WFLF Production Update & News
March 8, 2010

We are excited to announce that we are wrapping up the filming and finishing up the last few interviews for SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES A NATION BETRAYED. The feature length documentary film is coming along very nice. We are about ¾ of the way through editing what we have filmed to date.

The horse slaughter issue is heating up and the proponents have been very aggressive in their misleading promotion of this insidious cruelty. The general public must be exposed to learn the truth and never before has there been a need so strong for people to come together for total ban of horse slaughter in the US.

We have been working around the clock in the trenches and on the front lines as we investigate and document this issue. WFLF Humanion Films’ Advisory Board, Honorary Board and Cast for SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES A NATION BETRAYED is comprised of the Nation’s top anti slaughter equine experts and specialists. This film project is a very special collaborative effort which will bring this controversial matter to the public eye.

We rely on the generous donations made by our supporters. We need your help to raise the needed funds for completion as we come into the final phase of production. Your support is greatly appreciated.

WFLF Humanion Films is a program under Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF), a tax exempt 501 (c) 3 volunteer-based nonprofit corporation. Donations can be made directly to “Wild for Life Foundation” and are fully tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Come Stand With Us!
Our United Stance Against Horse Slaughter
We believe that…

• Horse slaughter is NOT humane and cannot be made humane
• Horse slaughter does NOT stop; has nothing to do with Abuse, Neglect or Abandonment of equines
• Americans do NOT support human consumption of horsemeat
• A Federal Law permanently banning horse slaughter in the US is necessary
• A Fed Law permanently banning the transport of Equines for slaughter is necessary
• Wild horses and burros belong free on the range
• A moratorium on all BLM round ups is necessary
• Horses may become homeless, but No horse is “unwanted”
• Horse owners should have the right to humanely euthanize their equine
• Equine owners and breeders must take responsibility for the life of each equine in their charge

We invite you and your friends to join SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES’ United Stance Against Horse Slaughter. Come Stand With Us! (Click here to learn how)

Healthy vibrant horses are disappearing. Every day, thousands of horses are being shipped across state and federal borders to later face gruesome slaughter in Mexico and Canada. The BLM is rounding up thousands of wild horses from across the west, never to be seen again.  The mission of his CAUSE driven feature documentary film is to protect all equines from slaughter, both domestic and wild. SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a compelling compilation of expert testimony and true life stories. It takes a tender yet honest look at the reality that American horses are born into, and the love, joy and respect they give us. Through following the life stories of these proud and majestic American horses this film explores the untold truth about what should be “the quiet retirement of Thoroughbreds”, “the freedom of wild horses and burros” and “the peaceful demise of once loved horses”. Featuring Paul Sorvino, Tippi Hedren, Michael Blake, Linda Gray, Ginger Kathrens, Nicholas Dodman, Paula Bacon, Nick Zito, Craig Downer, Brad Woodard and many others!
