SHORT BABY UPDATE – 14 HERE NOW! LOTS OF INJURIES

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

QUICK UPDATE

Thank you to all the wonderful folks who have been helping. It has been a year.

Once again I acted on Faith and took Mia into the vet. Doc was wonderful about the fact she needed help asap. We have to get the bills wrapped up, but they are amazing and put Mia’s needs first.

I so appreciate the donations and milk support. These horses would literally not be alive without your love and support!

With 14 kids, all on milk, I am going through Foal Lac Pellets and Foal Lac Powder by the bucketsThe costs to care for 21 horses, with hay, grain, vetting, shavings, milk, medicines etc. is astronomical. I have to catch up before the next kids get here. I have been told to “get ready to be slammed”.

MIA update – her paralysis is gone, PTL! The swelling in her neck went down and her nerves came back. She is still having huge issues with her right front leg, and tried to jump a 6 foot fence. Being trampled and attacked as a newborn instills a great deal of fear. She now has “Marbles’ with her and they are both slowly learning that they can safely hang out.

STANDING by for more babies still. It is never ending and oh so exhausting, but there are some very lucky kids here thanks to y’all!

Our game plan to stop the AIP: litigation, rescues, and investigation

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

As we write this, more and more wild horses and burros continue to be funneled into the slaughter pipeline through the the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) failed Adoption Incentive Program (AIP), which pays people $1,000 to adopt a wild, untamed horse or burro. Unscrupulous adopters are collecting the incentive payments, then sending the adopted mustangs or burros to slaughter auctions as soon as the money clears their bank accounts. Help us put an end to this shameful program >>

All the while, the BLM continues to round up wild horses and burros across the West, fueling this slaughter pipeline. The summer/fall roundup season is now in full swing — by the end of August, at least 1,400 wild horses and burros will be captured and removed from their homes on our public lands. 

We have already filed suit against the BLM over the AIP and the federal laws they broke in the implementation of this program. And, we are also funding the rescue of innocent wild horses and burros who were “adopted” through this program and have ended up at kill pens — many just days or hours away from shipping to slaughter in Mexico or Canada. 

In fact, we were just alerted to 10 BLM-branded burros up for sale in an Oklahoma kill pen. We know that burros are at a particularly high risk of being sent to slaughter through the AIP, giving us even more reason to help save these innocent animals. So we decided to offer a matching grant to help pay their bail!

We’re taking on the AIP from every possible angle. Can you make a donation to the AWHC today to help fuel our efforts?

DONATE NOW >> STOP THE AIP

 

BLM-branded burros being rescued from an Oklahoma kill pen.

We’re continuing to investigate the AIP and uncover the full breadth of the fraud and abuse that America’s mustangs and burros have suffered at the hands of this program. 

Thanks to our months-long investigation, and an explosive New York Times exposé – we have delivered compelling evidence-filled reports to the BLM and we have worked with members of Congress to call for an immediate end to the AIP.

We’re taking every possible measure — litigation, rescues, and investigation — to end the AIP and stop the flow of federally-protected mustangs and burros to kill pens. Can you help us fight back with a donation to our efforts today to help us protect the lives of wild horses and burros and put an end to the AIP?

MIA NEEDS VET CARE NOW. URGENT HELP NEEDED. CATCHER CALLED – MORE BABIES IN THE TRAP (1 needs surgery)

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

QUICK UPDATE

Crippled baby MIA, NEEDS to go back to the vet. She has a 50/50 chance of recovering and healing from the paralysis in her spine.

I need to take her to Goldendale Veterinary today, but the bill is about $2,600 and I need to pay it asap.

Our bill at Harrah Veterinary is close to $1500 +/-.

Catcher called.. Babies in the trap. 3 and most likely more. One needs a big hernia repair, or she can go ???? However I cannot keep saving horses we can’t afford to take care of. There are also MORE coming. Do I say yes?

I’m really hoping I can get some of the funds for the vet bill, as Mia needs to go Today!

