The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
Our BIGGEST fundraising day of the year is just over 48 hours away. And we’ve got great news – last week, we raised $35,000 towards Giving Tuesday and unlocked a 2X matchfrom one of our generous donors!
As we gear up for Giving Tuesday, we’re setting the stage for our work in 2024. Achieving our $100,000 goal is more than just a number; it means having the resources to support and continue all of our vital programs that defend and protect wild horses and burros. And next year, our work will be more important than ever.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is gearing up to continue its cruel helicopter roundups across the West, posing a serious threat to the freedom and safety of thousands of wild horses and burros. These roundups often leave these animals traumatized, and many sustain serious injuries while trying to evade capture. Help us fight back. >>
This year, far too many innocent wild horses and burros, including many young foals, lost their lives thanks to government mismanagement. Once captured, these magnificent creatures are crammed into overburdened government-holding facilities where they face inhumane conditions, disease, injury, and death. Even worse, they are at risk of entering the slaughter pipeline through the BLM’s disastrous Adoption Incentive Program (AIP).
Your support this Giving Tuesday can help us fight back. Hitting this $100,000 goal would help power:
- Our direct rescue efforts to track and rescue victims of the AIP before they’re shipped to slaughter;
- Our investigations work to uncover the truth about how our wild horses and burros are treated during roundups and in holding;
- Our expanding fertility control programs that are proving to the BLM, Congress, and the public that there IS a better way to manage our wild herds;
- Our advocacy work in Congress and state legislatures across the country to pass legislation that strengthens protections for wild horses and burros,
- And so much more.
This Giving Tuesday, let’s make a real impact together. Your contribution can make a world of difference for the future of these magnificent animals. So will you join us in standing up for wild horses and burros? Remember, every donation that comes in before midnight on Tuesday will be doubled, so you can 2X your impact for 2024!
