About Radar:
Radar is a little baby boy burro whose mommy was living wild in the rural foothills of Southern California together with her family of wild burros. Urban development is now infringing on their homeland and their way of life has changed. Radar's mommy and several of her family members were recently captured by local authorities to help protect them from getting hit by cars. Wild For Life Foundation recently accepted 9 of these burros into its rescue and sanctuary program. Six of the incoming burros were pregnant when they were captured. Radar is one of the little babies who life was saved through Wild For Life Foundation's Wild Burro Rescue and Recovery Mission.

Worldwide Release of ‘Saving America’s Horses’ Renews Hope for Mainstream Action

BREAKING NEWS


Awe Inspiring Landmark Premiere Spotlights Urgent Global Environmental and Humanitarian Crisis

August 12, 2016, Studio City, CA – WFLF Humanion Films today announced the release of its featurette documentary film Saving America's Horses. The powerful film contrasts shots of noble, beautiful, galloping animals with well-researched, shocking statistics and brings to screen a searing indictment of special interests and governmental agencies involved in the predatory exploits of America's horses. Viewers will be able to watch the film through Vimeo On-Demand in HD or SD on their TVs, phones, computers and tablets. 

Audiences worldwide can now watch the SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES’ featurette online and share the film with their friends!  The rental of the SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES featurette includes 24 hour streaming access for just $5 through Vimeo which can also be enjoyed through iOS, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast.


SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a powerful podium with a dynamic reach to humanitarians and animal lovers worldwide. This intelligent exposé also reveals how the public has been misled by several government agencies and corporate interests that run over the laws that are supposed to protect the horses, people and the environment.  "Saving America’s Horses helps spotlight what is becoming an urgent global humanitarian crisis – the pollution of fresh water. The RBC Blue Water Project is our commitment to protecting the lifeblood of this planet that we all need to share." — Jeff Boyd, Regional President, Ontario North and East, RBC Royal Bank

"It is the time we live in now; the moment of truth... it is time to come together and acknowledge what we are doing to ourselves" - Daniel Ramos, tribal spiritual leader.  Film North's theme; One Word, One World; Environment became the perfect conduit for “Saving America’s Horses” environmental message. Winner of Best Environmental Film in Canada, this intelligent and powerful film explores the destruction of life on our planet by looking at the pollution of fresh water, the degradation of open range lands and how we treat the animals that we share our world with; such as the horse.

“Unpacks a multi-layered conspiracy — fueled by a parade of misinformation— against the survival and proliferation of horses.”
— Gary Goldstein LA TIMES

The SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES featurette brings to screen brand new scenes and footage, plus updated statistics from the all new digitally re-mastered full length documentary film, SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES: A NATION BETRAYED now slated for release through educational venues including universities, schools and libraries and onto television/ cable and DVD. The original SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES documentary won numerous awards on the international festival circuit and was then successfully released to theaters in LA and NYC in December of 2012.  The feature length film also qualified for Oscar consideration which brought the issues impacting America's horses into the mainstream. 

Bringing together a wide spectrum of hard-hitting, sometimes opposing viewpoints the film lays down evidence for the Full Monty of objectionable behavior, including neglect, cruelty, deception, and profiteering. The victims run the gamut, from those who eat the meat filled with carcinogenic and other harmful drugs, to the horses themselves, wild horses poached from government land, Thoroughbred race horses who pass through the system to oblivion, domestic horses who outlive their welcome and are sent to slaughter. SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is a compelling, provocative and a rallying cry for justice and integrity.


“An intelligent, powerful film, “SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES” is like a scorched earth weapon aimed at incinerating the lies and ending horse slaughter with laser sharp truth--Agent Orange to the lying, ignorant malevolence and greed that continue to exact a terribly cruel toll on horses and people. Please support this film,” says Paula Bacon, former mayor, Kaufman, TX.  "Saving America's Horses is Fantastic! Powerful and compelling” — Greg MacGillivary, MacGillivary Freeman Films (IMAX)

Critic reviews for the feature length version of this film describe it as "A provocative rallying cry for justice and integrity" - THE QUAD CINEMA, NYC "Outstanding" - LA SPLASH MAGAZINE "Impassioned" - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER "Shocking statistics… "A searing indictment" -VARIETY "Filled with facts" - NY TIMES “A broad and balanced spectrum of opinion through interviews with veterinarians, trainers, policymakers and celebrity horsemen including Paul Sorvino and Willie Nelson, among others” - ABOUT.COM

The issues impacting America’s horses have raised international concern for the welfare of the horses, the people and the environment. Many of the nation's foremost experts and leaders in the movement have united together to have their voices heard through SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES.  With over 88,000,000 people that attend horse-related events in the USA each year, America’s interest in what’s happening to them has never been greater.


“America's horses are disappearing and along with them goes a part of us, says filmmaker, Katia Louise.  “We can't bring back those we've lost, but we have the power to make a difference for generations to come.” In an effort to save, protect and preserve wild and domestic equines, as opposed to the promotion of horse slaughter and widespread roundups throughout the American West, Saving America’s Horses’ Director, Katia Louise is calling on members of the public who care about the horses and the environment to join in a united stance for the horses with Saving America’s Horses by going to www.savingamericashorses.org and clicking on the join button, which will continue to raise awareness and provide ongoing education on this critical issue.

The Wild For Life Foundation is thrilled about the success of SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES, and to make a real difference, philanthropic sponsorships, grants and other sources of funding are being sought to put the powerful full length feature film out into the mainstream. Proceeds from the rental of the Saving America’s Horses featurette benefit the Wild For Life Foundation charity and its Saving America’s Horses program.

Welcoming our newest arrival to WFLF's Wild Burro Rescue and Sanctuary


Wild For Life Foundation is pleased to announce its newest arrival! A new born baby wild burro saved! His mom was pregnant when she was captured from the wild. 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.

"We extend our most sincere gratitude to our devoted supporters for helping us to save these precious lives," said Katia Louise of the Wild For Life Foundation. 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."
The WFLF Wild Burro Rescue and Sanctuary Mission is dedicated to saving and preserving America's wild burros and assuring their protection from roundups and slaughter through rescue, sanctuary and education. WFLF is dedicated to saving and preserving America's wild burros and assuring their protection from roundups and slaughter.