SHORT – URGENT – 911 UPDATE – CRIPPLED? NEWBORN 911 – PREGNANT MARE, MAMA AND NEWBORN & 3 NEW ORPHANS

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

QUICK UPDATE

THESE HORSES NEED HELP IMMEDIATELY!

CRIPPLED NEWBORN & MAMA AT THE SHIPPER’S. I need to get him/her to the vet asap!!

VERY PREGNANT MARE ABOUT TO POP – ALSO AT THE SHIPPER’S.

Three more orphans arrived – one rushed to emergency vet for Plasma and treatment due to other horses attacking and biting her. New Vet bill is already over $1000

Grandpa Duke went into congestive heart failure, and is now running free in heaven.

Ellie was over 25 and not only starved, but extremely crippled with her coffin bone rotating through her hoof.

These cases are devastating and beyond heartbreaking. However, I got the call for the new babies before I even got home from taking the big kids in. As broken as I am, I don’t have time to grieve, because these new lives matter just as much.

911 – TODAY’S EMERGENCY – EMACIATED, NEARLY DEAD OLD MAN, STARVING MARE AND INJURED PONY NEED US NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

MEET “GRANDPA DUKE

He is emaciatedcan barely walk and had blood coming from his mouthOnce again, I acted on Faith. I had to say yes. I am not sure if I can save him, but he will get the very best care possible and is already getting so much love. One look and my heart was done. Those sad, worried eyes just stole my soul.

I was called for 3 urgent, emergency cases. The mare Ellie is on her way to starving and has an old, obviously very painful injury to her leg. She is in extremely poor shape and needs medical attention for her leg immediately.

Prada is a quarter pony with a bad head injury that was left untreated due to the fact she is wild. Her miracle is that she escaped being shipped once, only to end up back in the shipping pen at the auction, headed to slaughter again. The fact that the injury on her face is getting worse is definitely concerning, and she needs immediate medical care.

Apparently this seems to be an “every day” thing? It will take roughly $2500 to save all THREE of these kids, (Bail, vetting, medications, groceries, transport etc.) That will most likely be a drop in the bucket of what it will take to get them healthy and ready for adoption. Doc is already schedule for tomorrow morning and I can only pray we can save all of them.

Please help if you can, and THANK YOU for all you do. I understand the need is constant and probably annoying – but I HAVE TO ask for help when God puts one of these souls in front of me. I will do the work, but can’t provide what they need without your love and support!

(We NOW HAVE 18 horses scheduled for Coggins on Friday morning. So our vet bills keep on coming.)

ANOTHER 6 THIS MORNING.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

It’s hard to see what I am writing, as the tears keep pouring down my face. My beautiful Ghost and my Moose are gone. Yesterday I had to answer their pleas to end their suffering. It’s hard to even breathe, yet “time to grieve” doesn’t seem to be mine.

Hours ago, I was sorting horses, opening gates while the tears slid down. I needed to be ready for the group I was called to save this morning.

When there are literally 6 more lives at stake, you keep wiping away the tears and “git ‘er done”, no matter how badly you want to scream “no more”. There are times when I simply don’t know how to keep going.

It seems like no matter how much you cry, the pain just follows you. All I know is is God keeps putting these special needs kids in front of me. So as long as He gives me the strength, and Y’all keep making it possible with your love n support, I will try to keep saving these precious lives.

Their is so much hospice type care this year, it’s unreal.

We have 15 horses scheduled for Coggins on Friday morning. So our vet bills keep on coming. Sadly the new kids still want their milk as well, so as always the need continues, and once again I used funds for milk to actually “save” the babies.

QUICK & URGENT PLEA FOR MORE HELP – UNBELIEVABLE WEEK – 15 (Not 5) NEW ONES – ANOTHER BLIND ONE???

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THIS WEEK HAS BEEN INSANE! CALLS KEEP COMING!

Ghost is still hanging in there. Both Doc’s give him maybe a 50/50 chance to survive, and he will most likely be blind and deaf, if he does survive.

