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 operations, education, horse health care management, facility standards and services, and adoption policies and protocols.

Ways to Give

A donation to the TAA is supporting an infrastructure of 70 accredited aftercare nonprofits in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico that retrain, rehome, and retire Thoroughbreds. Since 2012, more than $13.8 million has been granted to accredited aftercare organizations that have cared for more than 7,800 horses.

Find an Organization

Operating with the highest standards, TAA-accredited organizations have 160 facilities across 28 states, Canada, and Puerto Rico. These organizations offer adoption programs, rehab programs, sanctuary, and equine-assisted programs. Search our list to find one in your area.
