Review for Lusco Farms Rescue, Malvern, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first learned of Lusco Farms Rescue in the winter of 2013. I did not realize that there were donkey rescues!!! I fell in love with two donkeys and began contacting them regarding these two boys. I eventually adopted them in the spring of 2014 and then adopted two girls in the fall of 2014. Lusco Farms Rescue is very caring and passionate about the care of the donkeys they rescue. They work many hours and will travel great distances for a donkey in need. They will take in any donkey in need of assistance; regardless of the time and money that it takes to rehabilitate the animal. Each donkey they take in, becomes a part of their family and the rescue is their temporary home until they become adopted and find their forever home. They screen potential adopters to ensure that each animal adopted will have a suitable home. This is a great, caring rescue that I highly recommend to anyone looking to adopt. Some of the best people you will ever meet!!!

Review for Lusco Farms Rescue, Malvern, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I just want to let everyone know what a great organization that Lusco Farms Rescue is and I should know..I adopted two donkeys from them! It was November/December 2013 when I decided that I wanted to adopt a donkey. After researching them and realizing that they bond with one another, I decided to adopt two.
I found Lusco Farms Rescue and began communicating with them via email as they had two little ones that were a bonded pair, that I was interested in. I emailed them numerous times and they always emailed me back. I asked questions...they answered. In late January my husband and I had the chance to go to Malvern and meet Scott and Lura and see the donkeys. Scott and Lura were very willing and able to answer questions, let us spend time with the donkeys and tell us about some of the rescues. We fell in love with the donkeys and knew we wanted to give them a home. Problem...middle of winter, we have no fence, no shelter set up for them!! We explained this to Scott and Lura and they didn't think that was a problem. We were told that they would continue caring for the donkeys until we were ready for them to come home!!! We adopted our babies; Nick and Max that day. They were delivered to us on April 5th personally by Scott, Lura, and Josh. They took the time to show us how to give immunizations/dewormer, explained the immunizations that they have had, ferrier work done and then took the time to look at our setup for Nick and Max and give recommendations etc.
I honestly know that if I have questions/concerns that I can contact them and that they will offer advice.
Lusco Farms Rescue is an awesome rescue and I am so happy that I found them.
Please, if you're thinking about getting a donkey or two, contact Lusco Farms Resuce!!! If you can't adopt but are able to donate; this is a non-profit that is very deserving!!
