Meet Sassy!!

Sassy, the Thoroughbred finds forever safety and loving care

WFLF Lifetime Equine Refuge welcomes Sassy, a Thoroughbred mare, just rescued. We extend our thanks for the kindness and generosity of the many donors that made her rescue possible. We are partnering with SCTR who will be taking Sassy in and providing her care and training. Your donations have secured a full year of sponsorship for this very lucky horse.

Sassy is a 14 year old Thoroughbred that never raced and due to economic problems, she was at risk for slaughter. This beautiful mare just needed a second chance, but her days became numbered without a safe place to go.  Supporters of Wild for Life Foundation were alerted that Sassy needed help and a full week went by while volunteers made calls on her behalf. It had come down to the wire for Sassy, but a handful of dedicated supporters scrambled to raise enough funds for this very lucky horse. 

This week WFLF Lifetime Equine Refuge rescued and delivered Sassy to our partnering rescue, Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue (SCTR). Sassy was so excited to arrive at SCTR :) You could see the smile in her eyes!

Sassy was able to spend the afternoon in the round pen just after arriving, where she rolled and rolled and rolled! Each time before she got up she did this really cute pose.

The fight to end horse slaughter has gone on for well over a decade in the U.S. with protective legislation introduced each congressional session; only to be later squelched as a result of the powerful lobby that is pushing to reopen horse slaughter plants in America.

Documented evidence of egregious violations and a lack of enforcement by the USDA in U.S. slaughterhouses led to the defunding of USDA inspections in 2007, but in the absence of federal ban on horse slaughter, our wild and domestic horses continue to be shipped across federal borders where they are slaughtered just as inhumanely to this very day.

In order to effect change, we  are educating the public through the world's most powerful visual resource, cinema. "Saving America's Horses - A Nation Betrayed" is the lifesaving documentary film that can change everything for our horses. It's an intelligent and hard hitting expose` that will wake up and shake up the public so that they will take the action needed to pass pending federal legislation.

As we work around the clock to bring the truth forward we also rely on your continued support to make freedom for the horses a reality. By helping to spread the word and telling your friends about WFLF's "Saving America's Horses" and Lifetime Equine Refuge, you are giving the horses the voice they so very much deserve.
