Circle the Wagons to help WFLF Save and Protect America's Rescue Horses and Burros

EMERGENCY CALL TO ACTION:

Jan 31, 201, Riverside, CA - The severe and relentless rains and flooding of these past few weeks in Southern California have put Wild For Life Foundation’s Family of America’s Rescue Horses and Burros in Dire Need of Your Help.

A series of winter storms slammed our equine rescue facilities with torrential rain, flooding, and mud barreling through, washing out internal rescue access ways and leaving our the grounds saturated with ditches over 6' deep and up to 6' wide at the home of the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF), and peaceful harbor rescue and sanctuary for over 75 horses and burros. 

Our all volunteer rescue team members have been digging trenches through mud and debris for days to drain pooling water, from the most recent onslaught of intense sustained, pouring rain, coupled with hail and snow which has left us crippled and in need of urgent disaster relief. 

The washed out roads have made the delivery of hay and feed very difficult. Our facilities have been hit hard with extensive storm damage. Urgent financial support is needed to clean up and get back to regular business.  



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.


The Wild for Life Foundation counts on your care and compassion to help us to protect and be there for our equine family, our needs are immediate —PLEASE give today. Donations can be made online, by mail or by wire transfer.

Mustangs run free after narrowly escaping slaughter

This is a group of Mustang arrivals to Wild For Life Foundation's sanctuary program - WFLF MMRM circa 2014. These Mustangs, including three pregnant mares that had lost their safe and peaceful home in NM when their former owner lost its gratis lease, and had no other means to save them. If not saved through the WFLF, approximately 150 horses, whose lives were in imminent danger, would have shipped to slaughter.

This was their first time to run free after being rescued out of a feedlot and narrowly escaping slaughter. Three healthy baby foals (two fillies and a colt) were born within a couple weeks of their arrival to California at one of WFLF's wild horse sanctuary facilities. They have since grown into healthy happy youngsters.

Some of these Mustangs are featured in Wild For Life Foundation's international award winning documentary film, Saving America's Horses: A Nation Betrayed which was released bi-coastally to theaters in 2012.

Approximately 100 members of the herd were transported out of NM and placed in sanctuary homes in several other states.
The last few remaining herd members were accepted into WFLF's family of rescued wild horses.

The true history of WFLF Monero-Mustang Rescue Mission

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED JAN 30, 2017 (UPDATED AUG 18, 2017)
The history of WFLF Monero-Mustang Rescue Mission -
In early 2014 the Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) received a desperate plea of life and death urgency from the founder of Monero Mustangs, a New Mexico (NM) nonprofit organization (NPO) for emergency rescue assistance. According to MM, their entire herd of horses was stranded in deserted feedlots without access to water or hay. Without the resources to house, feed and care for them, the Monero Mustangs (MM), a self-proclaimed failed/defunct NPO, was on the verge of losing its horses’ lives to unspeakable gruesome slaughter.

The WFLF Monero-Mustang Rescue Mission (WFLF MMRM) was launched by the Wild For Life Foundation as crisis intervention to save the MM horses lives and a means for providing emergency aid and helping to facilitate the urgent need for relocation and placement of these at risk horses. As an equine rescue and protection organization, an indisputable RESCUE NEED must be well established and plead by anyone seeking WFLF rescue assistance prior to the acceptance of their equines into WFLF’s program.

WFLF utilized and expended its own resources to pay for lifesaving rescue services and supplies to carry out this urgent RESCUE MISSION.

In April of 2014, WFLF began providing emergency financial aid toward the direct care, feeding, transport and placement of these horses. WFLF additionally facilitated the placement of the majority of these horses into new 3rd third party homes.

MM, the surrendering owner, made an urgent written plea to the Wild For Life Foundation to rescue and take in approximately 50 horses whose lives were said to be in imminent danger, and that MM had no other means to save them.

WFLF expenses for the direct care and custody of these surrendered horses, which included unadoptable, pregnant and nursing foals, unborn foals, colts, fillies, senior horses, malnourished and injured mares, geldings and stallions, whom began arriving to WFLF facilities in September, 2014, has since exceeded $150,000.

