Wild horse and humane animal advocacy groups from across the nation are joining forces for a single cause: to encourage the American public to consider and act on the adoption of a wild horse or burro. A goal of 1,000 adoptions has been set for the first National Wild Horse Adoption Day, which will be held September 26, 2009.
The Mustang Heritage Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to facilitating successful adoptions for America’s excess mustangs and burros.
