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!


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?


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?


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