In mid 2015, WFLF officially terminated its relationship with Ms Claypool and MM due to numerous egregious violations to WFLF policies which serve to protect America’s at risk equines from harm.
WFLF also transferred approximately thirty three of these horses for direct placement/ residency into a 3rd party sanctuary in Northern California, and at which time WFLF officially concluded this rescue mission.


The Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF), has extended sincere compassion, benevolence and good will toward Monero Mustangs and its founder. However, WFLF’s successful mission to aid and save these horses has been met with disregard and disrespect by MM and its agents.

WFLF provided ongoing quality care and housing for horses surrendered by MM to WFLF for approximately two and a half years, during which time the subject horses were under the legal ownership, title, care and custody of WFLF.

Urgent Action Alert for the Mission to Save, Protect and Preserve Wild and Domestic Horses and Burros


Dear friends, colleagues, devoted humanitarians, horse and burro advocates, and loyal animal defenders,
The Wild For Life Foundation and Saving America’s Horses has become aware of malicious activities including the use of the internet to spread vicious and harmful rumors which are undermining our cause, the prevention of animal cruelty and the protection of wildlife and they are specifically targeting our lifesaving mission to save, protect and preserve wild and domestic horses and burros from slaughter, roundups, abuse, neglect and other forms of cruelty.  

These hostile and violent activities have sadly dishonored America's iconic and majestic horses and have seriously undermined the advancement of this mission by those who support it and by those who selflessly and tirelessly dedicate their lives to carrying out this important mission.  

The Wild For Life Foundation and Saving America’s Horses remains fervently dedicated to our cause to prevent animal cruelty and protect wildlife.  Our grassroots, all volunteer charity is working around the clock to provide quality care for at risk wild and domestic equines and  to save and protect them from slaughter, roundups, abuse, neglect and other forms of cruelty through rescue, sanctuary, education and advocacy. We stand vigilant against those who threaten the safety and welfare of the animals we serve.  We are also taking an active stance in effort to fight against malicious activities that threaten our organization, its mission and the animals we serve, especially wrongful actions promoted by individuals or members of hate groups, and those whom deceptively disguise themselves as good Samaritans, animal lovers and or even false victims.

Please share this message far and wide to show your support and to help us uphold our mission and to fight against these harmful activities that in truth undermine the very lives of the animals we all work so hard to save and protect.
Anonymous reports are welcome.

Thank you.
The Team at Wild For Life Foundation and Saving America’s Horses

WFLF Hay Donation Drive to Feed Rescued Equines through Spring and Summer 2017

Dearest Friends and Supporters,
It's that time of year again!  We are asking for your help to raise essential funds  to feed rescued equines through spring and summer 2017.  
Financial contributions are crucial to replenish and build Wild For Life Foundation's (WFLF) lifesaving hay fund. Hay is the single most expensive ongoing cost in operating an equine rescue and protection program. 

Continued donations are needed to help keep hay fund reserves intact and in turn provide capacity assurance which enable us to provide lifesaving rescue and protection services for as many equines in need as possible.

Please give generously today to help us keep our hay intact!


WFLF has stepped up during very troubling times and taken responsibility for numerous wild and domestic horses victimized by starvation and displacement over the years. Having vital hay funds is what makes it possible for WFLF to carry on this lifesaving work. Without adequate hay supplies, we would be forced to turn away needy starving horses; horses that would have nowhere else to go. WFLF relies on continued tax deductible donations to save these equines and keep them safe, healthy and protected.

If you can, Please give today.

Make a one time donation in any amount

IF YOU CAN, Pledge to make a monthly donation:

Text GIVE 18272 to 80088 to donate $10 to WFLF Hay Drive

WFLF provides lifesaving hay, urgent care, primary care, rehabilitation and safe 
haven habitats equines who have been victims of cruelty, starvation and displacement. WFLF also works with law enforcement officers who seize abused companion animals, but are often times ill-equipped to deal with horses who are in need of round the clock care.

Every donation is paramount in this vital fundraising goal, whether it’s a $5 or 
$100. It takes all of us to make a difference in the lives of the horses we all share our love for. Please share to help and give what you can.


With Gratitude and Blessings,

The Wild For Life Foundation
