Mission Statement

The American Wild Horse Campaign's (AWHC) mission is to defend America's wild horses and burros to protect their freedom, preserve their habitat, and promote humane standards of treatment.

Description

The American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) is a nonprofit organization fighting to ensure the future of America's iconic wild horses and burros and the Western public lands where they roam. We work to reform the cruel and costly federal wild horse and burro roundup program and replace it with humane management that keeps wild horses and burros, wild, protected and free. AWHC manages the largest, humane, fertility control program for wild, free-roaming horses in the world.
