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.

Four years ago I adopted Braveheart and Prada from Serenity. It absolutely changed my life and opened my eyes. I've been following Serenity ever since and am so thankful there is an organization like this out there and people like Patricia. Serenity is truly the voice for these horses.

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: http://amusingcommunityperspective.wordpress.com/2011/11/04/dr-jekyll-and-mr-hyde-are-pseudonyms/

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!
