The mission of the Mustang Heritage Foundation and the goal of the Extreme Mustang Makeover is to increase the adoption of mustangs across the country. The Mustang Heritage Foundation created the Extreme Mustang Makeover event to showcase the recognized value of mustangs through a national training competition.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is responsible for managing 258 million acres of public lands, located mostly in the West. Wild horses and burros roaming public rangelands are managed in a manner consistent with BLM's overall multiple-use mission, as set forth in the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976. Since 1973, the BLM has placed more than 216,000 wild horses and burros into private care through adoption. For more information, visit wildhorseandburro.blm.gov or call 866-4MUSTANGS.
Ford Motor Company and Take Pride in America, a national partnership program, have teamed to support the Bureau in its efforts to place sale-eligible animals in good homes. The BLM is committed to the well-being of wild horses and burros, both on and off the range. With this support from Ford and Take Pride in America, the BLM will be able to carry out the will of Congress while finding good homes for wild horses and burros, which are a treasured symbol of the Western spirit and an icon of American freedom.
Save the Mustangs Fund
The Save the Mustangs Fund, established in May 2005 by Ford Motor Company in collaboration with the BLM and Take Pride in America, builds public awareness and support for wild horses. In less than a year, the Fund generated more than $200,000 in contributions, including Ford's financial support for 2,000 horses, and has educated more than one million visitors through an informational website, savethemustangs.org.
Some of the activities that have benefited from the "Save the Mustangs" Fund in 2007 include the following:
Providing monetary incentives to 501(c)3 organizations that are able to provide homes for the older mustangs and burros,
Building a relationship with Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College to gentle wild horses as part of their equine studies curriculum,
Sponsoring several mini-clinics put on by equine groups to educate local communities about the needs and caring for mustangs, and
Becoming involved with the "Extreme Mustang Makeover" event, which highlights the recognized value of mustangs through a national training competition.
