Wild For Life Foundation Launches Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission

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


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

Recently rescued wild horses soon to roam in Northern California

Great news!  We are thrilled to announce our final phase in one of the momentous WFLF Wild Mustang Rescue and Recovery Missions. Approximately 150 wild horses that had previously lost everything and were about to ship to slaughter, were rescued by the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) in 2014.  Approximately 48 members of the herd were later welcomed into WFLF’s wild horse recovery center where they began arriving last summer. We are thrilled to announce that a number of these horses will soon be ready to leave WFLF's transitional recovery center in Southern California for new beginnings.

WFLF founded this Rescue and Recovery Mission to save the lives of these majestic wild
horses and continued to pay for their ongoing feed, care and housing for over 50 of them, including incoming foals, pregnant and nursing mares and others with special medical needs.  The final leg of this special mission opens the door so that their legacy can live on.

But funds are urgently needed to help pay costs for fuel/ transport and to pay for quality hay and vet care through this crucial time of transition. Time is of the essence to get them safely transported before the hot summer months kick in.

Your assistance is needed to help us raise needed funds to make this opportunity a reality for this special group of Mustangs.  Will you help us assure a bright future for these wild horses that have previously suffered and lost so much? We are doing our best to secure these funds in a time when there is little to share. We are relying on $5, 10 and $20 donations from good, caring, horse loving people that want to see America's wild horses have a fighting chance against those that have been killing them and relentlessly exploited them, and driving them to near extinction.  Please help us now. Your tax deductible donation to the Wild For Life Foundation will help pay for their needed transport and lifesaving provisions so that we can successfully carry out and complete this monumental rescue mission. Will you help us meet this challenge by making a donation today? Will you also share this and ask your friends to match your donation? We truly cannot do this without you. Please stand by us now. Use the link below to make a donation now. 

With your support these horses will soon be able to embark on this next momentous leg of a special journey and begin their new lives on wide open pastures in Northern California. Please consider making a meaningful donation to help us carry out this important mission.  Wild for Life Foundation is an all volunteer nonprofit charity dedicated to saving, protecting and preserving wild and domestic equines. Your gift is tax deductible and will be directly utilized to help these horses.

With gratitude,
Katia Louise, President
The Wild For Life Foundation
