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.
