The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Meet “Tessa

Tessa is a special mare. She is in pretty rough shape as you can see, and her poor hoofers are horrible. But if you look at that face, well there is something special..

God keeps putting her in front of me, so I know I am supposed to save her.

She is scheduled to load on the trailer this afternoon, on that horrific trip to slaughter. So once again I have to decide if she lives or dies based on Faith. I truly believe that we are supposed to save her. Just look at those beautiful eyes. She is asking us to save her!

Will you please help me save this beautiful old girl?

Norman says THANK YOU SO MUCH! He celebrated his 3 week old birthday yesterday. He is still struggling with multiple issues but every day he survives gives him that much more strength. Please keep him in your prayers!

Not on our watch

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

19,000. 

That’s how many wild horses and burros the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is planning to remove from the wild this year. And sadly, that astounding number is just the beginning of the agency’s multi-year-long effort to rid western public lands of most of these iconic animals.

But not on our watch.

We are preparing for the major battles ahead and attacking disastrous proposals and programs with everything we’ve got. One way we do that is in the courts. Will you please chip in to our Legal Fund and help us fight back?

When our team heard about an influx of BLM mustangs and burros to kill pens, we investigated and documented a clear link between the BLM’s cash incentive adoption program and the increased number of wild horses and burros being sold at slaughter auctions. We got the New York Times to expose it.

Then we filed suit.

That case is pending in the courts. Will you pitch in to support the legal fight to protect wild horses and burros from slaughter?

Any day now, the BLM will release a plan to conduct its final assault on the wild horses of the Wyoming Checkerboard. As if the recent removal of nearly 4,000 of these animals wasn’t enough, the agency has future plans to round up and remove every wild horse that lives in the Great Divide Basin and Salt Wells Creek Herd Management Areas (HMA), drastically reduce the number of wild horses living in the Adobe Town HMA, and either eradicate the White Mountain wild horses immediately or slowly over time, by leaving a non-reproducing population of 200 surgically sterilized mustangs. 

We are going to need your help to fight back. Please fuel our Legal Fund now.

We have a long road ahead of us, but our legal team has a nearly 90% success rate and stands at the ready. 

Please consider donating today.

For the 19,000, 

The AWHC Team

Wow!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we are SO excited to share that we reached our $125,000 Year-End fundraising goal and UNLOCKED the $100,000 gift from our matching donor!!

From each and every one of us at the American Wild Horse Campaign — thank you so much for your part in helping us reach this goal! Please know that your support will make such an enormous difference for America’s wild horses and burros in 2022 as we continue our fight to keep these cherished animals wild. 

While we begin to tackle our 2022 agenda, we wanted to share with you the victories that AWHC supporters helped us to accomplish over the past year. Please read on for a recap of our 2021 accomplishments and a preview of what’s to come this year!

Exposed the Adoption Incentive Program 

After a months-long investigation, our team uncovered a slaughter pipeline that had been created by the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Adoption Incentive Program (AIP). In partnership with The New York Times, we exposed the disastrous program in a front-page report.

Uncovering this pipeline was only the first of several milestones in this fight. Shortly after the New York Times exposé, we garnered an overwhelming amount of support from the public, and dozens of members of Congress took action on Capitol Hill to reform the failed program. At the same time, AWHC filed suit against the BLM to challenge the AIP. Recently, government attorneys informed us that the BLM will be revealing a “new” Adoption Incentive Program in early 2022. We will be watching closely to ensure that the program is meaningfully reformed by ending the cash incentives that are fueling fraud and abuse. 

Made Strides on Capitol Hill

Our government relations team worked tirelessly with members of the House and Senate to pass historic legislation during the Fiscal Year 2022 Appropriations process allocating $11 million in funding toward humane wild horse and burro management.

This $11 million was reallocated away from the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) roundup funds toward implementing “a robust and humane fertility control strategy of reversible immunocontraceptive vaccines” for America’s wild horses. This breakthrough language marks the first time that Congress is requiring the BLM to implement alternatives to the cruel roundup and removal of wild horses and burros from their homes on our public lands. It’s a huge step toward responsible wild horse and burro management that will help keep these iconic animals in the wild, where they belong! 

