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.

Thanks,
Lin

We’re raising money this #GivingTuesday to keep wild horses WILD >>

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

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!

HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED → DONATE NOW

Thank you so much for your help, Meredith.

Announcing our biggest Giving Tuesday goal EVER!

0

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 everThis Giving Tuesday, we’re aiming to raise $75,000 so we have the resources necessary to fuel our work in the field, in courts, and on the Hill in 2022. 

You see, Giving Tuesday is our most critical fundraising day of the entire year. And, this year is even more significant because a generous donor and AWHC supporter, Lin Coonan, has offered to match all donations this Giving Tuesday up to $40,000!

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 your impact this Giving Tuesday?

UNLOCK THE MATCH →

So much is at stake in 2022. RIGHT NOW, the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Fiscal Year 2022 budget includes a proposed increase in funding that can be used toward wild horse and burro roundups and removals.

While this might seem disastrous, there’s still hope. The BLM just appointed their newest director, and we’re using every resource at our disposal to fight for meaningful change for wild horses and burros with this new transition in leadership. But timing is of the essence — we must act now.

Will you make a donation right now to help unlock our Giving Tuesday 2x Match so that we can DOUBLE our impact for wild horses in 2022?

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.

 

 

This #GivingTuesday and holiday season please consider making a donation to assure we have funding to continue the work we do and have similar stories to share in 2021.

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

On this #GivingTuesday we are continuing our countdown to 2020 with another story.

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
2201 Francisco Dr. #140-174
El Dorado Hills, CA  95762
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

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,

Today we put Thanks and Giving together for this global movement! This global day of giving is designed to give back to our communities and help those around us! Be the change you want to see in the world and help make a difference for the horses at AAE! We hope you can join us . This year our goal is $5000. This will help support the veterinary costs we incur for our horses throughout the year.  

With your support, horses like Rudy get a second chance .

Next to feed and supplement costs, 

AAE’s biggest annual expense is veterinary care.  
Your support helps provide needed veterinary care to assure the horses we take in are on a path to good health, and each horse’s health is understood.

Johnny’s are welcomed to the world.
 
Your support assures the horses at AAE are properly evaluated, receive appropriate care and treatment of health issues, and are properly addressed and/or maintained throughout the year.  This assures all suspect health issues are characterized appropriately and considered prior to adoption.
Your support meant a new life for Sandi  
Proper maintenance means providing annual vaccines, annual dental exams and floating/treatment, as needed (some more than once a year), hoof care about every eight weeks, and rotational deworming, usually every two to three months.  Additionally, all horses taken in at AAE are now microchipped, and DNA testing completed. 
 
You can help assure horses like Rascal have a chance a life
So far this year, your support has ensured:
  • 34 horses in need have been helped
  • 17 have found forever homes
  • 8 foals became weanlings looking for forever homes
  • as many as 54 horses have been fed and cared for during the year
  • hoof care, $50 per trim
  • over 50 horses have been vaccinated – nearly $100 a set
  • nearly 60 dentals have been completed with additional exams – dental costs ranging from $100-$272
  • 15 geldings had sheath cleanings during while sedated (after dentals) – add $58
  • five colts were castrated – four normal procedures $190 each (plus antibiotics) and one a crypt orchid, $915 
  • various lab work costs through the year exceeded $4500 
  • emergency care, surgery, radiographs exceeded $2o,000 (e.g. colics, hospitalization, wound care, growth removals, biopsies, laminitis evaluations, medication, etc.)
AAE’s costs for veterinary care through October 2018 have been close to $45,000, not including medications, first aid supplies 
and similar items stocked at the barn.
Only with your support can we continue helping horses in need.  Your support will assure AAE has the funding to provide needed veterinary care to horses in need.
 
Give horses like Beau another chance

We can’t thank you enough

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Yesterday went better than we ever could have hoped.

Across the country, supporters like you stepped up on Giving Tuesday in a huge way. We blew through our initial $25,000 goal, and got almost 1,000 individual donations. And because of our matching gift, all of those gifts will go twice as far.

We can’t thank you enough for your support — and it couldn’t come at a more crucial time. Your donations will fuel these critical programs to save wild horses and burros:

Litigation: Right now, our legal team is defending wild horses in two federal appellate court cases. We’re fighting to uphold our lower court victories against a rancher lawsuit seeking roundup and slaughter of Utah wild horses and the BLM’s attempts to destroy the Saylor Creek wild horse population in Idaho bysurgically sterilizing every stallion and mare living there. 

On the ground: As you read this, the AWHC team is in the field to document a BLM helicopter roundup underway today in Utah. We’re showing the world what’s happening to our wild horses and burros in these remote regions of the West, and we’re generating the public support necessary to stop our government’s cruel treatment of these national icons.

Advocacy: Our wild horses deserve the best possible representation in the halls of Washington, and that’s just what our bipartisan legislation team is doing — making sure that policies affecting wild horses are evidence-based, humane, and strictly enforced.

We can’t do this work without you. Thank you again for your support this Giving Tuesday and every day.

Sincerely,

Suzanne & the AWHC Team

PS. Didn’t get a chance to give yesterday? You can still chip in today to defend wild horses.

The following is from UHC:

Will you help the Unwanted Horse Coalition on this #GivingTuesday?

For the second year in a row, the UHC is participating in #GivingTuesday, but this time in two different ways!

1. Donate to the UHC to help support our popular Operation Gelding program, which provides materials, guidance, and financial support to organizations that wish to host low or  no-cost gelding clinics. Our goal is to raise $2,000 which will allow us to provide funding for one clinic, or up to 20 vouchers for individual horse owners in need. Donate $20.18 to help us start 2018 off on a good note-Donate today!

2. Help support your favorite 501c3 equine welfare organization for a chance to win them $500 in Operation Gelding vouchers by participating in our second annual #UNselfie contest on Facebook. To do this, take an #UNselfie with a previously “uwanted” horse, or a photo of that horse, while holding a sign with the name or logo of the 501c3 equine welfare organization you want to support on #GivingTuesday. We have extended the deadline to enter and the contest will run until midnight on November 28th. Photos can be posted on the original Facebook post here. 

The UHC operates underneath the auspices of the American Horse Council Foundation. We are an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; EIN 52-1760034.

Yes, I want to help the UHC on #GivingTuesday!
