Harmful and UNFOUNDED rumors by a certain party hoping to gain control of the Wild for Life Foundation, its assets and its mission, have directly threatened the very health, welfare and future of the innocent rescue horses and burros this charity so dutifully serves.
On Jan 19, 2017, in response to false reports and rumors made during a hostile breakin and attempted takeover just two days prior, Sgt. Huennekens of the Riverside County Animal Care and Control promptly inspected the horses in the care and custody of Wild for Life Foundation. The falsehoods and malicious rumors were immediately exposed in a report and statement by Sgt Huennekens, "All of the animals are in good weight. The paint horse with the bad knee came to the rescue several years ago in its present condition and is on previcox for any discomfort. The dark bay horse shown, in the photographs was in excellent condition with no signs of any health issues. All of the pens the horses are kept in are in good condition and are of adequate size. The horse with the large hernia was bright, alert, and appeared to be in otherwise good condition. Case closed, Sgt. Huennekens."
“We are not sure why they are doing all this, but we do know one thing for sure,” stated WFLF President and Founder, Katia Louise. “What they are doing is 100% contrary to the safety, wellbeing and future of the very animals that WFLF serves to protect.”
In just nine years, the Wild For Life Foundation has built a solid reputation based on integrity and compassion with its extraordinary work in advocacy and hands-on care for animals in desperate need of help. The successful WFLF rescue and sanctuary program specializes in the lifesaving and rehabilitation of wild and domestic equines and provides a safe home and haven, for animals in need.
As a charity, WFLF relies solely on tax deductible contributions from the public to carry out its mission. Rumors and other malicious acts targeted at animal welfare and rescue groups like WFLF can be extremely damaging to these organizations and their mission to protect and save animals from cruelty.
