The United Pegasus Foundation (UPF) is a
501(c)(3) non-profit Organization founded in 1994.

We are dedicated to providing a safe haven for Thoroughbred horses coming off the racetracks.


UPF has become one of the largest thoroughbred retirement, rehabilitation and adoption organizations, saving hundreds of former racehorses from an uncertain destiny by giving them a humane and deserved retirement.

With an operating cost of approximately $350,000 a year, UPF works constantly on raising funds thru grants, our sponsor a horse program, yearly fundraisers and the generosity of donors to perform its mission and maintain its well-equipped farm with a carrying capacity of 100 horses.

 

UPF HORSE OF THE MONTH

PAT THE BEAR

Pat the Bear is one of the kindest horses we have come by. He has been on our watchlist for about a year, not only because we had heard of this horse at the track that shouldn’t be running with ankles like his. As Pat the Bear began to protect himself, he slipped lower and lower in the claiming ranks. It was after his last race that we were able to get him. He was not donated to the foundation, we actually had to pay the owner money to get him off the racetrack. It is this reason that the horse is categorized as a rescue. Pat the Bear raced 28 times and earned $143,195. His condition makes him a permanent retiree. He is in need of sponsor who has as much of a heart as he did on the track. We are proud of this rescue as we believe that it saved the horses life and possibly prevented a catastrophic injury to horse and human athletes. He has earned a retirement and are proud to have him as part of our program.

Goal: Hoping to find a sponsor.

 

 

HAY HAY HAY

Our on going efforts to raise funds to purchase hay to feed our very large herd of horses.

Each truck and trailer load costs, as of now, approximately $8,500.00, which will last about 8 weeks.

We are continuing our fund raising efforts over the winter months, as the loads of alfalfa will increase in price.

Please help by donating towards our hay fund.