Helped Rescue Over 100 Wild Horses & Burros from Slaughter

Thanks to the help of generous supporters like you, we were able to help fund the rescues of over 100 slaughter-bound wild horses and burros this year. In collaboration with our rescue partners, we were able to identify and rescue wild horses and burros from kill pens across the country — in imminent danger of being shipped to Mexico or Canada for brutal slaughter. The vast majority of these horses and burros were sent into the slaughter pipeline through the BLM’s Adoption Incentive Program by adopters who pocketed the cash incentives then dumped “their” animals at kill pens. 

Proved Humane Management Works 

AWHC operates the world’s largest humane fertility control program for wild horses on Nevada’s Virginia Range — and this Spring we will celebrate the three-year anniversary of this groundbreaking program!

On the range, we use Porcine Zona Pellucida (PZP) immunocontraception — a scientifically-proven fertility control vaccine given to female horses through an injection via remote darting with an air rifle. The vaccine creates an immune response that prevents fertilization without impacting the horses’ hormonal systems, thus preserving their natural behaviors.

This year our program reduced the foaling rate on the Virginia Range by 44%! This achievement has been critical in demonstrating to lawmakers and the BLM that fertility control is an effective tool for reducing population growth and a viable alternative to costly and cruel helicopter roundups for the management of America’s wild herds.  

Protected Nevada’s Wild Horses

Earlier this year, a resolution was introduced in the Nevada State Senate that called on Congress to fund brutal helicopter roundups of at least 40,000 of Nevada’s wild horses and burros — that’s nearly every wild horse and burro living in Nevada today! 

We quickly mobilized political and environmental opposition to the resolution, SJR 3, and were successful in killing it in the Natural Resources Committee. The outcome was an important show of support by this key legislative committee for humane wild horse management and a significant defeat for the coalition of livestock operators, hunters, and commercial wildlife trappers behind the mass roundup resolution. 

Amplified Our Voice

Our movement to save America’s wild horses and burros grew by leaps and bounds this year. Public outrage over the plight of these iconic animals grew, and so did the number of lawmakers on Capitol Hill demanding reform. So many of you joined the fight to preserve the freedom of our wild horses and burros on the public lands they call home, and for that, we are so grateful. 

We have much progress to make in 2022, but we know we can always count on supporters like you to lobby your elected officials, support our critical legal work, and raise awareness across the country about the threats America’s wild horses and burros continue to face.

This fight is a marathon, not a sprint, and we know that we can count on you to stand with us all along the way. Together, we will make real progress for our cherished wild horses and burros in 2022. 

So stay ready and stay tuned! We wish you and your loved ones a happy and healthy New Year!

With Gratitude,

2021 in Review: Uncovering the Adoption Incentive Program’s slaughter pipeline

1

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

2021 was a year full of highs and lows — and we’re so grateful that through it all, you stood by our side in the fight to protect wild horses and burros.

One of our biggest accomplishments was our investigation into the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Adoption Incentive Program (AIP), which resulted in a front-page New York Times exposé, elevating the tragedies of the AIP to a national level.  

As one of AWHC’s lead investigators into the AIP, every single day, I identify and track new BLM mustangs and burros in kill pens across the country. After months of investigation, we confirmed that the titles of the horses and burros we were rescuing matched those of animals adopted through the AIP.

Time and time again in this investigation, we’ve identified adopters who have collected the AIP cash incentives, then dumped the horses and burros they had adopted at slaughter auctions as soon as the money cleared their accounts.

Our Rescue Fund was key to this investigation as it allowed us to support our rescue partners in pulling wild horses and burros from kill pens. This not only saved these innocent animals’ lives but also gave us access to information — including titles and brand numbers — that helped us connect the dots to expose the program.

Supporters like you helped to fuel this lifesaving work. Will you make a donation to AWHC once again to fuel our Rescue Fund and help us continue our fight to terminate the AIP? From now until December 31 all donations will be matched up to $100,000. Donate now to DOUBLE your impact for wild horses and burros in 2022. >>

HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED →

Since uncovering and exposing this slaughter pipeline, we’ve made some impressive strides! Congress has taken notice of this problem, and our Government Relations team is working with elected officials on solutions to better protect our wild horses and burros from slaughter.

