Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Horse Welfare

Our organization operates programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement.

Our organization's primary activity is equine rescue, adoption & retirement.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
ReRun Thoroughbred Adoption pioneered the concept that when a Thoroughbreds racing days are over, they can successfully be retrained to pursue second careers in other forms of equitation while enjoying another 20+ years of companionship with their new adoptive families. Rerun was established in 1996 and is now currently celebrating it's 21th anniversary.

Rerun is now the largest Thoroughbred adoption and rehoming program in New York and the North East and is TAA accredited.

Horse-related programs:
Rerun Thoroughbred Adoption offers rehab, retraining and adoption thorough it's premier adoption facility located in central New York. In addition, our MD farm provides permanent sanctuary to a select number of horses that are unable to go onto second careers. Dave - NY's 2008 Turf Horse of the Year is one of many that call the MD sanctuary farm home. Rerun is a proud partner of the NYTHA's Take The Lead program and a member of the HSUS Homes for Horses Coalition in addition to being a TAA accredited organization. Rerun works alongside the NY Breeders and Development Fund and participates in activities with Cazenovia College and Cornell Cooperative Extension. Rerun was recently awarded a Forever Foundation scholarship to further education of it's staff and was designated as the recipient of the 2016 TCA Merit Award for the state of NY by NYTB.<br/><br/>Rerun also operates Moneighs For Rerun - Moneighs are paintings made by horses to benefit the Rerun Thoroughbred Adoption Program. They are collectible works of art personally painted by horses and are trademarked. In all, 15 Kentucky Derby winners, 10 Preakness winners and eight Belmont Stakes winners have taken part in the painting of Moneighs throughout the years but American Pharoah is the crown jewel of that collection as the first Triple Crown winner to create a Moneigh.
