About Radar:
Radar is a little baby boy burro whose mommy was living wild in the rural foothills of Southern California together with her family of wild burros. Urban development is now infringing on their homeland and their way of life has changed. Radar's mommy and several of her family members were recently captured by local authorities to help protect them from getting hit by cars. Wild For Life Foundation recently accepted 9 of these burros into its rescue and sanctuary program. Six of the incoming burros were pregnant when they were captured. Radar is one of the little babies who life was saved through Wild For Life Foundation's Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission.

Welcoming our newest arrival to Lifetine Equine Refuge at WFLF's Wild Burro Rescue and Sanctuary

Wild For Life Foundation's Lifetime Equine Refuge is pleased to announce its newest arrival! A new born baby wild burro saved! His mom was pregnant when she was captured from the wild. 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.

"We extend our most sincere gratitude to our devoted supporters for helping us to save these precious lives," said Katia Louise of the Wild For Life Foundation. 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."

The WFLF Wild Burro Rescue and Sanctuary Mission is dedicated to saving and preserving America's wild burros and assuring their protection from roundups and slaughter through rescue, sanctuary and education.

Wild For Life Foundation Successfully Saved the lives of approx 150 former Monero mustang victims from gruesome slaughter

It was in early 2014 that the Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) received a desperate plea for urgent assistance from Monero Mustangs, a New Mexico (NM) nonprofit.   Sadly the Monero’s herd of Mustangs found themselves stranded in deserted feed lots without access to water or hay, and in


imminent risk of slaughter.  The Monero Mustangs NPO in fact transferred title of all of its horses to in enable their rescue from slaughter. Without the resources to house, feed and care for these innocent victims, the Monero Mustangs NPO was on the verge of losing all its horses’ lives to unspeakable slaughter.  Monero Mustang founder, Sandi Claypool publicized her gratitude to WFLF for its lifesaving services in her statement, “We hit rock bottom and there was no hope in site. If it wasn’t for Katia and the Wild for Life Foundation, our entire herd would have been brutally butchered alive for their meat.”


The Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF), a nationally acclaimed animal rescue charity in fact raised the needed funds and resources to provide emergency supplies and services including hay, veterinary medical care, and evacuation out of NM for these wild horses. WFLF additionally paid for the transportation of approximately one hundred and fifty of these horses to be evacuated out of life threatening danger, for placement into protected natural habitat environments in California, Arizona, Texas and Colorado. WFLF additionally paid for ongoing essential vet care, feed and housing for the Mustangs who began arriving to WFLF facilities, under WFLF’s program in California in September, 2014.   And that's how the WFLF-Monero Mustang Rescue Mission was born.  It was a matter of life and death urgency and an effort to prevent the most egregious cruelty inflicted upon animals by mankind.
Approximately 50 of the incoming herd members were found to be unadoptable, including pregnant and nursing mares, foals, colts, fillies, senior Mustangs, malnourished and injured horses, and conservation mares and stallions. These 50 horses were evacuated out of NM and transported to California by WFLF where they officially entered into WFLF's wild horse rescue and sanctuary program.

The Monero Mustang NPO then had in fact ceased to operate in NM. Its founder, Ms. Claypool came to California (CA) where she joined WFLF's Wild Horse Program.   Regrettably, it was later discovered that Ms. Claypool violated numerous WFLF policies. WFLF thereafter ended its relationship with Ms. Claypool and dismissed her.

By June of 2015 WFLF announced that its rescue mission as related to the Monero Mustangs had officially concluded.  As an equine rescue and sanctuary however, WFLF’s charity work continues in the ongoing care and provision of feed and housing for the remaining 15 former “Monero’ mustangs whom WFLF saved from slaughter.  These wild horses have remained under WFLF's primary care and title since day one.  WFLF is pleased to report that all of these Mustangs are healthy and thriving together with all of the other rescued wild horses that have become members of WFLF’s Heritage Herd, under WFLF’s wild horse rescue and sanctuary program.

WFLF has accomplished enormous success locally and on a National level since it was first founded in 2008. Katia Louise, WFLF and its staff and BOD have an excellent reputation in the equine welfare and nonprofit industry. WFLF exercises best practices in all its operations, including the primary care of its beneficiaries such as the rescued and at-risk animals WFLF serves, particularly equines. Any false statements should not defame that reputation.  WFLF’s Monero Mustang Rescue Mission was a very substantial and successful rescue mission for the horses which can read about on the WFLF website. http://www.wildforlifefoundation.org/wflfmonero.html

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.

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
