Breedings Needed To Benefit New Vocations
New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program is currently organizing its 16th Annual
Stallion Auction to be held through OnGait.com Feb 10-14th, 2014.
“This is a difficult time for unwanted horses, and a successful stallion auction is essential to our ability to handle the large numbers that need us,” said Executive Director Dot Morgan.
New Vocations annually offers hundreds of former racehorses a safety net through rehabilitation, retraining, and placement in carefully screened and monitored homes.
“We take these horses, break them to ride, and care for their needs until a qualified adopter
can be found,” said Morgan. “Then we educate the adopters on the idiosyncrasies of racehorses, answer myriads of questions, encourage them through problems, and offer training guidelines.
And we take the horse back when the adopter gets a divorce, loses a job, relocates to an
apartment, changes interests, or simply no longer wants the expense! This is no small
feat! We must have help, lots of it. But the results are outstanding!
We adopted 18 Standardbreds in November alone!
“The stallion auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year. If you have a breeding that’s not
going to be used, please consider donating it. Or if you know someone that’s not using
their share, tell them about our need. Generating dollars is the ultimate goal so if you
don’t have a breeding, think about a year end contribution.”
New Vocations is a 501 (c) 3 charity so donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
FMI email email@example.com or call (937) 947-4020. Donations can be made through
our website at www.horseadoption.com or mailed to New Vocations 3293 Wright Rd. Laura, OH 45337.
