We’re suing to stop CA wild horse slaughter

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

If we don’t stop it, the federal government will sell hundreds of wild horses, including those pictured below, for slaughter.

We just filed a lawsuit to block this horrible plan, and we need your support.

Unbelievably, in less than 90 days, the U.S. Forest Service intends to offer federally-protected wild horses for sale without limitation on slaughter. The horses — who are being rounded up right now from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in the Modoc National Forest near Alturas, California — will be sold by the trailerload for $1 a piece. Kill buyers will be allowed to purchase these wild horses and truck them across the border to Canadian slaughter plants, where these American icons will be butchered and turned into horsemeat for human consumption overseas.

Not on our watch. 

To make sure we’re successful, we need to raise $20,000 by this Friday. Donate now, and help us stop the federal government from selling these cherished wild horses for slaughter.

The Forest Service’s roundup and slaughter plan is one of the most brazen acts of destruction we’ve seen this year. And all so that ranchers who hold grazing permits in the Forest can put MORE cattle on our public lands.

If everyone steps up, we can stop this. Please donate now to stop wild horse slaughter and help us reach our $20,000 fundraising goal by this Friday.

Thank you!

Gratefully,

CHILLY PEPPER – UPDATE – 7 MORE HORSES – CAN WE SAVE THEM BY TOMORROW????? 11 HORSES ALREADY SAVED IN LAST 2 DAYS

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THE GROUP SHOWN ABOVE ARE MY NEW “DEADLINE” FOR TOMORROW – DO YOU WANT TO SAVE THEM AS WELL?

YOU DID IT! We SAVED 11 lives in the last two days with your love and support. We have enough to vet these kids, but now the above lives are at stake.

I am sure you already know the next line. ANOTHER PHONE CALL – I have til tomorrow to raise the funds for 7 MORE HORSES!

We ended up with 2 emaciated mares, one so bad that she went down right after stepping into the trailer. She is an older mare, and we named her “Gramama” as she has a raggedy little foal at her side. She is an excellent mama, and has given every single ounce of strength she has to her little boy “Buster Brown”.

The other mare named “Cassie”, has been horribly abused and is skin and bones at best. She has injuries all over her body from being used as a “tripping horse” and for roping practice.

I could not leave these two mares behind, so the total yesterday was 10, and we picked up a gorgeous guy “Blacktop” the day before. (My first view of him he was running down the road, happily boot scooting all over the black top.)

Unbelievably, as I was cooking dinner in the horse trailer, Mel walked in and handed me the phone. It was another one of the catchers, and he was telling me about the babies. He asked me if color matters to me, and I told him no. We pay the same and we handle every horse the same, no matter what they look like. Then he asked if we wanted the mares. So let’s save them too, because we can.

So IF WE CAN RAISE ENOUGH TO PURCHASE AND VET 7 MORE KIDS, they will be arriving tomorrow just in time to get their bloodwork drawn. Then we can come back when the paperwork is clear and pick them up. We have a chance to save the moms, so I cannot in good faith, not at least give everyone the opportunity to save their lives. At this point the trailers will both be full, so thankfully, we will be able to focus on getting these horses home and placed.

Below are some of the ones we (YOU) just saved, that are currently at Mama Mel’s Urgent Care Nursery.

Thank you as always, and please know that although we appreciate each and every dollar, we NEVER want anyone to feel pressure or do more than is right or comfortable for them. But we can never get enough prayers.

Thank you for saving the kids below!!

Saving the wild horses of California

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

By now you’ve probably heard about the situation in California, as a thousand federally-protected wild horses are being rounded up from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in the Modoc National Forest. Hundreds of these iconic mustangs are in danger of being sold without limitation on slaughter. AWHC is working on numerous fronts to address this crisis – and our activism is working.