After the New York Times exposé, the BLM announced a list of reforms to the Adoption Incentive Program. But, these reforms did not go far enough, so we filed a lawsuit. This week, government attorneys informed our lawyers that the BLM would be unveiling a new Adoption Incentive Program in the new year, and we will be watching closely to see if meaningful reforms are forthcoming.

Meredith: Supporters like you make these important initiatives possible — our investigative work to uncover this slaughter pipeline, our rescue fund to help save the AIP’s victims, our Government Relations work on the Hill, and even our litigation against the BLM. None of this would be possible without your help.

As we head into the new year, will you help us continue this critical work on behalf of America’s wild horses and burros by making a donation today? Help us reach our $125,000 Year-End goal with a donation to fuel our fight in 2022!

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!

CHILLY PEPPER – Quick update on horses shipping to slaughter

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Quick Update on the Catcher’s horses.

Just got home from meeting with the Catcher. This is killing me. There is simply no way to save everyone. I am already physically ill from having to say yes or no.

The only good news is that I have 5 days to raise the funds to save as many as we can.

The goal is to raise at least $1500 for each horse. I have to be able to provide proper care and feed for them until they are adopted.

For a mare and foal pair, $500 – bail and vetting for the pair

$350 – hay for the month

$200 – Foal Lac Pellets (Mare is emaciated)

$125 – Mama and baby grain

So after bail, vetting and basic feed for the 1st month, it costs $1175, and that does not include any medicine, special care, transport etc. The likelihood of having them for over several months is high, especially because this particular pair are in horrible shape and the baby has a very badly injured face.

So $1500 won’t even cover the cost for two months for this particular pair if baby needs stitches.

I am hoping to pull at least 10 if not more.

Thankfully I am supposed to have until the 25th to raise enough funds. Originally the deadline was today, but if we can pull at least 10, we have until the 25th.

Please help me keep saying YES, to saving these lives.

TELL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS: Become a Co-sponsor of the SAFE Act >>

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We have some breaking news to share and actions for you to take this week to protect our magnificent wild horses and burros. Remember: You are the driving force for change. Together we can keep wild horses wild! Read on and see how you can help to protect these cherished animals. >>

Safe Act Introduced in the Senate

Yesterday, a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators reintroduced the Save America’s Forgotten Equines (SAFE) Act to ban the slaughter of American horses both domestic and wild. The bill’s sponsors include Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Susan Collins (R-Maine), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).

Each year, thousands of American horses, both domestic and wild, are shipped across the border to slaughter plants in Canada and Mexico. The SAFE Act would permanently prevent horse slaughter plants from opening in the U.S. and prohibit the export of American horses for slaughter for human consumption abroad.

It’s critical that we pass this bill, especially given the number of federally-protected wild horses and burros being sent into the slaughter pipeline through the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) Adoption Incentive Program. Please take action now requesting that your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative cosponsor the SAFE Act to end horse slaughter once and for all!

TAKE ACTION

 

Say Whoa to Giant Wild Horse Feedlot in Nevada

The BLM is charging ahead with its accelerated roundup plan, which if not reined in — will triple the number of wild horses and burros in holding facilities over the next five years! To accommodate this influx, the agency is expanding its holding capacity.

The latest proposal is for a 100-acre feedlot to warehouse 4,000 wild horses and burros in Nevada in cramped pens that will provide just 750 square feet of space per animal. The cost? Upwards of 7.3 million tax dollars annually. That’s 23 times more for one holding facility than the BLM spends program-wide on fertility control each year to humanely manage wild horse populations on the range. Insanity! Submit your comments before Sept. 17 to stand with AWHC against this costly and cruel plan. >>

SUBMIT YOUR COMMENTS

 

Some Good News for Your Wednesday:

Sierra Club weighs in for wild horses: The 3.8 million-member Sierra Club, citing severe bias against wild horses in resource allocation on public lands, sent a letter last week to Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, calling for an “initiation of the processes necessary to end all cattle/sheep grazing on all horse occupied BLM Herd Management Area lands.”

