FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wild for Life Foundation Lifetime Equine Refuge launches “Serenity Acres Capital Campaign” to Raise Funds for Land Acquisition and New Rescue/ Sanctuary Facilities
Los Angeles, CA – April 29, 2013 – Wild for Life Foundation Lifetime Equine Refuge (WFLF-LER), a volunteer-run, nonprofit equine rescue, today announced the start of its “Serenity Acres Capital Campaign”, a fundraiser aimed at establishing a permanent home for the rescue. With the help of supporters, the organization hopes to raise $550,000 in donations this year.
Serving America’s wild and domestic horses since 2008, WFLF-LER has rescued dozens of horses from abuse, neglect and slaughter, provided support to owners in crisis and assisted in finding homes for dozens of adoptable horses in California and across the Nation. In addition to our work in equine rescue, WFLF provides the public with compelling educational resources, including its award winning documentary film, SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES, to promote wild horse conservation and preservation initiatives, the prevention of equine cruelty and the protection from slaughter.
“We are dedicated to the growth and success of our rescue and sanctuary program," said Katia Louise, President and Founder of Wild for Life Foundation. "The acquisition of land is crucial to meet the need for assistance by the many horses and their owners. Contributing to WFLF-LER’s “Serenity Acres Capital Campaign” puts us on the path to accomplish these vital goals while allowing individuals to show their support and act on their passion for horses.”
WFLF-LER main rescue facility is situated on a modest private ranch in the Lake Matthews area of S. Cal., with foster care facilities in adjacent counties. At present, WFLF-LER’s facilities limit the impact that our organization can make on the equine community. By acquiring its own land, and barn, WFLF-LER aims to expand its operations, become more self-sustaining and shift resources so our work can benefit more horses in crisis. The facilities will serve the urgent medical needs for incoming abused and neglected equines, the rehabilitation and training needs for horses in transition to new forever homes, augment our equine assisted learning program and provide sanctuary to our therapy equines, and open acreage our rescued Mustangs.
Charitable contributions to our land acquisition fund are welcomed. There is no minimum amount for contributions made directly to WFLF-LER to help support this project.
