Get Accredited

The TAA is the only accrediting body in aftercare and reviews all aspects of an aftercare nonprofit during accreditation. We work with organizations so they can reach a high standard of operation.

Ways to Give

A donation to the TAA is supporting an infrastructure of 74 accredited aftercare nonprofits in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico that retrain, rehome, and retire Thoroughbreds.

Find an Organization

Operating with the highest standards, TAA-accredited organizations have 160 facilities across North America that offer adoption programs, rehab programs, sanctuary, and equine-assisted programs.
