Your support made this our best Giving Tuesday ever

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: From each and every one of us at the American Wild Horse Campaign, I want to thank you for your dedication and support this Giving Tuesday.  When we asked if you would step up for wild horses and burros on our biggest fundraising day of the year, you responded with the generosity and passion that defines this incredible community. Thanks to you, not only did we hit yesterday’s $75,000 goal — we far surpassed it! Your generosity helped us to exceed our highest Giving Tuesday goal ever and raise a record-breaking sum towards our fight to keep America’s horses and burros wild and free on the public lands they call home. We know that this was no easy feat, and we are unbelievably grateful for your support. We hope you celebrate this amazing success with us and know just how important you are to our growing herd. The hard work is unfortunately never done, but it’s made more powerful, heartfelt, and hopeful because of you and your commitment to our cause. Your generosity this Giving Tuesday will go far in 2022 as we:
  • Rescue more victims of the Adoption Incentive Program (AIP) like the Elkhart 8;
  • Fight in our ongoing lawsuit against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for the termination of the AIP;
  • Continue to lobby and secure victories like the $11 million in BLM funding towards reversible immunocontraceptive fertility control;
  • And so much more in our fight to preserve the freedom of America’s wild horses and burros and make roundups a thing of the past.
There will be more battles ahead in 2022, but in the meantime, from all of us here at the American Wild Horse Campaign: Thank you again for your generosity and support this Giving Tuesday. Suzanne Roy Executive Director American Wild Horse Campaign ...

I’m proud to support AWHC this Giving Tuesday — will you join me?

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Lin — a life-long wild horse lover and friend of the American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC). I wanted to reach out to you today to tell you about all of the important work AWHC is doing and why I’m proud to match every donation made to AWHC today as part of Giving Tuesday. My love for horses started when I was a child. I was drawn to these breathtaking animals because they are just the most magnificent creatures! When I learned the plight of the wild horses and burros living on our public lands, I was appalled. They have lived in the wild for hundreds of years, but special interests have lobbied for decades for the removal of these cherished icons so that private cattle can graze on federal lands. As a result, wild horses and burros face the constant threat of brutal helicopter roundups, which remove them from the lands they call home, split up family bands, and cause them immense trauma. It’s a devastating reality, but I have hope for the future of America’s wild horses and burros. Why? Because AWHC is doing the hard work necessary to help these animals maintain their freedom. Will you make a donation of whatever you can afford today to fuel AWHC’s fight for wild horses and burros? I’ll match every donation made today up to $40,000 so that your gift can go twice as far. I’m proud to work with the AWHC because they are doing more than any other organization to save our wild mustangs and keep them free on our public lands. From legal battles, to working with the federal government to create new laws that protect these cherished animals, to funding scientific research to provide humane alternatives to manage wild horse and burro populations instead of traumatic helicopter roundups — AWHC is doing it all! I’m so proud to support the amazing work AWHC is doing, and I hope you will too. That’s why today, I will match every donation made to AWHC up to $40,000 so that your gift can go twice as far for wild horses and burros this holiday season. HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED → Thanks, Lin ...

We’re raising money this #GivingTuesday to keep wild horses WILD >>

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: Giving Tuesday is finally here — and so is our biggest Giving Tuesday fundraising goal EVER!  Last week, we emailed you about an exciting match opportunity — and I’m thrilled to announce that we unlocked our Giving Tuesday 2x Match, so all gifts made today will be DOUBLED! We set a goal to raise $75,000 before midnight tonight to fuel our fight for wild horses and burros as we head into 2022. This might seem like a lot, but Giving Tuesday is our most critical fundraising day of the entire year, and 2022 is set to be our busiest year yet! Can you help kickstart our Giving Tuesday fundraising with a donation to AWHC right now? HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED → DONATE NOW Earlier this year, we uncovered the wild horse-to-slaughter pipeline that has resulted from the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) failed Adoption Incentive Program (AIP). After exposing this disastrous program, we filed a lawsuit against the BLM. While the BLM announced reforms to the program as a result of the uproar we caused — their reforms are not enough and hundreds of horses and burros are still being dumped in kill pens. That’s why we’re dedicating part of the funds raised today to the victims of the Adoption Incentive Program. Your donation today will help to continue our lawsuit against the BLM and fuel our fight to prevent more wild horses and burros from entering the slaughter pipeline through the AIP. Will you make a 2x matched donation right now to fuel this important work? The BLM has failed the wild horses and burros that have been placed in jeopardy through the Adoption Incentive Program. But our work to help rescue the AIP’s victims and litigate for the termination of the program won’t stop. Will you make a donation to fuel our Legal Fund and our continued litigation against the BLM? Donate now and have your gift DOUBLED today! HAVE YOUR GIFT DOUBLED → DONATE NOW Thank you so much for your help, Meredith. Suzanne Roy Executive Director American Wild Horse Campaign ...

Thinking of all our AWHC supporters this Thanksgiving

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: On this Thanksgiving holiday — from all of us here at the American Wild Horse Campaign — I want to send my heartfelt thanks to you for your support and dedication to protecting America’s wild horses and burros. You have helped us accomplish some pretty amazing things this year, and for that, we are so grateful. Supporters like you helped us expose the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Adoption Incentive Program (AIP) as a pipeline to slaughter for “truckloads” of wild horses and burros. Our investigation led to a front-page New York Times exposé, which elevated this devastating issue to the national level. Your support provided our field team with the resources and equipment necessary to successfully implement the world’s largest PZP fertility control program for wild horses on Nevada’s Virginia Range. This groundbreaking program is proving that there is a better way to manage wild horses and burros besides brutally rounding them up with helicopters. And guess what? It’s working. This year, we reduced the foaling rate by more than 40% as compared to 2020. These incredible results armed our Government Relations team with the statistics and evidence necessary to secure $11 million in funding towards a comprehensive, humane fertility control vaccine program as part of the BLM’s 2022 Fiscal Year budget. Your efforts helped us defeat SJR3 — a resolution that called for the removal of close to 40,000 wild horses and burros from their homes in Nevada. And your generosity helped us support the rescues of innocent foals on the Virginia Range, like Hazel, and victims of the AIP including 12 BLM-branded burros from an Oklahoma kill pen and 10 unhandled mustangs from a kill pen in Colorado. As 2021 comes to a close, we are grateful for your advocacy, your financial support, and your passion and dedication to protecting the wild horses and burros we all cherish. Many battles lie before us in the new year as we work toward a better future for these magnificent animals, but with you on our side, we know we will prevail. All of us at AWHC wish you and your loved ones (human and non-human) a very happy and restful Thanksgiving holiday. Warmly, Suzanne Suzanne Roy Executive Director American Wild Horse Campaign P.S. Giving Tuesday is less than 1 week away! If you’d like to help kickstart our #GivingTuesday efforts, every gift made now through Tuesday will be matched ...
