All of us at Return to Freedom want to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for all the compassionate Return to Freedom friends who generously donate, take action and participate in various ways to support Return to Freedom’s sanctuary and efforts for wildhorse and burro preservation on the range.

Only because of Return to Freedom’s supporters, have we been able to turn our challenges into amazing opportunities! Your support makes all of this possible. From providing a safe haven for 375 wild horses and 45 burros, to programs that engage and empower youth and adults to defend the freedom and ranges for the wild ones!

All of us at Return to Freedom want to thank you all for supporting our work throughout the year. Whether you made a financial contribution, participated in a program or wrote a letter to your Representatives in Congress, you are why Return to Freedom is a leading voice for change.

Thank you for your generosity of spirit and your commitment to protect the freedom and future of America’s wild horses and burros!


Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving holiday and the tonic of wildness.

With grateful hearts,

~ Neda DeMayo, Return to Freedom Board of Directors and Staff ~
