From all of us here at the American Wild Horse Campaign, I want to thank you for making this Giving Tuesday one of our most successful ever! 

When we asked you to step up for wild horses and burros on our biggest fundraising day of the year, you responded with the generosity and passion that defines this incredible community.

Thanks to you, not only did we hit yesterday’s $100,000 goal — we exceeded it! 

Your generosity helped us to raise a record-breaking amount to continue fighting to keep America’s horses and burros wild and free on the public lands they call home.

Meredith: I want you to know how deeply grateful we are for your support. I hope you will celebrate this amazing success with us and know just how important you are to our growing herd.

The hard work is unfortunately never over, but together we are a force to be reckoned with, and more powerful every day because of your commitment to our cause.

Your generosity this Giving Tuesday will go far in 2023 as we:

  • Rescue more victims of the Adoption Incentive Program (AIP);
  • Expand our public awareness campaign;
  • Battle the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in court over the AIP and prepare for other legal challenges;
  • Expand our precedent-setting humane fertility control program to other key herds across the West;
  • Lobby and secure legislative victories like the $11 million in BLM funding towards reversible fertility control;
  • Push for the passage of important wild horse protection legislation, like the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Protection Act of 2022;
  • And so much more!

There will be more battles ahead in 2023, but for now, Meredith — THANK YOU again for your incredible generosity and support this Giving Tuesday.

An Unusual Giving Tuesday …

Unusual Giving Tuesday For SYA

Many of you have asked about the progress on regaining our non profit status. We’ve been working diligently to get it back. It’s been quite an uphill battle and is proving much more difficult than we anticipated. Here’s where we are; written by our secretary and new treasurer, Jean Cross.

This summer SYALER received a notice no nonprofit wants to hear. Our nonprofit status had been revoked due to the required 990s not being filed for three consecutive years. This came as a surprise to all of us. Our bookkeeper was sure she had filed at least the 2019 one, and we had copies of that file, which seemed to prove that. However, the IRS did not have any record of it and did not have any way of accepting it on its own at this late date. So, we were left to do the work and reconstruct the books for years. Our bookkeeper had gone silent. It may have just been too much for her to handle, we may never know. Our board being as small and tight as it is, jumped in to fill the gap. Bank accounts got new signers, QuickBooks got reconciled, and cash flow reports were run. This took a lot of time, as we had to recreate back to the beginning of 2019. The 990s were finished and mailed as of 11/21/2022. The required 1023 was filed on 11/20/2022. Now we wait. It could take as long as 18 months. Hopefully it won’t, but we have asked what do we do in the meantime?

This is what we do. We rally around the long ears. That is what we are all about. We have done what we can to make the IRS happy. When they reinstate our account, it will be reinstated back to the date they revoked it. All donations will still be tax deductible. This means, all of us will continue to work at what we do best. Hannah, Lauren and Laura will be seeing to the care of the farm and animals. Ann being our grounding support, Jean will be seeing to the books and reports, Elise will be supporting us by being our voice of reason.

We have taken in some animals this fall that have needed a lot of medical care, we are getting calls from people who need to surrender their animals to us before the worst of winter gets here. All that cost’s money. That is where you can help them, and us. Don’t be afraid of the punch to gut we received; we are more than that. You all have supported us through so much over the years. We are asking for that support again. The organizations that have graciously supported us in the past may not be able to until our paperwork comes back which means we will need the support of all you a little more this year then we have in the past. Please consider us when you plan your giving Tuesday/ year-end gift giving. The long ears thank you, and we as the board thank you.

Sincerely,

Ann Firestone

Thank you for supporting AAE on Giving Tuesday this year!

Because of you, we were able to raise over $13,000 for the horses and exceed our goal! We are humbled by the love you’ve shown for our horses. 

The AAE community is always so supportive and wonderful, but we were blown away by everyone’s generosity yesterday. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! We are grateful to be part of a community who is committed to helping horses-in-need.

 

This Giving Tuesday, let’s keep wild horses and burros WILD >>

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Giving Tuesday is finally here — and this year we’ve set ourmost ambitious Giving Tuesday fundraising goal EVER! 

