VICTORY in Arizona

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

GREAT news: yesterday we learned that the Governor of Arizona signed an agreement to save the famed Salt River Wild Horses. Two years ago, these horses were almost removed from the Tonto National Forest and sent to auction. Now they are protected under state law from roundups, harassment, and slaughter.

We’re proud to have worked with the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group to achieve this victory. It’s just another example of our vital work – and none of it would be possible without support from people like you. Watch our Year in Review video now – and then pitch in before midnight tomorrow to stand up for wild horses and burros.

Thanks,

AWHC Team

We’ve done a lot this year, and we couldn’t have achieved any of it without you. Watch our 2017 Year In Review video to see all the victories you’ve won for wild horses and burros.

Tens of thousands of lives on the line

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The slaughter lobby has launched an all-out assault on wild horses and burros. They are desperate to destroy our progress and strip away the rights of wild horses and burros once and for all. Worse, they’re willing to sink to almost any level to do it.

Here’s the good news – we held the line in 2017, and if we can hold it against these attacks in the New Year, we will win. But we need the resources to keep up the fight, and what happens in early 2018 will determine whether tens of thousands of these innocent animals live or die. There are only a few days left in 2017 – can you make a tax-deductible donation right now to help save wild horses and burros?

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

THOUSANDS OF LIVES ARE AT STAKE: Please donate to save wild horses and burros today.

For all the talk about legislative strategy, campaign tactics, and fundraising goals, here’s the sad truth:

Thousands of wild horses like this young mustang in Nevada languish in government holding pens. Their freedom stolen. Their families separated. Their sadness evident in their eyes.

The stakes of our campaign have never been higher. If we don’t succeed:

1) Thousands of wild horses like this will be killed in cold blood. It’s what our opponents want… they’re not even hiding it.
2) More and more wild horses like this will be rounded up, robbed of their freedom. They’ll end up confined in feedlot pens like this – or worse.

We need your help now more than ever. With just days left in 2017, can you make a critical tax-deductible gift now?

Every dollar you give us is used carefully and thoughtfully to prevent the slaughter of wild horses – and work to reform BLM’s failing system of roundups and stockpiling of horses in holding facilities.

Here’s what your donations will fund:

  • We are working day-and-night to ensure that Congress rejects the BLM’s request to start slaughtering America’s wild horses. Our efforts helped to preserve protections in the U.S. Senate’s Interior spending bill, but now our fight continues into the New Year as the Senate bill gets reconciled with the House pro-killing measures.
  • We are working to expand humane birth control programs using the PZP vaccine. We’re leading the way and showing how to manage wild horses without cruel roundups that destroy family bands and lead to horses losing their freedom in overcrowded holding pens.
  • We are monitoring roundups to stop cruelty and expose the BLM’s wasteful and inhumane practices. We’re shining a light on this hidden tragedy, and educating the American public about what can be done to stop it.
  • We are fighting in federal court to build a future of freedom for wild horses and burros.

All of this work takes resources. We’re as thrifty as we can be with your money, but it is vitally important that we’re able to continue this important work in 2018. It may be our most critical year yet.

Please consider a tax-deductible gift now. There has never been a more important time to give.

Thank you for everything. And I hope you have a joyous holiday season.

In Freedom,

WE DID IT – 7 MORE LIVES SAVED! MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM CHILLY PEPPER!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

MERRY CHRISTMAS from Chilly Pepper.

We did it, we saved the 7 (2 minis and 5 ponies) from slaughter. This took awhile, but all came home safely. Great news is that two of them have already been adopted.

This group was by far our most expensive, but we had to save them. THANK YOU EVERYONE who stepped up to make it happen. The “tiny’s” would have been slaughtered for dog food or their hides. So they say THANK YOU!

At this point we have 23 horses on the property. Four of the older ones have special feed requirements . One of the 20 year olds need his teeth floated as he looks like he is starving :( But he will get those fixed soon and he is on special feed and doing well so far. We need to get a couple stallions gelded so they can be adopted. There are 9 total up for adoption. Most of our permanent residents have either health issues or are special needs for a variety of other reasons.

There’s one thing standing between our opponents getting their way and ushering in a new policy to slaughter America’s wild horses: you.

