The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: If there is anything our public awareness campaigns have taught us, it’s this: When Americans are made aware of the cruelty wild horses and burros face, they are upset, angry, and ready to take action. It’s imperative that we continue to build our grassroots movement, and we need your support. Will you chip in to fuel our work today? DONATE NOW These efforts are exactly why, despite the National Park Service’s proposal to eliminate the historic Teddy Roosevelt wild horses from the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, momentum has been growing in the grassroots movement to keep the herd where they are — in large part thanks to supporters like you. Even the media is taking notice: DONATE NOW Since we launched our North Dakota campaign:
- We launched billboards in key areas to raise awareness about the Teddy Roosevelt horses;
- More than 19,000 comments have been submitted to the park service — over 13,000 from AWHC supporters, with a resounding majority supporting keeping horses in the Park;
- Governor Doug Burgum has signed into law a unanimous resolution urging the park service to keep the historic wild herd in the Park;
- AND, hundreds of AWHC supporters like you have taken action to ask North Dakota legislators like Rep. Kelly Armstrong to support keeping the horses in the Park, where they have thrived for generations.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: We've got a lot to share with you in this week's edition of eNews, including an opportunity for you to speak up on behalf of Idaho's three wild herds, a video showing the heartwarming reuinion of a beloved mustang pair after they were separated during a helicopter roundup, and some useful tips on how you can advocate for wild horses and burros at the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) upcoming Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board meeting. Read on to learn more! BLM to Drastically Reduce Three Idaho Herds - ACT NOW! The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Owyhee Field Office is proposing a 10-year plan for the wild horse populations within the Black Mountain, Hardtrigger and Sands Basin Herd Management Areas (HMAs) in Idaho and we need your help. The agency plans to reduce the wild horse populations drastically to a mere 30 for Black Mountain, 66 for Hard Trigger and just 33 for Sands Basin. According to leading equine geneticists, in order to ensure genetic viability, no population should be reduced below 150 animals. As if that isn't bad enough, the agency is considering the use of GonaCon in these HMAs. Instead, the BLM should use the humane and scientifically proven fertility control vaccine PZP. Please take action today! TAKE ACTION BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board to Meet in Reno At the end of the month, the BLM’s national Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board will meet June 28-30 in Reno.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: Your support for our Rescue Fund powers a variety of critically important work – from providing life saving medical care to foals on Nevada’s Virginia Range to even outbidding kill buyers at slaughter auctions to protect victims of the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) failed Adoption Incentive Program (AIP). We are proud to have helped support the rescue of hundreds of innocent wild horses and burros over the years, and today, we’re going to give you an update on a few of our most heartwarming rescues. But before we do, we’d like to ask that you please consider chipping in to our Rescue Fund to fuel future rescue efforts like these. FUEL OUR RESCUE FUND First up, meet Fran and Nellie. Back in January 2021, as part of our ongoing investigation into the AIP slaughter pipeline, AWHC staff were monitoring a slaughter auction in Texas when they discovered a young, red roan BLM-branded mustang, now named Fran, and her small domestic companion, Nellie. Our team knew we had to act fast, so we quickly reached out to our partners at Montgomery Creek Ranch (MCR) to check to see if they had room for them in their sanctuary and adoption program. Once they confirmed they could take the pair in, we leapt into action and sprung them both from the kill pen and transported them to MCR. Shortly after they arrived to safety, we confirmed that Fran was in fact a victim of the AIP. These two young horses arrived at the sanctuary scared and in poor condition from their long journey. But thanks to the kind and loving care from the MCR team, they have both grown up to be beautiful and healthy horses! In fact, Nellie has completed all of her pre-riding groundwork training and is actually available for adoption now! Fran and Nellie are in safe hands thanks to our herd of wild horse advocates – from the incredible sanctuaries and rescue groups who take in these forgotten animals, to people like you whose generosity powers our Rescue Fund and our other life saving initiatives. But the sad truth is, there are thousands of other innocent mustangs and burros like them who need our help – and we need to ensure we have the resources to be able to help save as many of them as possible. Will you make a donation to our Rescue Fund today to ...