Thanks to the help of generous AWHC supporters like you, we’ve unlocked our Giving Tuesday 2X Match, and now every single donation made today will be DOUBLED!

HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED → DONATE NOW!

We’ve set a goal to raise $100,000 before midnight tonight to fuel our fight for wild horses and burros as we head into 2023. 

This might seem like a lofty goal, but Giving Tuesday is our MOST critical fundraising day of the entire year, and with the enormous challenges facing these cherished animals, we will need to come out of the gates in 2023 ready to fight.

Can you help kickstart our Giving Tuesday fundraising with a donation to AWHC right now?

HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED → DONATE NOW!

Over the last two years, our Investigations Team has uncovered that the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) failed Adoption Incentive Program (AIP) has become a mechanism for nefarious people to launder wild horses and burros into the slaughter pipeline. Since we launched our investigation, our team has documented over 1,100 once-wild mustangs and burros in kill pens and slaughter auctions across the country.

That’s why we’re dedicating a portion of all the funds raised today to the countless innocent victims of the AIP.

Despite this evidence, top BLM officials went on record at the most recent Advisory Board meeting claiming that: “There is no credible information” showing horses or burros are being sent to slaughter as a result of the AIP.

This denial of truth is made all the more outrageous because our irrefutableevidence resulted in an explosive front-page New York Times exposé, ignited public outrage, and prompted Congress to take action calling for an investigation into the AIP.

In fact, our Congressional champions were so outraged that they made sure the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Protection Act of 2022 would ban the use of cash incentives for wild horse and burro adoptions! It’s time for the BLM to listen to reason and put an end to the AIP cash incentives that are sending these animals into the slaughter pipeline — and we’re not giving up until they do.

So, this Giving Tuesday, will you make a 2X Matched donation now to fuel our work to keep wild horses wild and away from traumatic helicopter roundups, out of overcrowded holding pens, and safe from the AIP’s slaughter pipeline?

HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED → DONATE NOW!

Thank you for your help, Meredith, and for caring so much about the lives of these magnificent animals.

Give Hope to Horses like Granger for #GivingTuesday

This is an update from All About Equine Rescue.

All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc.

Today is Giving Tuesday! 

Together we can give more horses a second chance

for a healthy, happy future and a life of love!

Horses like Granger.

Granger came to AAE in July 2022 after an animal control intervention to a neglect situation. He was malnourished, having to fight for food in a herd of eight other much younger horses.

Once at AAE, he was started on a refeeding program with soaked alfalfa pellets, and he received long overdue dental and vet care, including vaccines and a microchip. He also saw the farrier for a much needed hoof trim. Over the past several months, Granger’s weight and overall health has improved.

Granger is looking for his forever home. This 30 year old sweetheart was used on a ranch for trail rides in his previous life, but is now best suited as non-riding companion horse.

He is easy going, and well mannered (as long as food isn’t involved). He does well in a herd environment (as long as he is fed separately to assure he gets what he needs). His ground manners are generally good, he’s good with the farrier, and he loads and trailers well.

If you are interested in learning more about Granger to see if he’s a good fit, please visit our website.

We are incredibly grateful to have supporters like you so we can continue improving the lives of horses like Granger, one life at a time.

Our goal is to raise $7,500 today and at least $25,000 this holiday season. We need your help to reach that goal. Any gifts would be greatly appreciated as we move into and through 2023 to assure that together we can continue to do what we do.

GivingTuesday Is Next Week But You Can Give NOW!

This is an update from All About Equine Rescue.

All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc.

Thanks to the support and generosity of our AAE family, you’ve helped turn a challenging year into one filled with hope.

AAE moved to our new home in Pilot Hill. It has been a difficult transition at times and it is still a work in progress. In the coming year, we need to set up more equipment, including a new barn, and cross off a few other to-dos on our list. Nevertheless, we are beyond grateful to be here and are thankful to everyone who helped us make the move. We are excited for what the future holds and all that will be able to accomplish with this larger property.

