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.
1. Check out our available horses. 2. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to meet the horse you're interested in and submit a pre-adoption application (downloadable just click on the name adoption application on the left hand side at the bottom of this page). We cannot process an incomplete application, so please fill out all fields. 3. We invite you to include property photos to expedite the process. If you live more than 50 miles from our farm, current pictures of your facility are required. Pictures must include shelter areas, stalls, turnout and fences. 4. Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted to let you know if you are pre-approved. 5. At that time we may make an appointment for you to come spend more time with the horse so we can determine if you are a good fit for each other. 6. A site visit is performed before final approval. 7. Once approved, you pay your adoption fee and sign our legally binding adoption contract. At this time the horse is formally adopted and may be transported to its new home. Any horse unable to be taken directly to its new home at the time of adoption (when the adoption fee is paid) can board at Serenity for a prorated boarding fee based on our monthly costs, which is currently $450. If the fee is not paid at the time of adoption, the fee is due when the horse is picked up or delivered. The boarding fee does not include veterinary care, farrier services or other incidental costs. We are unable to accept trades in lieu of an adoption fee. We prefer cash or money order for the adoption fee, but will accept PayPal. PayPal fees will be added to the adoption cost.
