Accessibility Statement for Safe Haven Thoroughbred Rescue

Last updated February 21, 2021

Organization and Introduction

Safe Haven Thoroughbred Rescue owns a website known as Safe Haven Thoroughbred Rescue located at

Safe Haven Thoroughbred Rescue strives to ensure that its website is inclusive and meets website accessibility guidelines in order to help ensure the website is easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities, with the strong belief that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence.

Accessibility Standards Applied 

Safe Haven Thoroughbred Rescue continues its efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of its site and services in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible, and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities.

The standard of compliance we work to meet is WCAG 2.1 Level A/AA.

To achieve this level of accessibility commitment we work with a Certified Accessibility Specialist who advises us on the areas in need of improvement and remediation.

We do not use accessibility overlays or widgets.

Conformance Status 

We are in the process of developing a new website and going through the recommendations made by our Accessibility Specialist.

  • Web pages can be navigated without the need for a mouse by tabbing with a keyboard.
  • The site has not been formally tested with screen readers, but ongoing efforts are made to improve the screen reader experience. This includes updating our forms.
  • Safe Haven Thoroughbred Rescue tries to only use accessible themes, plugins and third party applications. However, since the developer of the products has sole access to the source code to make any accessibility modifications, there may be areas that we are unable to remediate.
  • We are aware that some forms may not be fully accessible. We are testing our forms and donation application process for any barriers for persons using assistive tech.
  • Videos, if there is audio, will be closed captioned and transcribed.
  • Our PDF’s are remediated for accessibility.
  • Despite efforts to make all pages and content fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution, or the WordPress theme itself prevents remediation.
