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.

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.
