It’s Giving Tuesday… can you help?


The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

As we kick off #GivingTuesday, I have a personal request.

A very generous donor has offered to match all donations up to $50,000 made today, which means your contribution — of any amount — is more important than ever.

Today is our most critical fundraising day of the entire year. We’ll rely on funds raised today to fuel our programs, staff, field equipment, lobbying and legal work into next year when the stakes could not be higher.

What we raise today, determines the strength of our work tomorrow, Meredith. So — for the love of our wild horses and burros — I’m asking personally if you’ll make a gift of any amount right now to ensure your donation has more impact than ever before.

Your donation today will be put to work, immediately — we have no time to lose. 2021 is gearing up to be a pivotal year for our wild horses and burros and we cannot afford to take our foot off the gas for even one day.

When you make a donation to support AWHC, here’s where your money is going in 2021:

  • Education and Advocacy — Often, we’re the only observers onsite at federal wild horse and burro roundups. We’re showing the world what our government is doing to these national icons, and we’re building the grassroots army necessary to finally win the battle for their protection.
  • In The Wild Management — Our humane fertility control program for Nevada’s Virginia Range mustangs continues to break all records as the largest humane wild horse management program in the world. Our team in Nevada is showing that humane management works and is leading the charge to make roundups and slaughter a relic of the past.
  • Legislation — We’re developing increasing numbers of champions from both sides of the aisle in Congress to speak up for wild horses and burros. Thanks to our work, dozens of Senators and Congresspeople have spoken out against cruel surgical sterilization and in favor of humane management, and the House passed a historic amendment to require funding for fertility control as an alternative to cruel and costly roundups.
  • Litigation — AWHC and the coalitions of animal welfare groups we’ve formed have won over 90% of the cases we file. We’ve filed multiple lawsuits and successfully brought about a federal injunction to halt the surgical sterilization of mares in Oregon, and we’re prepared to take legal action again to protect wild mares in Utah from this same cruel plan.

Today represents an incredible opportunity, not only to double your impact, but also to become a member of the AWHC family and the movement we’re building. Together, we will defend America’s wild horses and burros and ensure they remain wild and free. Donate today.

Thank you,