Here’s an update on the work we’re doing:

  • Federal – We’re working to close the technical loophole that the Forest Service is using to evade the Congressional prohibition on selling federally protected wild horses for slaughter. Our team also reached out to California Senator Dianne Feinstein about this situation and she immediately responded with a strongly worded letter to the Forest Service.
  • State –  Under California law, the sale of horses for slaughter for human consumption is a felony. We worked with Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) to generate a sign on letter from 23 members of the California legislature opposing the Forest Service’s cruel plans. We’ve also asked the Attorney General to intervene to ensure that California’s law banning horse slaughter is enforced.
  • Legal – We’re teaming up with the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) and our legal team at Meyer Glitzenstein and Eubanks to take legal action to stop the Forest Service from selling the federally-protected wild horses without limitation on slaughter.
  • Public Support –  We’ve generated thousands of phone calls and emails to the Forest Service and our media outreach has resulted in unprecedented local, state and national news coverage of the Forest Service’s cruel plan for our wild horses! Additionally, we have had observers onsite daily at the roundup to document, via photograph and video, the Forest Service’s treatment of these national icons.
  • We’re organizing a rally on October 24, 2018 at the U.S. Forest Service Region 5 headquarters in Vallejo, California.
  • Placement – We’re actively seeking options for placing larger numbers of Devil’s Garden horses who have been rounded up and are in need of safe forever homes.
  • Long-term Management  – We’ve offered to partner with the Forest Service to implement a pilot fertility control program in the Devils Garden Wild Horse Territory – at no cost to taxpayers — as a first step toward developing a long-term, humane management plan for California’s largest, most significant wild horse population. We’ve also offered to facilitate financial compensation of ranchers for retirement or reduced use of livestock grazing permits for public lands within the territory. These are win-win solutions that can and should be implemented.

Here’s how you can help:

Bottom line: Our activism is working. The Forest Service has already decided to extend the time during which horses will not be sold for slaughter. The horses aren’t safe yet, but we’ve got their attention and we must keep pushing!

Thank you for all of your support in saving the lives of these wild horses.

Remember Beau? Do you Relish?

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

We are exploring interest in participating in the Veteran’s Day Parade in Auburn on Saturday, November 10, 2018.

If AAE participates in support of our Veteran’s, who would like to join us?

Please email wendy@allaboutequine.org with a head count.

Remember Beau??

Beau is an elder Arabian gent about 28, and he came to AAE after his elder owner could no longer provide care, and his family caregiver was relocating out of state.  Beau had been with his family almost all of his life.  He was much loved, but his family may not have understood the need for continued dental care, even when horses are old and have only a few teeth.  We know they only wanted to best for him and we are glad we were able to help. With so many horses in need, that is not always the case.
After much needed dental, hoof care, sheath cleaning, vaccines, deworming, and a lot of love from volunteers, look at him now….

Beau is at the tail end of his refeeding program, and he is available for adoption.  Beau is a lovely ol’ guy.  He loves attention and really enjoys a long grooming session.  He was ridden a lot in his younger days.  His last riding relationship was a couple years ago with a 12 year old girl in a lease situation.  We were told it was a great relationship, but not much more about his girl’s experience or what activities they did, only that he rode very well for his age.
In his younger years, Beau was part of a three horse team that rode across the US on the Pony Express Trail.  He rode about 800 of the 2000 miles.  About seven years ago, he had a bout of laminitis/founder, but thankfully, he recovered very well. Dr. Stolba provided care for this guy back then, but unfortunately, she hadn’t seen him for about three years when he arrived at AAE.  He didn’t appear to have been trimmed in a while, but updated radiographs showed no obvious changes in his hooves since his episode seven years ago.  He was a tad tender footed with thin soles, so we had shoes placed on his fronts for now.
Beau is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof and dental care. He has very good ground manners, he ties and stands for the farrier.  With a long history of riding, he should load and trailer fine, but hasn’t yet been tested since he arrived.  He was tested for Cushing’s and results were negative.  Because he has only a few teeth left, he needs a strictly pelleted diet and with feed that is appropriate for a horse that has foundered.  His future housing should not be in a green, grassy pasture.
Beau is looking for a new home where he will be doted on and pampered like the good ol’ guy that he is.  He might have some light riding in his future, but priority should be a solid companion home, and the riding should be a bonus (not a requirement).  Beau should NOT be an only horse. During his time with AAE, he has bonded tightly to his buddies, at least a couple other horses might be best.  He gets anxious when he is in his paddocks and his buddies leave, are taken out/away or wander away from him.  He does fine when he is taken out and away from his paddock.
Interested in giving this gorgeous guy a soft landing in a forever home to live out his years?  For more info about our adoption process, please visit our website or

URGENT CALL TO ACTION – BABIES (TO WEANLINGS) ARE IN THE TRAP RIGHT NOW. ANOTHER DEADLINE – WE MISSED THE LAST ONE

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Wow, the phone calls just keep coming. We had some heartbreak last week as I was called for 5 weanlings. I knew we would have a deadline, but was given no idea how short it would be. Sadly, I didn’t have enough time to find a place where we could keep them or even begin to put out a fundraiser, before it was too late. I sent the text as soon as I found a place, but received one back saying “I already got rid of them”. I do not know for sure what that means, but we were pretty close to, if not the “last resort”. These “deadlines” are serious as far as being able to commit so we can have a chance to save them.

