Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) urgently needs to find an alternate location for its rescue wild and domestic rescue horses and burros
The wildfires have placed a severe strain on local animal charities like WFLF, at a time when resources for rescue animals are already tapped.
Now in our 10th year of operation, the Wild For Life Foundation has long leased equine properties in Southern California’s rural communities to serve and house at-risk horses from California and from across the country.
Our nonprofit and refuge was recently told to move our rescue animals and now the time is upon us. Unfortunately, a property owner in where we currently house over 40 rescued wild and domestic horses and burros in S. Cal., has recently begun to repurpose the land to serve commercial chicken producers. These and factors have placed undue hardships on our charity leaving us with nowhere to relocate with our rescued horses.
Suddenly we’re at ground zero. Even locations that might normally be available to us have not been an option because of the Southern California wildfires. Everyone we know has their hands’ full housing homeless wildfire victims whose barns and farms have burned to the ground.
Competing demands for pasture space by commercial livestock interests and the need to turn a profit by agricultural Lessor’s make it extremely difficult for a small but effective charity on a tight budget like WFLF to carry out our life saving mission without having property of our own.
The Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) has stepped up on numerous occasions over the years to successfully save the lives of 100's of horses and burros from across the country. Ironically, now WFLF horses now need special help.
These horses have already been through so much. Please help if you can so that WFLF is able to relocate as needed and provide the continuum of quality care and protection these special equine deserve.
