The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The wild horses who call North Dakota’s Theodore Roosevelt National Park home are in serious danger. The National Park Service (NPS) is proposing a plan that could potentially eliminate the historic herd in its entirety.

Currently, the park is home to at least 186 wild horses. The Teddy Roosevelt horses have roamed the badlands for centuries, and many believe they are descendants of Sitting Bull’s horses and are related to the rare Nokota breed. They are a significant part of the historical and natural heritage of the park and are the only wild horse herd in North Dakota, but the NPS’ new plan threatens to wipe them out. 

We cannot allow this plan to move forward.Thankfully, there is still time to stop it. The NPS is accepting public comments on the plan until January 31st – meaning we have two weeks to provide our input. Will you use your voice and call on the NPS to abandon its disastrous plan?

TAKE ACTION

Currently, the agency’s preferred plan is to reduce the wild horse population to zero in a phased approach. This is unacceptable. These horses deserve to be protected. 

The NPS must implement ​​a humane management plan to keep these innocent animals wild and free on the lands they have called home for centuries. If you agree, sign on to this letter and make your voice heard!

Many burros stand crowded in an enclosure

Last month, we received word from California-based, Auction Horses Rescue (AHR) that a load of 22 donkeys – mostly BLM burros, many pregnant – were being directly shipped to slaughter. In a collaborative effort between AWHC, AHR, Skydog Sanctuary and Oscar’s Place, these burros are now safe.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Time is running out.

I’ll keep this quick: In just a few short hours, our biggest fundraising opportunity of the year — unlocking a $150,000 matching gift — expires. We’re still $24,312 from reaching our goal, and I’m worried that for the first time ever, we may not get there.

Together, we can ensure that our work in 2023 gets off to the strongest start possible; with funding for our ambitious legal, legislative, and field program goals.

Can you chip in whatever you can afford — one last time in 2022 before it’s too late?

I can’t wait to see what we achieve together for our wild horses and burros in the year ahead. If it’s anything like the momentum we’ve experienced this year, we have a lot to be hopeful about. Thank you for all that you’ve done to power our movement in 2022.

Together, we’ve accomplished so much, so I want to share with you a video our team put together highlighting some of our 2022 victories. We’re so proud of what we’ve been able to do and are so grateful for your belief in our work, Meredith.

Will you take a moment to watch and then make a 2X matched donation to help us finish the year off strong?

The BLM is coming for us …

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Herd needs your help.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is coming for me, my family, and my herd in 2023, intending to capture and remove every single one of us from our home in the 1.1 million-acre Salt Wells Creek Herd Management Area (HMA) and the neighboring 780,000-acre Great Divide Basin HMA in Wyoming.

I’ll be honest, I’m scared. Helicopter roundups aren’t just cruel,they can be deadly. I’ve personally seen the horrors of these roundups firsthand. Last year, my family was torn apart when the BLM conducted the largest roundup in history in the Wyoming Checkerboard. I was lucky to survive with just an injury to my knee, but others weren’t as fortunate. I saw my friends get trapped, break their legs, and lose their lives after the BLM captured them with helicopters.

AWHC is working hard to stop the BLM from conducting brutal helicopter roundups. They are proving there is a better way to keep wild horses like me and my family wild by using humane fertility control as a safe and effective alternative to roundups.

The AWHC legal team is ready to defend me and my family from this attack, but they need your support now. A big deadline is approaching at the end of the year, and thanks to the generosity of donors, all contributions made before midnight on Saturday will be MATCHED.

Can you chip in before the deadline to help AWHC reach its $150,000 goal so they can defend my herd and me from eradication by the BLM next year?

HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED →

I can’t bear the thought of going through another helicopter roundup. I was fortunate to survive being captured and then was released last time. I’ve even managed to start anew. But I know the BLM is coming for us again next year, and I may not be so lucky this time.

That’s why we need organizations like AWHC that fight to protect wild horses like me — and they need your support to continue this critical work in 2023.