I was asked by one of the catchers to take a wild mare who appeared to have twins. He felt they would not survive and of course I said yes. I am absolutely running on faith right now. There was no time with any of these rescues to stop and fundraise 1st.

Thankfully he made the right call. “Mama” ? was not letting them nurse, and BOTH of the babies have high fevers and one of them has raging scours. (You can always tell a baby is really sick when the waste smells like death.) One of them was bitten through the face. Both Doc and I felt the open injury inside of the mouth. He is on antibiotics, as is his “brother”. Neither would have survived without medical care and antibiotics.

I got a call to pick up “Moose” this afternoon. It appears he is blind as well. He is a super sweet, really big boy and cannot seem to see what is right in front of him. This year has been insane for injury and illness. God keeps putting them in front of me, so I will fight for them as long as they want.

YOU guys are awesome. Your love and support is what makes it happen.

Thank you for EVERYTHING Y’ALL DO! None of this would be possible without you!

INCLUDING GHOST, I have gotten 15 in the last 4?? days. I am no where near prepared. We had some wonderful donations and I thought for a minute we would be ok with milk. However, with all the new ones, we are quickly running out of supplies as it takes funds we planned to spend on milk, vet bills etc., to simply “save these lives”.

It is truly unbelievable how much milk I go through every day.

I am literally “on standby” for more as I type this.

BABIES ARE ARRIVING. SUCH A HARD ONE TONIGHT! GHOST NEEDS YOUR PRAYERS! FOUND ALONE AND COOKED IN THE HEAT WAVE

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THE CALLS KEEP COMING! and SO ARE THE BABIES!

Ghost is one of the new ones. He came in today after being found alone in the wild. He has literally cooked, (hopefully not to death) out alone in the baking sun, with no family around.

At this point he is COMPLETELY DEAF AND BLIND. (Hopefully this is temporary.)

We have had other foals with damage to their vision from overheating so badly. He has horrible sunburn on his face and his eyes, and at this point he is beyond exhausted. He does love to lay his head against you and loves being handled. You can feel him just relax into you.

Can you even imagine being blind, alone and burning up in the heat wave we are having, with none of your family around? It has been over 112 – 115 degrees for days.

He would not have even survived hours longer out there, and sadly I don’t know if he will live through the night or not. Right now he is sleeping in my ICU nursery. He is beyond exhausted. He will be seeing the emergency vet tomorrow morning if he is still with us. We are doing everything Doc said to do in the meantime, and I need your help! PLEASE say a prayer for him. He fought so hard to survive I have to honor that will to live.

ACTION NEEDED: Tell your U.S. Rep to vote YES on the Carter-Fitzpatrick Amendment to the INVEST Act!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

In the last week, there has been some important wild horse news that we wanted to make sure you didn’t miss! 


Urgent: Contact Your Rep to Stop Horse Slaughter

Right now, in the House of Representatives, we have an opportunity to stop horse slaughter through the INVEST Act. This Act is a large government infrastructure bill that may also give us an opportunity to stop the transport of horses and burros across the border to slaughter. It goes up for a vote next week! 

We need you to contact your Representative right now and tell them to vote YES on the Carter-Fitzpatrick Amendment!

TAKE ACTION

 

We’re Challenging the BLM’s Wild Burro Eradication Plan

Last week, AWHC attorneys filed a legal challenge to the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) burro eradication plan, which calls for the roundup and removal of all of the burros in three California Herd Areas (HAs).

In it, we charge that the agency violated federal law by not considering the newly-published science that documented the key benefits of these very burros to their ecosystems, which includes well digging in the arid desert. The new science even went so far as to call wild burros “ecosystem engineers!”

Sierra Club Adopts Friendly Wild Horse Policy

The Sierra Club, the nation’s leading environmental organization, recently updated its wild horse and burro policy. This policy had not been changed in 40 years and it called for the elimination of wild horses and burros from key habitats.

Now, the new policy calls for scientific and humane in-the-wild management, including removal of livestock before horses, predator protection, and the use of fertility control! We are so excited to work with the organization to protect wild horses and burros on public lands in the future.

