Promoting the Humane & Responsible Treatment of Horses
Serenity's Mission is multi-faceted.  It includes rescue, rehabilitation, education and healing. 
After rescue and rehabilitation we work to place our horses into loving permanent homes. We are passionate about providing a natural and focused care plan for each of our resident equines including physical and emotionally rehabilitation and training.  
We are also committed to supporting the equine community through our Education Center clinics and courses for horse owners to help them to provide the best care for their horses.

We perform welfare checks,  and help those in our community who need support to keep their horses if they have fallen on hard times through the Jasper Family Community Fund. 

We believe that the relationship between humans and horses is a very special one.  Many of our volunteers and others have experienced a special gift of healing when working or visiting the farm.   Horses as Healers,focuses on healing and developing life skills.  

We offer several courses through our Education Center.  Patricia, our Executive Director is a member of the Association of Professional Humane Educators and has 30 years of teaching experience in Higher Education.


Serenity has been awarded one of the first top-rated non-profit awards from Great Non-Profits for 2018.  Serenity has earned this very prestigious award for 11 years in a row!

Meet He's Peakin and Hulk. 
These two wonderful horses lost their home. He's Peakin was adopted by a couple about 5 years ago.  He was rescued by Serenity from the kill-pen at the age of 2 having raced way to young and thus suffered a serious injury.  

Peakin' returned to Serenity in June along with his pasture mate Hulk.  Both are very sweet.  Peakin came in with a life-threatening injury and through the work of our wonderful veterinarian, Dr. DeWard and a very special farrier, Jake Treat, who made Peakin a Hospital Shoe from a bar of steel so he could walk. Peakin has completely healed and both he and Hulk are ready for adoption.

 Meet Harley and Radish

Harley and Radish were neglected for almost a year as their owner spent most of her money on drugs.  Neighbors tried on many, many occasions to get help for them.  Finally, the neighbor next door called Serenity.  Read their story Harley and Radish - innocent victims of the drug epidemic!

Thank you to our Maple Valley friends and neighbors for nominating Serenity for the Maple Valley 2016 Non-Profit of the year.

Please support Serenity with your gift today so that we can continue to give the best care to both our horses and the people who come to Serenity.  

Horses as Healers
Our clinics are currently focused on group work.  Please check our Facebook page for event scheduling. 

Our clinics offer an opportunity to be validated and acknowledged  by compassionate healer horses who will allow you to experience a level of healing that is deeply and profoundly freeing.  The Serenity horses have lots of practice helping to facilitate and support those who are working through difficult issues. 

We rescued 4 mini stallions from a hoarding situation in Grays Harbor.  All of the boys have been gelded, except Little D who was too old to geld.
