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 our rescued horses into loving permanent homes. We are passionate about providing a natural and focused care plan for each of our resident equines.  
We are also committed to supporting the equine community through our Education Center clinics and courses.  We also support our community by performing welfare checks and helping community horse owners to provide the best care for their horses.

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.  Please click on Horses as Healers to read about this new program.

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.

Learn the different ways you can help Serenity Horses
Serenity's horses depend on the tax-deductible contributions of our wonderful donors - we depend entirely on private donations and the occasional grant to continue our mission. Donate today - your dollars go directly to feeding and caring for the horses!  Go to our Donate page to learn about how many ways you can help the horses at Serenity.

Volunteer with Serenity!

Volunteers are the heart of Serenity.  We could not do the work that we do without you.  If you are interested in working around horses (and a few piggies) we need reliable, regular volunteers around the farm! If you are interested in helping out please contact Serenity at volunteer@serenityequinerescue.com.
Orientations are held most Saturdays of each month at 10am. These orientations last for about 45 minutes and volunteers are encouraged to stay and work after the orientation. Please visit our Volunteer page for more information.

One Time Only Button

We have two new rescues!

Meet He's Peakin and Hulk.  
These two wonderful horses lost their home. He's Peakin was adopted by a couple about 4 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, he is back to being ambulatory and will be good as new.  Click here to read about Peakin's injury and healing.

 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!

Horses as Healers
We have postponed our clinics until we complete some needed projects on the farm.  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.

Click on Rescuing Grays Harbor Horses for the full story and pictures of Little D and his 3 friends that have come to Serenity.
