The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
We’re less than a week away from the end of 2022, with 2023 set to be a make-or-break year for America’s wild horses and burros.
Why? Because the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Wild Horse and Burro Program has reached its breaking point: More wild horses and burros are confined in government holding facilities than ever before. These mustangs are placed at-risk in facilities that are riddled with widespread animal welfare violations, disease outbreaks, overcrowding, and worse.
Meanwhile, the cost to taxpayers to maintain this program continues to skyrocket. As the price tag increases, the threat of mass slaughter for these innocent animals becomes all the more real.
But the worse things get for our wild horses and burros, the more support we garner for ending the cruel and costly management practices that threaten their future. With hundreds of thousands of new advocates joining our cause every year, we have incredible and crucial opportunities in 2023 to enact real, meaningful change for wild horses and burros.
But this is not an easy fight, and we need the resources to effect lasting change for these magnificent icons. In 2022, we set the stage for sweeping reform, and in 2023, we are ready to jump into action.
That’s why we set a goal to raise $150,000 by December 31 to fuel our legislative and legal agendas in 2023 and to continue the operation of our other lifesaving programs. Thanks to generous donors — every gift made now through midnight on December 31 will be MATCHED! Donate today to double your impact for wild horses and burros as we head into the new year. >>
Thanks for your help.