This was our organization’s most challenging year ever. But, thanks to you, we overwhelmingly succeeded.

From legal and Senate wins, to education and advocacy milestones, to holding BLM accountable for its inhumane roundups, we’ve been fighting back against all the dangers wild horses and burros face. Our opponents may have the power and money. But we’ve always had the people on our side.                                                        

Here are just a few of our 2017 successes:

  • Convinced Senate to stand against slaughter. We fought the Interior Department’s request to slaughter nearly 100,00 of America’s wild horses with everything we had. Together, we led a massive grassroots, advocacy, and paid media campaign. It paid off in November when the Senate maintained prohibitions on killing and slaughter. The fight’s not over, but the Senate’s position is a major victory for our side.
  • Litigated to stop destruction of wild herds and removal of habitat. We scored major victories in federal court that stopped the BLM from destroying an entire wild horse population in Idaho by sterilizing every member of the herd, and from turning over wild horse habitat in California to private livestock interests.
  • Vaccinated more mares with birth control than the BLM did. Our volunteer team on Nevada’s Virginia Range darted more horses with humane birth control this year than the entire BLM did in 2016!
  • Mobilized 300,000 citizens. We delivered over 300,000 signatures to key Congressional offices in Reno, Phoenix and Las Vegas and to a National BLM Advisory Board meeting in Colorado, urging support for humane management methods for wild horses and burros.
  • Educated the public about federal cruelty to wild horses & burros. We showed the world what our government is doing to our mustangs in the remote areas of the West where wild horses live. Our high quality video footage of BLM helicopter roundups was seen by millions on social media, raising significant public awareness about our government’s inhumane treatment of wild horses and burros.

That’s only a small glimpse of the work we’ve done. I am so proud of our excellent team and the hard work they put in this year. But most of all, I am so very grateful for you: your dedication, your support, and your actions. You are the backbone of what we do.

From all of us here, and on behalf of the magnificent wild horses and burros we are fighting so hard to save, thank you.

Sincerely,
Suzanne Roy

We can’t thank you enough

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Yesterday went better than we ever could have hoped.

Across the country, supporters like you stepped up on Giving Tuesday in a huge way. We blew through our initial $25,000 goal, and got almost 1,000 individual donations. And because of our matching gift, all of those gifts will go twice as far.

We can’t thank you enough for your support — and it couldn’t come at a more crucial time. Your donations will fuel these critical programs to save wild horses and burros:

Litigation: Right now, our legal team is defending wild horses in two federal appellate court cases. We’re fighting to uphold our lower court victories against a rancher lawsuit seeking roundup and slaughter of Utah wild horses and the BLM’s attempts to destroy the Saylor Creek wild horse population in Idaho bysurgically sterilizing every stallion and mare living there. 

On the ground: As you read this, the AWHC team is in the field to document a BLM helicopter roundup underway today in Utah. We’re showing the world what’s happening to our wild horses and burros in these remote regions of the West, and we’re generating the public support necessary to stop our government’s cruel treatment of these national icons.

Advocacy: Our wild horses deserve the best possible representation in the halls of Washington, and that’s just what our bipartisan legislation team is doing — making sure that policies affecting wild horses are evidence-based, humane, and strictly enforced.

We can’t do this work without you. Thank you again for your support this Giving Tuesday and every day.

Sincerely,

Suzanne & the AWHC Team

PS. Didn’t get a chance to give yesterday? You can still chip in today to defend wild horses.

Giving Tuesday Update: emergency matching fund

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

— Thanks to a huge outpouring of support, we’ve hit our $25,000 Giving Tuesdaygoal. Now, a major donor has agreed to provide an EMERGENCY match of $10,000 more — if we can reach that goal before midnight.

Can you pitch in right now to help us raise $10,000 and unlock this emergency matching gift to fuel our work for wild horses and burros across the country?

Thanks,

Suzanne


 

Today is Giving Tuesday, and right now our team is on the ground in Utah to document an abusive government roundup. Starting tomorrow, helicopters will hunt down and trap wild horses, robbing them of the two things they value most: family and freedom. Worse, the lives of every one of these proud mustangs is in danger, thanks to a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) plan to kill and sell for slaughter tens of thousands of wild horses and burros in holding facilities and on the range.

