Retired Thoroughbred AdoptionPensioned Whole Blood Adoption
Full-blooded retirement, rehabilitation and career
In Pennsylvania 501(c)3, TRRAC is a non-profit, thoroughbred shrine, emergency and after-care programme devoted to the secure retiring, rehabilitating and accommodating of thoroughbred racehorses when they have retired from their career, as well as thoroughbred stock requiring accommodation or a secure place to go when their owner can no longer take good care of them.
At Maui Meadow Farms, Pennsylvania's oldest fully-fledged thoroughbred ranch since 1946, TRRAC is a 65 hectare, quiet, family-run estate in Chester County, Pa. They come from all areas of our lives, from abusive and neglected backgrounds to people in urgent need of help with slaughtering and auctioning.
Our aim is to accommodate many different needs, mostly those who have little opportunity to find a secure home without our help. The TRRAC has many home needing horse, ranging from amusement to show-class!
Subsequent to a thorough submission procedure and a thorough on-site visit by TAA surveyors, it was found that each of these organisations has achieved or surpassed the TAA operational, training, equine maintenance administration, plant standard and service, and implementation policy and protocol objectives. They are now entitled to TAA funding to help provide day-to-day maintenance for retired whole blood.
When you think about taking a thoroughbred.....
When you are considering putting a retired thoroughbred racinghorse in your lifetime, you should consider this. American Association of Equine Practitioners has established policies to help vets and adoption groups successfully bring retired race horses into new homes and a new career. "Retired Pensioners of the Year: Policies for Equine Practitioners, Adoption Organizations and Horse Owners" provides an outline of the shared bodily challenge that some former race horses face and assists in formulating what is expected of a horse's ability in the years ahead.
Policies drafted by the Transitioning Subcommittee of the AAEP Racing Committee have emerged from a need voiced by equestrian rescuers and retirees at the Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit 2010. As well as the bodily assessment requirements, the policies contain estimates of cost-of-care figures from Canon, a nonprofit organisation that offers retired thoroughbred racing horses the opportunity for a new career.
The members of the AAEP Transitioning Subcommittee are Reynolds Cowles, Chairman, D.M.; Jay Addison, D.M.; Foster Northrop, D.M.; Mary Scollay, D.M.; John Stick, D.M.; and Carol Swandby, D.M.D.. Lexington, Ky., American Association of Equine Practitioners was established in 1954 as a non-profit organisation devoted to the well-being and well-being of horses.
AAEP, with over 10,000 members around the world, currently has more than 5 million owner members and is active in ethical matters, practical training practices, research and training in the field of vet medicine and the equity world. I wish you and your steed all the best,
