The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation launched its '31 Days, 31 Horses' campaign May 1 in an effort to find sponsors for a horse for every day of the month. During the month, the TRF will feature a new horse every day in the media and donors will receive public recognition for their sponsorship donation. Donors will also receive updates throughout the year on the horses they sponsor.
“It's like owning a horse even if you don't have space to keep one,” said TDN Publisher Sue Finley, who sponsors Renaissance Bob at the Wallkill Correctional Facility. “For the cost of your daily caramel macchiato at the local Starbucks, you can do your part for Thoroughbred aftercare, and have a meaningful impact.”
Horse Sponsorship has several levels of giving, starting at $250 a year, donors have the option to choose the amount they give and also may choose to give in monthly installments. Horse sponsorship directly impacts the horses in the herd by helping TRF to care for them for their lifetime, and enabling the organization to continue with rescue, adoption and TRF Second Chances programs.
“Horse Sponsorship is especially for people who love horses and is a wonderful opportunity to support these deserving horses in a personal and meaningful way,” commented Jennifer Stevens, TRF's Director of Horse Sponsorship.
