FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sept 4, 2012
Susan Wagner of Equine Advocates joins as Advisory Board Member in SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES, the movie.
Susan Wagner is the President of Equine Advocates, a non-profit equine protection organization. Ms. Wagner began her work with horses by spending fifteen years in the racing industry, followed by five years working for a zoological institution from which she rescued her first horse, a Thoroughbred/Quarter Horse cross, named Gandalf, from slaughter. She founded Equine Advocates three years later, inspired by Gandalf’s rescue and the goal of ending horse slaughter. Equine Advocates has been the recipient of multiple awards for its humane work with horse, including Equine Protection Awards from the New York State Humane Association (1997), the Thoroughbred Charities of America (2004) and a Special Congressional Citation in 2009.
"We are honored to have Susan on the board of advisers for this important film," says Katia Louise, President of the Wild for Life Foundation. "Susan is also a featured cast member in the film and Equine Advocates is a longtime supporter of this documentary."
SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES is an enlightening social experience rich in the history of how we as a society exist and share our world with other species that we respect and rely upon to survive. When we look at how we treat our horses we discover more about ourselves. This film is a brilliant and hard hitting exposé that reveals how the public has been misled by government agencies and corporate interests that run over the laws that are supposed to protect the horses, the public and the environment.
SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES is receiving rave reviews and has won multiple international awards, including Best Environmental Film in Canada and Best Documentary Film in Los Angeles through the film festival circuit. But timing is pivotal for America’s horses; their very survival is at stake and time is running out.
The rush is on to meet 2012 theatrical release and Academy deadlines and SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is in the running, but funds are needed to cross the finish line this year! Support the 2012 Bi Coastal Theatrical Release on Indiegogo. Funds raised will help cover the minimum costs so that this film can get out through a bi coastal theatrical release this year.
SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES is an educational film project under Wild for Life Foundation, a 501 c3 charity dedicated to saving, protecting and preserving equines. Donations to Wild for Life Foundation are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
