Given my recent personal experience with Serenity and its purpose I'm disappointed in those people placing negative comments here. I'm more disappointed in those individuals hiding behind pseudonyms; kind of like showing up at a protest in masked costume. I really don't put a lot of trust in negative reviews from people who don't use their real name and conceal their identity. In a way, it epitomizes what is wrong worldwide and is just another false flag of sorts; in this case cloaked provocation on a worthy cause with intent to harm. I wrote a blog,"Dr. Jekll and Mr. Hyde", recently on this type of attack, which you can read on the following website:

I have known of Serenity since it started it's existance. SERR has a reputation of being willing to step in where others will not. They are very willing to do whatever it takes to help the horses. Their horses all look wonderful and the before/after pictures are outstanding. This rescue fulfills it's mission of "Rescue and Rehabilition" with amazing results. Good job!

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

In all avenues of rescue and rehabiliton this rescue does a top notch job.

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

There are very few changes that I could suggest and they are all very minor.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I've most enjoyed watching the transformation in abused and neglected horses that turn into stunning and lovely animals.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have met all the staff and volunteers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Create a world class rehabilitation facility for all the neglected horses of Western WA.

Ways to make it better...

There were labels on the horses' paddocks telling you who was in there and what their story was.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting the word out about the good work that they do.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This rescue does not go all around putting its name forward like other organizations. This rescue instead focuses on doing their work and doing it well.
