I have moved to DE in 2005, and became aware of Whimsical Equine Rescue shortly after I moved here, I met with Karen and explained to her that I was interested in Adopting a horse. Karen was so nice explained how the adoption program worked and explained to me it was not as easy as just picking out a horse. Over the next 6 months of visiting Whimsical Equine and getting to know HotShot Dancer along with all of the other wonderful horses that they had looking for homes, Karen had me meet Lisa, at that point they came to my home and made sure that not only did I have enough room, but I had the proper fencing and proper shelter, I loved that they just did not allow me to adopt a horse but they cared so much about HotShot Dancer that they wanted to make sure that he was going to a good home, Well HotShot Dancer has been with me since 2007, and I hope to be able to bring more to my home. Whimsical Equine Rescue are not just a Rescue, They love each and every animal that comes to them, and they are very cautious and very thorough about who is lucky enough to adopt one of their precious Horses.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have been at Whimisical Equine Rescue when they have Meet the Horses Day, When they have done Trail Rides to rise awareness on Horse abuse and abandoment. They have put out news letters to help new horse owners with basic care tips. They drop what ever it is they are doing if you are having any trouble with the horse you have adopted without question, they are there for you. Always.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't I think Karen and Lisa do a great Job, I wish the State would give them money to help with the great thing they do.

While being a small rescue group, with no funds except for donations and their own money, Whimsical Equine Horse Rescue has always been quick to offer their help.
I do rescue transport (dogs and cats) as well as post for shelters and rescues. Any time I get a plea for a horse, I always email Whimsical. They may not always be able, at that time, to take the horse but they are always there to help, whether it be in aiding the owner in resolving a problem which allows him to keep his horse(s) or to assist with finding placement with another rescue.

I have always received a quick reply and whatever assistance they can give at the time of the request.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't except for trying to help them get more funding.
