Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue Charity Profile
Since 1997, Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue, a program of nonprofit organization, Lifesavers, Inc., has provided refuge, training and adoption placement for hundreds of horses in need. Our Lancaster, California, ranch is home to our rehabilitation and rescue operation, where our dedicated staff work with our rescued horses to provide them training, socialization and handling necessary to find them adoptive homes.
For those horses who have difficulty adjusting to the human world, or who have suffered, our natural habitat sanctuary in Kern County, California provides a permanent home.
Lifesavers specializes in the rescue of American Mustangs. Today's wild free-roaming horses are the descendants of the horses reintroduced to the North American continent by early explorers, and their ancestors. They were war horses, Indian ponies, cavalry remounts and ranch horses. The modern wild horse embodies the best traits of their forbearers, as well as the gifts given to them by nature: courage, strength, stamina, and heart.
Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue Volunteer Information
Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, or accompanied by a parent or guardian. Parent or guardian will be expected to work alongside volunteer minor and be responsible for their actions and their safety.
Volunteers are welcome to enlist their friends and family members to work with them to earn additional hours toward the adoption of their horse. Each additional volunteer will earn credit hours for adopter. Two volunteers will earn twice as much credit toward the horse. Five volunteers would only need to work 16 hours each to pay off a $400 adoption donation balance. Each 8 hour day of volunteer work is worth $40 off the donation balance.