A generous AWHC donor has agreed to match all contributions up to our Giving Tuesday goal of $25,000. That means you can double your money by making a contribution by midnight tonight!

At AWHC, we’re working nonstop to keep wild horses and burros free and safe and to defeat attempts by the BLM to slaughter them.

Last week, we achieved a major victory in that battle when the Senate rejected BLM’s lethal plans. But earlier this year, the House passed a spending bill that would allow BLM to kill tens of thousands of healthy wild horses and burros. That means the fight goes on as Congress negotiates to reconcile the two versions of the bill.

We need your help to carry this battle over the finish line. Make your first gift of the year go twice as far and help us unlock this $25,000 matching gift. Give a tax-deductible gift of just $10 or more before midnight and DOUBLE your impact.

In honor of Trey, the tiny pinto foal who was roped, hogtied, captured and separated from his mother at last year’s BLM roundup in the Cedar Mountains … and in honor of all the foals being captured right now in Utah, never again to feel the security of family or the freedom of the open range… please make your Giving Tuesday gift today.

Together, we can build a better future for our magnificent wild horses and burros. Thank you.

Baby horse hogtied, separated from mother by BLM

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Giving Tuesday match: Give a gift of just $10 or more to protect wild horses by midnight on Tuesday and your donation will be DOUBLED.

Separated from his mother. Hog-tied. Penned. This just a glimpse of what happened to to Trey, a 2-month-old foal, during a horrific Bureau of Land Management roundup of wild horses in Utah. Fortunately, Trey made it out — but not all horses are so lucky.

These kinds of roundups occur routinely on our public lands. Wild horses are being harassed, abused, and even killed. But we’re making a difference: by documenting BLM activity, by saving individual horses, by advocating for humane policies like fertility control, and by fighting to stop the BLM’s plan to slaughter these innocent and iconic animals.

BREAKING: Senate protects wild horses (but fight’s not over)

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Our team just got word after months of campaigning: the Senate has maintained protections for wild horses and burros in its version of the Interior Appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2018.

Even better, the Senate directed the BLM to come up with “humane and politically viable” solutions to wild horse management. Clearly, our Senators realize that killing our cherished mustangs or selling them for slaughter is neither humane nor politically tenable. 

This is a huge win! Your phone calls, emails, donations, protests, and petitions paid off. You were heard. Our strength was shown. Thank you.

But the fight isn’t over. Here’s what’s next: the Senate (which included protections) must now negotiate with the House (which didn’t). This “conference” will determine the fate of wild horses and burros in our country.

We’re actively tracking who will be in this conference and how we can impact the negotiations. We’ll be in touch as we know more.

In the meantime, please consider an emergency donation to help us continue to fight for wild horses.

You know the stakes: if protections are removed and slaughter or “euthanizing” begin, tens of thousands of wild horses will die. It would be an unprecedented mass slaughter. It would be tragic and defy the recommendations of scientists.

You have done an incredible job of making that case. We’ve won a major victory, but the battle is still on. Please keep it up.

Thank you for being with us,

Suzanne Roy, Executive Director

URGENT HELP NEEDED – ANOTHER 48 HOUR DEAD LINE – MORE BABIES – CAN WE SAVE THEM FROM SLAUGHTER ?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Hi all,

I am home from the hospital and desperately hoping that we can make this Holiday one to be thankful for. Another “48 hour deadline is here”.

We just got “the call”. _ As I write this, there are babies at risk of being loaded onto the slaughter truck tomorrow night if we do not step up and save them._ We need to let him know ASAP! if we will be there or if these babies die.

However, the last time we got a call for 6, it was 14 babies two hours later and by the time Matt did the pick up it was 22. So we need to be prepared for a much larger number. We are praying it won’t be more, but we have never, ever, not had “more” babies upon arrival in WA.Right now it is 4-5??

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

I’m writing you today on-the-ground in Nevada where community organizations have been protesting outside the Governor’s office. 

As you know, our organization was working with the the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) on a successful, humane wild horse management program. Two weeks ago, it was abruptly halted. We know our opponents prefer slaughter to seeing success in humane birth control. 

