Message from Seller - safehorses

Since 2005, Save a Forgotten Equine (SAFE) has been rescuing and rehabilitating horses that have been starved, neglected, abused or are unwanted. We have formal agreements in place with Animal Control agencies in King, Pierce and Skagit counties to support their fight to protect horses in this region. SAFE also provides assistance to horse owners struggling to care for their animals in the current economy.

SAFE is deeply committed to its rescued horses. We have extensive experience in equine rehabilitation and have successfully brought many neglected horses back from the brink of starvation. Our rehabilitation efforts are supported by local veterinarian Dr Hannah Evergreen DVM’s Northwest Equine Stewardship Center as well as Pilchuck Equine Hospital. All of our horses are provided with routine vet care, dental care, vaccinations, and farrier care. Once a horse has been successfully rehabilitated, we carefully evaluate them to discover their strengths and suitabilities, and we provide many of these horses with professional training to help ensure them a safe and productive future. While at SAFE, horses receive a lot of personal attention and handling. Our rideable horses are worked on a regular basis, with many being ridden in lessons under the supervision of a trainer.

Once a horse is ready for a permanent home, SAFE undertakes a rigorous screening process to find the ideal placement. We carefully review applications, check references, and conduct site visits, with the goal of finding a long-term home that will benefit both horse and adopter. After a horse is placed into its forever home, annual follow-up visits are conducted to ensure the animal’s continued well-being and SAFE will take a horse back if its adopter can’t continue to care for it.

Despite our years of success helping horses in the local area, SAFE remains a small, modest organization that operates on a shoestring budget and works hard to make every penny count. We rely on public donations for 77% of our operating income, and our average donation amount is $15. The majority of the funds we raise are used to feed, house, care for and train our horses…essentially paying for everything possible to ensure them a safe and productive future. We have minimal management expenses, no fundraising budget, and only two paid employeea. The heart of SAFE is our volunteers — from our Board of Directors to our weekend warriors out on the farm — an incredible group of people who believe in SAFE’s mission and give the best of their talents and energy to make it succeed.