My understanding is that the babies have to be 400# to be loaded onto the truck. I believe most shippers do not want babies that small on board, due to injuries and babies being trampled or squished during transport, but I can honestly not say what happened to those 5 babies.

We are in Yakima working on Mama Mel’s Urgent Care Nursery, as it is imperative that it is ready for winter babies. My phone rang and my heart sank. It was one of the catchers, and he told me he has orphaned babies (ages unspecified) in his trap right now. I NEED TO KNOW WITHIN A FEW HOURS IF THERE IS A CHANCE WE CAN PULL THIS OFF. WE NEED FUNDS FOR PURCHASE, VETTING AND TRANSPORT. We do not have a number, it could be 5 or many more. I was told there are 100 horses where they are trapping and they thought they might get a third. They could get more or less and so there is no way to know how many babies we could end up with. If there are a lot, how do you decide who lives and dies? That is why we need to make sure we have the funds ready to go when it is time.

Thankfully some of the folks we work with on a regular basis have been building their out reach, so these kids will not have to come back to Chilly Pepper.

PLEASE let’s NOT miss another deadline. I had no idea the time was so short when we got the last call. But I do know I have to have the answer by tomorrow so we can say yes and save these babies.

I know it is a regular thing for us to ask for urgent help. We certainly did not choose to be on the front lines. However, God has put us here for a reason and y’all are part of this amazing journey. The number of lives YOU have made it possible to save is absolutely astonishing. But as most of you know, the horses are in crisis, so instead of having the winter off to “re-group” like we are supposed to (haha), the emergencies just keep coming.

So I hope y’all understand that we have to ask, because without funding these babies could die. We are still trying to raise enough funds to pick up the miniatures and make sure they are all properly vetted with Health certs etc. Vetting is scheduled for the 22nd if we have the funds.

On a good note, we are making great progress on the “Nursery”, considering how many horses we are involved in rescuing at this time.

AGAIN, THANK YOU AS ALWAYS for the love and support. As soon as we get a spare minute I will be back on our “thank you’s”.

THE LIVES YOU SAVED, AND THE MINIS ARE COMING – WELL, WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM Y’ALL, WE CAN SAVE 10 MORE LIVES

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

The above are some of the lives you just saved. As you can see, some are barely alive and others are looking ok.

ANOTHER PHONE CALL – The mini’s we have been on standby for, since a couple of months ago, will be ready for us in the coming weeks. However, we need funds as always to get these kids to safety and vetted etc. Do you want to save these little cuties? See photos below.

In the meantime, Matt picked up a 20+ mare yesterday. It seems like they are coming out of the woodwork. She is beautiful, but definitely a grandma, and needs TLC and her lil hoofers done.

The other days was a really rough day. In the midst of all that is going on, we lost one of our most recently rescued donkeys. So now as we get ready to head to WA to pick up the babies, we are filled with so many emotions. Two days ago we lost our beautiful “Long Ears”. He had been adopted and was about to be loaded for his new home, when Matt told me he “was not feeling it – as far as driving that day”. We have both learned to listen to that little voice because over and over God has kept us safe when we listen.

Hours later I would be calling the vet to come out. Long Ears had went down and . did not get up. At first he was not concerned. He was in good spirits and just lay there reaching out and grabbing bites of hay. We spent most of the day with him, giving him a chance to rest and trying to help him when he wanted to get up. I spoke with the vet and even before she arrived, Long Ears let me know without a doubt that he was done. Thankfully it was a quick change, and he did not lay suffering for hours. The vet said he was a very old man, and due to the starvation he went through, who knows what damage was done internally.

Long Ears came in skin and bones, with basically no muscle in his back end. From the second Matt picked him up to the last few minutes we spent with him, this wonderful and amazing donkey was surrounded by love. He was happy and very vocal when it was time for dinner, and just LOVED to be loved on.