Lawmakers, Advocates Push to End BLM Wild Horse Adoption Incentives

Recently, AWHC’s Executive Director, Suzanne Roy, and wild horse champion, U.S. Representative Dina Titus were interviewed on a Las Vegas NPR affiliate, KNPR, about the BLM’s failed Adoption Incentive Program (AIP).

In this 25 minute segment, they cover what the AIP is, it’s disatorious effects, how lawmakers are calling for its end, and what a better solution is for our wild horses and burros! The riveting interview is not one you want to miss!

ANOTHER URGENT CALL – 5, MAYBE MORE BABIES IN THE TRAP! CAN WE SAVE THEM? THE HEAT IS BRUTAL

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THE CALLS KEEP COMING!

ANOTHER 5 BABIES (OR MORE) TOMORROW! It was easily 100 degrees today, and the weather is supposed to be brutal. It is so hard on these babies, especially after sitting in a trap for who knows how long.

Got a call from the vet today. Our current balance at the Goldendale Veterinary Hospital is $1130. I HAVE to get that paid off asap. They are amazing and will squeeze me in at a moment’s notice to help these babies, but I have to stay current on the bill.

Tia, shown above, has horrific injuries to her legs. Her back leg is brutal, definitely to the bone and I need y’all to pray hard for her. She is on antibiotics and her wounds are being cleaned and packed with clay. Her condition is extremely critical and depending on how badly her bone has been damaged, it could be a life and death issue. Thankfully her fever was not off the charts.

So once again these precious souls need more help. I am still going through milk like crazy, and I need to say YES to the babies tomorrow.

Apparently I do not need to go back to NV for awhile, but it is obvious that these babies need a safe place to land. I will do my part, but I can’t do it without you!.

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

BARNEY NEEDS YOU IN THE NEXT FEW HOURS!

I need to come up with his funds by this evening. Barney has quite a few issues, but overall just needs us to save him.

I even have a potential home offer for him already.

I need to make sure I can pay for him this afternoon.

He is old, sweet, crippled, has a deformed stifle area and walks super slow. His back is a tad roached, but oh my gosh his heart is as big as Texas!!

Please let’s save him. We need a HAPPY!

I had to end Tommy’s suffering yesterday. Rescue is heartbreaking but now we have a chance for a win for Barney!

If we get any extra funds they will go for vet bills, milk etc. and to save more lives!

We so appreciate ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT! There are more babies coming and it looks like the year is going to be brutal. I cannot do this without you. Please say a prayer and let’s keep saving lives! It’s up to you!

QUICK UPDATE – CATCHER CALLED – BABIES IN THE TRAP NOW! CAN I SAY YES TO SAVING THEM! ITS UP TO YOU!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Catcher Called – BABIES IN THE TRAP & MORE ON THE WAY!

WILL YOU HELP SAVE THEM?

We are having endless vet bills. I was asked to pick up “Tommy” so he might have a tiny chance to survive. He was seen by Doc yesterday and she has little to no hope we can save him. It appears that not only is his joint septic, the infection is spreading up his bone. I am going the extra mile, and will drive him to where we can get x-rays. He has the most beautiful soul and we are bonding like crazy due to rushing to get him gentled for vetting.

When I was asked to pick up “Tommy”, I honestly wanted to say no, because I knew he had “old injuries”. I didn’t want to deal with having to “do the right thing” if he needed it. I am so devastated every time I hear someone say “he is fine – he is scabbing up”. SCABBING UP IS USUALLY A DEATH SENTENCE. IT IS JUST LOCKING IN THE POISON. THEN I GET THEM TOO LATE. It kills me.

TIME IS OF THE ABSOLUTE ESSENCE with these precious babies.

My heart has been shattered over and over this year. Yet I WAS LITERALLY HIS ONLY CHANCE, so of course I had to say yes. PLEASE SAY A PRAYER we get a miracle tomorrow.

