‘Tis the Season for Remembering Wild Horses and Burros!


The following article is from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, with the help of friends like you, is on the frontlines of the battle to save America’s mustangs and burros! Thanks to you, our wonderful supporters, 2014 was a tough but important year in which we made some significant strides:

  • We saved over 70 historic Virginia Range mustangs in Nevada from the slaughter auction.
  • We waged legal battles in three states to defend wild horses and burros from assaults by ranchers and their political allies.
  • We’re implementing on-the-range management solutions in Nevada to Keep Wild Horses Wild.
  • We’re growing the grassroots army of citizens willing to speak up and defend wild horses, tripling our ranks in this year alone!

We need your help to keep up the fight!

Across the West, wild horses and burros are under attack as never before. Government holding facilities are full with nearly 50,000 wild horses stockpiled. Roundups have been scaled back and ranchers and their political allies are up in arms. They’re fighting back with lawsuits and legislation aimed at removing thousands more horses from their homes on the range and selling the wild horses stockpiled in holding facilities for slaughter.

We are literally the last line of defense between our wild horses and burros and their certain doom. 

Will you stand with us in 2015 as we fight to Keep Wild Horses and Burros Wild?

Your end of year gift will help AWHPC to:

Protect wild horses and burros through humane on-the-range management programs.

Advocate for wild horses and burros by giving them a strong voice in federal court and in the halls of government.

Inspire people to appreciate and stand up for our magnificent wild horses and burros as a unique and historic American legacy.

If you have not yet sent in your year-end gift, I hope that you will do so soon. If you have, thank you for sharing your love for our wild horses and burros and for your commitment to saving them.
