Advocates for Wild Equines is going to LobbyIt!
Help give America’s wild horses and burros their own voice in DC
Let's make Wild Horse Annie proud! Our government is rounding up iconic wild horses and burros to make room on our public lands for private ranchers to graze their cattle and sheep. The ranchers that use our public land pay a pittance!
The horses are terrorized by helicopters into traps and then trucked to Bureau of Land Management holding facilities. These majestic Mustangs are traumatized, often injured and sadly deaths result . The fragile foals in the herd are especially prone to injury and death . As reported in the New York Times, many of these horses end up in the slaughter pipeline.
Thousands of advocates have spoken out for these horses. But our pleas have fallen on the deaf ears of our government officials.
Advocates for Wild Equine: A*W*E is a 100% volunteer coalition that wants to hire LobbyIt, a DC lobbying firm for the people that is affordable, accessible, and effective, to lobby for our horses. LobbyIt has provided us with a scope of services they will provide for $995 per month.
Will you please help us with a monthly contribution to raise that amount? If our needs change and we need to add additional services, you can find LobbyIt's pricing on their website: www.lobbyit.com
Thank you so much for being a voice for our wild horses and burros.
NOTE: We are an informal coalition of advocates, not a 501(c)3, so your contributions are not tax deductible.
