September 2014 Update: Navajo Horses Rescue and Recovery Mission

Meet Manay (means
Meet Manay (means 'love')

We are pleased to report more great strides of progress for the Navajo Horses Rescue and Recovery Mission (NHRRM). The number of lives saved continues to grow thanks to your kind support. WFLF recently rescued 40 Navajo Mustangs, including several pregnant mares, two studs and 21 orphan foals, ages 2-6 months old, all of whom had lost their freedom and their Native homes in the wild. The foals had become orphans during the US government funded roundups, when their mothers were sent off to slaughter.
We are thrilled to report that five of the pregnant Navajo Mustang mares have foaled since spring and into summer; the newest little filly was just born last week. Your continued kind support has enabled us to provide for these mothers’ and babies’ needs—everything from the nursery and foaling enclosures to special supplements, to veterinary medical care, to farriers and hay, and beyond.
Wild For Life Foundation delivers an important public service by providing a place where orphaned, distressed, injured, or displaced horses and burros get a second chance at life and are able to thrive in natural habitats. Your continued monetary donations make it possible to provide the vital care and living space these victimized Mustangs need. And for each mustang that is sponsored, we are able to save another distressed horse and meet its long term need for quality care and safe housing.
WFLF’s Navajo Horse Rescue and Recovery Mission (NHRRM) is an ongoing effort to rescue and re-home wild horses, burros and orphan foals that are at risk of slaughter or that have been victimized by the Navajo roundups. Our gentle, soothing rescue and rehabilitation process is allowing rescued fillies and colts to heal in calm and safe environments. As rescued horses heal, their successful transitions to educational Ambassadors create a lasting impact on the public for more humane and positive care of horses.
The number of animals coming into our program has grown exponentially since we began, from just a few animals annually to more than one hundred each year. We feel not only to continue meeting the needs of these victims, but to accelerate our efforts and do more. But, at WFLF rescue is just the beginning of a long, dedicated endeavor to provide the best quality of life for these abused and homeless victims. Although we realize that not all horses can be saved, our commitment is to do our utmost for all incoming animals. And though we have met that challenge, this tremendous influx of animals due to a poor economy means that Wild For Life Foundation is constantly stretched in our ability to effectively respond to crisis. In the meantime, demand continues to grow for our lifesaving mission. While this is a good problem to have, we recognize that we must also continue to build capacity and expand our rescue program to meet theses exploding community demands.
As part of WFLF's Western Regional Equine Preserve Project the WFLF is currently seeking sponsorship for land acquisition for an equine sanctuary/preserve and educational center in the Southern California area where we will be able to serve more of America's most needy.
The Wild For Life Foundation needs your continued support and respectfully seeks your assistance in sharing information about our mission with your friends and family. We can’t do this work without you. You make our healing and lifesaving work possible.
We thank you for your continued support of our work on behalf of the horses. Together we can make a huge difference now and for generations to come.

August 2-14 Update: Saving America's Horses is on the move

We are thrilled to announce that a series of Saving America’s Horses movie screenings will soon be launched at theaters and local community venues nationwide. Fans and collaborating organizations will be able to take part and help drive the success of the screenings through word-of-mouth, social media and ticket pre-sales. Dates and venues for each screening will be based on booking requests and availability.

Information on bookings and venues will soon be announced. Production team members are working behind the scenes to finalize preparations for this exciting development.

With YOUR continued support, funds are being raised to bring this extremely compelling film resource to more venues and to universities, schools and libraries and onto television/ cable and DVD. We continue to receive requests from people around the country to present SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES far and wide.

Supporters and fans will soon be given the option to add special meaning to their donations by designating that their support will aid in promotional costs, including live appearances, introductions, discussions, calls-to-action, and Q&A’s.

Saving America's Horses continues to raise awareness and compel people to action. Although the defunding of the appropriations for USDA inspectors in U.S. horse slaughter plants is back in place, America's wild and domestic horses continue to face this gruesome fate after being sold at local auctions around the country, then shipped for slaughter in Canada and Mexico. No horse will be safe until federal protection is put into action.

SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a powerful podium with a dynamic reach to animal lovers worldwide. This intelligent exposé also reveals how the public has been misled by several government agencies and corporate interests that run over the laws that are supposed to protect the horses, people and the environment.

SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES was successfully released to theaters in LA and NYC in December. Funds received through GlobalGiving and other sources helped to make this groundbreaking milestone for the horses, a reality. SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES also qualified for Oscar consideration which brought the issues impacting America's horses into the mainstream.

Vital funds are being raised to put this powerful film in front of as many people as possible. Your continued support can help make this happen.

The critic reviews for this film describe it as "A provocative rallying cry for justice and integrity" - THE QUAD CINEMA, NYC "Outstanding" - LA SPLASH MAGAZINE "Impassioned" - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER "Shocking statistics… "A searing indictment" -VARIETY "Filled with facts" - NY TIMES “A broad and balanced spectrum of opinion through interviews with veterinarians, trainers, policymakers and celebrity horsemen including Paul Sorvino and Willie Nelson, among others” - ABOUT.COM “Unpacks a multi-layered conspiracy - fueled by a parade of misinformation- against the survival and proliferation of horses” - LA TIMES

We are honored for the opportunity to raise awareness for SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES through the GlobalGiving fund raising platform.

Thank you for your continued kind and generous support for this important project.

We are pleased to report great strides of progress for the Navajo Horses Rescue and Recovery Mission (NHRRM). The number of lives saved continues to grow thanks to your kind support. In October we saved 17 orphan Navajo foals, ages 2-4 months old. They had been rounded up and sold for salvage after losing their Mothers to slaughter during the U.S. government funded Navajo roundups. In November we saved four more orphan foals, ages 3-6 months old. They had been abandoned on the range when their Mothers were captured and shipped to slaughter. In December we saved 17 more Navajo Mustangs including several fillies, colts and pregnant mares. They too had been captured and if not saved, were destined for slaughter.
