The heart of Neda DeMayo (founder of RTF) is as large as the acreage upon which hundreds of wild horses and burros now live free in Lompoc, CA. Understanding the social dynamics of wild horses, Return To Freedom has a policy of keeping intact the herds it rescues. RTF allows the horses to maintain their natural lifestyle and social behaviors while safely managing their population with non-hormonal and reversible contraception to the mares. Return To Freedom diligently works to educate others in order to stop the rapid removal of a living part of our national heritage. This sanctuary serves as a beautiful model for the care and preservation of America's wild horses and burros, demonstrating the absolute necessity to respect and cherish nature!

Wow, look at how the administrative expenses have jumped from '07 to '09. Neda DeMayo being compensated $57,000 for realizing a life long dream while consuming 6.14% of total expenses is way too much. To realize a life long dream most would sacrifice much. Appears Ned DeMayo started something to bleed the hearts of interested persons and then choose to bleed their wallets once there appeared the opportunity.