The letter noted that “management should prioritize keeping horses on designated HMA lands within ecological parameters that maintain or promote continued progress towards a TNEB [Thriving Natural Ecological Balance].”

This is in keeping with the Sierra Club’s new national wild horse policy as well as a growing chorus of environmental organizations speaking out against the scapegoating of wild horses for environmental damage caused by livestock. Also this month, the Sierra Club Colorado Chapter and the Western Watersheds Project called for a halt to the Sand Wash Basin wild horse roundup in Colorado, calling for removal of sheep from the HMA instead. More info here. >>

More AIP horses rescued from slaughter auctions: AWHC’s investigation into the BLM’s Adoption Incentive Program continues to identify wild horses and burros sent through this cash incentive program to kill pens across the country. Along with documenting these animals and sending the evidence to the BLM and the Interior Department, we are helping to rescue victims of the AIP.

Last week, AWHC’s Rescue Fund paid the bail to save three beautiful AIP mustangs, including a two year old, and one adorable burro from a notorious kill pen in Oklahoma. Now they are safely housed at an Evanescent Mustang Rescue and Sanctuary foster, where they will decompress, gain some weight, and be available for adoption! Four more lives were saved and that is reason for celebration!

Thanks for all you continue to do to protect wild horses and burros.

My time on Nevada’s Virginia Range

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

I’m Tracy — a Project Coordinator and Virginia Range volunteer for the American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC).

I joined AWHC to help manage fertility control data and other projects on the Virginia Range. This range might sound familiar … that’s because it’s where AWHC operates the world’s largest humane management program for wild horses!

AWHC’s PZP fertility control program has proven that there is a humane way to manage wild horse populations that doesn’t require mass roundups, crowded holding corrals, dangerous sterilization, or slaughter. And being able to contribute to this historic initiative … well that has been the experience of a lifetime!

I’ve truly cherished my time working on the range — so much so that my volunteer responsibilities continue to evolve and expand! Not only do I manage the PZP database, I am on the range working as a spotter and documenter alongside PZP darters too! I also serve as a member of the Technical Large Animal Rescue team, so I’m always on call to help the Virginia Range wild horses!

I’ve grown to love each of these beautiful animals. So much so, that I’ve dedicated my time to helping nurse rescued, orphaned foals back to health so that they can be adopted out to loving families. My husband and I even adopted two mustangs from the Virginia Range! 

The work AWHC is doing to protect the lives of America’s wild horses and burros is oh so important. These majestic animals are under almost-constant attacks and so it is up to us to stand up for the rights of wild horses and burros.

I have the opportunity to see firsthand how AWHC is protecting the rights and lives of America’s wild horses and burros. So, I wanted to ask — will you make a donation of whatever you can afford today to help fuel the important work AWHC is doing?

BREAKING: BLM announces changes to the failed Adoption Incentive Program

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We have some important news we want to share with you…

On the very same day that we confirmed 10 more Bureau of Land Management (BLM)-branded burros were adopted through the Adoption Incentive Program (AIP) then dumped at an Oklahoma kill pen, the BLM released a list of so-called “reforms” to the AIP.

Although we are pleased that the BLM is finally paying attention to this disastrous program, the announced changes will not stop the flow of wild horses and burros through the AIP into the slaughter pipeline. 

BLM-branded wild burros AWHC recently helped to rescue from an Oklahoma kill pen.
BLM-branded burros AWHC recently helped to rescue from an Oklahoma kill pen.

And while dozens of mustangs and burros continue to be funneled into kill pens across the country, the BLM continues to minimize the extent of the problem — despite the incriminating evidence found in the report AWHC presented to the agency.

So, while the BLM’s announced changes are a start, they are certainly not enough. These reforms will not be sufficient or effective in keeping wild horses and burros out of the slaughter pipeline. That’s why our lawsuit against the BLM to end this cash incentive adoption program is so important. We won’t stop until the program is terminated. Can you chip in to our Legal Fund now to help us have the resources to put an end to this failed program?