Please consider making a donation before midnight on December 31st to help AWHC reach its End-of-Year goal and support efforts to protect me and my herd from more brutal helicopter roundups in 2023!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We’ve got a lot to share with you in this week’s eNews, including: a new report that proves livestock — not wild horses — are to blame for range degradation, an inside look at a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) adoption event, and the heartwarming story of Trident, a powerful stallion on Nevada’s Virginia Range.

Read on to learn more! >>

PEER Report Finds Livestock Outnumber Wild Horses/Burros 125:1

a family of horses walks through the field in the sunset and says "STAY WILD DENVER: OPEN FOR BIDDING DECEMBER 1"

Wild horses and burros are scapegoated by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for range degradation, but a new report finds that unsurprisingly, livestock are the real problem. Agency rangeland health data, collected and analyzed by environmental watchdog organization Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER), reveals that more than 50% of the grazing allotments that fail to meet land health standards identify livestock as a significant cause – not wild horses.

Eyewitness Report: Paul’s Valley Off-Range Corrals Adoption Event

AWHC supporters stand with signs to protest the Onaqui roundups

On December 13, 2022, AWHC sent a field representative to the BLM Paul’s Valley Off-Range Corrals, about an hour south of Oklahoma City, to document a wild horse and burro adoption event. While the horses at this facility have seemingly more space than other facilities, seeing formerly wild animals standing in mud-ridden pens is always hard. Read the full report below!

4 mustangs stand in a field in Nevada

When AWHC volunteer Deb Sutherland first saw Trident, it was a hot summer day in 2015 on Nevada’s Virginia Range. He was only a few hours old and was standing close to his mother, known affectionately as Pinkie, resting. Fast-forward to today, Trident is a powerful band stallion that Deb continues to document as he battles to create his family.

A Christmas Miracle for 4, and another Angel leaves us

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

collage tonka silver sweetie princess

tonka feet

Noah

Hi all,

Thank you for saving the Christmas kids. As always, there was a big wrench thrown into this rescue. As I was on my way, I received a message that I also had to save the STALLION. IF I didn’t take him too, I couldn’t save the mares.

Thankfully, we are set up for wild stallions so of course I said yes. Sadly his feet are horrific and he is very thin under his coat. He is exactly NOT what was described. He is much older than I was told, very thin and most likely needs dental work asap.

Mercedes update – Mercedes gave birth to a beautiful, perfectly formed, stillborn baby on the 15th. He was beyond perfect, Mercedes had no issues as he was not big like we were worried about. However in a devastating turn of events his umbilical cord was cinched around his flank during birth, which immediately cut off his blood supply, sending him straight into the Angel’s arms.

Doc was here minutes after I called her, but he passed in the birth canal and was beyond resuscitation. (Note to folks. You cannot put pressure on that area of a newborn baby as it can kill them. One of the first things we learned years ago was to NEVER ever pick up a newborn baby under his legs.)

I had just picked up Mercedes at the vet the night before and both Mommy and Baby were doing great. Baby was moving and Mercedes was fine. I have no words and don’t even know how to breathe even today.

THANK YOU for saving the girls and our unexpected boy. Princess left yesterday for her new home, and we are praying the weather clears so I can finally get these kids home to Nevada.

If you would like to help with Tonka’s vetting (gelding, teeth floating, Coggins) or his vast feeding needs, it is much appreciated. God gives and He takes away. I have yet to understand why I have so many old timers that have had a life and why so many new littles are gone too soon, However, all I can do is pray and have faith, knowing someday I will have the answers.

THANK YOU for the baby gifts for our precious Noah. It breaks my heart knowing how much love is behind every blanket, halter etc. that was sent for him. I wish I could hug each and every one of you. It has been beyond devastating, especially as Mercedes’ journey to health was so long and difficult.

Have a Merry Christmas and thank you for saving so many lives this year!

