    I can and will provide a temporary home for a horse that needs it. I have a 16 stall barn and 20 acres and only 3 horses right now. Two of those are looking for new homes as well, I don't have the means to go to PA and get them, but if someone has a few (3) that need a place to stay while homes are found I am more then happy to offer up my place, and also spend some time working with them a little bit as well. I am in NC and I know it's a bit far, but just want everyone to know it's here if you need it.
    If you don't have anything nice to say about someone, come sit by me.

    Its one ...or the other.
    As I understand it, Gill is allowing him to use Elk Creek for whatever he claims. Maybe those good folks who keep an eye on that place could take a peek? BTW In PA just what constitutes an approved facility?

    There is no inspection as long as it meets all applicable codes..plus Elk Creek is private and I think this time arround NO ONE is going to just drive in.............

    New Pennsylvania Adoption Program a Success

    The partnership between the Pennsylvania Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association and New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program is fully up and running. The program started taking horses in November and to date has taken in 24 horses.

    Ten of the 24 have successfully been adopted into new homes. The program, established by the Pennsylvania HBPA, offers a good option for racehorses at the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in need of retirement and placement into new careers.

    “We were in need of a program for our retired racehorses,” said Todd Mostoller, executive director of the Pennsylvania HBPA. “We chose to partner with New Vocations due to their many years of experience in running a racehorse adoption program. One of the keys to a financially viable racehorse retirement program is to get the horses adopted into new homes. New Vocations has become the expert and we appreciate their willingness to share their expertise and manage our program.”

    The Pennsylvania HBPA, Penn National Gaming, and the Pennsylvania Owners and Breeders Association have all made donations to support the program. Ongoing funding will come from a $10 dues assessment for each starter at HCPNRC.

    The program is housed at Foxfield Farm, which has locations in both Oxford and Reinholds, Pa. “New Vocations mission is to rehabilitate, retrain, and rehome the retired racehorses, and Foxfield Farm greatly compliments our efforts,” said New Vocations program director Anna Ford. “They have both a reputable layup and equestrian facility, which are crucial to helping the retired racehorses transition properly into new homes and careers.

    “The support for the program has been amazing,” she added. “I think the Pennsylvania HBPA, Penn National Gaming, and the Pennsylvania Owners and Breeders Association should all be applauded for their support. This type of program is greatly needed. There is an overwhelming amount of horses in need of a place to go once retired. Although we are still in our infancy stage we have made good progress in a rather short period of time.

I know while the driveway was covered with snow and ice that no one had driven on it, not at the groundskeeper's house nor to the barn. There were never tire tracks past the gate. The only person that went there was someone who feeds the cats, he walked. That gate is horrible to push open. I just brought the last cat I'm going to trap there, sadly I just can't get inside past that stupid heavy gate. I hope someone does go in there soon, hope they sell it. It's so creepy at night especially when the wind blows. I know that there was a mamma cat at the house but I've never seen her. I'd love to get her so she stops making babies and I guess I'd have another barn cat, like I need another. I'm going to try to make this one I brought home from the clinic adoptable, she's been friendly and handled.

    Does anyone want to give a home to the deaf cat (super sweet girl) and her buddy a tortoise shell, petite cat who is shy? I need to wrap up this Elk Creek cat rescue. I found homes for a few.
    I wish I could have helped you out there Susan with taking in some of those animals, unfortunately, im just not in a situation at the moment where I could have.

    Sadly, Team Gill cared nada about the animals left behind to starve, but then again, they cared little about the hundreds of horses they destroyed and then disappeared....so why expect them to care about their barn cats/dogs.

    I just saw an article on this sale. PN owns 49% of the Md Jockey Club too. No moss is growing under their feet. So, they bought it to pay themselves back. (?)

    On the rescue --- sadly, many people have been turned away. Their horses arent sound and suitable for sale, even if they meet eligibility. No lumps, bumps and limps need apply -- fractures and suspensory's, forget it.

    I will give credit due where its deserved, and there is good being done here, unfortunately, its not across-the-board helping those that need it the most.

    Hopefully, this issue will continue to be on the table looking for some resolution. Trainers pay their racing fee for services...if the horse is hurt in the race...... its... SOL.
    Its not in someone elses backyard anymore....... your Pres brought it home.

    That's good to know thanks.

    Adamo has been seen prowling around a Grantville farm that he was looking to buy. Thankfully that didn't happen either but his sneaking around and going in horse stalls with nobody around was most unwelcome and resulted in his being thrown out of the place.

    In other late breaking news......
    Did anybody hear that a certain well known high profile PN trainer has been seen at David Wells' house??????

I think the light tortie is very young, she's petite and sweet and of course our deaf girl is gray.

    Now I'm actually hoping for indoor homes, even easier to come by than barn homes.

    Thank you for even considering trying to help. So the only ones now are the ones that could go as house cats. I wish I could have gotten the mamma by the caretaker's house.
    Bless you for rescuing and caring for the cats, Susan. I'm on the other side of the country and can't take any, but what you're doing helps mitigate what the Gills of the world do. Thank you. ♥

    Well, Laurie, some of us know of what's going on only through this thread, so please share!

    I haven't been stabled at Penn in 11 years so I was waiting for the locals to chime in. All I know is what was in the press release. Paul Jenkins is out as racing secretary. He retired but it remains to be seen if some of that retirement will be spent somewhere unpleasant.

    Also the court refused to dismiss the Gill/Adamo lawsuit -- so it will go forward:

    That was totally uncalled for and insensitive, Laurie. I didn't know anything had happened at Penn until this morning, but even if I did, YES, we're talking about cats. Geesh, it was just a couple posts. Apparently some of us think cats' lives are important, too. What a shame you so easily blow off that concern as well as the important work Susan's doing.

    I'll keep you and your kitties in my thoughts and prayers, Susan.

    This was never the right place to talk about cats in need anyway. The bulk of the forum members don't look at this forum let alone this thread. And it used to be the place people could go to for breaking news so I was pointing out that that obviously isn't the case anymore. If you want to place the cats put them in the giveaways forum like everybody else does. That is where people go when they are actually looking for something. Not buried 2400 posts into an unrelated thread.
