View Full Version : How to find good home for retirees (PennNational)

Can someone tell me the best place to advertise, get the word out for giveaways? I have listed them on the giveaways here but didn't have much luck. One is sore and the other doesn't want to run. They need to go ASAP because owners are no longer paying -

CANTER PA does a lot of Penn horses. I got 2 PennNational horses from CANTER PA.

You can post on the boards over there. Lots of traffic, many who might be able to direct you to further placement resources.

Supposedly Marlene Murray and her RACE group is barking for funds. I hear she has only taken possession of less than a dozen horses since her inception but she keeps asking for the cash. Contact the HBPA and go from there.

Marlene has helped facilitate taking horses off of the track who have needed financial help. I do not think she has the facilities for physical rehabilitation and retraining but she has stepped up to the plate financially many, many times for horses at Mountaineer, Penn National and beyond. She had always been willing to help whenever I was trying to prevent one from going to Sugarcreek. She would be a good one to contact for references or to give you suggestions. There is also the Horse.com list available. Also contact Mid-Atlantic Horse Rescue, Bev Strauss is wonderful and can likely give you some help, at least as far as listing the horse for you on her site.