Although once again, my heart was in pieces, I was thanking God for not letting that little girl lose her new donkey. Sadly for me, but luckily for the little girl waiting for her forever donkey, I had one other little mini donk that we were planning on using for the Sunshine & Smiles program. So unbeknownst to that little girl, we sent him instead. Today, they are together and it is a match made in heaven.

So now we are getting ready to pick up the babies in Yakima. Matt delivered 3 of the kids to their new homes yesterday and our friend in Idaho took 3 of the babies from the last rescue, to help us place them.

The good news is that out of 9 horses y’all just saved, 5 have been adopted, and 3 are staying here for some much needed TLC! As always, we have been running non-stop and want to THANK Y’ALL from the bottom of our hearts for helping save these beautiful souls. Obviously several of them would have not even had a chance at survival if y’all had not stepped up!

We appreciate the love and support and are confident that we can once again “git ‘er done”, and save the 10 minis that we are once again on stand by for.

URGENT: California’s wild horses are in danger of slaughter

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

Act Now: California Wild Horses to be Sold for Slaughter

The U.S. Forest Service is planning to round up and remove 1,000 wild horses from California’s largest federally-protected habitat area – the 233,000-acre Devils Garden Wild Horse Territory in the Modoc National Forest near Alturas. Even worse, the Forest Service intends to sell captured horses age 10 and over “without limitation,” allowing kill buyers to purchase a truckload of 36 horses per week for slaughter!  We can’t let this happen – especially in California, a state that has banned the cruel practice of horse slaughter (including export for slaughter) for two decades! The roundup starts as early as next week, so time is of the essence.

 

Preliminary Injuction Filed to Stop Mare Experiments

Late last week, AWHC, the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) and The Cloud Foundation filed a motion for preliminary injunction to stop the BLM from performing risky and inhumane sterilization experiments on wild mares in Oregon. The BLM plans to begin the experiments — which involve a veterinarian placing his hand into a mare’s abdominal cavity via an incision in her vaginal wall, manually locating the ovaries, then twisting, severing and removing them by using a rod-like tool with a chain on the end — in early November.  Check out our press release below, with more information on this critically important legal action.

 

Warm Spring Roundup Begins

On Tuesday, the BLM began the roundup and removal of wild horses from the Warm Spring Herd Management Area (HMA) in Oregon. The BLM intends to round up 100% of the wild horses and burros in the Warm Springs HMA (approximately 800) AND permanently remove 685 horses and burros from their homes on our public lands in this area. The agency wants to use 100 of the captured mares in the brutal sterilization experiments described above. Read our field observer’s reports from the roundup below.

6 MORE FOALS, AND WE NEED TO SET UP THE NURSERY IMMEDIATELY! PLEASE HELP NOW SO WE CAN SAVE THEM!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

More babies are coming in. IN ADDITION to the 4 that we just saved, there are SIX MORE, including Lil Cash (shown above) who is only a month or two old. Due to the loss of life last winter, many of the mares are foaling out of the normal foal season. So we will need LOTS of Foal Lac and milk pellets etc.

The new nursery is NOT set up, and there are only a few panels and no shelteras the other rescue took everything when they shut down the “orphanage”. The normal trapping season is beyond over, but much like last year they just continue to round up these beautiful souls, non-stop. The new nursery was not supposed to be open, but babies do not come at our convenience, and this is an emergency situation. (There are times when I wish we were not always on the front line having to deal with immediate life saving issues. Thankfully y’all are amazing!)

Right now the winds are blowing 40 miles an hour and we need to get up there, save the rest of the babies and start setting up the nursery NOW!! These babies have been through more horror than any horse should see in it’s entire life, and some of them are only a month or two old. We had hoped to be able to slowly raise funds and get it set up before trapping started again next spring. However, as always, that is obviously not happening.

This is so overwhelming. It sounds whiny, but I just had surgery 2 weeks ago and Matt is not even home yet with the 9 y’all just saved. So we are a tiny bit exhausted but once again, I need to ask folks to step up! (ok – crying over.)

I have been told “you can just say no”. Well, I cannot look at a baby who is not only innocent, but terrified, hungry and most often in very poor shape and say let it die because it is inconvenient , especially knowing that their moms are literally on the truck on the way to a horrific and painful death.

