Raise The Barn - Where are we now? Update....
This past year we have been working diligently to complete all the projects on our permit. Tha barn foundation project has been completed, carriage house stairs, drainagle plan is in place and we just have a few small tasks to complete.
This was a long, hard struggle and we are so relieved that we will soon be able to put it behind us and get on with our mission, saving horses, educating the public and implementing our therapy program.
The ASPCA comes to Serenity
Serenity was visited by two national representatives of the ASPCA Jacque Schultz and Stacy Segel It was an honor to host both of them and to get an opportunity to show off our farm and to share our work and accomplishments with them.
We are proud to be able to announce that we have received a $5000 grant from the ASPCA to upgrade our fencing and to build new paddocks. This generous grant from the ASPCA will allow us to provide a much safer environment and better care for our horses.
WE are grateful to the ASPCA for their support and honored to be chosen by one of our nations most respected animal advocate organizations.
Serenity is dedicated to helping our community to understand and become horse savvy. We are also dedicated to helping our neighbors in our community to become more responsible horse owners through education and support.
Serenity has developed a series of classes to help support those in our community that own horses or would like to own a horse in the future. Go to the Education Center for the schedule and a description of the classes.

We now have an Animal Communication clinic that is in place and which is offered once a month at Serenity. Read more about this wonderful clinic and Neave
If you, your friend or a neighbor is in need of help or advice on how to care for a malnourished or rescued horse, don't hesitate to contact us.
We are here for you as well as the horse and will always help where we can.
If you see a horse that you believe needs help and are not comfortable calling other agencies we will do a welfare check and contact the appropriate people if needed.
Always report animal cruelty! Go to our Reporting Abuse for more information on cruelty and abuse and Washington State Laws that protect our animals and you.
Go Green: Free compost and manure
Our farm is already quite "green". We use solar power for electric fences, and we do not use chemicals on our plants and landscape. We also do a lot to reduce our waste, electricity use and soil erosion. But as you can guess, horses produce a lot of manure. Because we clean our outdoor paddocks, pastures and stalls daily to keep them clear of manure, not only do we keep the farm looking neat, but we also keep away insects and flies, which helps us avoid using any chemicals
We currently manage our compost by covering and turning it regularly. It has been tested by local government and is completely organic. The Issaquah Park Department has used hundreds of yards for park projects in the Issaquah area.
If you'd like some free compost for your own garden or nursery, please drop by any day between 10am and 2pm.

At Serenity we continuously look for ways to educate people, share our stories and open the doors of our rescue for others to experience the power of helping save an equine. For more info on any events or programs please