DONATE TO OUR LEGAL FUND

The BLM’s announced changes continue to focus on only protecting wild horses and burros before title passes — which means once under new ownership, wild horses and burros can be sold to kill pens if their owner chooses to do so.

This is not the only critical flaw in the BLM’s proposed changes. The announced reforms do nothing to address the problem inherent in the cash incentive component of the program, nor do they provide adequate safeguards against widespread abuse within the AIP.

Unless the BLM stops paying people to adopt wild, untamed horses and burros, the flow of these innocent animals to slaughter auctions will not stop. We’re fighting hard to terminate the AIP and ensure that no more wild horses or burros are placed in jeopardy of slaughter as a result of this operation. Please consider making a donation right now to our Legal Fund to help us take on the BLM and put an end to the Adoption Incentive Program.

ACTION ALERT: Tell your Senators to protect wild horses and burros!!

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Over the last several months our Government Relations team has been working in collaboration with members of Congress to ensure that the interests of wild horses and burros are represented during the FY 2022 Appropriations process.

We are excited to report that the House Appropriations Committee just passed the Fiscal Year 2022 Interior Appropriations spending bill and it includes important language championed by AWHC and U.S. Representatives Steve Cohen (D-TN), Dina Titus (D-NV), Mark Pocan (D-WI), and over 40 other Representatives!

If included in the final spending bill passed by the House and Senate, this legislation will continue the ban on slaughtering wild horses and burros, require the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to allocate at least $11 million to implement fertility control programs to manage wild horse and burro populations, evaluate relocating these federally protected animals as an alternative to removals, and review the “Adoption Incentive Program,” (AIP) which was exposed by the AWHC as a pipeline to slaughter for hundreds of wild horses and burros.

This is a win for wild horses — but our work isn’t done. We’re currently working with several Senators to urge the Senate Appropriations Committee to adopt similar language. 

We need your help to get this language passed in the Senate. Can you contact your two Senators right now and ask them to support this important language to protect the lives of wild horses and burros?

CONTACT YOUR SENATORS >>

Our next steps are very important, Meredith. We’re extremely concerned that an increase in funding to the BLM will continue the Trump Administration’s wild horse management plan, which calls for the removal of over 90,000 wild horses and burros from public lands over the next five years. 

We have an opportunity to protect the lives of thousands of wild horses and burros, but it can’t be done without you. Can you contact your Senators right now and ask them to adopt at least $11 million for fertility control and the horse-friendly language passed by the House to protect the lives of wild horses and burros?

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

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THE CALLS KEEP COMING! and SO ARE THE BABIES!

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

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

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

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

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

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

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BREAKING: We worked with the New York Times to investigate the BLM’s Adoption Incentive Program

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We have breaking news.

Over the last several months, the American Wild Horse Campaign — with assistance from Evanescent Mustang Rescue, Skydog Ranch and Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary — has been conducting an investigation into the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Adoption Incentive Program (AIP), leading to today’s New York Times report exposing this federal program as a subsidized pipeline to slaughter for federally-protected wild horses and burros.

The BLM’s AIP pays individuals $1,000 to adopt a wild, unhandled horse or burro. As AWHC predicted when the program was implemented in 2019, the initiative has been a disaster for these animals. It is now clear that the BLM is laundering horses to slaughter through the AIP and evading the long-standing Congressional slaughter ban. 

This program is a predictable result of the BLM’s inhumane and costly mass roundup program and the agency’s efforts to empty holding pens to make room for the tens of thousands of horses and burros targeted for removal over the next five years.

Our investigation, as affirmed by the New York Times, has documented:

  • Wild horses and burros are being sent to slaughter through the AIP.
  • Adopters are collecting the payments then sending horses to livestock auctions known as “kill pens” where they are purchased by kill buyers and shipped across the border for slaughter.
  • Adopters are routinely violating their BLM adoption contracts, which they sign under penalty of perjury, prohibiting the sale of these animals directly or indirectly to slaughter.
  • Groups of related individuals are evading the four-horse adoption limit by adopting multiple horses each using the same location on their applications, then collecting as much as $30,000 in AIP payments and sales of the horses at kill pens.
  • The AIP additionally has resulted in severe neglect and abuse of horses and burros by adopters unqualified or uninterested in providing adequate care.

