Wild For Life Foundation Launches Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Riverside, CA - December. 22, 2015 – The Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) has issued an Emergency Rescue Resolution to help save and preserve 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 and impounded by the local County animal shelter.  Another 10-20 wild burros will soon face the same fate.  
Rescue team members of WFLF's Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission are working behind the scenes in effort to provide lifesaving rescue 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.
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.
 

“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.  Additionally, through this Mission, rescued wild equines are given an opportunity to heal and thrive in WFLF’s natural habitat sanctuary and recovery center.
 

Support for WFLF’s Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission 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, or "take action" through social media by raising awareness.

Lifetime Equine Refuge welcomes ‘Random’, a glorious wild paint to its Sanctuary

GREAT NEWS!

July 27, 2015 – Wild For Life Foundation, Studio City, CA: We are pleased to welcome our newest
addition to our wild horse sanctuary. ‘Random’ a wild horse paint of significant size had been feral and living on the Edwards Air Force base, and then sadly he was sent to auction.

“Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) is delighted to collaborate with Farralone Farms, the rescue that saved Random from auction,” said Katia Louise, president WFLF. “We are honored to accept him into our program and look forward to providing him with the ongoing special care and space he needs.”

“Random was not even halter broke and we had our work cut out,” said Saskia Chiesa of Farralone Farms. “Recently he spent 2 weeks with Monty Roberts during a clinic for Gentling Wild Horses.” It had been determined by Monty that Random had previously been severely abused and used for horse tripping.

At Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) rescue is just the beginning of a long dedicated journey to assuring peaceful and healthy lives for victimized horses. Through Wild for Life Foundation's Emergency Equine Rescue and Recovery Mission we save and evacuate equines from life threatening situations and disaster. We partner with animal control services to facilitate and provide for the rescue and placement of equines seized in animal cruelty cases. Through WFLF's Safe Haven Emergency Rescue and Recovery, we serve the community needs of at risk equines both locally and on a national level. As part of WFLF's Safe Haven Emergency Rescue and Recovery program, WFLF's Wild Horse Safe Haven Protection Program (WHSHPP) was founded to provide safe and healing environments for incoming imperiled wild horses that need special time to recover and heal from emotional trauma and physical injuries sustained during capture and removal from the wild and or their traumatic experience in the slaughter pipeline.

The Wild For Life Foundation offers positive alternatives which protect and preserve America’s Wild Horses. Having developed innovative methods for sanctuary management that include community enrichment and sustainable ecological approaches, Wild For Life Foundation’s present need is for general operating support for its Mustang Sanctuary Program. Support for Wild For Life Foundation's Mustang Sanctuary & Indigenous Heritage Project can be made in a variety of ways. One can become a donor or sponsor, sponsor a wild herd, purchase or donate acreage towards the expanding the Wild For Life Foundation Land Trust’, volunteer at the Sanctuary, participate in some of the educational programs, or "take action" through social media by raising awareness.

Lifetime Equine Refuge is the primary equine rescue program under the Wild For Life Foundation. Donations to the Wild for Life Foundation are tax deductible to the full extent permitted by law. Federal ID No. 26-3052458

Mission accomplished with integrity and honor; WFLF’s Wild Horse Rescue and Recovery Program – A Historic Living Legacy

July 27, 2015 – Wild For Life Foundation, Studio City, CA: We are pleased to announce that approximately fifteen of the Spanish wild horses recently rescued by WFLF and permanently accepted under
the WFLF umbrella, including all the babies that were born in California, together with many of the incoming foals, have been successfully relocated from our transitional wild horse recovery center and into WFLF’s sanctuary. These former victims of displacement are loving life as permanent members of WFLF's Wild Horse Heritage Herd!

“WOPILA!! For 'WILD FOR LIFE FOUNDATION!' A 'LoveHeart' for Horses organization that has brought ALL Nations together to preserve a sacred relative and their sacred way of life,” said Spiritual Leader, Daniel Cualtli Yahtl Ramos of the Dine, Apache and Yamassee tribes. “Pilamaya WFLF for Loving and caring for our ancestors children. AHO!”

The Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) founded the 'WFLF - M-O-N-E-R-O-MUSTANG RESCUE MISSION' as crisis intervention to save the lives of over one hundred and fifty majestic wild horses who had become stranded and in imminent risk of slaughter. Through WFLF's Wild Horse Rescue and Recovery Program, we saved their lives, provided them with the protection they needed to keep them safe from slaughter and we have preserved their historic living legacy.

"Through immense effort and with the utmost grace, integrity and honesty, WFLF transported these horses from near death to ultimate freedom,” said Jay Coskie, Vice President, the Wild For Life Foundation. “I applaud WFLF’s extraordinary commitment to its mission. WFLF’s work is an inspiration for anyone who cares about animals, and especially equines.”

BACKGROUND:
The WFLF - M-O-N-E-R-O-MUSTANG RESCUE MISSION was founded by the Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) early in 2014 as a grassroots rescue and recovery mission to rescue and save the lives of over one hundred and fifty wild horses after the Monero Mustangs (a New Mexico nonprofit) lost their pasture lease and nearly lost the lives of all their horses to slaughter. Sadly, the Monero’s entire herd of Mustangs had found themselves displaced and imperiled in feed lots. The Monero Mustangs group had given up ownership of approximately one hundred and fifty of their horses in hopes of placing them into new forever homes. But, without the resources to house, feed and care for them, the Monero Mustangs was on the verge of losing all their horses forever.

 WFLF and its dedicated team of volunteers indeed placed their lives on hold over the last eighteen months working around the clock to save these Mustangs and assure they received the care and provisions they needed. This WFLF wild horse rescue and recovery mission successfully served as crisis intervention by providing lifesaving emergency services and provisions including quality hay, veterinary medical care, transportation and housing for these imperiled and slaughter-bound Mustangs. This mission also successfully facilitated the relocation and permanent placement of approximately one hundred and fifty wild horses in small groups and in family bands, into new forever homes, natural habitat environments and rehabilitation programs.

WFLF additionally accepted approximately fifty of these at risk Mustangs directly into WFLF's wild horse program and facilities, including malnourished and injured horses, pregnant and nursing mares, foals and conservation stallions. WFLF has covered all of their expenses since their arrival last summer, including their housing, feed and medical care.

Approximately thirty three of these formerly victimized horses have now been transferred for placement in sanctuary in Northern California where they can freely graze. Although WFLF has now ended its support for the Monero Mustangs NPO, and this mission is concluded, our work continues in the ongoing care and provision of feed and housing for the remaining previous Monero refugees and all the other rescued wild horses that have become permanent members of our Heritage Herd under WFLF’s program.

Caring for untouchable wild horse oftentimes calls for the utilization of prescription sedation which must be
administered by a licensed veterinary medical doctor so that these powerful animals can be handled safely and receive treatment without causing added stress or injury. Providing this kind of quality care to wild Mustangs is costly, and our expenses to house, feed, and care for these and other rescued Mustangs have added up to tens of thousands of dollars.

WFLF relies 100% on tax deductible donations to pay for these costs and our work is made possible by continued financial support from private individuals like you. Please, consider making a meaningful donation today!

As always we thank you for your support for this important cause.
For the horses~

Sincerely,
Katia Louise
President, the Wild For Life Foundation
Director, Saving America’s Horses
