I know the founder of this group and keep in touch through FB. The organization has saved endless lives and brought animals back from the brink of death, with love, care and lots of medical treatment. They are gentle, wise, loving and the animals respond in kind. It is a remarkable group and deserve the highest of praise and support.

A most wonderful and loving organization! Just look into the eyes of the rescued animals and you feel the oneness of nature, the compassion of trust, and the importance of respect.

Blue Horse Mukwa is about 3 hours from me, but well worth the two trips I have made to visit. I was so impressed with the cleanliness and how the various animals are cared for. There is so much love for these animals and they have really benefited from this TLC. Some were sick or starving when they were rescued and it is so beautiful to see the difference after they have been there even a short time. Blue Horse Mukwa is a first class retirement and rescue center.

I was very disappointed to discover that this organization has not fulfilled the requirements imposed upon it by the Office of the State Veterinarian in Virginia. In this state, all releasing agencies (rescues, shelters) are required to submit annual reports disclosing how many, and what kind of animals came through their facility, and the disposition of the animals in the facility. This rescue has never filed those reports, and when an inquiry was made as to why, the volunteers and founder were uncooperative and defensive. Unfortunately, no member of the public is able to determine what the rescue is doing with donor gifts, as no one is able to determine how many animals are in the facility, and how many died, were adopted, or transferred to another facility. It is supposed to be an equine rescue, though the founder states she also has dogs. Canine rescue is not part of their mission statement. To my knowledge the rescue still has not complied with Virginia law. Some of the documentation required by the State Corporation Commission was also delinquent, though I have not checked to see if that has been rectified. I will not donate to this nonprofit, nor would I recommend this nonprofit to other donors. The nonprofit and its supporters appear to believe their good intent is all that is required to be a
