Legal Protection Fund to Defend America's Equine Cruelty Victims

Funding sought for legal aid and protection for equine cruelty victims. Wild For Life Foundation calls on private and philanthropic community to join the effort.

Feb 19, 2017, Riverside, CA - Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) today announced the creation of a Legal Protection and Defense Fund to assure legal relief and protection for the innocent animals served through WFLF's mission.


This legal fund speaks to WFLF's ongoing commitment to protect America’s equine community and uphold the values that our country was built on; horses have played an important role in shaping our Nation and as an indigenous/ native species, wild horses indeed compliment the natural environment of North America. 

“WFLF has a proud history of integrity, best practices and compassion, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that horses and burros as served through our mission are safe, secure and supported. We have created a legal protection fund,” said founder, Katia Louise. “And your donation to WFLF’s Legal Protection Fund, as generous as you’re able, will help assure legal relief and protection for the innocent animals served by WFLF while we keep our focus and efforts on the continuum of care and ongoing lifesaving protective work for animals that WFLF and its Saving America's Horses program conducts every day of the year.."

“The establishment of the legal protection fund is yet another reaffirmation of WFLF’s strong stance opposing threats and acts of harm against America’s horses and burros,” said Vice President, Jay Coskie.

“Horses and burros are intelligent, sentient and social beings. Access to legal protection can have lifesaving impact for these animals and their families. Legal protection ensures that animals in our communities will be safe from harassment, and cruelty, and can truly live their lives in safety, security, and peace.


This announcement is the latest in a series of actions the WFLF charity has taken to model and inspire solidarity amongst fellow humanitarians and horse welfare advocates who are devoted to protecting, saving, preserving and defending horses and burros from harm, harassment and cruelty.

Since founding, the WFLF and its Saving America’s Horses Initiative have launched and provided compelling and powerful programs benefitting the community and the movement to protect America's horses and burros, including a series of powerful educational platforms, successful rescue missions, outreach and advocacy programs and initiatives. These WFLF programs have saved and protected hundreds of at risk American horses and burros from starvation, abuse, neglect, abandonment, roundups and slaughter.  These programs and initiatives include Saving America’s Horses, the renowned Navajo Horses Rescue and Recovery Mission, Hope for Horses, Tees for Horses, WFLF’s Mustang Rescue Missions, and the international Saving America’s Horses Coalition.

Tax deductible contributions will help enable WFLF to keep its focus on its Saving America's Horses lifesaving protective work for animals that WFLF conducts every day of the year.

Complaint Filed in Response to Defamation, Harassment and Breach of Contract

February 6, 2017, Riverside, CA - Wild For Life Foundation (or WFLF) is a non-profit, animal protection and rescue organization that focuses primarily on saving, protecting, preserving and defending wild and domestic horses and burros from roundups, slaughter and general abuse.

Recently however, the Wild for Life Foundation and its mission have become targeted by a rumor campaign which WFLF believes threatens the very health, welfare and future of the innocent rescue horses and burros this charity so dutifully serves under its mission.

Unfortunately, all WFLF's good faith efforts to resolve these issues without resorting to court proved futile.  As such, earlier in 2017, Wild For Life Foundation sought judicial relief through a defamation complaint with other causes of action including Trespass and Harassment, Breach of Contract, and Interference with Economic Advantage. (Case No.: MCC1700082, Riverside Superior Court.)

Appalling rumor campaign exposed

UPDATE: FEB 4, 2017

On Jan 19, 2017, in response to "anonymous reports" made to authoritiesSgt. Huennekens of the Riverside County Animal Care and Control promptly inspected the equines in the care and custody of Wild for Life Foundation. The falsehoods about the animals 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. 


The Wild For Life Foundation (or WFLF) is a non-profit, animal protection and rescue organization that focuses primarily on the rescue and rehabilitation of wild and domestic horses and burros from roundups, slaughter and general abuse.  WFLF is a federally registered grassroots volunteer based nonprofit charity established for the prevention of cruelty to animals with a focus on animal welfare and the protection of wildlife. We vigorously work to save, protect and preserve abused, neglected, displaced and slaughter bound wild and domestic equines, and educate to raise compassion and improve the standards of protection for America’s equine populations as a whole.
