The Barbaro Fund – Make the Difference in the Lives of Horses

Barbaro before the DerbyA devastating injury at the Preakness Stakes, the second race in the Triple Crown, shattered famous Thoroughbred racehorse Barbaro's right hind leg and all hopes of the highest honor in the world of racing.

The injury brought this amazing equine athlete into the international limelight, allowing him to show the world that his heart was even bigger than could have been imagined.

Barbaro spent the next eight months at New Bolton Center where he endured multiple surgeries to fix three bones shattered into more than 20 fragments.

Miraculously, the fractures healed and Barbaro was able to walk again, until he developed laminitis. The devastating condition would prove to be the only competitor that Barbaro could not best.

Pet Memorial Program

Hand in handThe human-animal bond is one of the strongest bonds that exists. Our animals sustain us in so many ways. They provide companionship, protection, and devotion while accepting and returning our love unconditionally.

If you've ever lost an animal that you love, you know that the loss is real and the grief can be overwhelming. Commemorate a beloved animal friend, or honor the loss of someone you love. It's a great way to remember those you love.
