We are pleased to report that the Navajo Mustangs are doing extremely well. Thanks to your continued kind and meaningful donations, these innocent victims who had lost and suffered so much are able to heal in a safe and peaceful environement, and rebuild family bonds.  Your donations are helping to pay for nutritious hay, quality veterinary care, Farrier care and quality safe habitats. 

The last of the surviving Navajo Mustangs rescued through the Navajo Horses Rescue and Recovery Mission arrived and reunited with their family members just in time for the 2014 year-end holidays.  Five of the mares were pregnant at the time of their rescue and have since given birth to healthy fillies and colts who have been able to run free in the wild horse habitat areas with their mothers and other Mustang babies in their age group. They have been learning invaluable socialization skills which are vital to their cultural survival as a species. It's amazing how much they've grown and how far they all have come.  The balance of the herd is enjoying their freedom in the adjacent multi-acre wild horse habitat areas.

WFLF is dedicated to assuring the forever safe harbor of all rescue horses under its umbrella, which means seeing that their housing, feed and care is provided for the lifetime of each horse. Rescue is just the beginning of a long, dedicated endeavor to provide the best quality of life for these majestic refugees. The Wild for Life Foundation needs your continued support now in order to aid these and other victimized wild horses in need.

Wild for Life Foundation, an all volunteer 501 c3 charity that relies 100% on donations is working around the clock to assure the forever safe harbor for these and other wild and domestic equines. Your continued kind support enables us to provide everything from veterinary medical care, to farriers, to nutritional hay and feed, to nursery and foaling enclosures to safe natural habitat spaces 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.

As the remaining number of Wild Horses in the U.S. nears extinction, education and appreciation through the protection and observation of Wild Horses in natural sanctuary environments becomes tantamount to their survival as a species. America’s Wild Horses cannot be reproduced once they are gone. 

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 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 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.

WFLF is thrilled to welcome twenty six rescued Navajo Mustangs to WFLF's natural habitat facilitiy in Temecula, CA. The last of the surviving Navajo Mustangs rescued through the Navajo Horses Rescue and Recovery Mission arrived and renited with their family members just in time for the 2014 year-end holidays.  Five of the mares were pregnant at the time of their rescue and have since given birth to healthy fillies and colts who now are able to run free in the wild horse nursery space with their mothers. They can learn important socialization skills which are vital to their cultural survival as a species in the wild.

PS - We are pleased to invite you to enjoy and share WFLF's "YEAR of the HORSE"!  It's an inspiring 1 1/2 minute video celebrating a magnificent year of equine rescue, sanctuary and education from the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF).  AND, it features many of the Navajo horses rescued under WFLF's Navajo Horses Rescue and Recovery Mission!

All the horses in this video were rescued from life threatening situations. Sadly they were all facing gruesome slaughter.  Many of them had also been brutally chased down by helicopters and ATV's during roundups, and others were victims of starvation, abuse and neglect.  But thanks to caring and compassionate people like you, we were able to save them all from these horrific cruelties.

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.

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.

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.
