Return To Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary, Charity of the Day
In the mid 1990's the Associated press was doing an investigation and expose on the widespread abuse and slaughter of wild horses. Many Americans were surprised to discover that there were still in fact wild horses living in remote areas, and outraged that they were being destroyed. After learning of this situation Neda De Mayo founded the Return to Freedom American Wild Horse Sanctuary in 1997. The sanctuary's mission, is to provides a safe haven for herds of wild horses (and burros) that would have otherwise be separated, slaughtered, abused, or left to starve to death. Currently home for around 200 horses including some very rare breeds, the Return to Freedom sanctuary focuses on many key "horse issues" including education, preservation of natural habitat and changing of legislation. One of the horses residing at the sanctuary named Scout, was rescued off the floor a slaughter house after a US federal court ruling saved her life!
