I have been to several horse rescues and Serenity is definitely one of the best. They are well organized and the farm is very, very clean. Every horse is given the best of care. Each has a nutrition plan, regular veterinary and farrier care and is given lots of attention.
The volunteer
program is wonderful. Everyone works hard and enjoys each other and the opportuity to spend time with the horses. Great therapy!
The education program gives everyone an opportunity to learn about horse behavior, nutrition, and handling, and a number of different holistic approaches to health care.

I have assisted many small rescue groups, helping some mature into 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. (During this growth it is not unusual for a group to struggle with the new administrative and legal requirements, and sometimes volatile personal conflicts, as most members prefer to focus on the actual "rescue work.") While not advising SERR, I have followed SERR's work since it initially took on a huge burden of extremely neglected horses seized by the County, and did a magnificent job of saving them. I was unaware until recently that some of the earlier Directors and/or Officers apparently lacked the administrative experience and knowledge to handle the conflicts and issues that are common in new charities. Unfortunately, instead of using their authority to resolve any problems, these individuals simply left. (Then one or more actively worked to damage SERR's reputation in as many venues as possible.) Fortunately, SERR's founder sought, and has now found, dedicated professionals willing to step in, with a plan of action that will work. SERR continues to rescue and place horses in need, and with a mature and dedicated Board, this excellent facility, and the horses it takes in, will continue to thrive.

The Great!

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

its dedication to overcome obstacles -- from growing pangs to a struggling regional economy -- to continue to be there for the horses. It has been inspiring, and heartwarming, to see so many people come together to give the horses continued care.

I work with this charity on a daily basis. I provide proffessional services on a pro bono basis and I also volunteer. I wonder why former board members critisize the director when it is the board member who is responsible for the organization. Sounds like a very naive young woman unfamiliar with her role on a non profit board. Too bad she is unaware of her own responsibility. Experiences and opinions of those who have not seen or been to Serenity in over a year should take a second look at the agengy they served.

I have had direct on site experience and have personally observed the level of care, voluteer efforts, overall condition of horses and grounds. These horses are the most well cared for in the state of Washington.

Ways to make it better...

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

I would provide a salary to the director, and compensation for the use of the private property used for the organization. None has been provided since its inception. The executive director recieves no compensation. This is truly generous, but unfair.

This rescue totally has missappropriated donor funds to feed her own horses. She has allowed rescue horses to breed. Many horses have died due to lack of vet care. There is never enough food for the horses and meds are not given. One good thing. The money and grants given has sure made her house and property look nice. Financials are not given when requested!

Person several times and interviews with Patricia and several volunteers both currently there and those that have left. There is a large turn over of help. ALL have the same concerns.
