We sponsor wild horses and support organizations that both advocate for and create safe havens for animals and wildlife including the following:
The American Wild Horse Campaign is dedicated to preserving American wild horses and burros in viable free-roaming herds for generations to come, as part of our national heritage.
Since 1951, the Animal Welfare Institute has been dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people. They seek better treatment of animals everywhere–in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home, and in the wild. Their Compassion Index and Action eAlerts are invaluable ways to connect with and act on important issues facing animals and wildlife.
The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary provides not only freedom for unadoptable and unwanted horses, but also a research area dedicated to solving wild horse management that will contribute to the well-being of wild horses everywhere. Their efforts preserve these “treasures of the prairie” in the “heart of the hills.” In September 2018, they celebrated 30 years of dedication to wild horses.
The mission of the Corolla Wild Horse Fund is to protect, conserve, and responsibly manage the herd of wild Colonial Spanish Mustangs roaming freely on the northernmost Currituck Outer Banks, and to promote the continued preservation of this land as a permanent sanctuary for horses designated as the State Horse and defined as a cultural treasure by the state of North Carolina.
On November 18, 2004, United States Senate Resolution 452 recognized December 13 as the National Day of the Horse. “Designating December 13, 2004, as National Day of the Horse and encouraging the people of the United States to be mindful of the contribution of horses to the economy, history, and character of the United States.” December 13, 2019 celebrates the 15th anniversary of National Day of the Horse.
Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center
The Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center is dedicated to preserving the future of the wild horses of the Pryor Mountains. Wild horses still roam freely in the Pryor Mountains outside of Lovell, Wyoming. This herd of horses is very special because of its Colonial Spanish American heritage. This tough little horse, derived from the horses of Portugal and Spain, has been present in this rugged mountain area for nearly 200 years. If lost, the herd cannot be restored; and so its biological viability, together with its history, must be preserved. In September 2018, they celebrated 50 years of dedication to wild horses.
Return to Freedom serves as a sanctuary and safe haven to more than 500 wild horses and 42 burros, is committed to conserving the unique bloodlines of the American Mustang, and serves as a nationally-respected voice as a wild horse advocate to ensure the future of the free-roaming wild horse and burro. In December 2018, they celebrated 20 years of dedication to wild horses.
This Old Horse provides a sanctuary to retired, rescued, and recovering horses while they continue to serve as ambassadors for the positive effect of “horse power” in the lives of people. They are a retirement refuge for horses including the new home for nearly 50 Hallelujah Horses–horses that are an important part of the largest horse rescue in U.S. history. We are grateful for the opportunity to sponsor Fernando–who is one of the Hallelujah Horses living out his life with his beloved friends.
