The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
We’ve got two updates for you today — The first one is on our progress fueling up our Rescue Fund, and the second’s on how our eight sweet rescued burros are doing in their new home!
Rescue Fund Rebuild
Yesterday, we set out to raise $20,000 by midnight tonight to fuel our Rescue Fund, because as you may have guessed, funding this burro rescue along with the mustangs you heard about yesterday has significantly depleted it.
Since kick-off, we’ve raised $8,461 — a solid start! But if we’re going to make it to $20,000 in the next 12 hours, we’re going to need more folks to pitch in and keep this momentum going. If you can, will you donate now to bolster our Rescue Fund so that we can save more wild horses and burros from slaughter?
Burro Rescue Update
Just a few weeks ago, we shared with you one of our recent burro rescues — a group of eight we saved in the nick of time from the slaughter pipeline. Well, we are happy to report that they have safely arrived at Mustang Camp in New Mexico, where the staff has been giving them top-notch care and helping them acclimate to their new home.
The burros all have been given names – Marco, Nelly, Amelia, Giovanni, Ferdinand, Drake, and Vasco – and are getting to know their new caretakers through daily “Burro Happy Hours,” which involve staff offering all of them “shots” (of alfalfa and pellets) from behind the “bar” (a water trough) . Click here to watch a clip of this burgeoning burro pub scene!
We both know just how important it is that we’re able to spring into action and help to rescue these animals at these critical moments. So, with almost 12 hours left until we have to reach our $20,000 goal, will you make a donation to help us refuel our Rescue Fund ASAP?
Thank you for your support!
