Saving America's Horses Educational Release

by Wild for Life Foundation
Vetted

Thank you for your interest and support for our lifesaving Educational Saving America's Horses project.  We are pleased to bring you this update about this important effort.

A chief objective of WFLF’s Saving America’s Horses release project is to expand distribution to a wider population and to educate the public about the urgent global humanitarian crisis directly related to the critical need to protect the horses, people and the environment. Saving America’s Horses is created as a powerful educational social action tool for people who want to engage and make a difference while promoting wild horse conservation and preservation initiatives – the prevention of equine cruelty – and the support of returning wild horse and burro populations to the wild and the provision of lifelong sanctuary for equines in need.

In the absence of federal protection, over 100,000 American wild and domestic horses and burros are shipped across federal borders to slaughterhouses each year.  Wild horses and burros are rapidly diminishing in the wild and there is no guarantee of humane treatment for any equines in America once they are labeled for slaughter. Special interests are aggressively targeting American tax dollars to re-open horse slaughter in the U.S. The public health risks are many; the health and environmental impacts are grave.

Saving America’s Horses, the documentary film spotlights these urgent global environmental and humanitarian crises.  Just earlier this year we announced the release of the featurette version of the full length documentary ‘Saving America's Horses’. The powerful film contrasts shots of noble, beautiful, galloping animals with well-researched, shocking statistics and brings to screen a searing indictment of special interests and governmental agencies involved in the predatory exploits of America's horses. Viewers are now able to watch the film through Vimeo On-Demand in HD or SD on their TVs, phones, computers and tablets.

When public outcry against the BLM advisory board recommended killing of 45,000 wild American horses and burros reached mainstream level it caught the attention of some of the most powerful mainstream media outlets. The combination of these factors brought increased exposure to the systemic mistreatment and reckless mismanagement of the wild horses and our public lands.  However, this in turn caused a detrimental backlash of criticism against the government and the BLM and a subsequent flurry of news reports based on statements by BLM spokespersons have headlined a false positive result for America’s horses. This has effectively left the public in the dark. The public has been duped and we believe the public deserves to know that America's wild horses and burros are still in danger.

As part of the Saving America’s Horses Educational platform, we have recently released a special PSA Series featuring excerpts straight from the full length version of the awarding winning documentary, SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES: A NATION BETRAYED. These are 1-2 minute PSA's made available by the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) as powerful social action tools for the purpose of educating the public and to refute the myths and misinformation which has essentially duped many people and left useless the laws which are supposed to protect these animals.

Our current target is to raise $35,000, which is estimated to cover crucial production and outreach expenses for the next level of release through educational venues and DVD.  Financial contributions are urgently needed to make this objective a reality. Through GlobalGiving, with your continued kind and generous support we’ve raised $2240 through 85 donations to date, toward our overall goal of $35,000. Your vital support is what makes it possible for the Wild For Life Foundation to carry out this work.

We are reaching out to spread the word about the vital need for recurring donations through our GlobalGiving platform. Monthly giving is the easiest way to support this crucial lifesaving mission.  Your thoughtful donations are vital for the lifesaving work that we do.  Your support in sharing information about this important cause will undoubtedly help us to come closer to our goal. Will you help by sharing a link to our project page on Global Giving?

 “America's horses are disappearing and along with them goes a part of us, says filmmaker, Katia Louise. “We can't bring back those we've lost, but we have the power to make a difference for generations to come.” In an effort to save, protect and preserve wild and domestic equines, as opposed to the promotion of horse slaughter and widespread roundups throughout the American West, Saving America’s Horses’ Director, Katia Louise is calling on members of the public who care about the horses and the environment to join in a united stance for the horses with Saving America’s Horses by sharing information about this important cause with their networks.

Awe Inspiring Landmark Release Spotlights Urgent Global Environmental and Humanitarian Crisis

The Wild For Life Foundation just announced the release of its featurette documentary film Saving America's Horses. The powerful film contrasts shots of noble, beautiful, galloping animals with well-researched, shocking statistics and brings to screen a searing indictment of special interests and governmental agencies involved in the predatory exploits of America's horses. Viewers are now able to watch the film through Vimeo On-Demand in HD or SD on their TVs, phones, computers and tablets.

The SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES featurette brings to screen brand new scenes and footage, plus updated statistics from the all new digitally re-mastered full length documentary film, SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES: A NATION BETRAYED, slated for release through educational venues including universities, schools and libraries and onto television/ cable and DVD. The original SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES documentary won numerous awards on the international festival circuit and was then successfully released to theaters in LA and NYC in December of 2012. The feature length film also qualified for Oscar consideration which brought the issues impacting America's horses into the mainstream.

