Welcome to Equine Encore Foundation
Equine Encore Foundation is a non-profit (501) (c) (3) corporation whose mission is to provide a retirement home for racehorses, both Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses, who have served the industry well but whose racing careers have come to an end and who deserve to hang up their racing plates and bask in the Arizona sun. As with all rescue operations, the major challenge is funding. We receive support from the industry with our major supporters being CARMA, Thoroughbred Charities of America, Second Call of Turf Paradise in Phoenix, AZ, The Arizona Racing Commission, the Arizona Quarter Racing Association and the Pima County Horsemen's Association. Support also comes from grateful racehorse owners and fans of the sport. We are working to establish a "social security" system for all racehorses through the racetracks but this is a difficult task. We are hopeful that horse lovers in general and racehorse lovers specifically will help us with their tax-deductible donations. Donations can be made online or mailed directly to us.


To provide a retirement home for racehorses (both Thoroughbred and Quarter Horses) who are unable to pursue their racing careers because of age or injury. They serve the Racing Industry well but the time has come for them to hang up their racing plates and enjoy their golden years in the Arizona sunshine.

The Brennan Equine Welfare Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation has again come to the rescue of Equine Encore Foundation! Our property was under siege from hungry free range cattle who were breaking down our fences and eating our horses' hay. Thanks to a grant received from these folks, we were able to electrify our outside perimeter fencing and FENCE OUT THE COWS! Both the people and the horses at Equine Encore Foundation are very thankful to The Brennan Equine Welfare Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation for saving our hay! 
Through the years we have received support from Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) and we're happy to report that we have again been blessed with a grant from this sterling organization! Funding from TCA goes into our operating account allowing us to provide feed, veterinarian & farrier care and to maintain our facility. THANK YOU TCA!
