by Return to Freedom Inc. , (DBA) American Wild Horse Sanctuary


As you gather with your loved ones this holiday season, consider a gift that feeds and provides complete care for nearly 400 wild horses and burros for a year. Return to Freedom's multifaceted approach protects the freedom and diversity of America's wild horses. The sanctuary provides educational programs, reunites wild horse families, safeguards their quality of life--with medical care and lifetime sanctuary. RTF advocates for policy reforms to protect their brothers and sisters on the range.

Feed and care for 400 wild horses and burros by sustaining Return to Freedom's Wild Horse Sanctuary for a year. Instead of using population management such as birth control, America's wild horses on our public lands are part of an aggressive and costly ongoing capture and removal policy -separating them from their families & social bands and put in government corrals at risk of mass euthanasia. Help us provide forever sanctuary for those we can, educate, and advocate for solutions on the range.


Return to Freedom's mission to change the future for America's wild horses and burros comes through our multi-pronged approach. People, experiential learning, resources, and our minimally invasive management model are the key drivers to build a foundation for wild horse sustainability. We protect the freedom and diversity of America's wild horses by providing sanctuary, education, advocacy, and conservation, while enriching the human spirit through a direct connection with the natural world.

Long-Term Impact

Our model restores habitat on rangelands, ends horse slaughter, reforms BLM's Wild Horse & Burro Program saving $24.4 m in taxpayer dollars/year by putting Return to Freedom's On & Off the Range Management Model in action. Builds a coalition of sanctuaries nationwide to respond to on the ground emergencies and care for entire herd groups and natural families forever--preserving historic strains, behavior, lifestyle, and lists the wild horse as native species connecting us to our equine history.
