My horse shares a barn with a SAFE rescue horse and up until that time I didn't know any "rescuses" personally. This awesome guy was saved from sure death and has had a loving environment in which he thrives and is very much a part of the herd. SAFE is an organization that not only rescues horses but works with all areas of horse owner education and equine rehabilitation. As our world gets smaller and the economy is changing SAFE has had to work even harder to create and maintain a safe and quality environment for horses and people. Contributing to SAFE directly contributes to many areas of prevention and good quality education for anyone interested in equine ownership, volunteering or just loving horses from afar .

I've long been interested in the issue of horse rescue and rehabilitation. And in recent months, I've had the honor of learning more about SAFE and its leadership. I"ve been director of another nonprofit organization in the Seattle and am familiar with the challenges of engaging volunteers and using their talents efficiently and consistently. SAFE does a fantastic job of this and runs a very tight operation. I'm impressed and hope to be supporting this effort more in the future in the area of organizational development and fundraising.

SAFE is a rescue I can truly support and stand behind. Boasting impressive organization, transparency, ethics and passion for rescue. I love getting the frequent updates and watching the progress of their rescued horses. They go above and beyond just rescue - they fully rehabilitate, train, and do a fantastic job placing these horses! I can feel good about donating to such a honorable organization, because I can actually see where my dollar goes. As a professional in the horse community, I fully recommend and support SAFE as a invaluable resource to our community.

I have first hand knowledge of a horse that SAFE rescued and placed in a home. He is a horse that most likely was down to his last chance and they brought him back and gave him the possibility to have a new life. He has been with three people since SAFE took him in and they took the time and effort to find the right home for him. Their screening process is in depth as they want a real forever home for the horses and it has payed off in the long run for them. He is just an ordinary horse, but very special to the one who now has him for he is well loved and loves well.

S.A.F.E. is and excellent rescue. I'm familiar with several equine rescues and this one is the most organized and caring one I've had any association with. The horses get wonderful care and training in order to find them appropriate homes. This is the rescue that our local youth club donates their time and necessities too as well.

S.A.F.E does a good job of providing transitional care for horses in need; provides good vet & farrier care, training and screening of potential adoptors. They seem to have be transparent about accounting for donated funds.