This year we received an increased number of requests from families who needed to surrender their horses. We always strive to rescue as many as equine as we can, but with the increased requests along with the soaring hay costs and California fuel prices, we unfortunately weren’t able to help everyone who needed it. Thanks to you, we did rescue some equine who had special needs and gave them a second chance for a better life. Horses like Gabby, a retired racehorse who was emaciated and battling chronic issues; Elliott who struggled with urinating freely, and instead, had urine dribbling almost continuously, scalding his skin; old Granger who arrived undernourished, having to fight for food in a herd of eight other much younger horses; and most recently, a pair of donkeys (one in dire need of care) who were abandoned by their person. 

Our goal is to raise $7500 for GivingTuesday, beginning now until next week on November 29, and at least $25,000 this holiday season. We need your help to reach our goal. Tis the season for giving, and any gifts would be greatly appreciated as we move into and through 2023.

Together we can give more horses a second chance for a healthy, happy future and a life of love!

Kick off your Thanksgiving by giving to your favorite horses!

GivingTuesday might be a week away, but you don’t have to wait. You can donate now and help us reach our goal of $7500!

Whether you give $1000, $100, or $5, any amount makes a HUGE difference for the horses! No donation is too small. In fact, if every one of our followers made a $1 donation, we could surpass our GivingTuesday goal by thousands.

We have a chance to double our impact in 2023 — can you help?

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

I’m reaching out today because we have a chance to double our impact for wild horses and burros next year — but to do it, we need your help.

We set our biggest Giving Tuesday fundraising goal ever this year — and while it might seem high, our $100,000 goal will ensure we have the resources necessary to fuel our lifesaving programs in 2023.

A generous donor has offered to match every single donation that comes in towards our Giving Tuesday $100,000 goal! In order to unlock this 2X Match, we need your help → Can you chip in right now to help us raise $35,000 before tomorrow at midnight to unlock this critical match and kickstart our Giving Tuesday efforts?

UNLOCK THE MATCH →

Our Giving Tuesday fundraising is critical to our 2023 efforts, and this 2X Match will do SO much to power our fight next year — like fueling our Legal Fund as we continue to build a firewall of legal protections around wild horses and burros. 

A Bureau of Land Management (BLM) decision to round up thousands of wild horses from across the Wyoming Checkerboard is imminent. The plan will likely include the total eradication of two herds and the elimination of 50% of the state’s wild horse habitat. Our legal team is anticipating an upcoming court battle over the future of Wyoming’s iconic wild horses. 

Your support helps us defend wild horses and burros in court and is critical to us continuing our other lifesaving programs. Will you make a contribution now to help us raise $35,000 before tomorrow at midnight to unlock this critical 2X Match and kickstart our Giving Tuesday efforts?

Help us unlock our biggest Giving Tuesday goal EVER

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Giving Tuesday is just around the corner — and I’m excited to announce that this year, we’ve set our biggest fundraising goal ever. This Giving Tuesday, we’re aiming to raise $100,000 to have the necessary resources to fuel our work in the field, in courts, and in Congress in 2023. 

As one of our most loyal supporters, you know that Giving Tuesday is our most critical fundraising day of the entire year. And, this year is even more significant because a generous donor has offered to matchevery single donation that comes in towards our $100,000 Giving Tuesday goal bringing our total possible Giving Tuesday impact to $200,000!!

But, there’s a catch → in order to unlock this very special double match, we need to kickstart our Giving Tuesday fundraising and raise $35,000 before this Sunday at midnight! Will you make a donation right now to help us unlock this critical match and DOUBLE our impact this Giving Tuesday?

UNLOCK THE MATCH →

So much is at stake in 2023. As I write this, the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) holding facilities are reaching their breaking point. More wild horses and burros are confined in these facilities than ever before. Worse, the BLM’s own reports show widespread animal welfare violations at even the newest holding corrals, leading to disease outbreaks, overcrowding, and worse. Meanwhile, the cost to taxpayers for this program continues to skyrocket as the threat of slaughter for these innocent animals increases

While these circumstances are dire, the backlash against the BLM’s cruel and costly practices is growing. Mounting public and Congressional opposition is creating a mandate for change and the opportunity to make it happen. We know there is a better way to protect wild horses and burros and keep them in the wild where they belong. We’re proving it with our highly successful fertility control program in Nevada and by building key stakeholder partnerships for humane management of other western herds. 

But timing is of the essence — we must act now.