I was finally able to secure the filly with the broken leg. Doc checked her yesterday and her ONLY option was to stop her horrible pain and suffering. She passed peacefully and finally is free from the horrors of her life here on earth.

Dakota Joe, the starving old man is here with me and beginning to love life again.

I am once again incurring tremendous vet bills. The meds are costly and so is the milk. I know for a fact there are babies in the pen AT THIS VERY MOMENT.

WILL YOU HELP ME SAVE THEM? Their very lives depend on us.

We so appreciate ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT! There are more babies coming and it looks like the year is going to be brutal. I cannot do this without you. Please say a prayer and let’s keep saving lives! It’s up to you!

VERY SHORT UPDATE – TODAY’S URGENT 911 – EMERGENCY CALL FOR STARVING OLD MAN AND ANOTHER BABY WITH A BROKEN LEG!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER 911! — They are truly never ending.

This beautiful old man is emaciated and needs our help today!!!

I am running on Faith, but I have to tell them yes. He does not deserve the alternative.

ANOTHER CALL for a privately owned baby (yearling) with an obviously broken leg. She is suffering horriblyI need to get her asap so she can be humanely euthanized.

RIP – Reba Emergency vet visit yesterday. Our beautiful Reba turned septic and her pneumonia was so bad she couldn’t breathe. This happened in 2 days and Doc said she had Failure of Passive Transfer. (Not enough colostrum from Mom and too late to do anything about it.) She had been under vet supervision and was on antibiotics, but without the immunities there is no chance.

RIP – Fidelity – Her swollen ankle was broken. The ONLY humane thing for her was to end her suffering. My babies aren’t even buried and we have new, living, suffering emergencies. So I can’t shut down, I have to keep going and cry later.

I am beyond devastated. This year has been horrible for these babies. All I can do is pray for strength and that folks step up and make it possible to save every one we can.

Thank you for being there for these precious souls.

We so appreciate ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT! There are more babies coming and it looks like the year is going to be brutal. I cannot do this without you. Please say a prayer and let’s keep saving lives! It’s up to you!

ICYMI: Over 30 members of Congress have called on the BLM to suspend its’ AIP!

2

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We wanted to make sure you heard about this exciting update:

Over the last week, 30+ members of Congress have called on the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to suspend an adoption program that’s sending wild horses and burros to slaughter. 

SIGN ON NOW TO DEMAND THE BLM HALT THE AIP >>


The recent groundbreaking New York Times report — prompted by an AWHC investigation of the BLM’s Adoption Incentive Program (AIP) — has led to national awareness about the plight of wild horses and burros, and has received significant attention from legislators on Capitol Hill.

Late last week, in a letter directed to Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) called on the Interior Department to immediately suspend the BLM’s AIP and conduct a thorough investigation into the program that’s become a pipeline to slaughter for untold numbers of federally-protected wild horses and burros.

On Wednesday, U.S. Reps. Earl Blumenauer, Dina Titus, Steve Cohen, Jan Schakowsky, and Mike Quigley along with 25 of their House colleagues sent a similar letter to Secretary Haaland, asking that the AIP be suspended and calling for the passage of the Save America’s Forgotten Equines (SAFE) Act to protect all American horses from slaughter.

Thanks to your support and the buzz surrounding the New York Times article, significant action is being taken to protect America’s wild horses and burros! But Erica, we can’t stop now. Can you sign our petition and join Congress in demanding that the BLM halt the Adoption Incentive Program that’s sending wild horses and burros to slaughter?

SIGN THE PETITION

 
In coordination with our rescue partners, Evanescent Mustang Rescue, Skydog Sanctuary, and Black Hills Sanctuary, AWHC spent significant time searching for and accumulating tangible evidence to document the connection between the BLM’s AIP and the uptick in cherished wild horses and burros in slaughter auctions across the country — all leading to the New York Times exposé. 
We’re working with Senator Feinstein, Reps. Titus and Cohen, and many other members of Congress to put a halt to the AIP, pass federal legislation to help keep wild horses in the wild, and we’re fighting back against a dangerous bill that would strip away federal protections for wild horses and burros by allowing the BLM to trade away their habitats to states.