 

  • The AIP should not be allowed to continue. The BLM must stop rounding up wild horses and burros and start managing them humanely in the wild. Thousands of America’s iconic wild horses and burros are at risk and need your voice.

    Please take these three actions to make change for them right now:

    1. Sign our petition demanding an end to the AIP and to mass roundups that send too many wild horses and burros into the slaughter pipeline.
    2. Share the New York Times article on social media.
    3. Call & write Congress to demand the AIP program be terminated. You can leave a message over the weekend.

    Thank you for speaking up for our wild horses and burros at this critical time!

your support helps us save wild burros just like these ones

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We wanted to tell you about one of our recent wins for wild burros that was only possible because of the support of donors like you.

Make a donation to our Rescue Fund today to help us save more wild horses & burros!

On the eve of Burro Awareness Month, our rescue partner Evanescent Mustang Rescue and Sanctuary alerted us about 12 burros that were dumped in an Oklahoma kill pen. The burros were rounded up by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and were ready to ship to slaughter any day. 

These burros are likely victims of the BLM’s Adoption Incentive Program, which pays a $1,000 incentive for individuals to adopt wild and unhandled horses and burros. The program is resulting in many of these beautiful wild animals being “flipped” to kill pens.

We knew we had to help Evanescent rescue these innocent animals and get them to safety ASAP. 

AWHC’s Rescue Fund paid the bail for all 12 burros, and Evanescent rescued them and is providing a safe landing place where they can rest and heal until they are ready for adoption!

This victory wouldn’t be possible without the support of donors like you. The resources you help to provide the AWHC & our Rescue Fund are integral in helping our rescue partners save wild horses and burros.

Will you help us again today and make a donation so that we can continue to fuel our Rescue Fund and save more wild horses and burros in need?

ACT NOW: Protect horses in transport

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We have an opportunity to ban the transportation of horses across state lines in “double-decker” trailers. 

Transporting horses in double-decker trailers is both dangerous and cruel, and can result in significant injuries and even death for horses. These trailers are designed for much shorter species, and fail to provide enough headroom for horses — forcing them to stand in painfully cramped conditions during long-distance transport.

There is some good news: Many states have already banned the use of these inhumane trailers and the U.S. Department of Agriculture has prohibited the use of these trailers as a means of transporting horses to slaughter.

But  there is no permanent federal law to prevent horses from being transported in these dangerous trailers for any other reason. 

U.S. Representatives Steve Cohen (D-TN), Dina Titus (D-NV), and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) have introduced the Horse Transportation Safety Act in Congress to ban the transportation of horses across state lines in “double-decker” trucks or trailers.

Meredith, please take the following steps right now to help us ensure the safe transportation of horses:

  1. Call your U.S. Representative and urge them cosponsor the Horse Transportation Safety Act, H.R. 921. When you call your representative, use the following script:

“Hello, I am a constituent, and I’m calling to ask you to please cosponsor the Horse Transportation Safety Act, H.R. 921, to protect horses from being transported in dangerous double-decker trucks and trailers. Thank you.” 

  1. Use this link to follow up your call with a personalized email urging your representative to cosponsor H.R. 921!

Will you join us in supporting this critical bill to protect the safety of all horses? Using these double-decker trucks and trailers is a cruel and inhumane practice that often results in needless deaths of horses in transport.

In order to get this bill passed, we need all hands on deck. Will you join us in supporting H.R. 921 and contact your representatives today?

Thank you for your support,
Holly Gann Bice

NEWBORNS ON THE FEEDLOT – ANOTHER 911 – SHIPPER CALLED – IT IS BEYOND GO TIME AND THE BABIES NEED YOUR HELP!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Wow – the insanity has already begunY’all JUST SAVED TEN MORE LIVES since I arrived in WA to pick up the Stallion and the 2 Pregnant mares!

I was getting ready to head back home to NV on Monday when I received another urgent phone call for an orphaned, abandoned foal. Then a call for an abandoned, injured, newborn orphaned lamb. It never stops!