“America's horses are disappearing and along with them goes a part of us, says filmmaker, Katia Louise. “We can't bring back those we've lost, but we have the power to make a difference for generations to come.” In an effort to save, protect and preserve wild and domestic equines, as opposed to the promotion of horse slaughter and widespread roundups throughout the American West, Saving America’s Horses’ Director, Katia Louise is calling on members of the public who care about the horses and the environment to join in a united stance for the horses with Saving America’s Horses by sharing information about this important cause with their networks

SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a powerful podium with a dynamic reach to humanitarians and animal lovers worldwide. This intelligent exposé also reveals how the public has been misled by special interests that run over the laws that are supposed to protect the horses, people and the environment. "Saving America’s Horses helps spotlight what is becoming an urgent global humanitarian crisis – the pollution of fresh water. The RBC Blue Water Project is our commitment to protecting the lifeblood of this planet that we all need to share." — Regional President, Ontario North and East, RBC Royal Bank

Film North's theme; One Word, One World; Environment became the perfect conduit for “Saving America’s Horses” environmental message. Winner of Best Environmental Film in Canada, this intelligent and powerful film explores the destruction of life on our planet by looking at the pollution of fresh water, the degradation of open range lands and how we treat the animals that we share our world with; such as the horse.  "It is the time we live in now; the moment of truth... it is time to come together and acknowledge what we are doing to ourselves" - Cualtli Yahtl tribal spiritual leader. 

“Unpacks a multi-layered conspiracy — fueled by a parade of misinformation— against the survival and proliferation of horses.” —  LA TIMES

Bringing together a wide spectrum of hard-hitting, sometimes opposing viewpoints the film lays down evidence for the Full Monty of objectionable behavior, including neglect, cruelty, deception, and profiteering. The victims run the gamut, from those who eat the meat filled with carcinogenic and other harmful drugs, to the horses themselves, wild horses poached from government land, Thoroughbred race horses who pass through the system to oblivion, domestic horses who outlive their welcome and are sent to slaughter. SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a compelling, provocative and a rallying cry for justice and integrity.

Critic reviews of the feature length version of this film describe it as "A provocative rallying cry for justice and integrity" - THE QUAD CINEMA, NYC "Outstanding" - LA SPLASH MAGAZINE "Impassioned" - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER "Shocking statistics… "A searing indictment" -VARIETY "Filled with facts" - NY TIMES “A broad and balanced spectrum of opinion through interviews with veterinarians, trainers, policymakers and celebrity horsemen...” - ABOUT.COM

Many of the nation's foremost experts and leaders in the movement have united together to have their voices heard through SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES. With over 88,000,000 people that attend horse-related events in the USA each year, America’s interest in what’s happening to them has never been greater.

The Wild For Life Foundation is deeply greatful to all those who are supporting SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES, and to make a real difference, philanthropic sponsorships, grants and other sources of funding are being sought to put the powerful full length feature film out into the mainstream. Proceeds from the rental of the Saving America’s Horses featurette benefit the Wild For Life Foundation charity and its Saving America’s Horses program.

America’s horses are imperiled.  Without adequate Federal protection, every day hundreds of healthy, sound beautiful majestic horses are crammed into double deck cattle trucks and shipped across Federal borders where they are brutally butchered for their meat. And, the majority of people have no idea that this is going on. 

That’s why education is the key to making the changes needed for America’s wild and domestic horses and burros. Saving America’s Horses, the movie is a game changer for America’s horses, but crucial funding is needed to help bring this powerful and compelling documentary film to the masses.

The long-term benefits of this powerful educational resource are endless and will be felt for generations to come. To date we have raised $2,215 of $35,000 goal.   Your donations will be used to help release of this important documentary to the educational circuit, onto DVD and beyond so that the public will have access to the true facts and can take action toward viable solutions for positive change.

We are worlking around the clock toward the release of this multi-international award winning film to DVD and beyond, as “Saving America's Horses” continues to raise awareness and compel people to action. 

Although the defunding of the appropriations for USDA inspectors in U.S. horse slaughter plants is currently back in place, America's wild and domestic horses continue to face the most gruesome fate after being sold at local auctions around the country, then shipped for slaughter in Canada and Mexico. Awareness if key to lifesaving action.

We are working steadily to release Saving America’s Horses to DVD and to bring movie screenings to theaters and local community venues far and wide.Katia

Never before has the need been so great to save, protect and preserve America’s horses. America’s horses are disappearing. Without adequate Federal protection, every day hundreds of healthy, sound beautiful majestic horses are crammed into double deck cattle trucks and shipped across Federal borders where they are brutally butchered for their meat. And, the majority of people have no idea that this is going on.

Just last week end we brought SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES to screen in NYC. Audiences came away from the movie raving and crowds gathered around our Saving America’s Horses (donated) billboard truck to learn more. Gorgeous life-size wild horses running to freedom from cruelty were brought to the streets of the big apple – educating inspiring people to get involved.