ICYMI: Our 5th Annual Stay Wild event was a HUGE success!!

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

December 9 was a night to remember for AWHC thanks to the success of our 5th Annual Stay Wild event in Denver! Colorado Governor Jared Polis and First Gentleman Marlon Reis headlined the VIP guest list, which also included other state political leaders and leaders in the wild horse advocacy and business communities.

The event was held at Scott Wilson’s Gallery 6 in Denver’s art district. Scott is an award-winning wildlife and landscape photographer and our very own Director of Strategy and Marketing.

Governor Jared Polis gives formal remarks to guests at the event.

The event provided a platform to announce an exciting political development: A bill to be introduced by State Senator Joann Ginal and State Representative Monica Duran to designate the wild mustang as the official state horse of Colorado!

The night was filled with great conversation about how we can work to protect these magnificent animals, Scott’s powerful photography featuring some of Colorado’s very own wild mustangs, an amazing film preview, and moving speeches.

“I care for these wild, untamed beauties … and believe that to see wild horses as a problem to be solved is wrong. We need to work toward creative solutions to give wild horses the dignity and respect they deserve.”

— Colorado First Gentleman Marlon Reis

The governor – a longtime advocate for wild horse protection – highlighted his belief that Colorado is well positioned to be a leader in wild horse management and a model for the West.

If you weren’t able to watch the event live, don’t worry — you can still watch remarks from Governor Jared Polis and First Gentleman Marlon Reis at the button below!

Celebrating National Day of the Horse and our fight to keep them free >>

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Happy National Day of the Horse!

This very special day was designated by Congress in 2004 as a day to commemorate the contribution horses have made to the economy, history, and character of the United States. And here at the American Wild Horse Campaign, we’re celebrating the only way we know how: continuing our fight in the field, in courts, and on the Hill to keep America’s iconic wild horses and burros free. 

Generous supporters like you are the reason we can fight so hard for these cherished animals. That’s why as part of today’s celebration, we’ve set an ambitious goal to raise $150,000 before December 31st to fuel our fight to protect wild horses and burros in 2023.

From our fertility control program to taking legal action against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), our work to keep wild horses and burros wild is fueled by the dedicated wild horse advocates that make up our AWHC herd. Here are some of the ways your support has powered our fight to keep these animals free:

  • In-The-Wild Fertility Control Programs — For almost 4 years, AWHC staff and volunteers have operated the world’s largest wild horse fertility control program on Nevada’s Virginia Range — proving that the most efficient, cost-effective, and humane way to manage wild horses is with fertility control vaccines, not often-deadly helicopter roundups. The success of this program has helped us secure wins with Congress and the BLM in our fight to keep wild horses wild. The program is a model for humane management, and next year we’ll be working to expand fertility control projects to other key herd areas across the West.

  • Annual Appropriations Language — The success of our fertility control programs helped us secure major wins in the Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) spending bill that reallocated $11 million in BLM funding away from helicopter roundups and instead towards humane management! Now, our Government Relations team is fighting to secure the same language in the final FY23 bill and working to pass other wild horse-friendly legislation like the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Protection Act of 2022 — a bill that would drastically reform the BLM’s management operations.

  • Litigation — AWHC’s legal team continues to build a firewall of legal protections around wild horses and burros. We evaluate every BLM proposal and strategically take legal action in order to enact the most change for wild horses. We’ve filed suit against the BLM’s implementation of its controversial Adoption Incentive Program and are gearing up for a legal battle like no other for the lives of Wyoming’s wild horses.

  • Public Awareness Campaign — This year we launched a nationwide awareness campaign to inform the public about the devastating reality our cherished wild horses and burros face. Our campaign has already added thousands of new supporters to our cause because one thing is certain: When people hear about the tragedies these innocent animals face, they are angry and ready to take action!

THIS is the critical work that supporters like you power. And that’s why it’s so critical that we hit our $150,000 End-of-Year goal.

