The historic wild horses that live in the Teddy Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota are currently stuck in the crosshairs of the National Park Service and need your help. Right now, the agency is considering three management proposals that will determine whether or not the Teddy Roosevelt horses will have a future on the lands they have called home for centuries. Please take one moment to speak up for these beloved mustangs.

Meet Withers Jr., an incredible Nevada stallion! When AWHC volunteer Deb Sutherland first saw him on the Virginia Range in 2017, he was just a tiny newborn colt walking next to his mother. Fast forward to today → He is the proud lead stallion of his own band with three beautiful mares to protect!
Last month, we received word from California-based, Auction Horses Rescue (AHR) that a load of 22 donkeys – mostly BLM burros, many pregnant – were being directly shipped to slaughter. In a collaborative effort between AWHC, AHR, Skydog Sanctuary and Oscar’s Place, these burros are now safe.
Thanks for reading. And thank you for continuing to stand up for our cherished wild horses and burros!
