As a neighboring rescue, we have worked with Rabiah and Blue Horse Mukwa for many years. This is a top notch organization that provides loving care and compassion for the many animals that call Blue Horse Mukwa home. It is Verified by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries. The facility is beautifully maintained and the animals are provided with diets and medications tailored to their individual needs. Rabiah’s generous spirit extends beyond her animals to other rescue organizations, and she is always the first to offer assistance to whoever needs an extra set of caring hands. She is a genuine asset to Virginia’s equine rescue community, supporting both the animals and the other groups and individuals trying to help them. We could not recommend this organization more highly.

We have known Rabiah and Blue Horse Mukwa for over twelve years. Throughout that time, Rabiah has worked tirelessly to provide homes for animals discarded by others, or for whom no other safe haven was available. Blue Horse has been Verified by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and this is a well-deserved credential. Here, animals receive meticulous care from conscientious volunteers. They are safely housed and handled, receive needed veterinary care and live the remainder of their lives at the Sanctuary. Rabiah is not only the rescuer of the horses in her care, she is also quick to offer assistance to neighboring rescues, serving as an additional resource to others who are trying to help save them. She is a credit to this community and we are happy to give this credit where it is due.

Although I have not had the opportunity to visit the center personally I have followed Rabiah and Blue Horse for many years. My interest is because of the care and compassion she exhibited with a horse named Amigo. Amigo was a friend's horse who was abused and abandoned by his new owner and rescued by Rabiah. She restored his health and gave him love and safety for his remaining years. Through her photos and stories I have watched countless animals be restored and loved...like Hogan, the dog, that others have mentioned. She is a staunch advocate for stopping animal abuse. She provides a physically beautiful environment and love/caring/compassion for all the rescues be they little chickens, baby squirrels, cat, dogs or big horses.

I saw hogan - A severely abused soul who was in need of a savior. Rabiah and blue horse Mukwa not only provided a safe haven to help him heal but they gave him love so he can thrive
As the founder of my own organization, barriers against repeated cruelty, I have to step up and applaud Rabiah and her organization for their commitment their compassion in their drive to continue helping those in need

Wonderful support & assistance with a variety of pets a few of us wanted to adopt, in some cases, and were no longer able to care for in others. A terrific, dedicated staff & a great facility!

I friend Rabiah on Facebook and chatted back and forth until one day I decided to visit. I was so impressed with her operation and her love of all living things just radiats from her. Rabiah gives refuge to all species of animals with love and tender care. The volunteers that work there are just as committed to seeing that all are taken care of to the best of their ability. I went to see Misqua her newly born horse and Hogan a dog who had been badly abused in the county I live in. It was a joy to see the colt but to see Hogan thriving and happy was just amazing. Rabiah has the touch if an angel. Charlene Harris

I have watched Rabiah work miracles with animals that have found their way to Blue Horse. She provides them with love, nourishment and shelter. She truly has the greatest heart.
