We build connections between people and animals through community enrichment and social engagement. Through education, rescue, sanctuary, the arts and sciences, Wild for Life Foundation informs, inspires, and empowers people to speak and act on behalf of saving, preserving and protecting animals and their significant roles in our world’s ecosystem and history; for the greater good and a better world now and for generations to come.

We are an all volunteer charity including staff, CEO, Board of Directors, Advisory Board and Honorary Board Members whose contributions of time and talent are all donated. We save lives and break the cycle of animal cruelty for at risk equines by providing for their vital ongoing stewardship and facilitating appropriate transition to new forever homes. Founded in 2008, WFLF has served a steady stream of rescue horses since that time. In 2013 WFLF's rescue program experienced a very positive 172% increase of equines saved since 2012.

     Wild for Life Foundation’s educational film project, "SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES: A NATION BETRAYED" is an inspirational social action tool for promoting wild horse conservation and preservation initiatives, strengthening natural partnerships between people and horses, and supporting the prevention of equine cruelty. It's a powerful feature documentary film with a deeply passionate look into the world of both wild and domestic horses; their connection to our history and the future of humanity.

Seventeen Native Navajo wild horses, ages 2-5 years old need Immediate Transport to Safety

Feel free to forward this email to your contacts in the equestrian community!


Seventeen Native Navajo wild horses, ages 6 months -5 years old, were captured in November from the open rangelands of New Mexico narrowly escaping slaughter during the U.S. government funded roundups, sponsored with American tax dollars, and under the misguidance of the BLM and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).  The horses are temporarily safe thanks local rescue team members of the Navajo Horses Rescue and Recovery Mission, but time is of the essence to get them to safety. These horses need immediate transport out of New Mexico to safe harbor.

They were picked up “as strays” during the recent roundups, just outside the reservation. Despite their obvious healthy appearance, they were claimed to be “starving due to a lack of forage on the reservation”.

To learn more read the below links…
The first link is an overview and the second link a detailed explanation with the latest events listed at the bottom of the article.  This is a hot-button issue and Saving America's Horses and Wild for Life Foundation are doing their utmost to intervene on behalf of the horses through legal and other ethical means.
