November 1, 2019 – The Thoroughbred Education and Research Foundation (TERF) is pleased to award Equine Advocates $10,000 to be used for educational purposes. Equine Advocates’ mission is to rescue, protect, and prevent the abuse of equines through education, investigation, rescue operations, the dissemination of information to the public and through the operation of a horse sanctuary for slaughter-bound, abused and neglected equines.

Hundreds more will receive this education by the end of the year in alignment with TERF’s mission to support and promote equine education and research by supporting organizations that are educating the public in the proper care of horse.
