The 2022 10-year anniversary release will focus on distribution platforms with worldwide streaming channels.

"SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES- A Nation Betrayed" is a powerful feature length documentary film that has garnered massive support for its deeply passionate look into the world of both wild and domestic horses, their connection to our history and the future of humanity.

Acclaimed for awakening the moral fabric of humanity, this epic film won multiple international awards on the festival circuit including Best Documentary Film at the Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival, the Royal Bank of Canada Best Environmental Film Award at Film North Huntsville International Film Festival in Canada, and Awards for Cinematography, Editing Conservation Message and Advocacy at the International Wildlife Film Festival and the Accolade Feature Documentary Film Award of Merit, among others.

"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." — Jeff Boyd, Regional President, Ontario North and East, RBC Royal Bank

In 2012, SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES released bicoastally to theaters in Los Angeles and New York City and qualified for Oscar consideration which put the issues impacting America's horses front and center in mainstream news.

 "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 including Paul Sorvino and Willie Nelson, among others” - ABOUT.COM “Unpacks a multi-layered conspiracy - fueled by a parade of misinformation- against the survival and proliferation of horses” - LA TIMES

Starring many of the nation's foremost experts and leaders in the movement to protect America’s horses. Celebrity cast appearances include Paul Sorvino, Michael Blake, Willie Nelson, Tippi Hedren, Linda Gray, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Ken Wahl, The Barbi Twins, Amy & Raelyn Nelson, Jennifer Pryor and more!

Special interests want to kill off America's horses and with them would go the greatest legacy we may ever know.

Never has there been a need so great for people to ban together for the protection of one of our most precious and historic natural resources, the horse.  

Unless America's wild and domestic equines are protected, the future for our beloved and majestic horses and burros will continue to be in jeopardy. The stakes could not be higher; their very survival is at stake and time is running out.

We are fighting against the destructive efforts by the Bureau of Land Management to exterminate the last of America’s wild horses and burros in the wild. And we are fighting to defend and save thousands of wild and domestic equines who are being mistreated, removed, and transported across federal borders for human consumption abroad.

Help us raise compassion for the protection of America's horses and burros, who are fighting for their right-to-life on this great planet we share. These sentient beings are a treasure trove of wisdom and love. The horse nation (the world's horses and burros) have been loyal in their devoted service and friendship to mankind for thousands of years. As an indigenous species to North America, their role is essential to the replenishment of many natural ecosystems. To turn our heads and allow them to be exterminated or sold for slaughter is a betrayal to both the horse nation, and a betrayal to humanity.

America's horses and burros are disappearing and along with them goes a part of us. The future is in our hands. We can't bring back those we've lost, but we have the power to make a difference for generations to come. 

We believe that America's horses deserve to have their story told and with your help and support, together we can give America's horses the voice they need and so very much deserve.

Let’s not let politics or differences on other issues divide us on this very important effort to stop slaughter and protect America’s wild and domestic equines.

We hope that you will help spread the word about SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES by forwarding our announcements to your network of friends and family. To help even more, be sure to add a personal note in your own words about why you support this project.

Thank you for your continued kind and generous support for this important project. We are honored for the opportunity to raise awareness for SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES through the GlobalGiving fund raising platform.

 Yours for the horses and burros,

Katia Louise, Director

ALERT!  The U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) have recently accelerated their violent roundups and their intended removal of the last wild horses and burros from America’s public lands.  Countless wild horses’ and burros’ lives and the future of America’s free-roaming wild horses and burros are under immediate threat of destruction!   

According to the BLM’s own 2020-2021 estimate, the actual number of wild horses and burros on the open range has drastically declined by more than 96% since their last actual census.  This drastic decline was caused by The BLM; yet they are the agency charged by Congress to protect America’s wild horses and burros.

Now the BLM fully intends to severely diminish our horses’ and burros’ natural presence in the wild to less than 98%. See their most recent submitted report to Congress, BLM 2020 WHB Report.

As also revealed by the same Report, the BLM is complicit in their ruthless and methodical plan of genocidal intent to wipe out the last 1.3% of America’s precious wild horses and burros through acts of escalated violent roundups and permanent sterilization.

We are strongly opposed to this convoluted plan to sterilize the last 1.3% of America’s free roaming wild horses and burros.  We see this as a modern day “Trail of Tears” for America’s horses and burros whom are being zeroed out from their native lands.  

We as native people honor the horse nation, our sacred relatives; horses and burros are as much a part of the land as we are; their future is our future.

Saving America's Horses helps to bring aid and provide for the vital needs America's at-risk equines through the support of wild and domestic horse and burro preservation and the prevention of equine cruelty.  

We believe the public is being misled.  Many Need-to-Know facts about the use PZP on free-roaming wild horses and burros have been concealed and or omitted in the reports generated by agencies and groups that support and or who benefit from the use of PZP on America’s free roaming wild horses and burros. 

We have extensively researched the risks of using PZP on America’s free roaming wild horses and burros.  As a project under Wild For Life Foundation, a nonprofit animal protection organization which was founded for the purpose of prevention of cruelty to animals, Saving America’s Horses is dedicated to breaking the cycle of animal cruelty and the protection of all equines from extermination, roundups, slaughter, and other forms of cruelty.  We are therefore opposed to the use of PZP on America’s free roaming wild horses and burros. We encourage all those who want to protect America’s wild horses and burros from cruelty to learn about the harmfuls risks and join in helping to expose the truth.

NEED-TO-KNOW FACTS:

The off-label use of pesticides such as PZP is widely accepted for use by wild horse advocates to suppress fertility in captive Mustangs in nonbreeding environments such as sanctuaries and preserves.  However, the repeated use of these chemicals on equines in the wild could spell total disaster for wild equines due to the long-term adverse effects.

PZP (aka Spayvac) has come under fire by a growing number of concerned equine experts and advocates. Evidence shows the use of Spayvac and Gonacon on wild free roaming horses has been found to sterilize the mares and suppress their natural hormonal behaviors. Their fitness is altered, as is their ability to survive in the wild.

PZP is a pesticide-sterilant that was registered without toxicity-testing. It tricks the immune system into producing antibodies that cause ovarian dystrophy, autoimmune oophoritis, ovarian cysts, and premature ovarian failure. It causes out-of-season births, where foaling occurs nearly year-round rather than in the Spring.  After just 3 consecutive treatments, return to fertility could take up to 8 years, if ever, and the if the first dose is given before puberty it can trigger sterility.

Some wild horse groups have recently started supporting the use of PZP fertility control on equines in the wild, with the hope that the BLM would move away from their cruel and costly helicopter roundups.  However, the BLM does not care about the horses and burros, and if the last of America’s free-roaming wild horses and burros are repeatedly treated with PZP, their existence in the wild will soon be over.
