Helping to secure the futures of the Turning for Home retirees is easy! If adopting one of our beautiful horses is not in your plans, then there are many other ways in which you can support our efforts.
We also receive donations from the general public, which range from $10 to well over $1,000. In addition, many companies offer matching gift donations that are made by their employees. Every donation that we receive is used to assist our horses, especially since surgical care and rehab for just one horse could be over $5,000 by the time he is adopted.
When you are making a donation, you help our horses in so many different ways, including:
$2,000 – Surgery to remove chips in a knee or ankle or put screws into a fracture. These surgeries, done for us at cost, help insure a horse’s soundness for a new career
$500 – One month of care at one of our partner farms, which includes feed, turnout, rehab or re-training, and plenty of TLC
$125 – New shoes or a set of spring or fall shots
$100 – Shipping from Parx Racing to one of our partner farms
$25 – One year’s worth of worming medicine
After making your donation, don’t forget to check with your employer’s human resources department to see if it sponsors a matching gift program. In many instances, companies will match the amount of your gift!
