Help us protect our sanctuary’s wild horses, burros from wildfires

Dry conditions: Mycah and Jalama at RTF’s San Luis Obispo, Calif., satellite sanctuary. 

Deadly wildfires have decimated more the 4 million acres in California in 2020. Though Return to Freedom is fortunate that our sanctuaries on the Central Coast and in Northern California have escaped the blazes, wildfires remain an ongoing and active threat. RTF is doing all we can to maintain protections for our resident wild horses and burros and remain actively involved and available to our regional community as wildfires continue to surround us.

In order to maintain the safety and well-being of our wild horses and burros, RTF has launched the Fire Fund. Dollars raised for this fund will help secure the safety of our sanctuaries. They will also include emergency funds for crisis intervention for our resident horses and burros, as well as providing relief to the larger community when others come under the threat or are destroyed by fire and need a temporary evacuation location. Recently, for example, RTF arranged for 15 horses that we had adopted out years ago to come back to the sanctuary after their new home was destroyed by wildfires.

Disaster can strike at any time, and we need the ability to respond effectively. Please donate today for this very real need.
