Lifesaving Mission to Aid America's Horses

A message from Lifetime Equine Refuge parent Charity, The Wild For Life Foundation
April 9, 2014
Dear 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!

Sincerely,
Katia Louise

Raising Awareness to aid America's horses, heroes and youth

2014 Spring Benefit Highlights

Wild for Life Foundation’s Charity Spring Benefit to Celebrate Life, Horses and Healing and Honor our
Tenor Anthony Kearns performs at WFLF 2014 Spring Benefit
Veterans held on March 29th "was an exquisite evening of transformation” said Linda Harris, President of Ambassadors for Compassion. The event was held in Rancho Santa Fe and was hosted by Lisa and Scott Harris, Patent Attorney at Law Office of Scott C Harris, Linda Harris, Director of Ambassadors for Compassion; and prominent equine law attorney, Bing Bush, Jr. at the Law Offices of Bing I. Bush, Jr.  Event sponsors included the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes and the American Association of Equine Sports Preservation. 

The benefit was held to help seed funds for the new Wild for Life Foundation Charity Sanctuary & Wellness Center in North County San Diego which will provide programs with a focus on its community enrichment equine wellness activities; robust equine assisted programs for disadvantaged youth, active duty military, and veterans and their families. Meaningful donations were received from individual supporters and as part of the evening’s festivities; the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes presented a check to the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) for $2500.  We are honored to receive these essential funds from the
Coalition,” said Katia Louise, President and Founder WFLF.  “These funds will help meet critical needs for the operation of WFLF’s equine assisted wellness program for war-wounded veterans as they find healing through the power of horses.”
“It is an honor to be here and to work with the Wild For Life Foundation in partnership to help America’s horses, and America’s heroes – in a positive way that will save lives,” said Sergeant Matthew Pennington, U.S. Army (Ret.). War wounded heroes and at risk youth will benefit from learning, growth, and recovery opportunities through a healing partnership with horses. The program at the same time aids rescued horses whose lives have been saved from life threatening situations. 

“The need for a nonprofit community enrichment equine sanctuary and wellness center to benefit people and horses as partners in healing in San Diego County is dire,” added Ms. Louise. Just the day before WFLF’s benefit event the SanDiego Union Tribune reported the suicide of Camp Pendleton infantryman Cpl. Farrell Gilliam who had taken his own life after a long struggle with the invisible wounds of war. Sadly veterans account for 20 percent of U.S. suicides, and for youth between the ages of 10 and 24, suicide is the third leading cause of death, and suicide among Native American youth is 9 to 19 times as frequent as among other youths.  
“The expansion of WFLF’s sanctuary and wellness program is so important right here in San Diego County,” added Rob Pliskin, MSSA, LSW, EAGALA Dual Certified Professional, and WFLF BOD.  “Camp Pendleton is home to over 42,000 active duty Marines.  Over 23,000 Marine and Army Reservists come here to train, and most live nearby.  In 2011, the VA estimated over 235,000 Veterans live in San Diego and Imperial counties.  It hosted over 768 thousand outpatient visits, and enrolled over 4,300 warriors from Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Among the highlights of the WFLF benefit was a private musical concert by world-renowned Tenor
Anthony Kearns, and live reception vocals and piano by Rocky Randal and Richard James. Program speakers included Coalition representatives, Corporal Donny Daughenbaugh, U.S. Marine Corps (Ret), the Coalition’s Regional Vice President East Sergeant Matthew Pennington, U.S. Army (Ret.), Bing Bush, Jr., Rob Pliskin, Craig C Downer and Elder Daniel Ramos, Yamasee, Navajo and Apache.

The benefit helped to raise awareness on an international level and was the first in a series of fund raising efforts to benefit the WFLF Charity Serenity Sanctuary project. Financial contributions will literally help to save countless horses’ lives. Sponsorships will help to purchase, improve and equip the WFLF Serenity Sanctuary Center and Preserve, and will also endow essential program costs.

Fames Artist Peter Max to Donate Signature Artwork

Famed Artist Peter Max To Donate Artwork To The Wild For Life Foundation Charity, to benefit Equine Sanctuary - Uniting People and Horses as Partners in Healing

March 19, 2014, San Diego, CA -- The Wild for Life Foundation, a charitable foundation that has been at the forefront of efforts to rescue and provide safe harbor for at risk wild and domestic equines, and strives to provide equine assisted learning activities along with equine wellness and therapy programs to aid youth, active duty military and veterans, and others in need, today announced that famed artist and pop culture icon, Peter Max, will donate art work to be auctioned off in a live auction at the Foundation's Spring Benefit Reception on Saturday, March 29, 2014 in Rancho Santa Fe, CA.