Thanks to a generous donor — all donations made up to $100,000 will be MATCHED! So as we continue our work into the year ahead, your gift will go twice as far in our fight to keep family bands together, mustangs roaming free, and innocent foals alongside their mothers on the public lands they call home. Will you make a 2X MATCHED donation today to help us get a head start on our goal and DOUBLE your impact for wild horses and burros in 2023?

Thank you.

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.

Living and working with the horses of the Virginia Range

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Deb — a longtime wild horse photographer and volunteer documenter for the American Wild Horse Campaign’s (AWHC) fertility control program in Nevada. This Giving Tuesday, I’d like to tell you about the important work AWHC is doing and why you should consider making a 2X Matched donation today as part of their biggest fundraising day of the year.

HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED → DONATE NOW!

I found my love for photographing wild horses about twelve years ago when a band of beautiful mustangs wandered through my neighborhood in Nevada. My family and I live at the base of the Virginia Range, and once I noticed these majestic animals, I started following them to the canyon to photograph them. Ever since then, I’ve been in awe.

So when I first learned the plight of the wild horses and burros living on our public lands, I was appalled. They have lived peacefully in the wild for hundreds of years, but special interests who want to graze their private cattle for cheap on federal lands have gotten in the way of their freedom.

When AWHC asked me to be a documenter for their PZP fertility control program on the Virginia Range, I was thrilled! While the Virginia Range mustangs do not have federal protections, I knew working with AWHC on this groundbreaking program would provethere’s a better way to manage wild horses and now I utilize my passion for photographing wild horses to help them.

For almost 4 years, AWHC has managed the PZP program on the Virginia Range. This program is the first of its kind, and over the last few years, it’s helped reduce foaling rates by 62% — proving to the public, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and Congress that there is a better, more humane, AND more cost-effective way to manage wild horses than brutal helicopter roundups and removals.

Seeing these horses roam freely and safely truly warms my heart, but this successful program would not be possible without the support of people like you. You fuel our lifesaving and historic efforts to manage wild horses humanely, Meredith. 

It costs just $30 to dart a mare with the PZP fertility control vaccine, so Meredith, I’m here to ask: Will you make a 2x Matched donation of $30 or more before midnight tonight to power the continued success and expansion of our PZP programs so that we can keep wild horses and burros living wild and free where they belong?

$30 becomes → $60

$60 becomes → $120

$150 becomes → $300

$300 becomes → $600

$500 becomes → $1,000

Thank you,

Give Hope to Horses like Granger for #GivingTuesday

0

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.

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

0

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?

911 for Starving Senior Mare. Will You Help Save “Grandma Gladys”? Clock is ticking to save this poor mare! She needs you now!

Grandma Gladys 7

Grandma Gladys 8

Another EMERGENCY Call, ANOTHER 911!

Will you help us save “Grandma Gladys”? Look at that beautiful face and those sweet eyes. The pictures do not show how skinny she really is under all that hair.

Gladys has been suffering in single digit temperatures and going without food for days at a time. She stands shaking and trembling through the cold nights,SHIVERING violently to try and stay warm. If we don’t do something now, it is going to be too late.

She is literally starving to death before our eyes. Enough is enough, she has been suffering far too long! Will you PLEASE help us give her the love and care that she deserves?

Starving is a horrible and extremely painful way to die. She is probably close to Sparkles’ condition under all that hair. Her head looks enormous because her body is so depleted and she is so emaciated.

PLEASE HELP ME HELP HER BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE! I can’t take another heartbreak like Sparkles, and Grandma Gladys is in extremely critical condition. No horse deserves to starve/freeze to death.

Thank you for everyone for your love and support. Y’all are amazing and together we are changing the world, one life at a time. Let’s change Grandma Gladys’ life too! Let’s be her Thanksgiving miracle.

Please call 509-773-0369 if you would like to help with the vet bill.

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?

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?
