Our Cause
“Prevent A Rescue”

“Wouldn’t you like to stop the suffering of a rescue, prevent the need to rescue, and save lives?”

Our Vision
A Prevention Culture

This culture emphasizes the building of life skills in at-risk populations, thus reducing the need to rescue.

Our Mission Statement
Bridging Gaps by Building Skills

Our mission is to bridge learning gaps through the building of life skills. We use the
empowering and self-enlightening nature of the Thoroughbred breed to teach key life skills. 
Our comprehensive awareness and education campaign focuses on prevention to attain our goals
and make the cultural change necessary to realize our vision of a prevention culture.

Our Humane Education Goal
Social Equality through Animal Welfare

Teaching life skills through a comprehensive in-class and hands-on
Humane Education curriculum using animal welfare models that include Thoroughbreds.
