Help Us Save The American Wild Horses!
Donations allow Mustang Camp to continue our work with captive wild horses.
Did you know that it takes us about 45 days to gentle and train a Burro/Mustang before they meet criteria to be adopted? Our records show that it costs around $500 to bring an animal through our system (hay and transport being our biggest expenses). Amazingly though, all of the training is done by volunteer staff (including Patricia) and exchange students under our step-by-step taming program, so donated dollars stretch farther and we are able to help more animals.
In 2017 we trained and found adoptive homes for over 48 burros and mustangs. We are also happy to say that in June 2017 we became registered as one of the ten licensed New Mexico Horse Rescues. Since then we have brought in wild horses from the Navajo Nation and the San Felipe Pueblo in Northern New Mexico from other rescue organizations who are not set up to deal with wild horses. Since early spring, we held three major successful adoption events. John has put over 15k miles on the truck and trailer so far this year hand delivering – with a loving touch - all these animals. This was all done despite losing much of our federal funding in late spring. We are super proud of our accomplishments this year, and we are thankful for all you who have helped, supported, given us positive words, and donated over the year. A huge THANK YOU goes to all you - we couldn’t have done it without you!
In 2018 we plan to greatly increase the number of horses we train and adopt with a special emphasis on the wild horses on Navajo land who's future is most likely a trip to a Mexican slaughterhouse. Your donation will help us get them to Mustang Camp. You can sponsor a specific sanctuary horse by visiting our currents horses.
Current urgent need for Donations:
- $1000 for multiple vet bills
- $3000 for hay for the sanctuary horses
- $2000 for equipment repair (truck and horse trailer repairs are needed)
- SPONSOR a horse - donate $500 and get your favorite horse trained (you may even be able to name him/her)
