Highgrove Wild Burros Find Sanctuary after Losing their Range-land Homes

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Riverside County, CA – March 22, 2016 – The Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) today announced the
arrival of nine herd members of the Highgrove Donkeys, including six pregnant Jennies and three babies which had recently been rounded up from their native range-land homes. 

The Wild For Life Foundation and Donkey Land have been working together on a rescue/ sanctuary partnership over the last few months to enable the placement of captured/ unreleasable and unadoptable wild donkeys into WFLF’s Wild Burro Preservation and Sanctuary Program. "We are proud to work together with Donkey Land in this rescue/ sanctuary partnership,” says Katia Louise, founder and president of the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF).  “We look forward to a long lasting partnership for the benefit of these and other at risk

wild burros."Sanctuary placement through WFLF will help preserve their vital social and family structure which is so important to their preservation as a species. Charity missions like the ‘WFLF Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission’ help raise awareness and essential funds to aid at-risk wild burros that need urgent care and safe harbor  after losing their freedom, their homes and their families during roundups. 

"Donkey Land is honored to take part in WFLF’s Wild Burro Preservation and Sanctuary Program on behalf of these nine precious burros we rescued,” says Wendy Petrunio, a director at Donkey Land.  “These nine special burros will be able to reunite with other Highgrove family members that WFLF has rescued after being rounded up. There is nothing better than helping create a happy ending.” 

  
Just last year WFLF issued an Emergency Rescue Resolution to help save and preserve Southern California’s at-risk Wild Burros. Wild burros are being rounded up and removed by from their native homelands in Highgrove, CA by County Officials to prevent them from being hit by cars and trains.  The burros have been drawn to the busy streets where well-meaning residents and drivers have flocked to feed and water them.  It’s been reported that number of burros in the area have already been struck and killed by cars.  More than two dozen wild burros have recently been rounded up by the local County animal shelter.  It’s anticipated that more wild burros from the same area will soon be captured. 

Rescue team members of WFLF's Wild Burro Rescue and

Recovery Mission are working around the clock behind the scenes to provide lifesaving services and safe harbor for as many wild burros as possible.  "We are dealing with a crisis situation," says Katia Louise, WFLF Executive Director. "It's a tragedy. It’s dangerous for everyone and burros are dying."  Riverside County Animal Services (RCDAS) has defined the situation as an urgent matter.

“We are dedicated to saving, protecting and preserving wild and domestic equines through rescue, sanctuary and education,” said Katia Louise.  “Central to WFLF’s Wild Equine Preservation Mission is our commitment to help see that wild equines are able to maintain their natural social structures. Fundamental to the core of WFLF’s equine rescue and sanctuary program is our commitment to assure a forever safe haven habitat for each and every animal that comes through our doors.”

Wild burros are losing their once protected native homes on America’s public lands. As the remaining number of Wild Horses and Burros in the U.S. nears extinction, education and appreciation through the protection and observation of Wild Burros Horses in natural sanctuary environments becomes tantamount to their survival as a species. America’s Wild Equids cannot be reproduced once they are gone.

WFLF’s Wild Horse and Burro Conservation Mission strives to

preserve and protect the lives of rare and historic wild equines as part of the natural ecosystem and educate people about the need for the preservation of this threatened native species.

Support for WFLF’s Wild Burro Program can be made in a variety of ways. One can become a donor, sponsor a wild herd, make a contribution toward WFLF’s sanctuary land acquisition project, volunteer, and "take action" through social media by raising awareness.

Wild For Life Foundation launches campaign to help keep wild Mustangs and burros safe and protected


Monday, Feb 22, 2016, Los Angeles, CA – The Wild For Life Foundation launches campaign to help keep wild Mustangs and burros safe and protected. WFLF warns the public that the future of America’s wild horses and burros is in jeopardy.  


With human encroachment on natural habitats a constant feature of
our modern world, America's wild and historic Mustangs are quickly losing their Native home lands. As the remaining number of Wild Horses in the U.S. nears extinction, the need for their legal protection becomes tantamount to their survival as a species. America’s Wild Horses cannot be reproduced once they are gone.


Charity missions like WFLF’s “WILD AND FREE” campaign help to raise awareness and the essential funds to aid wild horses and burros that need rescue and sanctuary services after being rounded up, starved neglected, discarded or discovered in other life threatening danger.


“The number of animals we serve through our rescue and sanctuary program has grown exponentially since our beginning, from just a few animals annually to more than one hundred each year,” said Katia Louise, WFLF President and Founder.  And since late 2014, the WFLF has additionally has met the needs of over two hundred victimized rare and wild Mustangs, including over four dozen pregnant mares and orphan foals. WFLF also continues to provide urgently needed veterinary medical care, nutritious hay, transport and safe natural habitats for over seventy five rescued rare and historic wild horses and burros who reside at WFLF’s sanctuary facilities. 


Will you help save and protect wild horses and burros by buying a
Hope Tees for Horses WILD AND FREE charity t-shirt? Funds raised through these t-shirts will help pay for urgently needed provisions including lifesaving hay and medical care for at-risk Mustangs served by the Wild for Life Foundation. 


“We are often stretched to capacity as we respond to the great number of animals that come into our program from across the country,” adds Ms Louise. “We can’t do this work without you. Your continued support makes it possible to carry out our mission.”




‘HOPE Tees for Horses’ is a powerful lifesaving project under WFLF’s Saving America’s Horses program, and this year’s theme is "WILD AND FREE”.  

The new artful design features a wild American Mustang filly named Kachina, (which means spirit). After losing her freedom, her home and her family on America’s open range-lands Kachina was about to lose her life to slaughter. WFLF saved
Kachina and her family and brought them to safe harbor under WFLF’s sanctuary program where they can live out their lives, free from cruelty and with the assurance of never being at risk of roundup or slaughter again. Kachina’s touching story of courage, survival, love and triumph is represents hope for America's endangered Mustangs who now find themselves targeted for extinction on their quickly disappearing and threatened Native home lands.  Kachina is just one of one of many Wild American Mustangs that you'll be helping by simply purchasing and wearing some of these artful t-shirts.   


WFLF needs and respectfully seeks your support. We rely 100% on donations to carry out this important lifesaving work.


Thank you in advance for your continued and devoted support.


With warmest regards,
Katia Louise, President, Founder

UPDATE on GLORIA (Aiyana)

UPDATE on GLORIA (Aiyana) – Gloria was seen at the veterinary hospital for her pre-op ultrasound this past week and she was a real trooper. However, it was determined that it would be too risky for her to go forward with her needed surgery at this time due to the enormous size of her abdominal hernia. Gloria will therefore continue to be at ‘high-risk’ until she is able to undergo this vital surgery.
 Our rescue team is working around the clock bathing her in love and providing her with the special care she needs. We are standing strong in our commitment to help this sweet, young and beautiful horse, and we remain hopeful for her future. Continued donations are needed and will go directly toward her lifesaving care.
Your support for this important mission is greatly appreciated. Please continue to help spread the word by sharing information about this important cause with your friends and family. Together we can make a difference for horses in need.
