What a great organization! My 10 year old daughter raised money for her birthday to donate to help a horse rescue. She emailed 6 of them, and this is the only one which responded. They were very kind and told my daughter that she was amazing to choose to donate instead of getting gifts. We ended up driving 3 hours to bring a horse blanket to one of the horses personally. The people at SAFE were really great and do great work for the horses..

I love the work SAFE does to help horses in need. I follow SAFE horses - both current horses and horses that have found new lives through SAFE. I love hearing the stories of how they reach out to horses in need. Also, I have attended their fun show (entry fees used to help horses). Someday when I'm able to adopt a horse in need (currently have 2 horses) I will go to SAFE.

I watched SAFE acquire a horse that I used to know (was a friends horse). They put weight and rides on him and found him a new home.

I was so impressed with the care horses receive at this facility. They don't have a lot to work with financially, but make every dollar count.

Almost two years ago, one of my beloved horses passed away, and left behind a very lonely buddy. SAFE was able to match us up with a foster horse to be a companion to Mac. Fostering was a great option for us, and helped us through a very difficult time. When we lost Mac to age related issues, we brought in a second foster horse.

I've found the SAFE organization a very compassionate and caring group of folks. They truly put the needs of the horses first and they are committed to doing what's right for horses that are many times abused or abandoned. They are great folks who really make a difference.

One of my foster horses was severely neglected before being surrended. The before and after photos are amazing. She needed an incredible amount of care to regain her health, but she is now very healthy and beautiful. She would not have survived without the help of SAFE.

The one change I would make to SAFE would be to allow them to expand their facility so that they could provide care to more horses. Because of the economy, the need is greater than ever.

This is a very worthwhile organization, especially in these times of economic difficulties when many people are abandoning their horses. This group provides much care with very limited resources and depends totally upon private donations and volunteers.

SAFE and their leadership have demonstrated consistent execution and alignment to their core principles with integrity, transparency and accountability for their actions, distribution of funds and responsibility to their beneficiaries, contributors and the community at large.

The Great!

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

I have contributed financially to this organization and they have published their financials which demonstrate the direct impact of donations with virtually no expenditure for any overhead that isn't associated with a direct cost related to rescued horses.

SAFE relies entirely on volunteers, there is not a salaried executive director or any other paid staff. A donation to safe results in a direct impact and benefit to the rescued horses. If it were possible to extend the outreach and sponsorship of reduced cost gelding or humane euthenasia to reduce the number of horses that are shipped for slaughter it could make a bigger impact on the community.

S.A.F.E. may be the best rescue I have ever seen in my life. Their dedication to their horses truly makes them a class act. They have brought back hope to countless lives through their devotion to saving these magnificent creatures. This has been shown through all of the work they do to bring back destroyed animals to happy souls and raise them up to be who they were meant to be.
SAFE is honest in everything they do. Whether that be providing training for horses in order to find them Forever Homes, or simply giving them their dinner, you know that SAFE cares for their horses.
I have not visited their facility in person, but I have followed their website and horses for months thanks to their wonderful online updates. One day, although it may not be in my future now, I would like to give a SAFE Horse a Forever Home.
Save a Forgotten Equine Horse Rescue has made me laugh, cry, and smile by the work they do to restore hope. They are the Mercedes of Horse Rescues. Thank you, SAFE, for what you do.

I have worked in fundraising for SAFE. I am continually amazed at what this group does not only for horses but for the community in terms of support. I am specifically impressed with the detailed fiancial statements availible to anyone. That alone gives me confidence to fundraise for this organization. My only criticism of this organization is that they are so small. The work that is accomplished by these people with frankly, a tiny budge, is amazing. I hope that reviews like this hope spread the word on this critically important charity and brings in support.

The Great!

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

seeing the physical and psychological rehabilitation of dozens of animals that I thought were unsavable. I visited them and worked with a few and the transformations from the starved and neglected beginnings into beautiful show-worthy athletes are amazing. Also, I have interacted with adoptors whose lives have been transformed by the horses they have gotten through SAFE.

As I mentioned earlier, I would love to see this charity grow.

I personally became acquainted with SAFE when I was actively working and volunteering at horse rescues. Since that time, I have focused my energies more on youth outreach projects as an actlve leader and board member of our county 4-H Horse Program. Our 4-H members have become involved in community service projects on behalf of SAFE and other local non-profits. They have donated horse tack both from our annual program sale event and from invididual and club fundraisers. Many members and other local families have attended the SAFE Benefit Horse Shows and thoroughly enjoyed and learned from these charitable events. Having an organization like SAFE is a valuable asset to our local horse community. I am proud to call them out as a reputable and ethical community service that sets a positive example for the youth of Washington State.

The Great!

like to see more people get involved with and contribute to this outstanding local community service.
