Racehorse Retirement, Rehabilitation and Placement Program
Over the last few years the racing industry has put much needed focus on the aftercare of thoroughbred racehorses. Thankfully, many racehorse retirement programs have been put in place to give owners and trainers a place to donate their horses to give them the very best chance to have a successful second career.
The Keen's not only support thoroughbred aftercare but founded their own retirement program in 2008. Remember Me has been a 501(c)3 organization since 2009 and gained accreditedation from the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance in 2015. Remember Me not only gives our owners confidence to know their horses are safe but accepts horses from trainers and owners from all over the country. Remember Me has also assisted in large scale breeding farm seizures and many interventions to slaughter through kill pen rescues.
Remember Me also cares for 2 permanent residents who are not adoptable. Yeah Me Do turned 33 this year and Be Bop Baby is 19. She is one of the lucky survivors of the 2012 Many, LA Seizure. Please consider making a tax deductable donation or becoming a memeber of Team Restart. You can find more information on the
2001 Texas Horse of the Year Lights On Broadway was found on a truck bound for slaughter. He was purchased by a group of horse lovers and sent to the Keen's to be retrained for another career. Lights On Broadway was the inspiration for Remember Me and the organization was formed to help remember our retiring horses.
Remember Me currently has retired racehorses available for adoption who have been rehabiltated and retrained.
If you support racehorse rescue please consider placing us on a monthly donation schedule to help us continue to support the retirement and retraining of retired racehorses.
This program is totally supported by people like you who care about horse welfare and oppose slaughter.
