Precedent-Setting Program

Return to Freedom, the founding organization of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC), has signed a cooperative agreement with the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) to humanely manage more than 1,500 horses in the Virginia Range, which encompasses more than 280,000 acres. This precedent-setting agreement launches the largest ever private-public partnership to manage wild horses, while at the same time improving public safety and benefi ting Nevada taxpayers.

AWHPC coalition partner, the ASPCA, has generously provided much-needed resources to launch the management agreement. “Return to Freedom has been honored to umbrella this precedentsetting project and looks forward to working with the state, local horse organizations and the ASPCA to humanely manage these beloved horses in the wild, and prevent removing them from their family bands and homes on the range,” says Neda DeMayo, founder and CEO of Return to Freedom.
