BREAKING NEWS


Awe Inspiring Landmark Premiere Spotlights Urgent Global Environmental and Humanitarian Crisis

August 12, 2016, Studio City, CA – WFLF Humanion Films today announced the release of its featurette documentary film Saving America's Horses. The powerful film contrasts shots of noble, beautiful, galloping animals with well-researched, shocking statistics and brings to screen a searing indictment of special interests and governmental agencies involved in the predatory exploits of America's horses. Viewers can now watch the film through Vimeo On-Demand in HD or SD on their TVs, phones, computers and tablets. 

Audiences worldwide can now watch the SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES’ featurette online and share the film with their friends!  The rental of the SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES featurette includes 24 hour streaming access for just $5 through Vimeo which can also be enjoyed through iOS, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast.


SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a powerful podium with a dynamic reach to humanitarians and animal lovers worldwide. This intelligent exposé also reveals how the public has been misled by several government agencies and corporate interests that run over the laws that are supposed to protect the horses, people and the environment.  "Saving America’s Horses helps spotlight what is becoming an urgent global humanitarian crisis – the pollution of fresh water. The RBC Blue Water Project is our commitment to protecting the lifeblood of this planet that we all need to share." — Jeff Boyd, Regional President, Ontario North and East, RBC Royal Bank

"It is the time we live in now; the moment of truth... it is time to come together and acknowledge what we are doing to ourselves" - Daniel Ramos, tribal spiritual leader.  Film North's theme; One Word, One World; Environment became the perfect conduit for “Saving America’s Horses” environmental message. Winner of Best Environmental Film in Canada, this intelligent and powerful film explores the destruction of life on our planet by looking at the pollution of fresh water, the degradation of open range lands and how we treat the animals that we share our world with; such as the horse.

“Unpacks a multi-layered conspiracy — fueled by a parade of misinformation— against the survival and proliferation of horses.”
— Gary Goldstein LA TIMES

The SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES featurette brings to screen brand new scenes and footage, plus updated statistics from the all new digitally re-mastered full length documentary film, SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES: A NATION BETRAYED now slated for release through educational venues including universities, schools and libraries and onto television/ cable and DVD. The original SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES documentary won numerous awards on the international festival circuit and was then successfully released to theaters in LA and NYC in December of 2012.  The feature length film also qualified for Oscar consideration which brought the issues impacting America's horses into the mainstream. 

Bringing together a wide spectrum of hard-hitting, sometimes opposing viewpoints the film lays down evidence for the Full Monty of objectionable behavior, including neglect, cruelty, deception, and profiteering. The victims run the gamut, from those who eat the meat filled with carcinogenic and other harmful drugs, to the horses themselves, wild horses poached from government land, Thoroughbred race horses who pass through the system to oblivion, domestic horses who outlive their welcome and are sent to slaughter. SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a compelling, provocative and a rallying cry for justice and integrity.


“An intelligent, powerful film, “SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES” is like a scorched earth weapon aimed at incinerating the lies and ending horse slaughter with laser sharp truth--Agent Orange to the lying, ignorant malevolence and greed that continue to exact a terribly cruel toll on horses and people. Please support this film,” says Paula Bacon, former mayor, Kaufman, TX.  "Saving America's Horses is Fantastic! Powerful and compelling” — Greg MacGillivary, MacGillivary Freeman Films (IMAX)

Critic reviews for the feature length version of this film describe it as "A provocative rallying cry for justice and integrity" - THE QUAD CINEMA, NYC "Outstanding" - LA SPLASH MAGAZINE "Impassioned" - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER "Shocking statistics… "A searing indictment" -VARIETY "Filled with facts" - NY TIMES “A broad and balanced spectrum of opinion through interviews with veterinarians, trainers, policymakers and celebrity horsemen including Paul Sorvino and Willie Nelson, among others” - ABOUT.COM

The issues impacting America’s horses have raised international concern for the welfare of the horses, the people and the environment. Many of the nation's foremost experts and leaders in the movement have united together to have their voices heard through SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES.  With over 88,000,000 people that attend horse-related events in the USA each year, America’s interest in what’s happening to them has never been greater.


“America's horses are disappearing and along with them goes a part of us, says filmmaker, Katia Louise.  “We can't bring back those we've lost, but we have the power to make a difference for generations to come.” In an effort to save, protect and preserve wild and domestic equines, as opposed to the promotion of horse slaughter and widespread roundups throughout the American West, Saving America’s Horses’ Director, Katia Louise is calling on members of the public who care about the horses and the environment to join in a united stance for the horses with Saving America’s Horses by going to www.savingamericashorses.org and clicking on the join button, which will continue to raise awareness and provide ongoing education on this critical issue.

The Wild For Life Foundation is thrilled about the success of SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES, and to make a real difference, philanthropic sponsorships, grants and other sources of funding are being sought to put the powerful full length feature film out into the mainstream. Proceeds from the rental of the Saving America’s Horses featurette benefit the Wild For Life Foundation charity and its Saving America’s Horses program.

Saving America's Horses fights for lives of at-risk horses and burros

At risk horses and burros caught in the crossfire after losing their freedom, their families and nearly losing
their lives.  These innocent horses and burros, saved from cruelty, roundups and slaughter each have a story of hope, survival and courage to tell and they are counting on caring and compassionate people like you to share their stories, help keep them safe, and encourage others to say NO to animal cruelty and abuse.

"Together, we are their voice and their voice must be heard," says Katia Louise, director of Saving America's Horses. Katia is also the founder and president of the Wild For Life Foundation, the parent charity of Saving America's Horses, an international consortium of veterinarians, equestrian professionals, equine welfare experts, researchers, horse advocates, scientists, film and television artists, and concerned citizens working in concert to promote wild horse preservation initiatives with a focus on the prevention of equine cruelty and ending the slaughter of America's horses.  Katia  
has dedicated her life's work to the protection of America's horses from horrific cruelty, savage brutality and barbaric genocidal abuse.  Katia is the filmmaker of "Saving America's Horses" the lifesaving  and international award winning documentary movie. Katia and WFLF's dedicated team of volunteer rescuers work tirelessly everyday in the trenches, evacuating cruelty victims to safety, nursing their wounds, providing them nutritious food and tender loving care. But they cannot do this lifesaving work alone. You can make a difference in the individual lives of America's at-risk and victimized equines who desperately need help right now, by pledging your support today.  Please help end the suffering will help to save countless lives by taking part. Stand with us to end equine cruelty.

Cochise is a wild Navajo Mustang who was captured during brutal US government sponsored roundups. He lost his freedom, his native homelands, his family and nearly lost his life to barbaric slaughter. WFLF saved his life and evacuated him to safety where he was reunited with his closest family members. Cochise and his family's recovery continues on a daily basis through the charitable Wild Horse and Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission of the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF), a 501c3 volunteer charity dedicated to saving, protecting and preserving wild and domestic equines.

WFLF's rescue and sanctuary program provides lifesaving aid to at-risk and victimized horses and burros like Cochise and his family that have nowhere else to go. Tax deductible contributions made to WFLF pay for lifesaving transport, vet medical care, nutritious hay and safe and peaceful housing. Donations can be made online, or by mail in any amount, and will help save lives today.

"The ongoing influx of calls for our emergency rescue services means that Wild for Life Foundation is constantly stretched in our ability to effectively respond to crisis," adds Ms Louise.  "Without crucial funding, there have been occasions when we could not save animals in dire need.  Therefore it is with great urgency that we make this plea for your continued support."

Take part by sharing, forwarding, cross-posting and make a difference in the life of a rescue horse or burro today by giving what you can. No gift is too small.  Thank you