That is why this goal is so important. Will you make a donation right now to help unlock our Giving Tuesday 2X Match so that we can DOUBLE our impact in 2023 and keep our cherished wild horses and burros wild and free?

Your support made this our best Giving Tuesday ever

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

From each and every one of us at the American Wild Horse Campaign, I want to thank you for your dedication and support this Giving Tuesday. 

When we asked if you would step up for wild horses and burros on our biggest fundraising day of the year, you responded with the generosity and passion that defines this incredible community.

Thanks to you, not only did we hit yesterday’s $75,000 goal — we far surpassed it! Your generosity helped us to exceed our highest Giving Tuesday goal ever and raise a record-breaking sum towards our fight to keep America’s horses and burros wild and free on the public lands they call home.

We know that this was no easy feat, and we are unbelievably grateful for your support. We hope you celebrate this amazing success with us and know just how important you are to our growing herd.

The hard work is unfortunately never done, but it’s made more powerful, heartfelt, and hopeful because of you and your commitment to our cause. Your generosity this Giving Tuesday will go far in 2022 as we:

  • Rescue more victims of the Adoption Incentive Program (AIP) like the Elkhart 8;
  • Fight in our ongoing lawsuit against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for the termination of the AIP;
  • Continue to lobby and secure victories like the $11 million in BLM funding towards reversible immunocontraceptive fertility control;
  • And so much more in our fight to preserve the freedom of America’s wild horses and burros and make roundups a thing of the past.

There will be more battles ahead in 2022, but in the meantime, from all of us here at the American Wild Horse Campaign: Thank you again for your generosity and support this Giving Tuesday.

I’m proud to support AWHC this Giving Tuesday — will you join me?

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Lin — a life-long wild horse lover and friend of the American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC). I wanted to reach out to you today to tell you about all of the important work AWHC is doing and why I’m proud to match every donation made to AWHC today as part of Giving Tuesday.

My love for horses started when I was a child. I was drawn to these breathtaking animals because they are just the most magnificent creatures!

When I learned the plight of the wild horses and burros living on our public lands, I was appalled. They have lived in the wild for hundreds of years, but special interests have lobbied for decades for the removal of these cherished icons so that private cattle can graze on federal lands.

As a result, wild horses and burros face the constant threat of brutal helicopter roundups, which remove them from the lands they call home, split up family bands, and cause them immense trauma.

It’s a devastating reality, but I have hope for the future of America’s wild horses and burros. Why? Because AWHC is doing the hard work necessary to help these animals maintain their freedom.

Will you make a donation of whatever you can afford today to fuel AWHC’s fight for wild horses and burros? I’ll match every donation made today up to $40,000 so that your gift can go twice as far.

I’m proud to work with the AWHC because they are doing more than any other organization to save our wild mustangs and keep them free on our public lands.

From legal battles, to working with the federal government to create new laws that protect these cherished animals, to funding scientific research to provide humane alternatives to manage wild horse and burro populations instead of traumatic helicopter roundups — AWHC is doing it all!

I’m so proud to support the amazing work AWHC is doing, and I hope you will too. That’s why today, I will match every donation made to AWHC up to $40,000 so that your gift can go twice as far for wild horses and burros this holiday season.

Giving Tuesday is finally here — and so is our biggest Giving Tuesday fundraising goal EVER! 

Last week, we emailed you about an exciting match opportunity — and I’m thrilled to announce that we unlocked our Giving Tuesday 2x Match, so all gifts made today will be DOUBLED!

We set a goal to raise $75,000 before midnight tonight to fuel our fight for wild horses and burros as we head into 2022. This might seem like a lot, but Giving Tuesday is our most critical fundraising day of the entire year, and 2022 is set to be our busiest year yet!

Can you help kickstart our Giving Tuesday fundraising with a donation to AWHC right now?

HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED → DONATE NOW

Earlier this year, we uncovered the wild horse-to-slaughter pipeline that has resulted from the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) failed Adoption Incentive Program (AIP). After exposing this disastrous program, we filed a lawsuit against the BLM.

While the BLM announced reforms to the program as a result of the uproar we caused — their reforms are not enough and hundreds of horses and burros are still being dumped in kill pens.