CAN YOU SAY NO to a tiny innocent orphan? I hope not. We can purchase, insulate and prepare a smaller nursery building similar to the ones we use in NV for our nursery and critical care units for about $3000. That would enable us to set it up exactly how it should be. The weather is changing fast and it is critical that we have the proper facilities so we can provide the care they truly deserve.

I couldn’t believe it when I got called for 2 more today. We have had the vet out twice and it was roughly $445 BOTH TIMES. Now we have to call her to come out again, and it will be about $350 for the 2 new kids. But we have to do things the right way, so I am hoping and praying we can raise enough funds to pay the vet for the last 2 times, the upcoming visit and be able to get a shelter up in the next week. (So for these 10 foals, the vet bill is roughly $1200 – $1300, and this does NOT include the cost of saving them, bringing them home or taking care of them.)

SO WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP FROM THE FRONT LINES ONCE AGAIN.You are the difference for these innocent souls, and we thank each and every one of you who donate, send prayers, share the information and are part of our Chilly Pepper Family. Once again we will do the work if we have the funding.

BLM Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board to Meet – Take Action

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

Next week, the National BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board meets for the first time since the BLM delivered its disastrous and deadly report to Congress.

Our team will be there. But we need you to submit public comments to this committee now so they know where Americans stand.

This board is supposed to represent stakeholders that include the public, science, wild horse advocacy, environmental and wildlife concerns. It’s time for its members to stop doing the bidding of the special interest livestock lobby, which continues to profit greatly from the BLM’s mustang roundup program. We need to be heard because the majority of Advisory Board members certainly aren’t representing the wishes of the American public. That was obvious when the board voted to recommend the mass destruction and sale for slaughter of the nearly 50,000 wild horses and burros in holding facilities. Only one member of this Advisory Board – our friend and colleague Ginger Kathrens, Executive Director of The Cloud Foundation – voted no.

It’s time to let this board know that Americans will not stand for the Advisory Board’s disregard of the public will, scientific recommendations and the welfare of our iconic wild horses and burros.

Thanks for standing with us and our wild horses and burros,

The AWHC Team

AAE support of DreamCatcher herd reduction efforts:
During 2017 and 2018, AAE has supported the herd reduction efforts of DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke in November of 2016.  Though preservation of genetic lines were part of DC’s mission, none of the boys were castrated, the horses lived in a free range environment, and overpopulation became an issue.  In May and July 2017, with a new director in place, over 90 colts and stallions were gelded.  Though tremendous efforts were made to keep mares and stallions separate, sadly, some mares were impregnated for 2018 foals.
For AAE, it all started with an orphan foal, that little Rascal, in April 2017! We continued to support and adopt.  We had another orphan colt, Cowboy, arrive in May, and June brought three young geldings, Waylon, Whitley and Walker.  Then came the first three burros, followed by Ford, Gentry and her colt, Foley.  Two more burros topped off the year.
The following horses/burros were ADOPTED in 2017 and 2018:

 
COWBOY
 
     
WAYLON, WHITLEY, & WALKER
 
 

 

BURRO ZAC, 
BURRO ZAC, & 
BURRO JOE
 

 

BURRO BROWN &
BURRO GRAY

GENTRY &
FORD (ADOPTION PENDING)
 
The new year brought five young girls the end of February:  June, Kitty, Dixie, Dolly, and Patsy.  An unexpected delivery the beginning of March brought mom, Martina, and wee little filly, Valentine.  More babies and more urgency to get them out of the winter weather brought Tegan and colt, Austin, Gypsy and filly, Calico Girl, and Kelsea and days old colt, Rucker.
Unexpectedly, we learned June was pregnant, and along came Johnny in April.  One more call for help came in early May when travel plans were complicated by a mom that wouldn’t let little one nurse.  Tae and days old filly, Maddie, came and thankfully worked through their challenges.  That filled our barn and paddocks for most of the year, and we are happy to be able to support DC’s efforts.
 
Because of your support, AAE has been able to continue to support horses in need. 
The following horses are (or will soon be) AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION.  Click their name to visit their page for more information.

Re: Breaking: We just sued the BLM

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Wanted to make sure you saw that we’re suing BLM. Can you chip in to support our efforts?

Today, we filed a lawsuit in Oregon to stop the BLM from conducting cruel and dangerous sterilization surgeries to remove the ovaries of wild mares.