Erica, we’re doing everything we can to preserve and protect wild horse and burro herds across the U.S. Can you join us in our efforts by signing our petition and demanding that the BLM put an end to its disastrous Adoption Incentive Program?

SIGN THE PETITION

 
Thank you,
AWHC Team

Attention young horse lovers: Spirit Untamed premieres in theatres TOMORROW — and all of us here at AWHC are SO excited for this film’s debut!

In case you have yet to hear about the movie, it features a young girl named Lucky who moves to a new town where she befriends a wild mustang. Now, Lucky and her new friends must save a wild herd of mustangs from wranglers.

Not only is it great to see a movie that aligns so closely with our mission of protecting wild horses making it’s national debut — it’s also an amazing opportunity to inspire a younger generation of wild horse lovers!

If you want to check out the trailer ahead of tomorrow’s premiere, click here! And if you can, consider making a donation to support AWHC’s work in the field, in court, and on the Hill to protect America’s wild horses and burros.

It’s so important that the wild horse and burro issue is brought to the forefront. Just last week, the Biden Administration released its proposed budget for next fiscal year, and it included an increase of $36.8 million for the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Wild Horse and Burro Program — which could remove nearly 90,000 wild horses and burros from their homes on public lands.

You can bet we’re doing everything we can to fight back against this proposal, but one of the best ways to protect wild horses and burros in the years to come is to spread awareness around the issue!

If you’re eager to see Spirit Untamed or you want to help us further our efforts to protect wild horses and burros, click here to watch the trailer and then donate $25 to AWHC today!

BABIES KEEP COMING – 20 & ON STANDBY FOR MORE – CHILLY PEPPER NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Hi all,

(Seeing the pix is hard, but it’s a thousand times worse having to clean them out and take care of them. This is what I deal with every single day. It is horrible having to hurt them to help them. This is my reality.) It is heartbreaking.

As I write this, I have already been called for more horses…..

This is a very difficult update for me to write. Since that last group, I had 9 come in and then 11 more. Thankfully I am down once again to 16, thanks to some of the amazing folks that work with Chilly Pepper. And YES, MANY of these are also badly injured, as shown above. 4 were adopted – PTL!

Sadly, our funds are extremely depleted and we need more help before I can possibly think about taking on more babies Yet how do I say “NO”?

It COST $2000 EVERY MONTH just FOR ME TO BE HERE IN WA where I can save them. Between renting the property where I “camp” and paying the amazing folks who take care of the rescue at home, it is a HUGE hidden cost.

On top of the $4000 for March & April, IT COST $5600 to pay for the horses so they wouldn’t die a horrible death! That is ONLY to get them to camp. It does NOT include any vetting, milk, medical supplies etc. etc. So although we had some wonderful donations, $9600 was spent SOLELY on being here and saving the horses in the last 2 months.

I so appreciate every last penny and every single donation of milk and much needed supplies. HOWEVER, CHILLY PEPPER STILL NEEDS MORE HELP! We have had so many injured and special needs.

With the vet bills we were easily over $15,000, and that was for 2 months only. THANK YOU to everyone who helped with those.

It is excruciatingly expensive to do this. I live in NV. (At least I am supposed to). I end up “camping” in WA for months and months on end. THERE IS NO RESCUE IN WA that either CAN, OR WILL step up to do this.

God continues to put these lives in front of me so I will keep doing my best to save them. IF Chilly Pepper does NOT continue to do this, there will be nowhere for the babies and horses we save, to go. We also had to expand the critical care facilities due to the high number of injuries/ill babies.

I am exhausted and have seen more sadness this year than I can stand. However, I am so grateful for the amazing folks who are stepping up and taking on some of the less critical cases, and for Dustin’ Time Rescue who takes on extremely critical cases.

These horses deserve every chance and I WILL FIGHT WITH EVERY LAST THING I HAVE, BUT I CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU! PLEASE help us keep saving them!