That’s why we’re dedicating part of the funds raised today to the victims of the Adoption Incentive Program. Your donation today will help to continue our lawsuit against the BLM and fuel our fight to prevent more wild horses and burros from entering the slaughter pipeline through the AIP.

Will you make a 2x matched donation right now to fuel this important work?

The BLM has failed the wild horses and burros that have been placed in jeopardy through the Adoption Incentive Program. But our work to help rescue the AIP’s victims and litigate for the termination of the program won’t stop.

Will you make a donation to fuel our Legal Fund and our continued litigation against the BLM? Donate now and have your gift DOUBLED today!

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year & #GivingTuesday!

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

It’s time for one of our favorite holiday traditions! As we count down to 2021, join us every day this month as we share stories from the barn that show how your support has helped horses in 2020.

With the uncertainties and challenges of this year, we truly appreciate your generosity and support.

It is not only December 1st, but also #GivingTuesday!

#GivingTuesday is one global day dedicated to giving, volunteerism, and kindness in our communities! Whether you give your time, voice, or donations, we hope you can help make a difference in the lives of our horses TODAY.

To kick off December and #GivingTuessday, here is our first story about our first intakes of 2020 – Alaina, Cassadee, and Frankie!

Alaina

Cassadee

Frankie

When Alaina, a 20-ish senior mustang mare arrived, her hooves were extremely long, her teeth were in dire need of care, and she was mildly lame in her front hooves. Alaina’s hooves were trimmed, dental care provided, vaccines were updated, deworming was done, and she got a microchip. Radiographs revealed that she had extensive ringbone in her front pastern joints. She was started on a daily med to help with arthritis and ringbone. Fortunately, it helped tremendously, and Alaina was much more comfortable.

Alaina is a very sweet, mild-mannered mare. She is social and willing, and enjoyed the attention of our volunteers. It wasn’t too long before Alaina found her forever home as a companion to another mare that had just lost her long time friend! The two made an instant connection, and her new mom couldn’t be happier.

 

Cassadee is a 19-ish senior paint (yup) mare. Like Alaina, her basic care had been deferred, but fortunately, she wasn’t as impacted as Alaina. Cassadee’s hooves were trimmed, dental care provided, vaccines were updated, deworming was done, and she got a microchip. Cassadee is Frankie’s mom.

Cassadee is also a very mild-mannered, sweet-sweet mare. She’s calm, quiet, social, and very easy to handle. She gets along well with the herd and is simply an uncomplicated mare. Cass buddied up with our old guy, Amigo, and earned a job with our orientation team. She will remain at AAE as a resident program horse to help with our New Volunteer Orientation, and she’s a great teacher for new volunteers. Her quiet and willing personality make her a trustworthy partner teaching new volunteers about basic handling, grooming, and interacting with horses.

 

Frankie is a 13 year old paint (yup) mare. She’s Cassadee’s girl. Similarly, her basic care had been deferred. Frankie was lame when she arrived. Frankie’s hooves were trimmed, dental care provided, vaccines were updated, deworming was done, and she got a microchip. Radiographs showed arthritic changes around an old extensor process fracture in her right front and mild navicular changes. Corrective shoeing didn’t seem to help much. Other supportive efforts (e.g. joint injections, Legend, OsPhos) haven’t improved much either.

Frankie is a really nice, super mellow and sweet mare. She also loves attention and being in the presence of people. She’s quiet in hand, she’s good with her hooves and farrier, and she loads fine. Her biggest issue is, when it’s meal time and other horses are around, she is protective of her food (even when not threatened).

Frankie is available for adoption. She is looking for a companion only/non-riding home with at least one other horse. She could be a very nice option as a lead-line horse for smaller (light) children. If Frankie sounds like she could be your perfect equine friend, learn more about our adoption process here.

FINNEGAN

Many of you recognize Finnegan, an AAE Resident and Volunteer favorite!
Here’s a Finn update; gotta love Finn!
Some of you remember when…..
   
He was such a cute lil’ peanut, and he weaseled his way into everyone’s heart!
It was so bittersweet when Finn went out on adoption as a yearling, but
similarly bittersweet when he returned to AAE about six months later. Being the fave that he was, no one was too disappointed.
Finn’s growing into such an incredibly handsome guy, and
he’s continuing his education, too.
 