Help us fight back. ADD YOUR NAME —> Tell Nevada Governor Sandoval: Tourism drives Nevada’s economy and we are the tourists who urge you to put science over politics. Keep humane wild horse management.

It’s not too late to save this incredible program. Today, we’re presenting the results of the first year of humane birth control program. The results are overwhelmingly positive: at no cost to taxpayers, our partnership built a database of 2,700 Virginia Range horses, we prevented more than 146 births in 2017 using humane birth control, and we project more than 200 births will be prevented in 2018.

There is no reason to halt this program. Earlier this year, the NDA Director noted how pleased he was with the program. The National Academy of Sciences recommends humane birth control. And our results in the field are validating that recommendation.

Keep up the fight. With your help, we are optimistic about resuming work with the NDA to allow this very successful public-private partnership to continue.

SIGN OUR PETITION: Keep the Virginia Range humane wild horse management program.

Thank you,

If you don’t speak up for Mustangs, who will?

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

While we fight to save our humane mustang management program in Nevada, we cannot lose sight of the national issue.

With Senate appropriations delayed and the timeline still uncertain, now isn’t the time to take a rest. Our opposition isn’t.

Already, dozens of our supporters have recorded video messages to Congress. We created a heartfelt ad with your submissions — you can watch it now and then record your own!

Our video tool lets you easily record a short video on your phone or laptop. It won’t take more than a few minutes, and the video will be sent directly to your members of Congress.

We know you’ll have plenty to say but a few points we hope you’ll include:

  • Congress must maintain the longstanding prohibition on destroying healthy wild horses and burros and oppose any effort that would open the door to slaughter.
  • 80% of Americans oppose the slaughter of America’s wild horses.
  • The PZP birth control vaccine is a scientifically-proven, low-cost alternative that can used to humanely manage wild populations and maintain their wild free-roaming behaviors.

So record your own video now. It’s really easy. It’ll take just a few minutes of your time. And it will help us cut through the clutter in Washington and be heard on this critical issue.

For the horses,

They pulled the plug

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Since 2013, our organization worked in concert with the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) on a successful, community-based wild horse management program. It has been an incredible private-public partnership using zero taxpayer funds to humanely manage the Virginia Range horses using birth control (PZP).

In four short years, our program has effectively reduced the Virginia Range wild horse population (estimated at 3,000 horses) by 500 through humane birth control and rescue – without any horses going to the slaughter auction. We’ve spent over $400,000 to protect these cherished mustangs and our local coalition partners have contributed thousands of volunteer hours.

Last week, the NDA terminated this successful program. Out of the blue. And there’s no explanation other than politics. Without our program, more horses will be born, more horses will be removed from the range and horses will go to the slaughter auction. 

Will help us fight back? We can’t let the forces that want to slaughter wild horses win! 

1. Call Governor Sandoval’s office at (775) 684-5670

Tell him: I’m calling to ask Governor Sandoval to restore the Virginia Range Horse Cooperative Agreements with the American Wild Horse Campaign. Governor Sandoval should not turn his back on this successful community partnership that’s bringing private dollars and volunteer resources to protect public safety and humanely manage these cherished mustangs. Nevada taxpayers and these historic mustangs deserve better.

2. ADD YOUR NAME –> Tell Nevada Governor Sandoval: Keep community-based, humane wild horse management program.

Our local coalition partners and Nevada citizens have been calling. They’ll be visiting the Governors office and holding events. Will you stand with them by calling and signing the petition today?

911 – 14 LIVES AT STAKE…… CAN WE SAVE THEM??? IT’S UP TO Y’ALL AGAIN….48 HOURS TO SAY YES OR NO….. 1

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Above are some of the babies from the last trip.

It’s Saturday, and we JUST NOW got a call from the shipper. We have 48 hours to be there to pick up a MINIMUM of 14 of this year’s babies.They will be older kids, but how do we say no, you need to ship them????

So it is going to be up to y’all if, and how many, we can save. The last group was underfunded by about $2000, but luckily we received a grant from Giant Steps Foundation who covered the balance still owed for that rescue.

They also gave us a grant for the additional nursery building we so desperately need, our wild horse chute and to help with hay. THANK YOU & GOD BLESS YOU, GIANT STEPS FOUNDATION. However, these funds can ONLY be used for what they are specified for, and they are needed explicitly for those items.