Mr. Max's history with the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) dates back to 2011, during early production on the acclaimed documentary film, SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES: A NATION BETRAYED, when Max first became an Honorary Board Member. Max later donated the image of BOBBY 11 FREEDOM, a rescued New York Carriage Horse that was days from slaughter. The image of the portrait was forever immortalized through WFLF's international award winning film, "Saving America's Horses: A National Betrayed.

"I am so thankful that my art could be used in saving even one horse from any kind of cruelty. I am sincerely proud to have been a part of this great movie," Mr. Max said. "When the powerful and brilliant exposé, SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES, came to NYC, I learned that thousands of healthy vibrant horses are disappearing and suffering from criminal animal cruelty. This exposé has everything it takes to educate, engage and empower the public to effect social change but distribution is extremely expensive, resources are few, and there is limited funding," says Max. "WFLF rescue workers are working around the clock to break the cycle of animal cruelty for America's horses and they need our help."

One of the nation's most famous living artists, Peter Max is also a pop culture icon. His bold colors, uplifting images and uncommon artistic diversity have touched almost every phase of American culture and inspired many generations. He has painted for six U.S. Presidents, and his art is on display in Presidential Libraries and U.S. Embassies. From art that appeared on the first U.S. 10-cent stamp bearing the title "Preserve the Environment," to 235 U.S. Border murals greeting millions of people entering America each year, Mr. Max seeks to capture themes of America at its finest in his art.

"We are truly grateful for Peter Max's support of the Foundation," said Katia Louise, president and founder. "Peter is truly one of the world's most talented artists whose philanthropic generosity has helped so many important causes. We are thrilled to offer this special opportunity for others who will be able to own a signature painting by PETER MAX of themselves or their horse or even of their family and their horse together! It is wonderful to reconnect with Peter in a way that will help more lives to be saved."

Saving America's Horses
At the 2014 EAGALA Conference

Saving America's Horses Presents at the 2014 EAGALA Conference: The Wild for Life Foundation and Saving America's Horses is honored to partner with the The American Association of Equine Sports Preservation (AAESP) to present and exhibit at the 15th Annual EAGALA conference. The American Association of Equine Sports Preservation showcases equine-assisted programs that help children with autism, military veterans, and other victims of post-traumatic stress disorder. "We are pleased to report an overwhelming response to SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES, the featurette at the 2014 EAGALA Conference," said Katia Louise, international ward winning filmmaker. The SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES featurette, (a short version of the full length movie) screened at the EAGALA 15th Annual Conference in Mesquite, TX to a full house. Filmmaker Katia Louise joined the viewers live for a brief Q & A via telecom following the screening.  WFLF's EAGALA conference booth provided visitors with educational materials about the issues that impact the safety and welfare and America's horses most urgently.  

“We are delighted to see the outpouring of support for this extremely important cause,” added Katia Louise. “SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a powerhouse narrative. It takes in every aspect and tells its story with intelligence and a deep-running composure.” -Paula Bacon, former Mayor Kaufman TX.  

Many thanks to Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) BOD Rob Pliskin, MSSA, LSW, CDCA, EAGALA Educator, for Presenting the SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES featurette, together with other clips including the recent arrival of 17 rescued Navajo fillies and colts by WFLF to Bonsall, CA.

Wild for Life Foundation is expanding its equine assisted learning programs in conjunction with its Equine Sanctuary facility in San Diego, CA. The successful placement of rehabilitated rescue horses in turn serve community needs through therapy programs as they re-enter equine communities.  The new Sanctuary Preserve will become a permanent home for many rescued wild horses and also provide community enrichment services through innovative programs including EAGALA to benefit youth, adults and veterans.   

Uniting People and Horses as Partners in Healing
Wild for Life Foundation is expanding its equine sanctuary programs and facilities in conjunction with its equine assisted learning programs so we can save more lives. In the year 2012, WFLF began development of our vision for the new millennium, the western regional equine preserve plan comprised of natural habitat preserves and captive wildlife sanctuaries providing permanent homes for America's imperiled wild equines. Phase one of the plan includes the acquisition of new facilities in North County San Diego, CA where the mild climate, lush vegetation and rolling hills of the proposed WFLF Serenity Center are the perfect setting for an animal sanctuary and small preserve.

The sanctuary center will become the new home base for WFLF's Healing Hearts equine assisted learning and wellness program where horses and people are partners in healing.
