Project Cirrus

Protecting Mustangs in Western Colorado!

The commitment of Project Cirrus is to protect and preserve the Mustangs of Western Colorado. Every Mustang deserves a safe and secure home, away from the threat of kill pens. Since its inception in May 2022, the project has made a significant difference, securing a brighter future for more than two dozen Mustangs. 

The project is a collaborative effort of Grand Valley Horse Rescue, and the Eagles and Wild Horses Ranch. These organizations have dedicated their efforts to ensure the well-being of these majestic creatures. 

The success of Project Cirrus relies heavily on the generosity and support of the public. There are several ways you can help. One of the simplest ways is to purchase a T-shirt. Not only will you receive a unique piece of apparel, but the proceeds go directly towards the project. 

Another way to contribute is by becoming a sponsor. Sponsorship provides critical financial support that enables the project to continue its vital work. It's a wonderful opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of these beautiful animals. 

The Mustangs need your help. Please consider supporting Project Cirrus today. Your contribution can help ensure that no Mustang from Western Colorado ever finds themselves on that long dark train to a kill pen.

Cirrus' Story

Welcome to Project Cirrus, a compassionate initiative born from the love for Little Book Cliff Mustangs, and the determination to protect them. Project Cirrus is the combined efforts of Grand Valley Horse Rescue and Eagles and Wild Horse Ranch. Our journey began with an eye on the horizon, where the home of the Little Book Cliff Mustangs can be seen from our rescue.

In the spring of 2022, we welcomed three of these magnificent creatures into our care - Notch, Cameo, and Renata. However, it was the plight of another mustang, Cirrus, that truly ignited our mission. Sold at a local auction, Cirrus found herself in a kill pen in Eaton, Colorado. Rescued by a California-based organization, she fell ill and was fighting for her life. When we were contacted about taking her in, we didn't hesitate. We couldn't bear the thought of another Colorado mustang enduring such hardship.

Thus, Project Cirrus was born. Our mission is to protect the mustangs in Western Colorado, ensuring they never have to face the trials that Cirrus did. We are dedicated to providing a safe haven for these beautiful animals, and we strive to prevent their suffering. 

We invite those with a heart for rescues to join us in our mission. Your support can make a world of difference in the lives of these mustangs. With your help, we can ensure they live the safe lives they deserve. Together, we can make a difference!