The BLM’s plans violate the U.S. Constitution and three federal laws – and they pose a serious, dangerous threat to wild horses. Our suit asks for an immediate injunction to stop these experimental procedures from moving forward.

We can win this in court but we need your help. Donate now, and help us stop the BLM’s cruel sterilization experiments.

The experiments are gruesome and painful: a veterinarian inserts his arm into a mares’ abdominal cavity through an incision in the vaginal wall, manually locates the ovaries, then twists, severs and removes them using a rod like tool with a chain on the end. The procedure is outdated, inhumane and will subject the mares to life-threatening complications. The National Academy of Sciences itself warned the BLM that it is too risky for field application, but the BLM just ignored that warning.

We know the agency is bought off by special interests, which is why we must turn to the courts to stop this. We can win this case, and we’ve teamed up with our colleagues at The Cloud Foundation and Animal Welfare Institute to ensure that we do!

This legal strategy is costly. Please donate now to help us fund this lawsuit and keep it going!

Starting next month, the BLM plans to start rounding up 100 percent of the wild horses in the Warm Springs Herd Management Area in southeastern Oregon. An estimated 685 horses will be permanently removed and another 100 mares will be surgically sterilized. Chip in now, before it’s too late for these mares.

We need your support to win this fight.

Thanks,

NEARLY ALL ARE SAFE, BUT WE NEED TO SAVE ONE MORE…. We have a YOUNG, ONE EYED STALLION WHO WANTS TO GET ON OUR TRAILER, NOT THE SLAUGHTER TRUCK.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Quick update.

ONE MORE LIFE TO SAVE – A YOUNG STALLION WHO IS BLIND IN ONE EYE. HE NEEDS YOUR HELP TONIGHT!, and then our trailer will be full.

We (YOU) SAVED ALL 4 of the Yakima foals. One of them already has a potential adopter and thankfully the other 3 will be heading to one of our favorite “partners”, whom we work with every year and who is not only an angel, but an excellent “foal mama”. So ALL these are safe and will shortly be off of our feed bill as well.(We will be helping out with a small care package, but Dannielle will be saving the rescue a great deal of time and money and find the WA babies their perfect forever home.)

We were able to commit to save 3 horses, 2 donkey stallions, a mini and 1 heavily pregnant donkey mama. (The other 2 we were orginally trying to save were lucky and found other homes.

However, we have ONE MORE we NEED TO SAVE ASAP! He is a stallion, who is blind in one eye and needs to stay out of the slaughter pipeline. We always try to pull a few stallions no matter where we are as they often have so little chance to be saved.

We have most of the kids paid for, but sadly my truck is in the shop to the tune of about $1500. (We have already put over 30,000?? miles on her this year, and she is running strong but needed some new seals and a couple of repairs to avoid a major one). We just paid $443 to the vet in WA to get the health certificates and Coggins test so the 4 can go to their new homes, and we need a bit more funding to pull off saving the stallion and to keep the rescues, new saves and deliveries on the road.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SAVING ALL THESE LIVES. LET’S MAKE SURE WE CAN ADD THIS YOUNG, PARTIALLY BLIND STALLION TO THE HAPPY LIST!

We’re looking into legal action … and more news

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Sign the Petition to Stop the Roundups

We’re just 4,864 signatures away from our goal to encourage the BLM to stop the roundups! It’s crucial that we reach our goal for signatures this week, as we plan to take our petition to the national wild horse and burro advisory board meeting coming up in October. If we can show this strength in support of stopping the roundups, we could push the BLM to change their tactics of abuse. Help us raise awareness, and put an end to the brutality of BLM roundups. Sign the petition today.

 

As BLM Moves Forward with Barbaric Research, We Explore Legal Action

The BLM Burns District Office in Oregon announced last week that it will begin controversial experiments to remove the ovaries of wild mares next month. Now, AWHC along with the Animal Welfare Institute and the Cloud Foundation are evaluating all possible means to stop the experiments, including litigation. We have also been working to expose the BLM’s collusion with the pro-slaughter group, Protect the Harvest and its perverse program to showcase spayed fillies who have undergone this barbaric surgery. Read more below.

ANOTHER 911 – WILL YOU SAVE MY LIFE? IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ONGOING RESCUE, WE GOT AN EMERGENCY CALL FROM THE WA FEEDLOT.!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

911 ANOTHER URGENT CALL… As Matt was driving me home from surgery, we received an emergency call from the Shipper in WA. 4 babies need your help!

