LIFESAVERS WILD HORSE RESCUE

We are dedicated to saving wild and domestic horses from abuse, neglect and slaughter.  We prepare our rescued horses for adoption to only the best homes.  Certain rescued horses are deemed unadoptable for a variety of reasons and those deserving horses live out their natural lives at our beautiful wilderness sanctuary called Wild Horse Canyon, located in Caliente, CA.

Our rescued horses have the opportunity to give back to those who supported their freedom from suffering by being involved in our Horse Inspired Growth and Healing programs such as Wild Horse Boot Camp – a wild horse gentling workshop, Women’s Wild Horse Empowerment Journey – a retreat for women that will find their inner strength and courage by learning to gentle wild horses, and Wild Horse Warriors Journey – for veterans with PTSD, TBI, Depression and other invisible and physical post-war injuries.  The Warriors find relief and coping skills when they make a heart connection with wild and domestic horses. Lifesavers knows that rescued wild horses and heart-broken humans can heal each other – we have living proof!

Your ongoing support helps us continue our lifesaving mission and programs.  Please enjoy our website.  Thank you.

URGENT RESCUE! UPDATE 3/24/18

We are thrilled and proud to announce that our 1 day fund raising campaign to save two horses from slaughter was a complete success!

We had just 24 hours to get two horses out of a Kansas kill pen to safety. Both are 8 year old BLM mustang mares.  So we reached out to our online friends and email list and asked for any little gift they could send to save two innocent lives.  The response was incredible and we were able to raise what is needed in just one day and it was St. Patricks Day.

This rescue is not over, we have much to do before these two lucky souls get to come to their new home in California.  They have been picked up and transported away from the kill pen to a quarantine facility. There they will hang out together, have vet work done, and wait for a minimum of 3 weeks to pass. We quarantine horses from feedlots before bringing them home to make sure they didn’t pick up any illness from the dirty infected kill pens.  If they do break out with something – they will get treated at the quarantine facility until the vet gives them the thumbs up.  We are now looking into finding a horse hauler that will bring Saoirse and Macha home to California after they are released from quarantine.

Rescuing horses is not cheap. And saving them from slaughter is just the beginning. After we get them to our ranch we will need to invest in training, feed, farrier, more vet care, and who knows what else and for how long. So we continue to accept donations toward this rescue and the other work that we do at Lifesavers.  We already have 400 horses under our care and  any amount is a blessing that helps us continue our mission.
