How you help For over 30 years, volunteers have monitored herd health, grazing availability, provided attention to sick and injured horses and foals, aided in state run adoption processes, and installed and mended fencing and cattle guards. Other volunteers are involved in ensuring federal and state departments are working within the statutes that provide protection and care for the wild horses. In 2012, our organization rescued 150 Virginia Range wild horses, which were removed from the range by the state and being sold at the livestock auction in Fallon. We work hard to find good adoptive forever homes for our horses and continually pursue opportunities that will provide them with positive opportunities. We now have a special Nevada DMV license plate that will providing funding for on the range projects and help our rescued horses. Additionally, we will be opening the Virginia Range Mustangs Sanctuary just north of Reno in 2019.
