Help us save and make a difference in the lives of Captured Mustangs and Burros!
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:
- There is a credible threat that the mustangs in holding will be euthanized. We are stepping up to move to I-40 near Tucumcari and try to ramp up production to 1000 horses a year. We need to raise $370,000 to build a pilot project. To demonstrate to the big funders that we have grass roots support we are asking for small donations from anyone who sees the value of training as a way to get horses adopted.
