Introduction 

There are currently tens of thousands of mustangs in need of rescue in the US and in Florida the problem is worse than ever. People buy these horses for a very low price from auctions - while the horse is still completely wild. This results in the animals becoming neglected due to the lack of education and capacity to train them, which is why we work to intervene in these situations to properly rehabilitate and rehome these mustangs, to minimise neglect and abuse.

Report 

Aside from protecting and rehabilitating a number of mustangs, the bigger impact also includes all the educational work the centre does to bring attention and knowledge to the plight of the American mustang - a cause very few are familiar with. This project has the ability to help thousands of wild horses as they are able to rescue a new mustang as soon as a space becomes available after rehoming others. We have to raise $6586 to reach our target.

Introduction 

In the early 1900's, the wild mustang population in the US was estimated to be over 2 million. Today, there are only 15,000 left in the wild and about 40,000 in captivity in need of rescue.The Wild Horse Rescue Center rescues and rehabilitates mustangs who have been abused and neglected. The center subsequently adopts the horses into loving homes.

Report 

With a tremendously high success rate and decades of experience, WHRC rehabilitates these horses mentally and physically, trains and socializes them and then adopts them out into loving homes. This project has the ability to help thousands of wild horses as they are able to rescue a new mustang as soon as a space becomes available after rehoming others. $10 will feed a mustang for 3 days and $100 covers all costs for one horse for a month.

We have big hopes and plans for 2021. 

We hope to build our very own thrift store on our property, which would help bring in funds to our rescue center. 

We plan to reopen our international volunteer program again, which will also bring in funds to our rescue center. 

For the beginning of the year, we are planning clinics hosted on our property by our new trainers, which will be very exciting. 

We are also in the process of building our very own obstacle course so that we can offer obstacle clinics for the public.

Dear Supporters,

 

Wild Horse Rescue Center has been blessed with local volunteers since our international volunteer program came to a halt at the end of March due to COVID-19. We currently have 10 active volunteers who help with everything from cleaning stalls, filling waters, grooming, and training horses. These people have been a true blessing to keep the center going and keeping all the animals happy.

 

As September 20th comes, we will celebrate one year at our new property in Webster with an Open House. We will proudly show all the improvements we have made to the center along with all the new animals that have arrived. This day will also be a fundraiser to help bring in money for our animals, and there will be live demos by our president and founder Diane Delano, along with many other fun activities for the whole family.

 

The latest improvements include our new education center. A few weeks ago, we purchased a portable building that we are currently preparing and decorating to be our future place where we can take visitors to learn more about the wild horses and what we do at the center, along with the history of WHRC. 

 

We are looking forward to the fall, as the weather will start to cool down, which will allow for more work with the horses and a cooler environment for our volunteers to work in. We are also planning a Halloween event and a Thanksgiving event in the fall to help bring in funds and to reach out to more people. We are so excited to keep working on our new property and so glad to show it to all our wonderful supporters. 

 

With Gratitude,

Dear Supporters,

 

Due to the coronavirus, all of our international volunteers had to leave WHRC in the middle of March. This sudden change brought stress to us since all of our funding left, as well. WHRC has been relying on funds and help from the international volunteer program since 2013, and now we found ourselves without it. This has forced us to think outside the box when it comes to fundraising. 

 

We held a T-Shirt fundraiser on Bonfire where we sold T-shirts. This was successful, and we hope to host another one in the future!

 

We also reached out to local newspapers and radio stations, and we were in two different news articles in the Daily Sun in the Villages, and in one article in the Orlando Sentinel. We were also on a radio show on Real Radio. We got a great response from all of these!

 

As times have changed at Wild Horse Rescue Center, we still carry on with our daily routine of caring for all the animals, just now with a few less people. We have received so much help from all kinds of ways to keep us afloat during this crisis, and we are sure we will make it to the other side standing. When this crisis is over, we are hoping to build our education center, museum, and tack store in the loft above our barn, which will give us new opportunities for ways to bring people to our center. 

 

Thank you to all our fundraisers, supporters and donors!

 

With Gratitude,

 

USA Wild Mustangs
