PA Racehorse Rehoming, Rehabilitation & Rescue (PARR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit equine welfare organization that takes in, cares for, rehabilitates, retrains and rehomes Thoroughbred horses who have previously raced or been in training to race (occasionally other breeds and non-racing horses as well). We also work to educate the community about ex-racehorse (OTTB) abilities, talents and inherent value, thus helping unwanted horses and those no longer able to perform up to the standards of their previous connections, to find permanent loving homes. PARR also maintains a lifetime sanctuary for unadoptable or permanently high maintenance/special needs horses.
PA Racehorse Rehoming, Rehabilitation, and Rescue is a Non-Profit 501(c)3 Organization that helps ex-racehorses find new homes & careers after the racetrack, rehabs and rescues horses in need, educates the public of ex-racehorses talents and helps high-risk unwanted pets find new loving homes.
We are run by a group of animal loving volunteers who have life long experience in the industry and are industry professionals. We have an equine veterinarian, racehorse trainers, marketing/design team, and other board members that all have life long experience.
We started this program as a Facebook Page to network ex-racehorses and it has grown into a successful program that has been approved for Federal Non-Profit Charity Status under 501(c)(3) as of May 2014. We offer full transparency as we know how many programs out there have given programs like this a bad name. None of our members receive a salary. Any funds that come in go to our expenses for the animals and what it takes to care for them.
We do this for our love of the sport, love of the horses, and love of happy endings when we help a horse or dog find a new career!
