ONCE AGAIN FOR THE RECORD- The history of WFLF Monero-Mustang Rescue Mission

FOR THE RECORD-
The history of WFLF Monero-Mustang Rescue Mission -
In early 2014 the Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) received a desperate plea of life and death urgency from the founder of Monero Mustangs, a New Mexico (NM) nonprofit organization (NPO) for emergency rescue assistance. Sadly the MM's entire herd of horses found themselves stranded in deserted feedlots without access to water or hay. Without the resources to house, feed and care for them, the Monero Mustangs (MM), a then failed/defunct NPO, was on the verge of losing its horses’ lives to unspeakable gruesome slaughter.

The WFLF Monero-Mustang Rescue Mission (WFLF MMRM) was launched by the Wild For Life Foundation as crisis intervention to save the MM horses lives and a means for providing emergency aid and helping to facilitate the urgent need for relocation and placement of these at risk horses. As an equine rescue and protection organization, an indisputable RESCUE NEED must be well established and plead by anyone seeking WFLF rescue assistance prior to the acceptance of their equines into WFLF’s program.

WFLF raised funds and utilized these resources to provide vital lifesaving equine rescue services and supplies to  meet the demands of this urgent RESCUE NEED.

In or about April of 2014, WFLF began providing emergency financial aid toward the direct care, feeding, transport and placement of these horses. Over the time it became evident that MM had been breeding their rescue horses and they had approximately 150 horses whose lives were in imminent life threatening danger.  WFLF additionally facilitated the placement of the majority of these horses into new 3rd third party homes.

As documented, MM, the surrendering owner, in fact made an urgent plea in writing to the Wild For Life Foundation to rescue and take in approximately 50 horses whose lives were said to be in imminent danger, and that MM had no other means to save them.

WFLF has paid for ongoing expenses related to the care and custody for the MM surrendered RESCUE NEED horses, which included unadoptable, pregnant and nursing foals, unborn foals, colts, fillies, senior horses, malnourished and injured mares, geldings and stallions, whom began arriving to WFLF facilities in September, 2014.

In or about mid June of 2015, WFLF transferred approximately thirty three of these horses for direct placement into a 3rd party sanctuary in Northern California, and thereafter officially concluded the WFLF MMRM.


Contrary to the rumors which have been made about the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF), in truth WFLF has extended sincere compassion, benevolence and good will toward Monero Mustangs and its founder. Sadly WFLF’s mission to save, protect, preserve and defend America’s at risk wild and domestic equines and WFLF’s successful mission to aid and assist MM’s RESCUED NEED horses have been met with disregard and disrespect by MM and its founder.

Additionally, for the record, WFLF was eventually forced to officially terminate its relationship with MM.

To date, WFLF continues to provide ongoing care and custody for 15 of the MM surrendered RESCUE NEED horses which have at all times remained under the legal ownership, title, care and custody of WFLF since first accepted by WFLF.

Urgent Action Alert for the Mission to Save, Protect and Preserve Wild and Domestic Horses and Burros


Dear friends, colleagues, devoted humanitarians, horse and burro advocates, and loyal animal defenders,
The Wild For Life Foundation and Saving America’s Horses has become aware of malicious activities including the use of the internet to spread vicious and harmful rumors which are undermining our cause, the prevention of animal cruelty and the protection of wildlife and they are specifically targeting our lifesaving mission to save, protect and preserve wild and domestic horses and burros from slaughter, roundups, abuse, neglect and other forms of cruelty.  

These hateful, hostile and violent activities have sadly dishonored America's iconic and majestic horses and have seriously undermined the advancement of this mission by those who support it and by those who selflessly and tirelessly dedicate their lives to carrying out this important mission.  

The Wild For Life Foundation and Saving America’s Horses remains fervently dedicated to our cause to prevent animal cruelty and protect wildlife.  Our grassroots, all volunteer charity is working around the clock to provide quality care for at risk wild and domestic equines and  to save and protect them from slaughter, roundups, abuse, neglect and other forms of cruelty through rescue, sanctuary, education and advocacy. We stand vigilant against those who threaten the safety and welfare of the animals we serve.  We are also taking an active stance in effort to fight against malicious activities that threaten our organization, its mission and the animals we serve, especially wrongful actions promoted by individuals or members of hate groups, and those whom deceptively disguise themselves as good Samaritans, animal lovers and or even false victims.

Please share this message far and wide to show your support and to help us uphold our mission and to fight against these harmful activities that in truth undermine the very lives of the animals we all work so hard to save and protect.
Anonymous reports are welcome.

Thank you.

Ambush and Assault against America’s Rescue Horses

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ambush and Assault against America’s Rescue Horses

BREAKING NEWS

Thursday, January 19, 2017, Riverside, CA – The Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) was unlawfully ambushed by a crowd of approximately 15 - 20 individuals who came to its equine rescue facilities in Riverside on Tuesday, Jan 17th.   Riverside County Sheriff Department dispatched three Sheriff Units in response to WFLF's emergency 911 call for help.

The gang of perpetrators was reportedly led by Mrs. Jackie Autry who had also invited local news reporters. The rights of the Wild For Life Foundation were violated and several crimes were committed by the unruly group of suspects whose intent was to trespass, harass and steal WFLF's rescue horses, and maliciously defame WFLF in the process. In an attempt to justify their ambush, Ms. Autry and several others went on record with numerous false allegations against WFLF while speaking with the authorities and the news.

Upon the Wild For Life Foundation's presentation of the true and accurate facts, together with WFLF’s substantiated documentation, the Sheriffs’ team told the Autry gang to leave the area.

“We are not sure why they are doing all this, but we do know one thing for sure,” stated WFLF President and Founder, Katia Louise. “What they are doing is 100% contrary to the health, safety, welfare and future of the very animals that WFLF serves to protect.”

The Wild For Life Foundation would like to thank the Riverside County Sheriff Department for their protection. “Quite frankly, we had expected a bit more from Ms Autry, by way of honesty and integrity,” added Katia Louise. “We have unfortunately been very disappointed by her. We will not allow these people or anyone else to hurt or threaten our horses, or interfere with our mission to save, protect preserve and defend America’s at risk horses from danger.”  WFLF’s Board of Directors is considering proper legal recourse and estimates that its course of action will demonstrate itself within about a week or so.
