Challenge

Over 8,000 horses and burros have been captured and removed from their Native homes as a result of the Navajo Nation roundups and they have been reportedly shipped for slaughter. The actual number of horses residing on the Navajo reservation is uncertain as there has been no census and reports are considerably varied. Horses are labeled as "invasive species" by the livestock industry as a means to justify their removal from the rangelands.

Solution

The Navajo Horse Rescue and Recovery Mission (NHRRM) provides the aid, and safe quality of life for rescued survivors from these roundup and slaughter expeditions. These victimized horses need your continued kind and generous financial support to keep them healthy and safe.

Long-Term Impact

WFLF's wild and domestic horse rescue and sanctuary programs together with our equine wellness enrichment programs and wild horse observation program provide multiple humane and compassionate opportunities for animals, humane education for the public at large, plus enrichment, and healing for rescue equines.
