CRISIS INTERVENTION: WFLF provides emergency aid and crisis intervention for wild and domestic horses and burros who become displaced and in life threatening danger. The expenses paid by WFLF crisis intervention may include costs for hay, medical care, transport, placement, primary care and animal housing.

WFLF Support for ISPMB crisis

In October 2016 the Wild for Life Foundation/ Saving America's Horses teamed up with Fleet of Angels to to help make the rescue and placement of over 900 slaughter bound Mustangs, including blind wild horses, senior wild horses and numerous malnourished pregnant & nursing and mares and foals, a huge success. WFLF's Saving America's Horses program raised awareness and support for emergency ISPMB adoptions, and our multimedia and Tee shirt campaigns raised funds which purchased quality hay to feed the horses caught in the ISPMB crisis.

Over 900 ISPMB Mustangs and Burros were seized by authorities due to a court order. Emergency adoptions continue to date (Sept 2017) and have been underway across the country for nearly a year.

In 2013 WFLF expanded it safe haven network of accredited recovery facilities to enable acceptance of several groups of wild and domestic equines, including orphan foals, numerous pregnant and nursing mares, nursing foals, and special needs horses (e.g. starvation victims, injured and abused equines).



Our work first centers on restoring these innocent victims to good physical health as we begin the journey of nurturing and renewing their spirits, their hope and their trust in humans.

Through CRISIS INTERVENTION we aid, save and evacuate equines found in life threatening and disastrous situations. We also partner with community members and work in conjunction with law enforcement and animal services to facilitate and provide for the rescue and placement of animals in life threatening danger and those seized in animal cruelty cases.

This is the most cost intensive part of our work, and the aspect that often requires fast funding so we can act quickly to provide emergency medical care and rescue services. Through collaboration, legal assistance and negotiation when necessary, we get animals removed from abusive and life threatening situations. Animals rescued from severe abuse and neglect oftentimes have severe health challenges, frequently related to starvation, dehydration, and physical abuse. The first priority is major medical care, medicine as needed and good nutrition.

Safe Haven Network – is a division of our foster and adoption program which enables the provision of temporary placement for equines who may need short term health and behavior monitoring. Our caring foster care providers also assist in the process of long term placement in new loving homes. Compassionate foster care placement also helps with our Second Chance program to help prevent the killing of healthy adoptable equines in overcrowded county shelters.
