THE SANCTUARY

OUR VISION

At Wild Peace Sanctuary we are providing sanctuary for a small herd of rescued wild horses and burros, and engaging them in regenerative agricultural practices to improve soil health, increase biodiversity, support food security, and prevent wildfire. Their beneficial presence on the land is helping us restore native habitat for our native wildlife, and their gentle ways bring a sense of peace and joy to all who spend time here. Our vision is one of bringing animals, people, and the land together in healing circles of reverence, repair, reconnection, and reciprocity.

a range of services to facilitate healing through nature immersion and equine therapy.

WILD HORSES
& BURROS

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 severe injury and death, confinement in barren and crowded government holding facilities, or the slaughter pipeline. The tragic irony is that these gentle herbivores are valuable allies at this critical time of increasing climate instability and ecological degradation, due to their ability to regenerate the soil, disperse native seed, remove combustible material, and restore biodiversity.

BECOME A SPONSOR

Your support helps us care for our resident animals, all of whom have survived experiences of abuse and/or neglect.

It helps us free up time and energy to develop our healing services and educational programs, while 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!

GIVING BACK TO
LAND & PEOPLE

We make 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, slow release bio-fertilizer, produced by the earthworms, millipedes, and microorganisms that digest these materials. We use our compost to grow the fruit and vegetables we donate to local food programs, and donate the rest to community ecological-restoration groups and food sovereignty programs, including the Concerned Citizens for Clean Air and 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."
