Adoption Program, Inc. was founded in 1994 by a small group of
dedicated individuals and professionals who saw a need for a placement
service for non-racing Standardbreds. This placement service honors
and serves the people and horses within the harness racing industry
around the country, with special emphasis on Standardbreds in
Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. The American
Standardbred Adoption Program also serves as a rescue facility
and sanctuary for abandoned, abused, or neglected horses of all
breeds, and is listed by the Humane Society of the United States
as a humane equine rescue organization. Horses of all other breeds
are accepted into placement by ASAP, Inc.
A great deal of the
American Standardbred Adoption Program's efforts center around
educating young people about horsemanship and harness racing.
Youth programs focus on youth at risk and youth with disabilities,
offering ASAP's facilities on an ongoing basis for community service
or schooling involving horsemanship and riding or driving.
