Circle the Wagons to help WFLF Save and Protect America's Rescue Horses and Burros


Jan 31, 201, Riverside, CA - The severe and relentless rains and flooding of these past few weeks in Southern California have put Wild For Life Foundation’s Family of America’s Rescue Horses and Burros in Dire Need of Your Help.

A series of winter storms slammed our equine rescue facilities with torrential rain, flooding, and mud barreling through, washing out internal rescue access ways and leaving our the grounds saturated with ditches over 6' deep and up to 6' wide at the home of the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF), and peaceful harbor rescue and sanctuary for over 75 horses and burros. 

Our all volunteer rescue team members have been digging trenches through mud and debris for days to drain pooling water, from the most recent onslaught of intense sustained, pouring rain, coupled with hail and snow which has left us crippled and in need of urgent disaster relief. 

The washed out roads have made the delivery of hay and feed very difficult. Our facilities have been hit hard with extensive storm damage. Urgent financial support is needed to clean up and get back to regular business.  

In just nine years, the Wild For Life Foundation has built a solid reputation based on integrity and compassion with its extraordinary work in advocacy and hands-on care for animals in desperate need of help. The successful WFLF rescue and sanctuary program specializes in the lifesaving and rehabilitation of wild and domestic equines and provides a safe home and haven, for animals in need.

The Wild for Life Foundation counts on your care and compassion to help us to protect and be there for our equine family, our needs are immediate —PLEASE give today. Donations can be made online, by mail or by wire transfer.

Mustangs run free after narrowly escaping slaughter

This is a group of Mustang arrivals to Wild For Life Foundation's Lifetime equine Refuge sanctuary program - WFLF MMRM circa 2014. These Mustangs, including three pregnant mares had lost their safe and peaceful home in NM when their former owner lost their gratis lease, and had no other means to save them. If not saved through the WFLF, approximately 150 horses, whose lives were in imminent danger, would have shipped to slaughter.

This was their first time to run free after being rescued out of a feedlot and narrowly escaping slaughter. Three healthy baby foals (two fillies and a colt) were born within a couple weeks of their arrival to California at one of WFLF's wild horse sanctuary facilities. They have since grown into healthy happy youngsters.

Some of these Mustangs are featured in Wild For Life Foundation's international award winning documentary film, Saving America's Horses: A Nation Betrayed which was released bi-coastally to theaters in 2012.

Approximately 100 members of the herd were transported out of NM and placed in sanctuary homes in several other states.
The last few remaining herd members were accepted into WFLF's family of rescued wild horses.
