Foundation saves 43 wild mustangs from going to probable slaughter

Cindy A. Lee makes a difference on a national scale

DENVER, Co (September 3, 2013)–Unsung hero, Cindy A. Lee, president of the  Wags and Menace Make A Difference Foundation, known on Petline 9, saved a total of 43 wild horses from going to alleged slaughter from the contested Fort McDermitt roundup. The Denver-based nonprofit first saved 34 wild mustangs from alleged slaughter at the livestock auction in Fallon, NV on August 17th. The following week they saved 9 unbranded wild horses who were held up along with 140 others in a legal action that was eventually dismissed. All 43 wild mustangs saved were given veterinary care including vaccinations and care for injuries caused by the roundup and transport to the auction. The McDermitt 43 shipped out and arrived yesterday at two sanctuaries in California. There they will live out their lives in peace and be forever free from harassment.

“This is our American heritage and what’s happening to the wild mustangs is wrong”, says Cindy A. Lee. “My foundation and I will work to save them from harm.”

The Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that seeks to provide medical treatment for sick animals in Colorado and the United States, to fund organizations and activities that benefit animals, and to inspire, teach, and motivate other individuals and organizations to achieve similar objectives.

“Without Cindy A. Lee’s heartfelt work these national treasures would end up on a dinner plate abroad,” states Anne Novak, executive director of Protect Mustangs.
