Yes do your research, in fact, join them on facebook and keep up with it like I do. I have seen the horses they help save and if it was not for them hundreds of horses would be slaughtered. So why would you want this horse sent to slaughtered because you "heard" bad things? Please if that were the case no one would like anyone. Anyway let.s forget about ourselves and think about this horses life. Thank you.
People should be very wary of any rescues that come across like the OP. Money was sent to one rescuer on COTH and they promptly bought themselves a nice new trailer and bred more unwanted horses from her unregistered rescue stallion( offspring that she could not pawn off to the people in her area).
I am a follower of FUGLY and before ANYONE sends money to this person read the unhappy results of one person that dealt with this ...ummmm organization.