We so appreciate ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT! There are more babies coming and it looks like the year is going to be brutal. I cannot do this without you. Please say a prayer and let’s keep saving lives! It’s up to you!

Your $30 gift today will help us save a wild mare

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Did you know the price of a single mare’s annual PZP vaccine is just $30?

We’re asking: today — on May 30th, will you make a $30 gift to fund our PZP program and help us manage wild horse populations using tried and true fertility control measures?

DONATE $30 NOW

In Nevada’s Virginia Range, AWHC operates the world’s largest humane management program for wild horses. We recently celebrated our two-year anniversary of the establishment of this historic initiative to prove to the world that THERE IS a humane way to manage wild horse populations that doesn’t require mass roundups, crowded holding corrals, dangerous sterilization surgeries, or slaughter.

We’re fighting back against the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) massive herd removals in court and on Capitol Hill — and the success of our PZP program in Nevada has been critical in our fight to protect wild horses.

In roughly a month, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is scheduled to resume helicopter roundups. And over the next 5 years, the BLM is planning to round up an estimated 90,000 wild horses and burros!

Will you make a donation today to help us continue our PZP program and help further research to prove that large horse populations can be managed humanely on public lands?

DONATE $30 NOW

What’s worse,  is that the BLM is accelerating roundups over the next five years, which is projected to cost taxpayers nearly $1 billion dollars. Now we don’t have to tell you that a $30 fertility control treatment is a MUCH MORE cost-effective option compared to these costly roundups!

Tens of thousands of wild horses and burros will lose their families and freedom because of these roundups, and because the BLM doesn’t have the capacity to store all of the horses they capture, it’s already leading to slaughter for too many of these cherished animals.

PZP is a much more sustainable and humane option to keep wild horses in the wild where they belong. On today, the 30th — will you help us to continue the successes of our PZP program with a $30 donation?

🚨 BREAKING 🚨 : Biden just released the proposed budget for the Interior Dept.

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The Biden Administration just released its proposed Fiscal Year 2022 budget for the U.S. Department of the Interior. It contains an astounding increase of $36.8 million for the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Program, and continues the Trump Administration’s accelerated, mass roundup plan and scapegoating of wild equids.

Remember what that plan includes: the removal of nearly 90,000 wild horses and burros from their homes on our public lands, the tripling of the number of wild horses and burros in holding facilities, and a cost to taxpayers of nearly $1 billion in the first five years! And, as the New York Times recently reported, this is already leading to the slaughter of these protected national icons.

It’s shocking that Interior Secretary Haaland has put her seal of approval on this plan. As a member of Congress, she opposed additional funding for wild horse and burro roundups, advocating instead for humane birth control. Clearly, at the helm of the Interior Department, she’s now prioritizing livestock industry interests over the protection of wild horses and burros.

But remember, this is only a budget request. It does not mean that Congress will fund it. 

So, it’s time to fight back … And it’s already happening!

  • Increasing numbers of environmental organizations are speaking up against the scapegoating of wild horses for damage caused by massive livestock grazing. In fact, the Sierra Club recently adopted a policy calling for the elimination of livestock grazing in wild horse and burro habitats!
  • Support for humane, in-the-wild horse and burro management is growing on Capitol Hill. Reps. Dina Titus (D-NV) and Steve Cohen (D-TN) were recently joined by over 40 of their House colleagues in requesting Congress to fund humane fertility control and other on-range methods as a priority over removing wild horses and burros from their homes.
  • AWHC is working with key members of Congress to support a humane, environmentally-focused and scientific approach to wild horse management that would drastically reduce the removal of wild horses and burros from their habitats.
  • We really need you to take action too. Here’s what you can do:
    1. Protest this budget request on the Interior Department’s Facebook page by downloading the below graphic and uploading it to this post.

