Wild for Life Foundation’s (WFLF) Navajo Horse Rescue and Recovery Mission (NHRRM) is a lifesaving program which provides emergency rescue and placement services for wild horses, burros and orphan foals that that have been victimized by roundups or found in life threatening danger. They come to us traumatized, shattered, desperate and betrayed. Through our Rescue and Recovery Mission we provide lifesaving aid and care for an average of one hundred wild and domestic horses and burros annually. With us they find love, quality care, safety, compassion, dignity, trust, hope and a new beginning.

Through this program we saved over forty five imperiled Navajo Mustangs, ages 6 weeks -5 years old, including several pregnant mares and many orphan foals. Sadly they were on the verge of shipping to slaughter after being captured in New Mexico (NM). We evacuated them out of NM, provided for their urgently needed veterinary medical care and secured safe harbor under the Wild For Life Foundation Mustang Recovery Center, thanks to the kind and generous support of people like you.

The Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) has stepped up in troubled times and saved hundreds of America's horses and burros who had fallen victim to brutal government sanctioned roundups and to America's cruel slaughter pipeline, and other forms of cruelty like starvation. WFLF has also rehabilitated and facilitated placement for over 125 rescued equines into new homes and private sanctuary settings just over the last couple years or so.

However at WFLF rescue is just the beginning of a long, dedicated commitment to provide the best quality of life for the wild horses and burros that come into our sanctuary program. We are dedicated to assuring their lifelong safe harbor, which requires continued financial support from caring people who want to make a difference and have the means to donate. It takes all of working together to assure they receive the care and protection they need. 

Through GlobalGiving, with your continued kind and generous support we’ve raised $2480 through 74 donations to date, toward our crucial goal of $10,000 which is helping to keep these sacred sentient beings safe and healthy.  A lifetime of care for wild horses and burros can be up to 30 years or more per equine. With emergencies constantly needing attention across social media, yesterday’s emergencies are often forgotten and yet sanctuary programs like ours continue to need help to do our lifesaving work.

Wild for Life Foundation is an all volunteer 501 c3 charity and we rely 100% on donations. Your continued kind support enables us to provide everything from veterinary medical care, to hoof care, to nutritional hay and feed, to safe habitat spaces and enrichment. Indeed the 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 peacefully.

The Wild For Life Foundation seeks your assistance in sharing information about this important cause with your friends and family.  Will you share this message with just five of your friends?

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 safe and natural sanctuary environments becomes tantamount to their survival as a species. America’s Wild Horses cannot be reproduced once they are gone.

The vast challenges facing America’s wild and domestic equines and their natural habitats are immense. Through your generous contribution of time and resources toward WFLF’s lifesaving mission you will be taking an active role in assuring the preservation and protection for America's wild horses and burros for generations to come. The Wild For Life Foundation needs and respectfully seeks your support. You make our healing and lifesaving work possible.

Together, we are their voice, and they need to be heard.

As always we thank you for your support for this important cause. 

Sincerely,

Katia Louise, President

The Majority of people have no idea what's really happening to America's wild horses and burros. Just last month we felt the impact of the American public who was shocked and up in arms in response to a vote by the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) Advisory Board, which recommended EXTERMINATING over 45,000 innocent wild American Mustangs and Burros who have been brutally rounded up and are currently held wrongly under encampment. The BLM was quick to respond with flowery statements, leaving the majority of people with no idea that the lives of 45,000 wild horses and burros remain at risk.  

Wild for Life Foundation’s (WFLF) Navajo Horse Rescue and Recovery Mission (NHRRM) is a lifesaving program which provides emergency rescue and placement services for wild horses, burros and orphan foals that that have been victimized by roundups or found in life threatening danger. They come to us traumatized, shattered, desperate and betrayed. Through our Rescue and Recovery Mission we provide lifesaving aid and care for an average of one hundred wild and domestic horses and burros annually. With us they find love, quality care, safety, compassion, dignity, trust, hope and a new beginning.

WFLF recently saved over forty five imperiled Navajo Mustangs, ages 6 weeks -5 years old, including several pregnant mares and many orphan foals. Sadly they were on the verge of shipping to slaughter after being captured in New Mexico (NM). We evacuated them out of NM, provided for their urgently needed veterinary medical care and secured safe harbor under the Wild For Life Foundation Mustang Recovery Center, thanks to your kind and generous support.

Through GlobalGiving, with your continued kind and generous support we’ve raised $1915 through 62 donations to date, toward our crucial goal of $10,000 which is helping to keep these sacred sentient beings safe and healthy.  A lifetime of care for wild horses and burros can be up to 30 years or more per equine.

Wild for Life Foundation is an all volunteer 501 c3 charity and we rely 100% on donations. Your continued kind support enables us to provide everything from veterinary medical care, to hoof care, to nutritional hay and feed, to nursery and foaling enclosures to safe natural habitat spaces and enrichment. Indeed the 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.

We recently set up equine nursuries for a total of seventeen pregnant wild Mustang mares and incoming orphan foals, of which six colts are now ready to be gelded, and soon there will be three more.  Gelding (castration) of an equine is done by a competent licensed veterinarian, under general anathesia. Our costs to provide castration ranges between $295 to $500 per equine. Other crucial medical care costs include treatment and care for injuries, transportation, nutritious hay and grains, and quality housing where they can live in peace and safety. For example, our cost to replenish essential medicine and first aid supplies averages $795 every three months. It takes 43 tons of nutritious hay at an average cost of $11,700 to provide two months of nourishing meals to the 80-100 equines we continue to care for. (43 Tons = 780 bales of Hay @ $15.00 per bale X 780 bales = $11,700).

Wild for Life Foundation’s (WFLF) Navajo Horse Rescue and Recovery Mission (NHRRM) is a lifesaving program which provides emergency rescue and placement services for wild horses, burros and orphan foals that that have been victimized by roundups or found in life threatening danger. Our gentle, soothing rescue and rehabilitation process is allowing rescued Mustangs to heal in peaceful safe environments. As rescued horses heal, their successful transitions to educational Ambassadors create a lasting impact on the public to assure their protection from roundups, slaughter, abuse and other forms of animal cruelty.

At WFLF rescue is just the beginning of a long, dedicated endeavor to provide the best quality of life for victimized horses. We are dedicated to assuring the forever safe harbor of all rescue horses coming into our program, which means seeing that their housing, feed and care is provided for the lifetime of each equine. The Wild for Life Foundation needs your continued support in order to aid these and other victimized wild horses in need.

We implement very specialized medical care and handling procedures for these untouchable wild horse calls to avoid causing added stress or injury to the animals and to avoid injury our medical providers. Oftentimes the utilization of prescription sedation is required and must be administered by a licensed veterinary medical doctor. Providing this kind of quality care for wild Mustangs is costly and our expenses to save, house, feed, and care for these victimized wild Mustangs have added up to tens of thousands of dollars.

Wild for Life Foundation is working around the clock to help assure and provide the forever safe harbor of wild and domestic equines. We are an all volunteer 501 c3 charity and we rely 100% on donations. 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.
