Navajo Horse Rescue and Recovery Mission

9 Oct


The Wild for Life Foundation founded the Navajo Horse Rescue and Navajo Horse MissionRecovery Mission (NHRRM) to address and provide for the urgent needs of horses and burros found in life threatening situations due to the Navajo Nation roundups


Just recently, over two dozen 3 – 5 month old foals were found after being rounded up and taken away from their mothers, which have reportedly been shipped to slaughter.

Navajo Orphaned foalsWe have evacuated the fillies and colts to safe harbor outside of NM. “It’s going to take months for some of these little ones to heal, build their strength up and overcome the injuries they sustained during the roundups.” At least a dozen of the foals will be going directly into an all volunteer Equine Special Care Facility under WFLF, where they will be provided with crucial veterinary medical care, nutritious feed, hay and supplements, and of course, lots of TLC and specialized individual attention. You can help save these little innocent orphaned foals by making a donation today.

Funds are being raised and will go directly to pay for needed vet medical care Navajo orphaned foalsand vet medical supplies. It’s anticipated that these foals will need to remain in special care for another 10 – 14 days before they will be cleared for the next leg of their transport to their final Rescue destinations. Some of the foals have transportation covered but not all.

Volunteer rescuers of the Navajo Horse Rescue and Recovery Mission (NHRRM) have put their lives on hold to rescue, recover and evacuate survivors, and insure they will never be subject to roundup or slaughter again. The WFLF organized the Navajo Horses Rescue and Recovery Mission as a collaborative effort to save the lives of these and other majestic and sacred wild horses and burros who have been victimized by the highly contested U.S. government funded Navajo roundups.
