SAFE placed two horses with a client of mine and I was so impressed with the whole transaction. They sent someone out to look at what my client had to offer. They checked for safety and comfort for the horses and suitability of the herd they would be entering into. They then selected two horses that best met the needs of my client. They then transported the two and made sure the transition went smoothly. They were in contact with them every step of the way and they continue to get updates. What a joy it is to find an organization that cares so deeply for these horses who in many instances would end up at a slaughter house. I have recommended a check of their site to many of my horse friends, trainers and clients. I can only hope that with support they can continue their very worthwhile venture.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the placement of foster horses

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do nothing, they are doing a great job.

I know Jodi, a weekly volunteer at Save and her love & passion for these extaordinary animals is inspiring. I'm greatful to all of their volunteers, taking time from busy lives to care and love these animals
and show them the good in the world. It's what is right in the world. My favorite thing that Jodi does is to buy horse treats and when they see her coming they know right away it's going to be a good day. They come running up to her and she gets nudged and bumped until she hands over
the goods!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing stories about the different horses that come in

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

post more pictures, have more public venues, etc.

I have followed this organization from their beginning. They have done amazing work. This is one horse rescue that maintains a transparent policy. They post their financials for all to see. The one time I remember a horse they adopted out wasn't taken care of, they took him back, rehabbed him and adjusted their policies so it would not happen again. Truly an above board, effective rescue.

Following horses that I contributed toward through their rehabbing, training and placement.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase their capacity.

Keep up the great work S.AF.E. You are filling an important void here in Western Washington. Thank you for your love and compassion to a population of wonderful horses that others would just as soon give up on. All of God's creatures deserve respect and love. Two thumbs up!

SAFE tremendously helps horses who are abused & forgotten. They understand what the horses need & want, and are always there to provide to their best ability. They go above and beyond what is required, and genuinely care for the horses well-being.

A horse I know is a SAFE horse, and he has become much more positive & approachable due to SAFE.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None.

A friend of mine works with SAFE and I believe wholeheartedly in the importance of the organization. People certainly know about dogs and cats in need of rescue but few think that horses fall into this category. SAFE helps those animals who have no one else and gives them voice.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Focus on more publicity, possibly try to get a celebrity spokesperson (ex: William Shatner shows horses).

SAFE is one of the best horse rescues out there! I have been out to take photos of some of their horses. They look content and well cared for. SAFE has many volunteers and seems to be well organized. The people are really nice. The horses they take on get great care and training, before they are placed into new homes. I am very impressed with their savvy of new media and creativity to get their word out.

I know one of their mares that has been adopted out which is a very sweet and well behaved pony.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't know anything that would make them better as they already are.

SAFE provides a critical service to some of the most seriously neglected and abused horses in our communities. I am a grateful supporter of their rescue and the safety net they offer to humans and horses who reach out to them for help.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Reading the wonderful stories of their rescued horses; personally assisted a friend in rescuing horses from the feed lot.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None.
