A message from Lifetime Equine Refuge parent Charity, The Wild For Life Foundation
April 9, 2014Dear friends, animal lovers and humanitarians,
The Wild for Life Foundation needs your support now in order to continue our direct aid to the animals that we serve. With your support the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) has stepped up during very troubling times and taken responsibility for horses victimized by cruelty and difficult economic times. Together we have saved hundreds of horses from being butchered alive - but 'rescue' is just the beginning of a long, dedicated endeavor to provide the best quality of life for these captured, abused and neglected victims. The horses need us together more than ever to keep our promise of forever safe harbor and care.
We are counting on your support so we can continue our lifesaving work and continue feeding those whose lives we’ve saved together.
WFLF saves and rehabilitates horses in need, many of which come in as starvation cases because of the tough economy. We also rescue victimized wild horses who have been rounded up and are at risk of slaughter. For example, WFLF rescue team members are currently in the trenches on a large scale rescue mission in New Mexico with over 100 Mustangs whose lives are in grave danger. WFLF is helping to save the Monero Mustangs from going to slaughter through the provision of lifesaving hay and the immediate relocation of this large herd in family bands, including those that will be permanently re-homed through the WFLF Wild Horse Sanctuary Program. The current expansion of which will not only insure permanent safe harbor for many of these imperiled wild horses, but it will also provide community enrichment for adults and youth through wild horse observation and educational programming.
YOUR donation today will help save hundreds of lives.
Because of YOU and every single friend who has sent in donations this past week, 9000lbs of hay was just delivered to feed and save 100 imperiled Mustangs, and save a new born Mustang orphan foal to boot! However, this recent outpouring of support doesn’t mean Wild For Life Foundation is safe. WFLF’s operating budget to feed, house and care for 100 rescue horses exceeds a third of a million dollars each year. Each rescue horse costs about $350 a month to take care of, which by comparison to many other programs is half of the cost per horse. We do everything possible to keep expenses down and make your donation dollars go as far as possible for the horses. We are a volunteer based charity and our expert team of dedicated Board of Directors, Advisory Board, Honorary Board Members and CEO contributions of time and talent are all donated.
YOU make it possible for Wild for Life Foundation to save horses’ lives. We can’t do this work without you.
America’s horses need your help! Never before has there been a need so great for the protection of America’s horses. We receive heartbreaking calls and emails every single day, and knowing these horses will go to slaughter - and understanding the unspeakable torture they are forced to endure is more than most people can bear. We cry every time we have to say ‘no’.
Since founded in 2008, the Wild for Life Foundation, in just a few short years, has become internationally recognized as a leader in animal welfare. We have saved hundreds of lives and we are aiding our youth and veterans through the ‘Healing Hearts’ of horses. We’ve conducted undercover investigations; we’ve exposed cruelty, and held equine abusers to account. We’ve turned up the heat on the insidious trade of horsemeat; and have inspired more Americans to make compassionate, cruelty-free choices. Through our educational media program, WFLF’s multi-international-award winning film, SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES has become a powerful podium with a dynamic reach to animal lovers worldwide.
Despite our powerful and successful mission accomplishments, the fact is that overall donations are down, and the Wild for Life Foundation needs your support now in order to continue our lifesaving work.
The Wild For Life Foundation relies 100% on donations from caring and compassionate people like you. WFLF can and will continue to grow. We can and will save countless more lives; aid our youth and veterans, and continue to provide for those whom we are responsible for; but not without your financial support. Please consider making a meaningful donation today.
Your contribution of any size will make a difference!