More Than Twenty Horses Killed on a Colorado Ranch

Three fights at once

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

While we press the U.S. Senate to reject BLM’s request for slaughter and sue the BLM for illegal roundups, we have a third fight on our hands:

Next week, the National BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board meets for the first time since its outrageous vote last November to recommend that the BLM kill tens of thousands of innocent wild horses and burros.

Our team will be there. But we need you to submit public comments to this committee now — so they know the American people reject their sham recommendation.

Tell them now — send an email to: whbadvisoryboard@blm.gov.

Please keep your comments respectful, but make it clear where you stand. Consider these points:

  • 80% of Americans oppose killing our wild horses and burros and support protecting them on our public lands.
  • The vote to slaughter mustangs is unconscionable and completely unjustified in light of the cost-effective, scientifically recommended PZP birth control vaccine, which can be used to humanely manage wild horse populations on the range.
  • This board is supposed to represent stakeholders that include the public, science, wild horse advocacy, environmental and wildlife concerns. It’s time for them to stop doing the bidding of the special interest livestock lobby, which is making tens of millions of dollars off the BLM’s mustang roundup program.

We need to be heard because the Advisory Board members certainly aren’t speaking out on our behalf. The board ignored the overwhelming will of the American people AND the recommendations of the nation’s premier scientific body — the National Academy of Sciences — by voting to slaughter our American wild horses and burros. Only one member of this Advisory Board – our friend and colleague Ginger Kathrens, Executive Director of The Cloud Foundation – voted no.

It’s time to let this board know that Americans will not stand for their disregard of the public will and the welfare of our iconic wild horses and burros.

Email your comments right now to: whbadvisoryboard@blm.gov.

We won’t stop

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Not only is BLM pushing Congress for permission to slaughter America’s mustangs, it’s blatantly violating the law rounding them up right now in Wyoming

We’re not backing down. Even as we push the U.S. Senate to stop slaughter, we’re fighting the feds’ illegal actions to destroy mustangs. Last week, we won two critical lawsuits to stop the Forest Service from shrinking wild horse habitat in California and the BLM from destroying an Idaho mustang herd by sterilizing every horse in it.

And, last Friday, we filed suit in U.S. District Court Wyoming to stop the BLM from illegally rounding up hundreds more wild horses than authorized by pretending young horses born this year don’t count.

We’re not going to let them get away with it, but we need your help.

We’re winning, but these lawsuits are expensive. They’re draining our funds and our staff resources.

Can you donate right now to help our legal and campaign teams stand up to the BLM?

As the BLM prepares for a possible pro-slaughter policy, the roundups are increasing and intensifying. Alarmingly, the agency is sending captured mustangs to private feedlots in Idaho and Utah where they may never be seen again. Our latest lawsuit challenges that too.

Our nation’s beautiful, majestic wild horses and burros deserve our protection, not helicopters rounding them up, shipping them out of public view to private holding pens, and putting every one of these innocent animals at risk of being brutally killed or slaughtered.

Together, we’ll stop them. Please donate now.

A week away

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We’re a week away from critical votes. The Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee is expected to mark up its spending bill next week, with full committee votes the week after. Since the House lifted the longstanding prohibition on the destruction of healthy wild horses and burros in its spending bill, it’s critical that the Senate maintain these protections. These votes will likely determine what the final budget language is — and the lives of tens of thousands of wild horses literally hang in the balance.

When we meet with Senate offices and ask them what makes a difference, they always tell us to keep up the calls and emails. They REALLY matter. Our opponents have the money and power but we have the people. Keep it up.

Click here to call AND email your U.S. Senators right now.

Tell them: Maintain longstanding prohibitions on the destruction of healthy wild horses. Oppose any spending bill that would allow for the killing or sale for slaughter of healthy wild horses.

The roundup underway right now in Wyoming is a stark reminder of how important these votes are. Images of wild horses chased relentlessly by helicopter, driven into barbed wire, captured, and separated from their families are heartbreaking. Even worse is the thought that every one of the nearly 2,000 wild horses captured could be killed if the Congress does not reject the BLM’s request to destroy them and sell them for brutal slaughter.

We can’t let them win.

Keep calling,

Grace Kuhn
