Saving the Lives of Horses whose Healing Hearts Enhance the Lives of People
Founded in 2008, the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF), a U.S. Registered Nonprofit Charity, Federal ID No. 26-3052458, has been at the forefront of efforts to rescue and provide safe harbor for at risk animals, providing the space, natural habitat and quality of care which they deserve. The WFLF’ aim is to provide charitable equine assisted learning activities together with equine-therapy programs to aid youth and adults in building positive life skills. The WFLF is internationally recognized as a leader in animal welfare -- among our greatest concerns are imperiled wild horses and burros, abused, neglected and slaughter bound wild and domestic equines, and inadequate standards of protection for America’s equine population as a whole. The WFLF promotes the conservation of wild horses on their Native lands, as well as the the preservation of natural ecosystems, wildlife and the prevention of cruelty to animals. We strive to preserve and celebrate Native heritage and cultures through embracing harmonious relationships among people, animals and nature. The WFLF is achieving these goals through operating equine rescue, sanctuary, education and wellness programs which provide community enrichment through fostering symbiotic environmental stewardship and a healing partnership with horses.
We aim to integrate culture and the arts with humane values to elevate conscience, inspire compassion and reduce the suffering of animals.
We are dedicated to saving, protecting and preserving equines through education, sanctuary and rescue. We work to ensure the preservation of wild equines and the humane treatment, care and well-being of all equines. WFLF and its wild horse preservation initiative serves as an educational platform for the protection of wildlife through the provision of long term sanctuary of wild horses and burros removed from America's rangelands.
WFLF strives to inform, inspire, and empower the public for the greater good in saving, preserving and protecting wild and domestic equines and their significant roles in our world’s society, ecosystem and history; for 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.