    2. Tweet at President Biden and Secretary Haaland using this automated Tweet.
    3. Email Secretary Haaland at exsec@ios.doi.gov. Suggested message:
      “I strongly oppose your cruel plan to remove tens of thousands of wild horses and burros from our public lands. I’m especially disappointed that you blame wild horses and burros for environmental damage and climate change while you continue to ignore livestock grazing, which is the real contributor to these issues. Humane on-range management alternatives — including birth control and removing livestock — are available, scientifically-recommended, and cost-effective. I’m very disappointed that you are prioritizing livestock interests over the interests of the 80 percent of Americans who want wild horses and burros protected, not rounded up, penned, and slaughtered.” 
    4. Ask Congress to fund humane wild horse management.

    Thank you,

Katherine Heigl joins the fight to save the Onaqui wild horses!

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The Onaqui wild horses of the West Desert in Utah just gained a powerful voice in the battle to save the iconic herd from a brutal helicopter roundup planned by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) this summer. What’s at stake: the fate of 300 of the 500 Onaqui wild horses targeted for removal by the BLM. 

Actress Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy), is using her platform to join AWHC in speaking out for this beloved herd, known for its striking colors, unique social dynamics, and acclimation to photographers and other visitors from all over the world. 

We’re grateful to Katherine for tweeting out a link to our website, saveonaqui.com, spreading the word about the plight of these cherished mustangs and ways to join the fight to save them!

A growing chorus of celebrities and activists is speaking out against the BLM’s inhumane mass roundup and removal of thousands of wild horses and burros every year from the public lands they call home. As was revealed by our investigation and confirmed by a New York Times exposé — far too many captured wild horses and burros are adopted then dumped at slaughter auctions across the country.

Katherine makes a great point: 
Why are we spending so much time and money to round up the Onaqui wild horses, separating their family groups, terrorizing or even killing them, when there is already a humane fertility control program in place to control the population? 

The Onaqui roundup is scheduled to start on July 12th. Please take action now to help us stop it: Visit saveonaqui.com to learn how you can protect the Onaqui wild horses today!

Here are a few ways you can help right now:

ANOTHER 911 – CATCHER CALLED – WILL YOU SAVE MORE BABIES? MORE HEARTBREAK AND BEAUTIFUL LIVES SAVED!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Y’ALL SAVED 9 BEAUTIFUL BABIES!!! THANK YOU!

CATCHER CALLED – Can we take horses Sunday? I have 48 hours to let him know if we can take them. I know folks are stretched thin, but it is in your hands. I will do the work if we have the funds.

Sadly, Little Warrior came in with excruciating and deadly injuries from a coyote attack. Although it breaks my heart to lose them, I am grateful I could manage his pain, and give him a chance. Sadly Doc said his joint was septic and with the additional injuries he simply had no chance. I held him in my arms and we set our Little Warrior free. He fought and escaped the coyote, and also fought to live.
I would have given anything to be able to save him. Seems like the tears just don’t stop.

I know the pictures are hard to look at, but imagine actually having to take care of them. Cleaning them is so hard. It is not only totally gross, but HAS to be done and is painful for the babies, even with pain medication. I just wanted y’all to know how badly he really was injured and have a tiny picture of what rescues deal with.

Our beautiful little Caramel Cookie had no chance eitherHer ankle was NOT FUSED and I can’t even imagine the pain she was in. All that weight on that broken, shifting foot. Then add the injuries to her back leg. You could literally feel the pain leaving as she was sedated and then set free. EVEN KNOWING IT WAS THE RIGHT THING, MY HEART IS STILL ONCE AGAIN SHATTERED! The worst part is knowing someone deliberately left her like that.

It is killing me to have to clean up the mess left by uncaring owners and that I have to make the decisions they should have. However, I know God is putting them in front of me so they do get taken care of. So as long as we can afford to keep doing the work, I will continue to fight for these precious souls.

Even as I am once again reeling from the loss, I have 8 babies, 3 of which are struggling to survive, and Chica here to take care of. Now I am standing by for more on Sunday, and it is just starting. PLEASE HELP MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO SAY YES!

We so appreciate ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT! There are more babies coming and it looks like it is going to be a really busy year. I cannot do this without you. Please say a prayer and let’s keep saving lives! It’s up to you!
