Mission: Serenity's Mission is multi-faceted. It includes rescue, rehabilitation, education and healing. Our foremost goal is to help rehabilitate, care for and place our rescued horses into loving homes. We are passionate about providing a natural and focused care plan for each of our resident equines. We are also committed to supporting the equine community through our Education Center clinics and courses. We believe that the relationship between humans and horses is a very special one. Many of our volunteers and others have experienced a special gift of healing when working or visiting the farm. You can read more about Horses as Healers on our Events and Programs page. We are located on a farm in Maple Valley, Washington.

Target demographics: our equine companions and our community through education and equine therapy.

Geographic areas served: several counties in Washington state. We have rescued, rehabbed and rehomed hundreds of horses since 2007 and provide sanctuary to many more. We have expanded our programs to include Education with our Education Center, Jasper Family Community Fund to help those in our community in need of support and Healing through our Horses as Healers program. We have been named the Best of Western Washington non-profits and been featured in both the Seattle magazine and in the nationally recognized horse health magazine Equine Wellness in September of 2015.

A friend volunteers at the ranch and I have tagged along a few times to help. All the people that volunteer here care about the animals immensely and love what they do there. Which is a lot of hard work, but it is all for the horses, and everyone does it with a smile. Patricia and her team do an outstanding job of caring for the horses and providing them with all the essentials and love they deserve.
Anybody looking to support whether financially or giving time would come away feeling like it was money or time well spent.

My daughter is a volunteer and her participation has allowed me to see what a great service Serenity provides. Animals that would otherwise be destroyed are rescued and given new opportunities. These animals bring awareness to everyone who comes into contact with them. They are well cared for and have a great life

Serenity equine rescue and rehabilitation has raised my awareness about race horses and the damage it can do to young horses. Their facilities are clean and the horses a taken care of by wonderful volunteers who genuinely care about the well being of the horses.

I visited SERR with a friend who volunteers there. I found the owner to be very passionate about the horses there and all animals. The facility was very clean and well maintained. I came away with a very positive experience and hope for the future of the horses who were lucky enough to be there.
