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 however, several months later, WFLF was forced to dismiss Ms. Claypool.

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
