Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Serenity Saviors is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization and a Florida registered nonprofit. We are an equine rescue located in Spring Hill, Florida. Serenity Saviors' mission is to offer horses salvation from high-risk and life threatening situations, such as neglect, abuse, and slaughter. We offer a chance for them to recapture their brillance by giving them time to heal and recover physically as well as emotionally... They learn to be useful and loved again. We provide each animal with the care, training, and space to recover, for however long they need. While our goal is to find lifelong, loving homes for our horses, those who have suffered too much in their past will remain with the rescue to live out their lives in a caring, comfortable fashion. If a horse cannot recover, they live with us while they are comfortable and will cross over with dignity and with friends by their side. Decisions are made based on what is best for each horse on an individual basis. Every horse that comes into our rescue will receive immediate medical attention to address all immediate physical needs and they will receive ongoing veterinary and farrier care thereafter. A rehabilitation and training program is tailored for each horse to help them reach their full potential and to address the emotional and physical scars that cruelty or neglect has left on their lives. We hope to educate the community on responsible equine stewardship, prevent future cruelty, and bring awareness of the need to end the inhumane slaughter of horses. Our ultimate goal is to find lifelong, loving homes that are the perfect fit for the horse and their new adoptive family. *****

I adopted a saddlebred mare from Serenity Saviors and the experience from the first communication until the delivery of my fabulous horse was nothing but spectacular. The care and dedication they give to their saved horses is evident from every aspect of the business. They really work with you and help you choose the horse that best fits your needs. They are not just trying to adopt out a horse but really try to fine them a Furever home. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to adopt a rescue! Lisa

I have not seen the farm in person - but the pictures of it show I wonderful place for rescue horses to rehab at. The majority of rescue horses are scared. They do not understand what is going on around them. Being moved from their known surroundings to all over the country takes a very hard toll on the horses' spirit. The people that work and own Serenity understand this. They work very hard to fund raise and get the horses they can save to a safe environment
as soon as possible. They use extreme care in moving these poor souls from the kill pen to their rehab home. The greatest pleasure these volunteers get is to find a forever home for the "throw always" . They give these broken souls a new life and chance to live a healthy, loving life. They go beyond to make sure that horse and new potential owners are a match and if not give the horse a place to land until another home can be found. These people are "true horse angels" and I have been proud and happy to follow their stories and seen their loving results.

Serenity Saviors are one of very few rescues that not only rescue Saddlebreds from Kill Pens but transport, re-habilitate, train, board and re-home these horses out of their own pocket. They keep these horses in beautiful stables with top of the line care. I just can't say enough great things about Cherina and Allen of Serenity Saviors. They are amazing people who do amazing things by giving these horses a second chance at life.
