The Heritage of America's Equines - Their Future is Our Future


Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF)'s Equine Rescue and Recovery Program is dedicated benefitting America’s at-risk horses and burros. We provide rescue and crisis intervention for wild and domestic horses and burros without limitation to breed, age, or gender. Incoming horses and burros are accepted into our program and welcomed as members of our Heritage Herd. Incoming equines include abused, neglected, abandoned, starved, malnourished and injured horses, pregnant and nursing mares, orphan foals, geldings and studs. Many of the incoming wild equine had been victimized by roundups, stockpiling in holding facilities and or feed lots and slated for barbaric slaughter.

WFLF’s Heritage Herd is comprised of America’s at-risk horses and burros directly served through WFLF hands-on crisis intervention, rescue, sanctuary and placement services. Heritage Horses and Burros are provided with the protection they need to keep them safe from roundups, slaughter and other forms of cruelty. WFLF pays for their expenses including their housing, feed, vet care, medical supplies, hoof care, transport and so on. Through WFLF’s education and outreach programs we advocate and promote the need to protect and preserve the heritage of America’s horses and burros. Through this program we seek to raise awareness and Sunfiresupport for this majestic native species and their historic living legacy.

WFLF’s Rescue & Crisis Intervention serves the needs of starved, neglected, abused, abandoned and at-risk horses and burros who become stranded and in imminent risk of slaughter. Our work is the essential emergency charitable services and provisions which we provide to these at-risk equines including quality hay, veterinary care, hoof care, medical supplies, transportation and placement which is purchased and disbursed to equines in need by WFLF through funds raised through WFLF’s Lifesaving Mission and our Safe Haven and Sanctuary Programs.

WFLF transports these horses from near death to ultimate freedom from hunger, cruelty, suffering and pain. Transport and placement includes both WFLF’s direct provision of and facilitated relocation of at-risk equines to safe harbor through WFLF’s Safe Haven and Sanctuary Programs.

WFLF’s Safe Haven and Sanctuary Program placement services provide for the intake and acceptance of arriving equines to rescue, recovery, sanctuary and special care unit facilities under WFLF’s program, as well as thefacilitation of placement into safe harbor and new forever homes. WFLF’s Safe Haven and Sanctuary Program is a collaborative network of approved and accredited entities including both privately held and public benefit equine recovery facilities, therapeutic programming, natural habitat environments and rehabilitation programs.

Fundamental to the core of Wild For Life Foundation’s wild horse and burros sanctuary mission is our commitment to assure a peaceful habitat and safe haven environment for each and every wild equine that comes Burrosthrough our doors. Heritage Horses and Burros/ sanctuary residents are provided with the best possible living situations to meet their individual needs. We strive to build and maintain enclosed multi-acre open spaces with areas where nature has provided a natural environment.

Through WFLF's Wild Horse and Burro Rescue and Recovery Program we have rescued, evacuated and facilitated lifesaving services and ongoing care for hundreds of slaughter bound and roundup survivors including dozens of pregnant and nursing wild mustangs, and orphan foals who had lost their freedom, their families and Native range-land homes.

Sanctuary Land Acquisition

One of Wild for Life Foundation's most important goals is to acquire land held in perpetuity for America's horses. Equine sanctuary land acquisition is sought for the provision of lifelong safe harbor and preservation of these majestic animals who are otherwise caught in the constant crossfire of competing commercial land use interests.

Our present need is for the acquisition of equine land in increments of 20-50 acres and more.
