WFLF Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission


WFLF Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission

In 2015, the Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) issued an Emergency Rescue Resolution to help save and preserve California’s at-Lifesaving Missionrisk Wild Burros. Wild burros are being rounded up and removed by from their native homelands in Highgrove, CA by County Officials to prevent them from being hit by cars and trains. The burros have been drawn to the busy streets where well-meaning residents and drivers have flocked to feed and water them. It’s been reported that number of burros in the area have already been struck and killed by cars. More than two dozen wild burros have recently been rounded up and impounded by the local County animal shelter. Another 10-20 wild burros will soon face the same fate.

Rescue team members of Wild for Life Foundation’s (WFLF) Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission work behind the scenes in effort to provide lifesaving rescue services and safe harbor for wild burros in need. "We are dealing with a crisis situation," says Katia Louise. "It's a tragedy. Drivers travel at freeway speeds through the area, it’s dangerous for everyone and burros are dying." Riverside County Animal Services (RCDAS) has defined the situation as an urgent matter.

Charity missions like the ‘WFLF Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission’ help raise awareness and essential funds to aid at-risk wild burros that need urgent care and safe harbor after losing their freedom, their homes and their families during roundups.

Lifesaving Mission

“We are dedicated to saving, protecting and preserving wild and domestic equines through rescue, sanctuary and education,” said Katia Louise. “ Fundamental to the core of WFLF’s equine rescue and sanctuary program is our commitment to assure a forever safe harbor for each and every animal that comes through our doors.”

Wild burros are losing their once protected native homes on America’s public lands. As the remaining number of Wild Horses and Burros in the U.S. nears extinction, education and appreciation through the protection and observation of Wild Burros Horses in natural sanctuary environments becomes tantamount to their survival as a species. America’s Wild Equids cannot be reproduced once they are gone.

WFLF’s Wild Horse and Burro Conservation Mission strives to preserve and protect the lives of rare and historic wild equines as part of the natural ecosystem and educate people about the need for the preservation of this threatened native species. Additionally, through this Mission, rescued wild equines are given an opportunity to heal and thrive under WFLF’s sanctuary program.Lifesaving Mission
