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.

I was asked by a fellow animal advocate if I knew of Blue Horse because she going to donate money for a horribly abused pit bull named Hogan had taken in that needed much medical assistance and prayers. I did some research and found they were an amazing organization that walked the talk and would go above and beyond to help an animal, any animal to the end of this earth. Rabiah Seminole's post telling of the horrible shape that Hogan was in and her heartfelt words in the beginning of his journey were touching and brought tears to my eyes. Team Hogan was formed and I followed each day the postings and updates of this incredible little warriors strength to survive and shared it on our Facebook page. I am so happy I was asked for that initial reference because I learned of an amazing Rescue organization and its Founder Rabiah and her dedication to all living creatures.
