Double your impact and help save wild horses this #GivingTuesday
The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
This #GivingTuesday, all donations up to $50,000 will be matched but only until midnight.
But we’re not just asking you to rush in a donation — We’re asking you to become a member of the AWHC family and a part of our national movement to save America’s wild horses and burros.
The Acting Director of the Bureau of Land Management labeled wild horses and burros as the greatest threat to public lands. He’s spreading disinformation and throwing his support behind cruel plans that could result in the wholesale slaughter of these beautiful animals in our lifetimes.
We refuse to let him get away with this. So when you make a donation to support AWHC, here’s where your money is going:
Education and Advocacy — From Nevada and Utah, to Oregon and Wyoming, sometimes the only public observer on site for roundups is one of our field representatives. But we do more than document these cruel acts. Over the past ten years, we’ve grown our grassroots base 100x in size so that we can be a powerful collective voice for protection of wild horses and burros and against their slaughter.
In The Wild Management — In northern Nevada, AWHC is implementing the world’s largest humane management program for wild horses. The cornerstone of this highly successful program is the remote darting of wild mares with the birth control vaccine PZP. We’re proving that there is a cost-effective, humane, and safe way to manage wild horses that would make roundups and slaughter a relic of the past.
Legislation — From statehouses to the U.S. Capitol, AWHC ensures that wild horses and burros have a voice in both state and federal government. We spearheaded state efforts like California’s AB 128 (which passed this year) and fought successfully in Congress to defeat language that would allow for the transfer and mass killing of wild horses.
Litigation — AWHC and our coalition partners have a strong record of successful litigation, winning over 90% of the cases we file. We’re currently involved in six major lawsuits to prevent inhumane surgical experiments on mares as well as prevent the removal of thousands of wild horses throughout the West. Over the years, we’ve put in place precedents that will stand the test of time, upholding important legal protections granted by Congress to America’s iconic mustangs and burros.
Today represents an incredible opportunity, not only to double your impact, but also to become a member of the AWHC family and the movement we’re building. Together, we will defend America’s wild horses and burros and ensure they remain wild and free. Donate today.
