Numerous horses and burros have become at risk due to the escalating rise in hay prices. In fact, studies have shown a direct increase in the rise of abuse and neglect cases associated with the rise in hay prices in the U.S. The rising cost of hay prices also impacts the ability of equine rescue and sanctuary organizations to accommodate horses and burros in need.
That’s why this project is so essential!
Financial support is vital to help cover basic feed costs which are absolute and ongoing for the lifespan of each rescued horse & burro. Nutritional hay is life for horses and burros, and keeping a constant supply of quality hay on hand is vital to the lifesaving work that we do.
However, hay costs have more than doubled since last year due to increased fuel and grain prices, extreme drought conditions and wildfires. On average WFLF spends upwards to $3,000 a month for feed, including, hay, grains and supplements to feed rescue horses and burros in need.
We are extremely grateful for the steady flow of donations made to this project through GlobalGiving. Your donations help make it possible for us to provide for a continuum of quality care for many at-risk horses and burros in need.
WFLF’s rescue and crisis assistance missions have saved hundreds of horses and burros over the years—the majority of whom would likely otherwise starved and or would have gone to slaughter without the meaningful support of devoted supporters like you.
We thank you for helping to make this lifesaving work possible by supporting this important project under the Wild For Life Foundation.
Yours for the horses and burros in need,
Wild For Life Foundation