This morning I had Doc come out and pull Coggins on “Nicholas”, (Our most recent Emergency), I was prepping to finally head home and my phone rang again. There are “tinies” at the Shipper’s and I should be getting them tomorrowSo apparently I am not going home anytime soon.

Sadly, NEARLY ALL the funds have been depleted on this last rescue. Every day that I am here, I have to have folks at home taking care of the rescue. Although most of their time is volunteer, it still adds up substantially. (They are amazing!) We also need to get another load of hay for the “special needs” kids at the rescue. Fuel costs are rising and that is a substantial cost for us even before the ridiculous prices we are already starting to see.

I have to get more shelter set up for these critical babies. As the numbers increase, so does the need for safe nursery space to give them what they need.

We spent roughly $2000+ simply to “save” these lives, and spent over $1,000 on vetting for health certs, (and that does not include the latest couple visits). That was just to get the horses to camp and keep them off the slaughter truck. (Just in the last 2 weeks). This DOES NOT include medical care, feed, hauling, etc. It is just a drop in the bucket of the rescue expenses.

I realize folks are struggling. However, I will keep fighting for these lives as long as I have the funding to do so. Sadly I have been warned that they are planning on “hitting it hard” this year because there are so many horses. So I am asking everyone who wants me to keep saving these precious lives to make it happen.

Great news however, these last horses that you saved are nearly all adopted, and yes, we saved the “3 Old Ladies”. They are currently in NV and being assessed. They are approximately 25 years old and sweet as can be.

Sadly we had to let Angel Face leave this world that was nothing but cruel to her. She was in excruciating pain and it was much worse the photos showed. She is running free in Heaven with the Angels and is finally free from the horrific pain. I am still working on the mare with the long feet. However, her owner did get them trimmed (how well I don’t know), and supposedly the vet is going to assess her. I am still on standby. I know it costs a lot to set these souls free, but it is the right thing to do! It is beyond devastating and it feels like you are being torn apart, yet I will always do it if no one else will.

When you see Angel Face below, please know that your love and support ended her horrible suffering. YOU made such a difference for this beautiful soul by alleviating her endless pain. THANK YOU!

IT’S GO TIME AGAIN. ANOTHER 911 – 2 MORE MARES, 1 HEAVILY PREGNANT, HEADING TO SLAUGHTER IF WE CAN’T SAVE THEM

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THIS BEAUTIFUL MARE NEEDS YOUR HELP!

She and her unborn child will be shipping to slaughter if we don’t save them. As you know, donations have been deeply affected by the current economy.

If we don’t get the funding in time, I will NOT be able to save them. The other mare shown below is also shipping.

I honestly have no idea what the future holds for rescues everywhere. I am praying I can keep saving lives with your help.

Thank you for those who came through so we could actually cover the initial rescue costs for the last 6.

If you would like to save this Mama and her baby and keep them safe, please skip a coffee or meal out and send whatever you can. All I can do is ask for help and pray we get what we need in time.

Look at this beautiful girl below. She does NOT deserve to die. Those eyes….

6 WILD HORSES – SAFE AT CHILLY PEPPER BUT NOT YET FUNDED – CHILLY PEPPER NEEDS YOUR HELP – PLEASE!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

CHILLY PEPPER NEEDS YOUR HELP ASAP!

For the first time since I started this rescue, we failed to raise enough funds to save the 6 wild horses who were shipping to slaughter.

LUCKILY for the horses, I went on faith and saved them even though we haven’t yet raised the funds. This means that monies slated for feed and vet bills has not been put back, and the horses really need your help.

This is a first,and sadly a result of the current times. We simply did not raise enough funds to cover the cost of saving them, transporting them, drawing blood work and getting brand inspections, health certificates etc.

Yesterday we had to geld 4 stallions, so the wild ones can find safe and loving homes.

I am praying hard, as the world simply seems to be upside down. I have no idea where the rescue is headed due to the general economy. For now, I am hoping we can raise enough funds to pay for the gelding, vetting and transport.

