRF the means to protect current horses and those that will come back to SRF in the future from adopters no longer able to provide good care; -creating income to help other horses in need; -stopping the slaughter of horses; -getting the racing industry to address the business model which causes the slaughter of the horses; -educating those in the rural communities who use these horses with disregard to their being an animal, teach them how to properly care for a horse, and divert the horses they "use up" from being auctioned and sold for slaughter.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Rescue-Rehab-Train-Adopt-Follow-up

To keep Standardbred horses from slaughter, rehabilitate them, find loving homes AND follow-up their homes semi-annually until each horse passes so no horse is at risk again, and to provide care for those passed over by adopters. Today, this year 2019, SRF has 374 horses under its expense and care.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We would like to create an alternative to inhumane slaughter.
We would like to help as many horses as possible while helping to change the current practices.

Help more horses before they get to inhumane slaughter.

In 2017, 550 horses were taken off the slaughter line and rehabilitated, some were adopted, some were humanely euthanized due to catastrophic injuries, some are still with SRF under its expense and care passed over by adopters due to age or injuries. We hope to continue but it is based on contributions and the mightiness of volunteers.

-More owners and trainers from the track call SRF to help their horse.
-SRF has received requests from those in the rural community to take their horses when done using them.
-We have created a FaceBook page, SOSS Save Our Standardbreds From Slaughter which has generated much of the fundraising for the slaughter bound horses as well as adoptions and foster homes.
