New Bolton Center Receives TCA Grant

The Board of Directors of Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) has approved a grant of $7,175 for the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine (Penn Vet) New Bolton Center to support scholarship and hospital needs.

The grant was awarded for New Bolton Center’s work in upholding the TCA's mission, which is “to provide a better life for Thoroughbreds, both during and after their racing careers by supporting retirement, rescue, and research and by helping the people who work with them.”

TCA is a charitable organization that provides grants to nonprofit organizations that work toward improving the lives of Thoroughbred racehorses and the people who work with them. TCA offers the Thoroughbred industry and its supporters a way to give to one organization while helping many.

The organization distributes grants to four categories of organizations, including Thoroughbred rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, adoption, and retirement; education and backstretch employee programs; therapeutic riding programs that utilize Thoroughbreds; and equine research.

Penn Vet is one of the world’s premier veterinary schools and is the only school in Pennsylvania graduating veterinarians. The large-animal facility, New Bolton Center, in Kennett Square, Pa., includes the George D. Widener Veterinary Hospital for large animals; diagnostic laboratories serving the agriculture industry; and research facilities to determine new treatment and diagnostic measures for large animal diseases.