As we are the ONLY rescue he works with, it is up to us to save their lives. They literally have NO WHERE ELSE to go. They are possibly 5 or 6 months old, and it only takes 400 pounds to get them on the slaughter truck (or at least that is what I have been told).

So instead of staying home taking care of me for the next 5 days or so, Matt will be dropping me off tomorrow, picking up his truck from the shop and heading to WA to save these babies, (IF we can raise funds to bail, vet and bring them home to safety).

We so appreciate the donations y’all have sent to save the horses we were already working on, and thanks to your generosity we were able to secure the safety of 4 of them. Thankfully the palomino and the heavily bred mare were saved by someone else, so we were able to save a gelding ready to ship, the badly beat up horse, one of the donkeys and the branded mustang mare. We are hoping to save more, but it will depend on funding.

But that rescue is on hold, as this is truly a “now” emergency and we have to make sure we do what we can to keep these guys safe.

These babies desperately need your help to save them, and that requires funding, as WE ARE THE ONLY THING BETWEEN THEM AND THE DEADLY TRUCK. Once again, we will be running on faith, as I know that God put them in front of us and it certainly was not to let them die.

So please help us once again, and let’s bring these kids to safety.

Thank you as always, for your love and support for these horses.

The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue:

 

 

NEWS FLASH !!

We are very happy and grateful to once again be the recipients of a matching donation challenge. This could not have come at a better time for us. I think due to the fact that winter will not be far away, we have started to get a lot of calls about animals needing to be surrendered. This means we will need more resources to ensure having enough hay on hand. We have every animal that comes in seen by a veterinarian which can and does quickly turn in to a large bill. We will need all the help we can get!

Every donation made between now and November 1, 2018 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $5,000.00!

By taking advantage of this incredibly generous offer you can double the impact of your donation. Doing so will help every donkey, mule, and hinny we care for.

We are so blown away by this act of incredible generosity by donors who wish to remain anonymous.

Please do what you can!

GO TIME AGAIN – CAN WE SAVE THESE BEAUTIFUL SOULS? AS ALWAYS, CLOCK IS TICKING – DEADLINES VARY 24 HRS – 5 DAYS!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Hi y’all,

Thank you for saving the last group of Texas kids. At the bottom of the page you will see a bit of what we are facing with their rehab.

HOWEVER, once again we received a call asking for help. The above kids are some of the ones we were asked to save. (We won’t know for sure which ones we will be able to save until we have the funds to secure them. But if one is already safe, we will save another one)

As Matt is going to be a third of the way there when he delivers the next group of horses to their new homes, this would be the time to save some more lives.

We wanted to give everyone a chance to save these beautiful souls from the slaughterhouse floor and to help save more lives. We are more than willing to “git ‘er done” as long as we can raise enough funds to make it happen.

There is a heavily bred mare, a beautiful branded mustang mare, donkeys, injured kids etc. They all need our help and as always, time is of the essence.

I am heading for surgery on Monday, but it should be an outpatient type of thing, (just replacing my generator), and Matt is ready and willing to go get these kids when he delivers the other 6 to their new homes.

As always, it all depends on you. We will keep doing the work if we have the funds to do so. Out of the last 9, 6 are heading to their forever homes. As you can see by the pictures below, there are 3 who need intensive care and they will remain at Chilly Pepper for the time being. BOTH of the mare’s front hooves are in horrific shape, and she will need major care. Our beautiful Princess Sahreena was emaciated and she will need lots of love and care. She also came in with some pretty gnarly injuries, but they are healing well.

Please help us save the “new kids”. We are looking at about $6000 plus to hopefully save 9? more lives, including transportation, rescue and vetting to get them home.

Again, this is not our “normal rescue”, but since Matt is already headed that way, we got the call, and the timing is perfect to combine the two, we are definitely willing to go the extra mile if you want to save these kids and keep them off the slaughter truck.

[WATCH] Roundups at their worst

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The roundups this year are underway — and they’ve led to dozens of deaths of wild horses.

What’s worse is that most Americans are unaware of the tragedy that is happening on our public lands, funded by their tax dollars. That’s why we’re doing everything in our power to raise awareness of this abuse.

We need your help. Watch our new video that documents the atrocities of this year’s roundups, and share it with your friends and family.

