The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
Apologies for all the emails from our team this week — we know it can be a lot, but it’s only because there is so much on the line for wild horses and burros in 2023.
Today I’m going to ask you to donate $25, $50, or whatever you can afford to AWHC before our December 31st End-of-Year deadline. But first, let me explain why we urgently need your support:
This year was a hard one for our cherished wild herds. Families were torn apart and freedom and lives were lost. Over 20,000 wild horses and burros were ripped from their homes on our public lands, and over 60,000 mustangs and burros languish in government holding facilities.
But as bad as this year was, it has only strengthened our resolve to fight harder.
The silver lining to this tragic story is that our advocacy has helped to publicize the severity of the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) inhumane program, leading to growing public outrage.
We’ve seen hundreds of thousands of Americans come together and demand an end to the BLM’s costly and cruel roundup program. Congress has joined in as well, demanding these necessary reforms. Our champions even introduced the historic Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Protection Act of 2022 with strong bipartisan support.
So, now is our moment. We must capitalize on this momentum and continue our fight to keep wild horses and burros roaming free.
Will you make a donation before Saturday at midnight to help fuel our work and put an end to brutal helicopter roundups? Right now, we are $68,336 of the way to our $150,000 goal. Donate now to have your gift DOUBLED this holiday season. >>
Thank you for standing with us.
