and burro Working closely with the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC) and the Platero Project, the CAPE Animal Sanctuary is now the forever home to rescued burros, all from the Nevada wilderness.
Despite the passage of the 1971 Wild Horses and Burros Act, the government has wiped out these animals from 40% of their designated habitat. Since then more than 270,000 wild horses and burros have been removed from public lands.*
Burros are a part of our American heritage. These animals are particularly smart, inquisitive, loving and playful. Meet the CAPE burros Billy, Celina and Platero (aka Pippy), Vita and Sophie, Penny, Trixie & Misty.
With your help CAPE has plans to build more fencing on our sanctuary, increasing the pasture size to accommodate more rescued burros. Visit this link to help support CAPE's Burro Rescue program.
