Goals, Vision, Mission and Core Values


The Wild for Life Foundation strives to provide engaging programs built on healing and trust that connect people, animals and nature.


Wild for Life Foundation’s vision is for the people of the world to nurture, preserve and promote a compassionate human-animal bond by giving back to the animals and the environment which all life depends. Through the Wild for Life Foundation’s diverse educational and wellness activities we seek to build compassion and positive life skills to foster symbiotic environmental stewardship through a healing partnership with animals.


We take action to support the prevention of cruelty to animals with a focus on animal welfare and the protection of wildlife. 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.


Our mission is to save, protect and preserve abused, neglected, displaced and slaughter bound wild and domestic equines, and educate to raise compassion and improve the standards of protection for America’s equine populations as a whole. We are dedicated to reducing animal suffering in the world, educating the public about animal cruelty and advocating compassionate humane behavior and the protection of animals from cruelty.

Core Values:

We believe that all animals — rare or common, regardless of species — are deserving of our care, attention, and respect. Wild For Life foundation’s Core values are the principles and standards at the very center of our purpose and we vow to not budge or stray from them. It is our honor to exercise great care and skill in carrying out our duties and uphold our values with loyalty and integrity.


We carry out our mission through the services we provide to animals in need. The funding received in support of our mission enables us to provide these services and meet the needs of the animals we serve.

Fund Raising Objectives

Land Acquisition: The funding goal for WFLF's current sanctuary land acquisition project is $750,000. Contributed funds will pay to purchase and fully deed an adequate equine sanctuary site to our registered charity to serve rescue need animals in perpetuity.

Structural Improvements: $500,000 will pay to help equip the sanctuary site with needed perimeter security fencing and supplemental cross fencing to enable the utmost safe handling and management of wild and domestic animals at the Center. Existing enclosures will be fortified and equipped with shelter structures to provide adequate protection from precipitation and extreme weather conditions. Structural additions may also include exercise areas, expanded natural habitats, arenas, quarantine facilities, animal wellness facilities, grazing pastures, modular structures and pre-fab buildings such as staff housing and visitor buildings.

Sustainment and Capacity Building: the funding objective for the next five year period is $1,975,000, which will pay to fully meet essential operating costs in support of sustaining operations and capacity building over a five year period.

Sustainment and capacity building funds ensure WFLF's ability to fully operate in a manner which can meet and sustain its positive and continuing increase in program growth over the next five years; pay for the most vital operating costs including the ongoing purchase of nutritious hay/grains, veterinary care, transport, equine care providers, property taxes, insurance, utilities and maintenance; pay to hire key personnel who will further develop and implement the expansion of therapeutic, educational, and equine assisted wellness programming. Funding will pay for additionally needed staff to manage and care for rescue equines, including feeding, watering, grooming, and removal of manure from stalls and corral areas; pay to hire expert horse trainers to resolve equine behavioral issues essential to safety and welfare needs, and the provision of special training for equines in assisted learning and therapeutic programming; and, will pay for the vital transport of equines in need of lifesaving rescue, medical care, and the transport to safety from disaster and life threatening situations.
