At Wild Peace Sanctuary we provide sanctuary for rescued wild equines and engage them in holistic land management and regenerative agricultural practices to restore and maintain ecological balance. Their beneficial presence on the land helps to create rich and fertile soil which allows us to grow organic vegetables, fruit trees, and medicinal plants, and their gentle ways bring a sense of peace and joy to all who spend time with them. Our vision is of bringing animals, people, and the land together in healing circles of reverence, repair and reciprocity.
BECOME A SPONSOR
Your support helps us care for our resident animals, all of whom came from difficult circumstances,
and frees up time and energy for us to develop our healing and educational programs alongside
doing what we can to raise awareness of the plight of wild horses and burros. Our sponsors
receive exclusive videos and photographs of the animals and occasional special offers!
There is an animal welfare and environmental issue occurring in the United States that is shrouded in misinformation. This is the systemic and brutal removal of wild horses and burros from U.S. public lands to make way for cattle ranching, mining, oil and gas, and other private and corporate interests, often leading to injury, incarceration in disease-ridden holding facilities, and the slaughter pipeline. The tragic irony is that these native, keystone herbivores could be our allies in this time of climate instability and environmental degradation, as they regenerate soil, restore biodiversity, and prevent wildfire.
Alongside our work with equines to restore and regenerate land, we provide opportunities for people to
learn, heal, and reconnect through participation in educational workshops, events, and therapeutic
experiences. All our services are offered to the public on a sliding scale and a pay-what-you-can
basis in order to make them accessible to all, and to practice natural reciprocity.
GIVING BACK TO
LAND & PEOPLE
We make organic compost from the raw manure that our resident herd provides, mixed with debris from the land and coastal amendments. The end result is a nutrient-rich and slow release bio-fertilizer, produced by the earthworms, millipedes, and microorganisms that digest these materials. We use our compost to grow fruit, herbs, and vegetables and donate the rest to local environmental groups and local food sovereignty programs including Concerned Citizens for Clean Air and the Tribal farm at The Confederated Tribes of Siletz.
WHAT OUR SPONSORS SAY
“I am delighted to support Wild Peace Sanctuary in caring for their equines as they support
land and people to heal, as well as their essential work in raising awareness around
the very serious animal welfare and ecological issues that surrounds
the removal of wild horses and burros in North America."