THE 3 SKINNY, PREGNANT MARES HAVE A WONDERFUL HOME OFFER at a private sanctuary in California. I almost cried when she said she would offer them a forever home. HOWEVER, we need funds to transport them safely, get health certificates, brand inspections etc.

The simple truth is that Chilly Pepper STILL needs help for these horses, even though they are SAFE and we kept them off of that horrible truck!

I also had a “behind the scenes” rescue of this beautiful little girl shown below. She is crippled and definitely did not need to be an appetizer somewhere. Meet “Phoebee”.

URGENT ACTION NEEDED NOW to save these precious lives.

I got another call today. In the middle of sending out donation receipts, caring for our special needs kids here and trying to prep for baby season, it’s GO TIME! *It doesn’t matter that it is not convenient.*

This is an emergency, and these horses will be loaded onto the slaughter truck on Wednesday if I do not say YES!

PLEASE help me save these precious souls. The clock is ticking and you are their only hope.

Please donate now! We are already stretched beyond tight, as I have to get Colostrum (IGG) for the newborns, Foal Lac Powder, Foal Lac Pellets and about a hundred other items to be ready for the 2021 baby season. Lately it seems like we are doing as many big kids, but this is what God is putting in front of us.

THE FINAL 911 FOR 2020. ANOTHER OLD LADY AND THE SADDEST STORY EVER – WILL YOU SAVE THE LAST 2 OF 2020??

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER 911 – LAST CALL FOR 2020!!

THE DEADLINE HAS PASSED FOR THESE 2! LET’S GIVE THEM THE CHANCE TO LIVE IN 2021. THEY ARE DESPERATE, and the gelding’s story will make you cry. It literally made us ill. :(

I had to go on faith.

Meet “TREASURE”. The saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s Treasure” is beyond true. TREASURE was “THAT HORSE”. He was the bomb proof, been there – done that horse. The one you could put any kid on. The one you put the visitors on, knowing that no matter how they rode or what they did to him, the horse would take care of them through thick and thin. He was the RANCH HORSE that worked for years.

TREASURE was literally the perfect horse,

UNTIL – He could no longer work. After 20 some years of perfect service, he no longer “had a purpose”, so he was thrown away like trashWhen the shipper wouldn’t even take him due to his poor condition, he decided that if he didn’t get what he wanted he would just leave him out to die. He was not going to waste money and feed him through the winter. He was not even going to waste a bullet…..

TREASURE is starved, weak and so full of worms I don’t even know if he will make it. He is exhausted and the first thing I am going to do is get his bloodwork done. Please say a prayer for him. He is so tired and so sad. He still doesn’t understand he is truly loved.

MEET “SMURF”. She is the old lady that was shipping to slaughter. She was lucky we could save her, because I received the info that she was a “done deal” and had no chance. Another “miracle for a mustang”.

She is 18ish?, a total sweetheart and did not need to end up on a dinner plate somewhere.

Saving these 2 lives is our “Last Hurrah” for 2020. Let’s end it with victory and save these precious lives! Treasure is going to need vetted asap, and will need all of us to pull together for him.

Christmas is at her new home and all settled in. Noel is with me, and sadly lost about 150 # before we could get her. She will also need lots of TLC!

I did manage to get our beautiful Annie Oakley home, in spite of the weather and incorrect forecast. I am so thankful to the folks that cared for her until I could get her. She is in better condition than when she came in, but still in horrible shape. She is extremely thin, very wormy and they literally picked 100’s and 100’s of ticks off of her. The ticks nearly killed her, and the worms are trying to finish the job. She HAS been dewormed, but is still in extremely poor health.

So we are *wrapping up 2020 with the usual 911 calls and desperate situations! PLEASE help us save these kids.*

_A quick personal note – I found out I have had Fybromyalgia for some time now. Sadly it explains why I have had such an increase in the chronic pain. Hopefully it won’t have much affect on my rescue, but prayers are greatly appreciated!

I guess being partially crippled and having an existing disease that causes chronic pain just wasn’t enough. (haha) But I know God has a plan and He will keep me going! I will keep fighting as long as I can, and I hope y’all will keep fighting with me!_