It wasn’t long after he returned that Finn earned himself a spot
as a resident program horse at AAE.  He’s brought fun and laughter to everyone.
His entertainment factor (and patriotism) is second to none.
  
However, the entertainment value comes at a cost.  Finn epitomizes the statement that horses will be horses.  Once a horse is rehabilitated with AAE the care doesn’t stop there. Horse like Finn find trouble….lameness, rattlesnakes, lacerations, colic, you name it!
     
He loves to give us a scare, and he must be one of Dr. Stolba’s favorite patients because she comes to see him more often than any of the others.
Shhh….we won’t tell Finn she comes because we call her.
He doesn’t understand why not everyone can watch over him like his mom did,
even though he watched over her, too.
That’s why he needs all of us to watch over him. Finn is no exception to the rule: Horses are incredibly sensitive, yet ever so resilient.
Have you heard about his latest trouble (this past Friday)?
…he found a nail, and not just any nail, but a 3-1/2″ nail while wondering the 10 acre pasture!
Everyone always says, “When Finn does it, he does it big”.
   
The Gods were watching over this goofy guy.  The radiograph below shows that the nail did not impact the tendon sheath; the dye does not penetrate beyond where the tip of the nail was.  Life threatening it was.  Though he is not out of the woods (risk of infection) yet, there was no major damage.
     
  Finn, we love you, but no more heart attacks, please.
Just charm us like you always do!
Finn says Thank You for caring about him and the rest of his herd!
BELIEVE, your support makes a difference.
DONATE and you can make more stories come true!
If you’d rather mail a donation, please make checks payable to
“All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc.” and send to

Your support this month will help us prepare for another year of helping horses by
funding our veterinary budget for 2020.
We can not do this without you!
Thank you all for your support!

This is HUGE! All donations will be matched through tomorrow

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We wanted to share this incredible news with you: A generous donor is pledging to match ALL donations up to $50,000 between now and midnight tomorrow for #GivingTuesday.

This is your chance to double your impact and power the fight to keep our wild horses and burros wild: Make a donation of any size to help us unlock this incredible gift and help us reach our #GivingTuesday fundraising goal! →

This year, a $5 billion plan was introduced that would put wild horses and burros on the pathway to extinction. The commercial livestock industry is pushing for the implementation of this plan that would accelerate roundups and remove an unprecedented number of wild horses and burros from our public lands.

Our wild horses and burros don’t have corporate lobbyists and PACs to advocate on their behalf. But our staff, our volunteers, and generous supporters like you? We give them a voice and we give them a fighting chance.

We will never stop fighting. Your donation helps us support legislation to prevent the slaughter of horses and powers our legal team to make roundups a thing of the past.

It gives our team the resources and tools it needs to document roundups and our volunteers the equipment necessary to dart horses with fertility control to prove there is an ethical, cost-effective way to manage wild horses that doesn’t include inhumane roundups and slaughter.

Can we count on you to make a matched donation ahead of #GivingTuesday? Every dollar and every donation makes all the difference in this fight and will help us secure this $50,000 gift.

Thank you,

American Wild Horse Campaign

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Our match expires at midnight. That means you only have a few hours left to DOUBLE your impact for wild horses and burros. Please, donate before midnight to fuel all of our work.

– AWHC Team

This year has been one of our most successful in history. We’ve beaten back attempts to strip slaughter protections from the budget, won injunctions against cruel sterilization experiments, and worked with legislators to strengthen protections for horses and public lands. We’ve sued the federal government to demand that they uphold the law, the intent of Congress and the will of the American people to protect our wild horses and burros on our public lands.

We’ve accomplished so much this year — and we must continue to build on our success. Today is Giving Tuesday, and a generous donors has stepped up to MATCH every gift we receive up to $50,000 from now until midnight. Can you chip in now and have your impact DOUBLED?

We have ambitious plans for next year — keeping up our fights for wild horses and burros in the courtroom, in the halls of Congress, and in the field. We must prevent the sale of horses for slaughter, protect them from cruel, inhumane roundups, and ensure that their home on our public lands is secure.

We can’t do it with you. Please donate today and take advantage of our matching gift.

Thanks,
