The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
UPDATE — We’re nearly 25% of the way to our $125,000 End of Year goal we have to hit in order for all donations to be matched. We only have 24 hours before our EOY match goal deadline, and before you lose this amazing opportunity to more than double your donation impact.
Before we ask — for one of the very last times this year — for you to make a donation to our largest match opportunity EVER, we wanted to give you a glimpse of one way your donation will be used.
AWHC operates the world’s largest humane management program for wild horses and burros. The cornerstone of this highly successful program is the remote darting of wild mares with the scientifically proven fertility vaccine known as ‘PZP’. No need for roundups, expensive and crowded holding corrals, or risky sterilization surgeries. And do you know how much it costs for a single mare’s annual PZP vaccine?
$30 today — on the 30th of December, one day before our LAST fundraising deadline of the year — is all it takes to keep a wild horse wild and show that brutal roundups and invasive surgical sterilization are not necessary to humanely manage wild herds.
Compare that to the $48,000 the Bureau of Land Management spends on the roundup, removal and long-term holding of a single horse. PZP is worth every dollar saved to keep wild horses living free with their families.
Can you give $30 on the 30th to help us fund our PZP program and hit our $125,000 match? We cannot afford to miss this goal. Your donation fuels our fight so we can take bigger, better, and bolder steps to defend and protect wild horses in 2021 and beyond.
