$500 Grant Awarded to Improve Fundraising Capacity
So that we can make a bigger difference for more wild and domestic equines in need

Studio City, CA—The Wild For Life Foundation today announced its receipt of grant funding from the ASPCA in support of its equine rescue and sanctuary operations.

Through Wild for Life Foundation's Emergency Equine Rescue and Recovery Mission we save and evacuate equines from life threatening situations and disaster,” said Katia Louise, volunteer Executive Director Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF). "This is the most cost intensive part of our work, and the aspect that often requires fast funding so we can act quickly to provide emergency medical care and rescue services."   “This ASPCA grant funding will enable our organization to benefit from Membership in the Association of Fundraising Professionals
 (AFP) and will greatly benefit our nonprofit equine rescue organization and our lifesaving mission through the valuable educational webinars and the vast array of resources. This ASPCA grant for AFP membership will allow WFLF to enhance our efficiency in raising essential funds so that we can make a bigger difference for more wild and domestic equines in need. We strive to maintain best practices and we really need this professional guidance so we can build a stronger board and increase our fundraising capacity. APF courses will be well utilized by the Wild For Life Foundation as we strive to increase our sustainability and maintain compliance with state regulatory requirements. 
We provide lifesaving medical care, food, shelter and a 2nd chance at life for rescued wild and domestic equines coming in from across the US. We rescue abused, neglected and at risk equines of all breeds, ages and disabilities, and assure their life-long safety, peace and health. Equines accepted into the Wild For Life foundation Rescue, Recovery and Sanctuary Program are assured care and protection for the duration of their natural life span.
