A year of threats

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: Help us unlock our $100,000 match before New Year’s -- and DOUBLE your impact We couldn’t have predicted at the beginning of the year how difficult it would be for wild horses and burros in 2018. Efforts to legalize slaughter in the federal budget. Brutal roundups almost year-round. A plan to move forward with cruel and risky sterilization surgeries on wild mares. A federal agency’s attempt to sell wild horses knowingly and directly for slaughter for the first time ever. It’s been nonstop attacks for the entire year -- but we’ve been able to fight back, because of your support. We’ve worked with our allies in Congress to maintain slaughter protections in the budget, documented the worst of the roundups so that Americans know how their tax dollars are being spent, and successfully stopped the inhumane sterilization experiments in court. But this fight is not over. The fate of the innocent wild horses pictured above -- rounded up just months ago from our public lands in California and now in danger of being sold for slaughter -- and so many other wild horses and burros hangs in the balance. By making a donation, you can help us carry on the critical work to defend wild horses and burros into the coming year... work like the litigation and grassroots/political action that has so far held off the slaughter of cherished California wild mustangs. Remember, now through December 31, your contribution will be DOUBLED, thanks to a generous matching gift offer up to $100,000. That means your gift goes twice as far for wild horses and burros! Please, make double the impact by chipping in now. Thank you! Grace Kuhn, Communications Director Donate ...

Our year in review

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: What a year it’s been! With your help, we’ve achieved some significant victories in our fight to protect America’s wild horses and burros. Watch our recap video of 2018 to see just how much we’ve been able to accomplish this year: If we could list every single one of you in the credits at the end of the video, we would. Why? At every step, it has been you – your calls, emails, donations, and action – that has propelled this movement. We’ve fought for wild horses and burros in court, warding off threats to wild herds and their lands. We’ve joined with elected officials in retaining all-important slaughter restrictions in the federal budget. We’ve been able to document the BLM’s inhumane roundups to hold them accountable and bring public awareness of the issue to a whole new level. And through press and media attention, we’ve grown our movement to new heights, as more people than ever have become champions to these threatened, majestic creatures. Watch our video recap of 2018 here! This year has given us every reason to be hopeful for the future, despite so many battles that lie ahead. Thank you for a great year. AWHC Team Donate ...

The last big action of 2018

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: News & Alerts Congress has extended the time before it votes on a final government spending bill by two weeks.  Some lawmakers are using this extension to try to ram in all sorts of clauses into the final bill, including language that would strip critical protections for wild horses and open the door to slaughter. We have to act now. Call or email your Representatives to keep wild horses and burros protected from slaughter. Members of both the Agriculture and Interior committees are considering dangerous changes that could end the prohibition on horse slaughter for human consumption. Other changes to the bill could include allowing cruel and untested sterilization experiments on mares. This is not the first time we’ve faced this threat from Washington, and we know that if we raise our voices, we’ll win the protections wild horses need. We’ve won before. And we can win again. Please act now. Our Representatives need to know where you stand on protecting wild horses. Click here to send a message to Congress. Thanks, AWHC Team Take Action ...

Two big steps to protect California’s wild horses

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign: Last month, 932 wild horses were rounded up by the U.S. Forest Service in the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in California - with a portion to be sold for $1 a piece, by the truckload, with no limitation on slaughter. We can’t let this happen. Our team has been working around the clock to save these horses from slaughter. Now, we have two big updates:
  • On Tuesday, California Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) introduced legislation to protect the state’s wild and domestic horses from slaughter. We’re working closely with his office to create and pass a strong bill to accomplish this goal.
  • Last week, our legal team filed a motion for preliminary injunctionin federal court to block the Forest Service’s slaughter plan, which clearly violates state and federal law. We’re asking the court to prohibit the government from selling horses without limitation, which it currently plans to start on January 15.
We are doing everything possible to protect our wild horses from slaughter. But we need your help to carry on this critically important work. Can you donate $50, $100 or more to support our efforts? Thanks for helping us defend California’s horses. We’ll keep you updated on this breaking situation. Thanks, Suzanne Donate ...
