Want to join me in supporting a good cause? This #GivingTuesday I’m raising money for Citizens Against Equine Slaughter and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. And on Giving Tuesday Nov 27, Facebook and PayPal will match a total of $7 Million in donations. Thank you for your support. I’ve included information about Citizens Against Equine Slaughter below.
📷 This is what true, grassroots, unified, advocacy looks like. We at CAES have pulled it together, we combined funding of different organizations, we all work to do whatever we can to support legal cases (research, writing, delivering documents by volunteers), we split up tasks or issues that need to be addressed so we aren’t all working on the same issue, and that makes us more efficient and more effective. We pulled together the boots on the ground teams to get provide water and documentation needed to accomplish our goals, YOUR goals. We continue to push for legislation at state and federal levels that will stop the slaughter, euthanasia of healthy horses, and continued theft and destruction of habitats. We coordinate with our state offices to provide a unified message to legislators, and we coordinate with our sister organizations to have that unified message represent all of us.
CAES cannot support unity with large organizations that do not involve grassroots organizations, that do not provide open transparent and clear goals. Organizations that will not join the legal battles to stop euthanasia of healthy horses, to stop sterilization of wild mares and abortions of unborn foals. We cannot support organizations that pretend they are doing these things by publishing false narratives to their supporters, all in an effort to generate that income that pays their salaries. They too are subsidized by the government, and we have been infiltrated by and harmed by them in the past which led to a less effective fight for the horses in the end. So what some see as an unwillingness to work with others is really a safeguarding of our process and sometimes a kind of trade secret, to providing the real protections we all fight for American Native Horses.
–CAES and our state branches: Heber Wild Horses Freedom Preservation Alliance in AZ and the National Wild Horse & Burro Administration (formerly Oregon Wild Horse & Burro Association) started a program called Water for Western Wildlife working with BLM and the Forest Service to haul water into wild horse areas for all wildlife.
– CAES fought for an end to wild mare sterilization experiments and won (Press Release coming out on November 27, 2018).
– CAES is still fighting for the return of horses to the Muddy Creek in Utah, where BLM took more horses than legally allowed.
-CAES was a partner in getting the release of the Alto wild horse herd in NM.
-CAES filed a Congressional complaint against a sitting US Congressman who lied to Congress regarding wild horses.
– CAES filed a veterinary complaint and got the OVMEB in OR to investigate the man who has performed experiments on pregnant wild mares.
-CAES continues to push sponsors of the SAFE Act to do more than signing on as co-sponsors and get the bill passed.
-CAES advocates for the Essential 4h, horses, habitats and humane handling using what we coined as GROUPA (Grassroots, Resolute, Organized, Unified, Advocacy) where YOUR voice matters, no one collects a salary with your donations, and we evaluate the most cost-efficient way to achieve each goal. All volunteer…all the time, and you can be part of the GROUPA.