WATCH AND SHARE

Helicopters chasing horses to the brink of exhaustion, foals being run to death and separated from their herd, innocent animals being driven into barbed wire – as soon as people hear about all of this cruelty, they’re against it. And when people come together to demand action, lawmakers will take notice.

If we bring awareness to this issue – by alerting people to the abuse that is going on behind their backs, we can put enough pressure on lawmakers to replace these barbaric roundups with modern, humane and scientific management practices.

Please watch our new video, and share it with your friends – so we can put a stop to this cruelty, once and for all.

Thank you,

Suzanne

ONE MORE MAMA WITH HER BABY – WILL YOU SAVE THEM TOO? Complications with the Texas kids

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

This beautiful mama and her baby are scheduled to ship in 3 days. WE CAN SAVE THEM WITH YOUR HELP! But once again it is up to you.

(I apologize for the quality of the photos, but they are all I have.)

Matt is still in Texas, as complications have arisen with 7 horses y’all just saved. All of the mares have clear Coggins (the blood test required for transport). However, only 2 of the mares received their Health certificates, so now we have to put the others in quarantine until we can get a Health certificate to bring them safely home.

It will cost up to $1500 to quarantine up to 30 days. Hopefully it won’t take that long to get them healthy enough to get the necessary paperwork. However, once we establish this “quarantine” we will be able to use it in the future at a fraction of the cost.

To complicate matters further, when Matt was heading back to “wait” for the vet to come out again, there were issues with the truck and off to the shop it went. That is the issue with having 16 year old vehicles and working them as hard as we do.Luckily, the truck is being repaired and will be ready to go today. We work really hard to keep them road worthy but they are old and never stop working.

Sadly, we are stuck at this point. We cannot bring the horses home who do not have the proper paperwork. Luckily we have a safe place to quarantine them, but we obviously did not figure for the additional expenses involved.

So once again we are asking our Chilly Pepper Family to not only SAVE ANOTHER MOM AND BABY!, but to help us get the funds to cover these unexpected costs, so we can quarantine these mama’s and their babies and get them home to safety as soon as we can.

BLM gallops ahead with plan to remove mare ovaries

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

BLM Plans to Remove Mares’ Ovaries…Again!

Last week, Colorado State University announced that it is withdrawing from participation in the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) mare sterilization research in Oregon. But the BLM is not letting the lack of academic affiliation stop it from proceeding with these barbaric experiments. Instead, the agency is just dropping CSU’s part in the study, which was to assess the harm to the horses from the study! Now the BLM will proceed without regard for or documentation of the pain and complications — including bleeding, infection and abortion — caused by performing the barbaric and risky surgery on wild mares. This is unacceptable, and we need to weigh in AGAIN to oppose the use of our tax dollars to fund these cruel experiments. 

 

BLM Doing Something Right in Colorado – Let’s Support It!

We criticize the BLM frequently for its mismanagement and mistreatment of our wild horses and burros, but when the agency is doing something right, we must acknowledge and support it. Such is the case in Colorado where the BLM is partnering with advocate TJ Holmes and a coalition of local groups to humanely manage the spectacular wild horses in the Spring Creek Basin Herd Management Area. Thanks to a robust fertility control program, no removals have taken place in this HMA for a number of years and no removals are planned. Now we need to weigh in to support the BLM’s proposal to prioritize bait trapping over traumatic helicopter roundups should removals be necessary in the future. Please add your name to our comments by clicking below!

 

Administration Takes Aim at Laws Protecting Wild Horses and Burros

The current Administration is promoting rollbacks of legal requirements for environmental review, public participation, and information disclosure that could have severe detrimental impacts on efforts to protect wild horses and burros. As always, we the people are the line that stands between these cherished animals and destruction, and we must continue to let Congress know that Americans oppose this Administration’s dangerous efforts to weaken legal protections for our wild horses and burros and the public lands they inhabit. Learn more by clicking below.

 

Roundup Recap

The BLM’s cruel roundup in Wyoming’s Red Desert ended last week, with the permanent removal 1,4444 horses from our public lands. Ten horses died in the roundup, including six foals, four of whom were literally run to death. Currently, the BLM is removing wild horses and burros from several public lands areas via bait trapping in Utah, Nevada and California, but the helicopters will take to the air again soon. See the latest info on the roundups and find out which herds are targeted next by clicking below.
